Here comes Santa Claus......

This is a picture of my oldest girl Bethany who is eleven, I made these little cards to display
photographs I had taken of the children at Bethanys school for school funds.Each child got to see Santa and got a lovely book as a present.It was well worth doing and all the money went to the school.
