Panic Mode

I started to make Christmas cards in August this year but I clearly wasn't making them fast enough and now I find myself in a panic not just over the cards I haven't made but over Christmas shopping and wrapping and family coming to stay and not being in the least bit ready.
I have had to apologise to my teamies at Sketch Saturday because I'm just not going to be able to make a card this week for them.  It's a real shame because it's a great sketch so please drop by there on Saturday and play along.
In the meantime, I needed to work on something a little faster and, inspired by the red and green challenge at Simply Less is More, and using my fabulous SU Medallion stamp and a PTI sentiment, I came up with this.
I suspect, owing to my panic mode, I might not be visiting my buddies quite so frequently but PLEASE don't abandon me.   I promise to catch up when I can.
