No Cards - Just Cake!

Good afternoon all.

Just thought that I would share a photo of the cake I made last night:
Parsnip and Maple Syrup Cake

I found the recipe over at Caroline's blog (kiss-keep it sweet simple) a very long time ago.

The cake is scrumptious and it won't last the day!!

Is your mouth watering now?!!

Celebrating Snow

Good morning all.
Blimey its a bit chilly today! The chickens didn't want to come out of the coop this morning!!
Still at least its dry and sunny.

I have a Penny Black card to share with you:

Items used:
Penny Black 'Celebrating Snow' 4095H
Memory Box 'Frostyville Border' die
Stampin Up Blendabilities
LOTV sentiment tag
LOTV Winter Wishes paper

Off now for a major house clean then hopefully will be able to craft later, after all "all work and no play...."
Which brings me onto my new years resolution (something that I don't usually bother with)-
1. When I have finished a card it has to be placed into cellophane with envelope to save time.
2. To blog more often which means to spend more time crafting :)

Number 1 is already a success so I'd better keep up with number 2!

Thank you for visiting me today and I hope that you have a fabulous day.

I have a Penny Black card to share with you today:

Glossy Accents
Glamour Dust
Sentiment from Stampin Up

So that's another Christmas card to add to the pile that I haven't written yet - eek!!

Magic Reindeer Food

Good morning lovely blog people,
I won't go on about my lack of posts recently but will try and make up for it this week with regular visits.

Here is some 'Magic Reindeer Food' to share with you that I made for my craft fares:
 and the poem on the back:
 Also some Doggie Christmas Treats:

They went very well at the fares and I could have sold more!

I will hurry over to Pixie's Snippets Playground before the gates close and share them with the playmates!

The die is from Stampin Up and the images were from a free download.
Hope to see you soon as I'm going to spend the day crafting - bliss!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.

Edited to say:
I have just come back from the playground to find that the gates have already closed.......sob, sob!!
Hopefully Miss Di will let me share them in next weeks challenge instead.

Christmas Candles

Good evening all.
My apologies for my absence but I have been busy making things for a few craft fares.

Here are some candles that I have decorated:

What do you think - nice or naff ?!!

I will take my candles over to Papertake Weekly Challenge where the theme is 'Anything goes' with an optional extra to make a gift or decoration for Christmas (and hope that they don't laugh too much at my creations!!).

Right I'm off to watch 'I'm a Celebrity' - love it!
Hope you have a lovely evening and thanks for stopping by.
Eve x
