Hey, Nic! Wish I only had one more present to get!?! This gift lark seems to get harder every year and there sems to be so little inspiration in the shops too...at this rate I'll be wearing a nightshirt and shouting 'Bah, humbug!' if I don't watch out!
Your Santa card really is very jolly and I love the scrummy polka dot ribbon and cute little bells! Hugs, Lisa x
