A Busy Little Mouse

With just a few more days to go before the big fella in the red suit visits,
I still have quite a few cards in my 'drafts' folder, so you may be seeing
Christmas cards into the New Year!

I sent this card to one of my friends and her family.We trained as nurses
in the late 1960s, and she and I, along with another lady, have
remained firm friends all these years.

You will probably recognise this cute little mouse, ever so anxious to deliver
all his parcels. I bought the stamp many years ago, and I love to bring it 
out each year for at least 1 card.
