Birthday parcels

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world, and if not then here's some hugs {{{{{hugs}}}}}.
I promised I'd tell you about our crafting day on Sunday and WOW what a day it was. There were 7 of us and we started off with bacon and cheese paninis and a cuppa and lots of hugging and chinwagging. Then off we all went to Byrkley Park for some craft retail therapy. Back we all came after spending the obligatory fortune, and had wonderful home made quiche followed by home made scones with strawberries and clotted cream. We thought we'd died and gone to heaven LOL. We spent the afternoon crafting during which I made 8 very simple Christmas cards and then we piled into two cars and off we went into Derby to the new Cosmo's for dinner. OMG what a wonderful place that was, for the second time in one day we had died and gone to heaven. Methinks I put at least half a stone on that day LOL. Anyhow, before you all nod off I will share a card with you :o)

Very simple card. Embossed parcels are chalked then layered onto a scrap piece of mirri card, then layered onto the basecard which is plain what folded and cut to 7x5. Sentiment is SU stamp and the ribbon is from stash. Embossing folder is from Crafts Too :o)
