All Wrapped Up

I have used an image from PC Crafter (no longer open) and made a white card with touches of red and green.

Wrapping the gifts is something I really enjoy, I get an immense feeling of satisfaction seeing my purchases ready for Christmas. 

The weather here is certainly autumnal and the evenings are getting dark, about 7pm, last night when I took the dog for his walk, dusk was falling and for the first time this year the bats were flying among the hedgerow, I never fail to be surprised by how quick they are and how low they fly.

Fabulous Meg! Such a fun image, the red and green look lovely against the embossed white layers, love the little rolls of gift wrap too!
Would you like to pop round and do my Christmas gift wrapping for me? I enjoy it at first but quickly get tired of it!
