Quick Christmas card using chipboard diecuts

Halfway through the weekend already - a busy day today, overslept and the poor dogs were still in their beds in the laundry dying to be let out!!! Our youngest son and fiance caught me still in my pj's and wanted me  to go out with Emma to try a cheescake that they may like at their engagement party. Of course being diabetic I shouldn't be eating it at all, but to please them I had some. It was so sweet, there would be no way I could eat it and I suppose since I've cut down on all that sort of thing, it does seem even more sweet to me. He wanted to know whether I could make it, I think all I would need would be to find a recipe. It was an apricot baked cheescake with an almond topping and maybe icing sugar on top. It looked a bit like crumble on a baked apple pie!!!
The craft group that I usually go to on Saturdays met for the first time since before Christmas as people have just had things on and it hasn't been able to get going until now. I got home to find hubby off to the airport to pick up a couple of our friends who stayed with us just over a week ago and left their car here and a few belongings. They shouted us pizza for tea before they headed off to the mallee region back to their farm. A bit of tv watching and then started thinking about making a card, I've missed a few nights this week due to different things going on so tonight I decided to make a quick Christmas card using a packet of diecuts that I picked up about 5 years ago in one of the discount shops.
Here it is.....
