Christmas fun

It's time for another challenge for the Christmas Card Club and it was Sue's turn to pick the theme and she has asked for humorous Christmas cards. The background paper is from the Cosy Christmas collection that came with Quick Cards a month or two ago. I've used an Anita's stamp coloured simply with a red copic, mounted on to red mirror card. The wording was computer generated and also mounted on to red mirror card. The answer is on a tag tucked into the side of the picture.
