Santa Claus is coming to Town

Hi, welcome to my little piece of blogdom today. We started off the day early - getting up and doing all the things required of starting the day off well! I took my blood readings and they were ok, had breakfast and then hubby and I drove to our son and DIL's house in peak hour traffic so we could babysit the two youngest grandchildren while our DIL went off to do a training course at the older granddaughter's school. She will now be able to listen to reading, go on school excursions and help the chaplain with a lunchtime club for any children who want to do different activities, one being cardmaking. She also has to get a police check before she can do any of these things!
We asked if our granddaughter would like to come and stay a couple of days and she was happy to do that. She ended up staying with Papa from about 2.30 - 6.15 p.m. as I went with my Mum to the funeral of one of her SIL's. It was a very late funeral, starting at 4.15 p.m. and we left there at 5 p.m. after deciding not to go down for the committal and the get together afterwards. It took us over an hour to get home as the traffic was so heavy. We have the Clipsal Car Race on for the next few days and it creates utter traffic chaos! We went out for a meal with 4 friends, Mum, our little granddaughter and two of our sons. I found out that the youngest son had just had an accident on a motorbike. Several cars in front of him stopped suddenly and he was on one of the work bikes and he locked up the brakes and slid into the car in front. I think he has just scraped his arm and leg, but his foot is swollen and of course he hasn't had it looked at yet. He is a motorbike mechanic and he had ridden one of the bikes out to pick something up for the boss. He had to go off to make a statement to the police tonight and as I dropped Mum home after our meal out, I haven't seen him as he had already gone off to bed.
I spent the rest of the night on the computer trying to find some cheap flights to Tasmania for Mum and me next month. Well, we've now booked and sorted out a car and all the accommodation except for 1 night so nothing more to do really until we pack to go at the end of April.
LOL, so ends another exciting day in the life of our family. There is always something!!!

Well I really better hurry up and share my card.
Basecard is SU Rose Red and then a layer of blue card from stash. The DP is from My Mind's Eye, Totally Girl. The image is a digi from Dulemba and was coloured with Copic Markers. I distressed the edges of the image piece and all the rose red matte.
The sentiment comes from SU Perfect Punches and inked in Certainly Celery and Real Red inks. I added some pale green ribbon with white spots and this cute little reindeer charm. The inside is a piece of the blue card and a strip of the DP.
I would like to enter this into the following:

Another lovely creation, and I know how frustratin' it can be to be stuck in traffic because there's something goin' on...the only road out of our village takes us past the Manchester City Football Club, and it's a nightmare when they are playing...arrggghh!
