Boxes, boxes and ....... more boxes!!!!

Happy Thursday!

Well .... this week just keeps getting better and better!!
First off the little man woke up with a face covered in spots!  The doctor thinks it might be chickenpox ..... the next 24 hours will tell!  We've all had them before, apart from hubby that is .... so fingers crossed he doesn't go down with it!
To be on the safe side he's decided to work from home today, until we know for sure ..... no point spreading it around the office.  He went to pick his laptop up from work and found that the car wouldn't start .... again!!!!  This happened on Monday morning ..... not the best start to the week.  We thought we'd got it sorted ..... obviously not! Now he's waiting for someone to bring his laptop over ..... wonder who'll draw the short straw!

Anyway .... before I get on with today's jobs on the 'To Do' list, it's time to share this week's festive make for the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge.

This week it's all about GIFTS! .......

This is what I came up with ..... a nice CAS design, very quick and easy (time is something I don't have a lot of at the moment ...... or available craft stash come to think of it! Everything is disappearing into boxes as we speak)

This is so simple to do .... easy to adapt for any size of card (finished size of mine is 6x6) and you can make use of all those pieces of scrapbooking paper or card that you just can't bring yourself to throw away ..... you know the ones I'm talking about!

I went with a sparkly piece of glitter card for my gift, wrapped around some festive red satin ribbon and attached a matching, cute little bow ......

I added the tag ..... (stamped and embossed onto a piece of card and added a little colour with Distress inks) and of course finished off with a Christmas sentiment ....... job done!

Oh well ..... I wish I could stay and chat but it's already lunchtime and I've done nothing!!

Thanks for popping by ...... ooops!  I nearly forgot!  Hello and welcome to my latest follower ..... thank you so much Shawna for taking the time to visit .... it's nice to have you along.

Cheerio until next time
