All I want for Christmas is .. fast internet

How are you today my fine blogging friends :)

My header states that all I would like for Christmas is a faster internet speed ... but that's not entirely true ... I would also like a new printer, dies and a new chair for my desk (the screws in this one stick out and leave dents in my bottom ... funny but true).  And those are just the things I would like Santa to bring me as extras because I would also like a stress free, happy and healthy Christmas with my family.

So why the internet ... well have you noticed I haven't been around much?  Stupid internet .... it's so slow it took two days for my emails to download properly!!!  It has taken an hour for blogger to load up ..so not sure if I will even manage this post tonight ... fingers crossed.

Enough whining ............ here is my card .... oh actually ...... before I show you that I just have to tell you about my gorgeous girl Madalyn.  Poor sweet girl got stung by a bee on the top of her thumb today.  She was watering the plants and I think it must have been in the watering can or something.  Well she screamed and screamed and for a while it took me a while to work out what had happened as she wouldn't let me see.  I did the usual things ... flicked the sting out and applied ice.  But her hand ended up VERY swollen ... so another trip to the Doctors for my sweet girl.  She is so brave though.  An hour later she was back to her usual giggling self.

I've never been stung by a bee before ... but I imagine it is quite painful ... luckily once they sting you they die ... otherwise I would still be out there hunting down the bee that hurt my baby girl (yeah I know she's 2.5 years old .. but she's still my baby).

Ok .... you have been patient enough ..... here is my card.  (you thought it took a long time to read all of the above ... well it took nearly 2 hours to load these photos!!! aren't you glad you didn't have to read for that long he he he)

 I have used a really cute image from Tickled Pink Stamps called Cupcake Cherrie.  I think she was one of my first ever digis.  I have coloured her in bright funky colours.  I am going to give this to a very wonderful friend of mine for her Birthday.  It is on the 24th December so I wanted something totally different to Christmas colours ..... and it had to be special because this friend is very special to me and has had a horrible horrible year.
 Do you like the 'doily'??  It is another of my new dies from Marianne Designs.  You will be seeing a lot of these in upcoming posts.  I'm very excited about my new things .. and eagerly awaiting more (it's not long until Christmas and I'm pretty sure Santa has some for me) .....

What do you think of my flowers??  My first attempt at making my own.  Used a Marianne Design Die from the Craftables range.  I'm really happy with them!!  I used a piece of ribbon down the side of the card ... it matched perfectly.  Did have a close up photo ... but not patient enough to wait for it to load.

Thankyou so much for stopping by and I hope you have had a wonderful day.
