Have a look at my card and guess what I got for Christmas!!! Yes! you guessed it - I got a sandwich maker. A fabulous sandwich maker. Not just any sandwich maker but a red metallic sandwich maker. A sandwich maker which matches my red metallic toaster and my red metallic kettle.
Oh hang on .... you were thinking that I got this Poppy Stamps Small Madison Window
and Small Flower Box.
Silly silly you!
The sandwich maker was in a pre-Christmas catalogue that was delivered to my letterbox. It was right on the front page and easy to circle with pen and place subtly on the breakfast table.
Imagine for a moment trying to explain the above item. "Honey, I would really like this die thingy - it cuts out a window - and there is a box that goes with it - no not in a box - a window box - that is a die thingy too - and you put flowers in it - and it goes on a card - and you have to go into the craft shop."
Really ... that would have been mean to expect anyone to understand that.
It was just better to go off and buy my little craft items and simply add them to my stash as if they have been there for ages.
Now that I have finished this card, I am off to make myself a cup of tea and a toasted sandwich.
