Crafty Catz #528- Anything goes- Optional Twist - Christmas

 Good morning- what a week it's been! My eldest granddaughter (13) has tested positive for Covid and I'm waiting to hear the results of my daughter and younger granddaughter's tests, Both of them have had mild symptoms and were tested yesterday, just so grateful that none of them are feeling ill and keeping my fingers crossed it stays that way. Will be popping over later to leave some goodies on their doorstep, but believe me, I'm keeping my distance!  Up until just over a week ago I didn't personally know anyone who had the virus, but now in this short time, it seems to be spreading like wildfire here. Worrying.
Please, all of you, be careful out there and stay as safe as you can.
Anyway, back to todays card. It's for this week's challenge at Crafty Catz,

 sponsored by LeAnn's World 101

Our lovely host this week is Ginny, she's chosen the theme of Christmas which is, as always, optional.
The DT were given some lovely sponsor images to play with, I used one of the images from the Aerin set.
Please do hop over and check out the Challenge Blog, there is plenty of fabulous inspiration from the Crafty Catz ladies to admire and we hope you'll want to play along this week.
Thanks for stopping by today.

Hi Chris,
oh my word I am so sorry that your Granddaughter has it.
Lets hope the rest of the families tests are okay.
My Great Niece had it but none of her family got it thank goodness.
Love the wonderful card and I do love a bit of Tartan on a Christmas card.
Beautiful emboosing folder used also.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Great use of the lovely die and EF and a great Santa's sack.
Both Grandsons sent home from school Tuesday of last week as a couple in both their classes have the virus and both had been in close proximity to them but while not been tested they have shown no symptoms as yet and I am praying they don't.

What a worrying time for you. I despair of people getting together in large groups at Christmas as iCovid will just continue to spiral out of control until we can get a vaccine for it. Love your tartan card. It isn’t Christmas without a bit of tartan. Hugs Mrs A.

It really is scary Chris and I hope and pray your daughter and Granddaughter will be fine asap! We are going into lockdown again on Friday and this weekend my poor son, who works in Vodaphone said he has never seen so many people in the shopping centre at one time! Can only mean trouble with all this panic Christmas present buying! Wish I had that big sack of presents sitting here, gorgeous card.
