A Quick Christmas Card

Hi and welcome - it's again been a full day. I got sunburnt/windburnt yesterday morning wandering around the auction with friends and then we travelled out into the country for our niece's engagement party. I was pretty tired when we got home about 7 pm and just sat and did nothing for a while. I had to have a cheesecake and a zucchini slice for a choir luncheon today. So... late last night I made a baked pumpkin cheesecake and then early this morning I made the zucchini slice. We went off to church and then rushed back here to pick the food up and then to the venue for the lunch. We got home late afternoon and hubby helped our son go pick up a motorbike to work on and then move the rest of his furniture and gear into the truck and drive to our daughter's where he will be living. It is at least 30 mins drive from here so hopefully he will get himself up early enough in the morning to get to work on time. He always leaves at the last possible minute and his work is about 15 -20 mins south of us. Traffic is always bad too from the area he is in now.
We are having my car, his car and DIL's car serviced here at the house by a friend who runs a mobile mechanic business. It's been forecast for a bit of rain, hopefully it will hold off until he finishes the cars or he is going to get wet!!!
I've been cutting out Christmas trees with the Cuttlebug for church to use next week, they want 160 of them. So far I have done 60 and probably have enough gold card to do another 30. I'll have to go buy more card, I thought 3 large sheets would have been plenty!!!
Anyway, that's another job for tomorrow. I sat down and quickly made this card because I didn't get one done yesterday. Just a quick card relying on a fancy diecut to focus on the sentiment.
Here it is.....
