QKR Stampede - DT card for challenge #275 - ATG with a Santa option

MERRY CHRISTMAS!   I am sending wishes that all of you will have a blessed Christmas season, and all the best in the new year.  We have had our share of health issues in our family this year as well as the loss of friends and family members.  In spite of the sadness, we have had more than our share of joy, and are thankful to God for the many blessings we receive each day.

This is probably my first Christmas card for 2018.  I do have one final card ready to mail for 2017 - just waiting for an address.  I think we are not receiving as many cards, and I am trying to cut back a little - and sending some by e-mail.
The weekly challenge at  QKR Stampede is the usual anything goes, with the option of including Santa.  My version, called "Bringing a Tree", shows a Santa about as far behind in preparations as I am.  At least his miniature tree will not take long to decorate LOL!  I used Twinkling H20 ink, markers, and stickles (for the fur and tiny snowflakes) to finish him.  The sentiment is also available through the QKR Stampede Store.  The dies are Spellbinder Labels 4, and the snowflake is a punch.  The strip is glittery wire edged ribbon.
