Let It Snow - Simon Says Stamp DT Ca

Hello lovely peeps!
Has anyone got any Christmas spirit to spare that they wouldn't mind sending me please? I really can't be bothered with it this year and that is so unlike me!

I'm normally an all out crazy Christmas fan who starts counting down for the next one in January, will happily play Christmas songs anytime of the year & panics if everything isn't wrapped & sitting neatly under the tree by the 1st December lol.

This year I haven't bought any presents, or even made a list of who to buy for and what to buy, I haven't put my decorations up on the 1st December like I normally would & I've made so few Christmas cards that I know I am going to have to commit a card makers sin and buy some lol.

The really bizarre thing is I'm not even panicking about how little time is left before the big day!!!
I NEED to find my Christmas love or I may just actually get a tad stressed on Christmas Eve if this carries on lol.

 It's Wednesday which means ..........
