Festive Friday and Allsorts

I am shocked to discover that it is nearly a month since I last posted!! My fibromyalgia has been playing up and at one point I found it difficult to grasp and hold a stamping block or even use the computer .But the most frustrating thing about it is when your head is so buzzing with ideas and you can't use them....then by the time you can you've forgotten them again!! hee he
But thankfully my meds have finally taken affect and as you can see have made a simple double length Christmas card to fit in with the challenges over at Festive Friday with this beautiful inspirational photo 
I saw the parcels and especially the white one with the red ribbon beside the fireplace and this idea popped into my head.(First tried it in pink,but looks more like a birthday present so will keep that idea for another day ...if i can reemember!)
No Designer Paper
 and my card doesnt have that, in fact it has very little on it except that great Christmas sentiment from FLonzcraft that I won the in one of the previous Allsorts challenges... I chose a few prizes and one of them was a sheet of different Christmas sentiments and they are brilliant!,and used an old holly stamp and some cherry cobbler twine from Su to finish it off .
Off to have a look at your takes on this weeks challenges,and thanks for taking the time to look
