Wow - only two weeks to wait now for Santa's arrival, and here I am with my first DT card for OSAAT!
This is quite a loooong Post, so please pull up a chair and grab a cuppa!
OK everyone - to get you in the holiday spirit, Stitchy and the DT at OSAAT have come up with a fab. challenge for the festive Holidays, starting  December 12th, ending January 9th, and the winner will receive a £10 voucher to spend here -
