Savannah with a star on top.

Hi everyone. I hope this finds you all well, happy and, those who celebrate it, ready for Christmas!

This is going to be my last post before Christmas as I'm having so many problems with my tablet even with just trying to switch it on now so it'll have to go to computer 'hospital'. I also won't be able to comment on your posts as I struggle to write anything using my phone.
Today's card is made using a Stamping Bella Uptown Girl stamp, Savannah with a star on top. I don't usually buy stamps where the face only has eyes but these images are so girly I just can't resist them so have snuck a few into my craft cupboard (don't tell the hubby though! :D) This card is for my best friend so no expensive embellies are on this although I might ask for the wooden shapes back before it goes in the bin, lol! So here's my card, I hope you like it.

Luckily my lads, well men really, are both at home for Christmas. I'm not sure what time we'll see Chris on Christmas day though as he is working twelve hour days up to and including Christmas Eve from today so will be really tired but that's the life of a junior doctor! It could be worse though as his poor girlfriend is working Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day then has one day off and then back to work again. I feel awful that she won't be with her family at Christmas. I just hope her days go quickly for her.

Well, that's me for this year unless the computer guys can't fit me in. I wish you all the Happiest of Christmases and the Most Wonderful of New Year's!

Sending you all lots of hugs,
