Christmas Present Card

Good morning all.

Had a relaxing morning at the hairdresser's yesterday, although all the girl's were full of cold...hope they haven't passed it on to me! After some lunch and an online shopping trip for groceries I felt really ill and exhausted and ended up in bed for the rest of the afternoon...and I never sleep during the day! Bless eldest when he got home from work and no tea was ready he just got on and made a pan of pasta for himself and the other two.

I was hoping to get some Christmas tags made yesterday but didn't so here's another quick Christmas card to share, you must be getting sick of them by now lol.

Pierced rectangle die from Spellbinders, layered onto gold mirri card. Line stamp is from Clearly Besotted, stamped in versamark and heat embossed with gold detail EP. Sentiment from a Penny Black set which was a magazine freebie. Bow from my stash.

Challenges entered:
Crazy for CAS - presents
Allsorts - no DP's
