Stitchery Santa


I'm so glad it has stopped raining and for the first time this week the sun is out here - but i better say it quietly as it might hear and rain again !!, i feel really sorry for those people hit by floods at the moment, i know where my Father In Law lives in West Yorkshire say's it's really bad (fortunately he's not been flooded).

I bought this stamp on a well known auction site, but as i love the old fashioned PB stamps, i just had to have it, the date is 1997.   I've used some fabby Bo Bunny - 'Mistletoe' papers that fell into my basket, while i was ordering some double sided tape !!!The tree is a Marianne D Creatable and i'm using it for the first time, even though i've had it for a while !!.
