Christmas Blessings

The weather was still cold today, I spent the morning at the doctor's to have my blood sugar level 3 month blood test done, some shopping on the way home and then did the dishes. Grabbed some lunch for myself and our youngest son who has been off work with a very bad bruised and swollen leg from kickback when working on a motorcycle. Then I packed my craft gear and tried to dodge the rain to get it into the car without getting it soaking wet and headed off to my friend Jane's house for craft. Only three of us today and Jane had a cold - I didn't get a lot done as we chatted a bit because we've not seen each other for a couple of weeks due to holidays.
We went out to tea at a different venue from normal and asked friends to join us. We finished our meal and they got a call from their youngest son asking where they were as he and his fiancee were taking them out for Kim's 60th birthday (party on the weekend) and Fran had forgotten and not told Kim either. So we all left and they went out for another meal, not sure what they were going to eat, LOL, maybe just dessert!!!
We were already pretty full from our meal and I know I couldn't have eaten another thing.
I've made a CAS card tonight so here it is:

Black cardstock for the basecard
Grey cardstock for the matte behind the image
Silver metallic thread for the border
Corner punch
Image and sentiment are from SU  ~ Christmas Blessings set
Silver inkpad

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Less is More - Week 88 ~ Colour - SILVER
Just Keep on Creating - Christmas is around the corner, Ho, Ho, Ho
