Joy at Christmas

Hello everyone, I decided to have a quiet morning at home and do some washing but the heavens burst open and it bucketed down - I went outside to watch the water pour down our street as we live on an incline. Glad I hadn't put the clothes in the machine before it started or I would have had to have put them over a rack. I had to go to the doctors this arvo to have him check up on whether I was doing the right thing with my sugar levels. I don't have to go until the New Year now, LOL, I told him I would be eating Christmas pudding which will be full of sugar! He said nobody expects me to be a saint, LOL. He has diabetes also and it's been out of control and he tells me he has to eat salads etc and it is slowly coming down. At least he can share his experience and knows how hard it can be sometimes. I don't mean really hard but it's a bit sad watching someone eating something that you enjoy and can no longer have!
Well, I was going to have an early night but time has gotten away from me because I was watching you-tube tutorials, looking for inspiration for something different to teach.
This is one of the cards I made a couple of days ago for next Wednesday's class.
The basecard is Real Red, I cut a piece off the front and then used a border punch along the edge, the DP is from stash. The panel with the bird on is scored on the right hand side and folded under the insert so it flaps over the front of the card.
Both the image and sentiment are from SU sets and I used Copics to colour the bird image,
I would like to enter this in the challenge at Little Claire's - theme is Christmas.
