Festive Gifts


It felt so good to be back in the Craft Cave today after another unplanned break.  Wednesday and Thursday I was in bed with a migraine.  My own fault really as I had recently told someone I hadn't had a bad one in ages.  And this was a bad one.  I haven't had a headache free day since but at least they're minor enough that I can function.  I even managed to spend half the day outside with Luis yesterday clearing more trees.  

Anyway today's card is for two challenges.  I used the sketch from the Fusion challenge and the photo inspiration from Festive Friday.  I was inspired by the gifts and the reds.  I used some Fancy Pants paper to paper piece the Woodware gifts and added a Sweet Stamp Shop sentiment. And that's it for today!  See you tomorrow!
