Coops this is absolutely gorgeous! That border is stunning and I love the embossing panels you've added. Fabulous colouring as usual!

I hope you managed to get your present stuck down! I know exactly what you mean too - so frustrating, if you're still stuck (or 'unstuck'!) try Scotch Tape - that's what I use for stubborn wrapping papers!

Also just want to send you huge bloggy hugs for all the visits you pay me and the wonderfully kind and encouraging comments you leave - you're the best xxx
