A letter from Dasher


Hello, It's been a nice dry and bright winter's day here so we trekked the dogs through the woods again.  Amazingly by the time we arrive back home again the dogs are both white again, they sure aren't white when we're on the walk!  Luckily it all drops off onto the towels in the back of the car - Steve cleans the car so that's not so bad!

Here is the card I have made using Claire's fabulous reindeer image.  I am very honoured as she drew this specially for me to use for Santa's Reindeer letters.  Please pop over to Claire's blog as she has offered this image free and besides that, her blog is fab!  
I have decided against sending 9 identical cards so I've made this one as the 'intro' and the inside says that Tyler has been specially chosen to receive letters from Santa's Reindeers during December.  I have made all 9 reindeer letters and sent them all off to the c/o address so she won't be effected by any postal strike.  I've asked that whoever opens the package delivers one every few days to her.  I do hope she enjoys them.  It will be a terribly poignant time for the Mum as Tyler's sister: Postpal Madi, is seriously ill with nothing left that can be done for her.  This upsets me greatly but at least I have tried to bring a tiny diversion to the youngest sister.  I will try to load the reindeer letters to my sidebar if anyone wants to have a smile!

Back soon with another card.

Thank you for looking,
Keryn x 

ETA - I am unable to link a word doc to my blog so I can't show a reindeer letter, sorry.

Thats so heartbreaking keryn. This card will definitely help a little and its certainly better than doing nothing. He is a lovely reindeer and you have coloured him beautifully.

A gorgeous card Keryn! Such a great reindeer image and a lovely gesture from Claire to support you and the little girl who's going to receive the reindeer letters you've sent, I'm sure they'll help her a huge amount at such a hard time. I think you're lovely! Chris xx
