Happy Friday . .. nearly the weekend!
Today is always the day that starts panic in the House of Hearts .. .. .. as today is Mr Heart's birthday .. .. .. which means that this time next week it will be Christmas Day! So close and yet still so very much to fit in!!
Having said "panic sets in" ... .. .. I have to admit that I think that only applies to me! Christmas always just seems to happen for everyone else in a lovely relaxed manner .. .. whereas I set myself up with a huge list of things I want to get done. Perhaps one day I will learn how to "get ahead of the game" .. .. but I somehow doubt it if I haven't managed it after all these years. Even if I was all up to date I would think of something else "I really want to get done"!!! LOL!! .
But one huge thing I don't need to worry about this year is the Christmas dinner! This year I am having it cooked for me! Yay!!! Treat of treats!!
Anyway, here is the card I made for Mr H's birthday using another pre-loved Penny Black stamp I gained recently.

and that is it!! Happy Birthday Mr Heart!!
I was asked what I had used to make the small star hole in the Christmas tags I posted on Tuesday .. .. it is a Fiskars star hand punch that I have had for many years that looks like this and is super strong. It punches through the front and back of a folded tag in one go:
Right time to get started on the day - I have an order to finish and get into the post today .. .. .. not looking forward to the queue at the Post Office!!!
Have a good one everyone and I hope to catch you again soon.
