Another Christmas card

Hubby and I were sat indoors on christmas eve when there was a knock on the door, It was the kids from next door who had come round with a huge box of choccies(so sweet), the kids not the chocolates lol. Anyhow I thought we should at least give them a card and fortunately for me i was in the middle of making one(purely because I had a new stamp to try out) so after finishing it off, i dropped it off.......phew!
Stamp is from Lili of the valley and also sentiment stamp is from unity

Paper is from my minds eye and die is mft

Get well soon

Hi there all,
What a glorious day its been here today, so sunny and hot. Yet again I got sunburnt(will I ever learn)???. But in my defence I was only outside for less than an hour. Hubby thinks its funny....could it be cos it looks like I have a white vest on or because I'm always telling him to put  sunscreen on and I'm not following my own advice.
Any how on to my card.
The sketch is from sunday sketch and stamp

Here is my take on the sketch
stamp is magnolia nurse tilda, papers are cristina re

punches used are martha stewart and fiskars
I'am also entering this into
penny's paper crafty-something new(my fiskars border punches i bought last week)
