Lots of Christmas cards and some exploding cakes!

Morning All,

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend. I'm in a lovely mood this morning...not sure if its the crafting, the baking or the fact that I'm seeing two of my lovely friends in a bit....we're heading off to a local food festival! Yummy! for

I love this time of year...I get to make so many cards! Friends, family and work colleagues all start requesting cards, here are some I've been working on this weekend...

....I've been using my favourite tree stamp, adding red, green and gold glitter to make it festive, I've made lots of cheeky Rudolphs and some festive penguins! I've had to stop because I seem to have run out of black card for my penguins!

One of these cards is perfect for the challenge over at Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge where they have a colour combo theme this week - red and gold. One of my penguin cards is for a girl who loves the colour red....

I've used gold card and red paper for the background of this card. I've made my little penguin from papers in my stash...I accessorised him with a red and gold bow tie! The Christmas message was created on my computer and backed with more gold card. I then added a little bit of holly.

I mentioned baking at the beginning of my post....yesterday I decided to make some marble cakes....not really sure what happened in the oven, but they seemed to explode out of their cases....

....ha, ha...not exactly my usual pretty cupcakes, but they taste wonderful! Perfect on a chilly autumn afternoon with a mug of coffee!

Right, I better get going...I have a food festival to get to!

Thanks for stopping by today,
