Dear Santa.....

Not the best photo, I seem to have had a relapse, and had a terrible night with no sleep, slept all morning then woke with no voice, apart from which I have been a little deaf for two days. Went back to bed for a few hours, and slept in a chair all evening so I probably won't sleep tonight now.

I did manage to colour this sweet stamped image yesterday, and die cut it. I've kept it CAS, just adding some ribbon (from Crafty Ribbons) and die cutting it, this could be more because I am ill than anything else.

I took the photo on an easel on the desk, don't feel up to getting the photo studio out tonight.

The stamp is from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps, and the image is by Rachel Anne Miller called A Letter to Santa, and when I spent my recently won voucher I had to add this one to my order because I fell in love with it. I know we don't have this sort of mail box over here, but it is so cute!
