So not Christmas

Happy Saturday everyone.  How are you today?  We popped into town this morning so Toad could get a haircut and to get a new Christmas tree (success on both counts).  Town was absolutely heaving so we were glad to get home and put the kettle on!

It's hard having a December birthday - sometimes you get overlooked completely because of Christmas, and it is difficult not to get a birthday card without snow on it!  It's my boss' birthday today and I bought this stamp specifically for her, simply because it looks so much like her.

So this is Honey - CC Designs Roberto's Amigas stamp
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and Polychromos Pencils
Papers are Maja Designs - Walk in The Forest
Sentiment is from Whimsy
Maple leaf punch by Martha Stewart
and corner dies by SCACD
ooh, and Stitched Circle die by Die-namics

Off to try and find the dining room table underneath all the tat so I have a space to start wrapping some presents.

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

This is so gorgeous Squirrel and I just know your boss loved it. I am like lots of other poor Capricorn's my birthday gets overlooked and if I get presents it's "That is for Christmas and your Birthday"

It's lovely Squirrel. I'm sure she loved it. I know what you mean about December birthdays, I have a couple of friends who have birthdays after 20th Dec. This one's a doll, and it's so sweet of you to buy the stamp just for her card. But I'm sure you'll get more use from it as it's very pretty.
Have a great Sunday

Whisper said...

It's a great card and I'm sure your boss will be pleased. I think you are right about December birthday babies getting slighted.

I like your description of how the town was heaving-very descriptive.
