This is the first time I have covered and decorated a cake and although it isn't perfect I am pleased with how it has come out. I can't actually tell you how it tastes as I hate fruit cake...............lol Mr Wonka assures me it is super tasty though! It will take him a while to get through it all............
I'd better scoot, we have got some good friends coming to stay for the weekend to see the New Year in and I have got 100 things to do before they arrive! I hope that you all have a lovely evening xxx

This is the sketch we were given:
I am really pleased with how well it has come out, I wasn't sure of the Easter Blossoms stamp set but I have now fallen in love with it and expect it will be popping up all over blog land very soon (it is in the new SU mini coming out on the 1st Jan).
Another one of my blog resolutions is to give you a list of "ingredients" for each card I often forget to do this and on the off chance that someone actually reads my waffle I thought I would start doing it.
Here is a list of ingredients that I have used:-
Stamp Sets - Easter Blossoms and Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink - Chocolate Chip and Marina Mist
Paper - Subtles DSP pad
Punches - 1" circle
Embellishments - Adhesive pearls
I have got a quiet day at home today, may even stay in bed all day.....................sometimes a duvet day is in order! x

I have used the Just Believe stamp set teamed with some subtles designer paper and a few adhesive pearls.
Please pop over and check out the other cards, I am going to check them out now!
See you soon...................I hope! x

I have used the new cupcake stamp set and punch that I have fallen in love with! I have a whole host of ideas for this stamp and punch set and can't wait to share them with you in the new year!
I hope that you all have a wonderful day, I'll be back soon for Christmas show and tell!

I had a friend popping round yesterday and put her and her sons gift on the fireplace for them, I think Arthur thought Santa had been and tried to see if he was still up there.............
Actually I have no idea what he was doing.....he is such an odd cat!
For the first time in years I am all ready a day early! So am planning a nice relaxed day today with Mr Wonka although I expect he will be wrapping my presents till midnight! That isn't because there is so many but because he hates doing it and leaves it to the last minute! Last year he even asked me to if I could wrap with my eyes shut so that I could wrap my own without spoiling the surprises! What's he like.............
Before I go I just wanted to thank you for my sprout wreath comments! Someone asked how I made it, well it was just a polystyrene wreath ring and each sprout was lovingly hammered into it using cocktail sticks. Then the bow was added on the bottom using wire. So give it a go, I'd love to see your own sprouty creations! LOL
Right I'm off, Happy Christmas everyone, I hope that you all have a lovely day tomorrow, I'll be back soon. xxx

Yup a sprout wreath! It seemed like a good idea when I started! I soon regretted it, my hands stunk of sprouts for days, I keep finding sprouts in the craft room and car! It is like the little green beasts are haunting me!!!!! I am pleased to say that she loved it, I can also guarantee that it is a limited edition of 1 as I won't be getting that close to sprouts again for a while!
See you soon x

So sorry that I have been missing in action, I have been unwell (ongoing and all a little bit boring!)and every day life has taken priority and blogging and crafting have been put on the back burner!
Here is the final pines and poinsettia card that I made for our craft day, I expect you have forgotten the other two by now!
I have finished all the Christmas preparation apart from the BIG Christmas shop that's Mr Wonkas domain so I can relax a little bit and try and get in the Christmas spirit!
See you soon xxx
