Gorjuss Girlie!

One of Katie's friends asked me the other day if I could make a Christmas card for her Mom. Yup of course, what do you want on it.....anything as long as its cute!! Ok....spoke to Katie & she looked through my stamps & decided on this fab GG even though she isn't a Christmas stamp I think its turned out ok, what do you think?

Thank you so much for popping by today, I hope you all have a fab weekend! We are off out shortly up the road to Buxton to take Charlie so he can play in the snow. I've never known a dog love getting covered in snow as much as him & the mad thing is as skinny as anything. 
With him being a greyhound there's nothing to him!! Tonight me & Nige are on our own, both the girlies are off down to Wembley arena to see 'You Me @ Six' thankfully their friends Mom is taking them. So peace & quite until tomorrow dinner time whoop!!
