Thank you!

Hello there!

I've been busy this evening making thank you cards as someone has requested several in anticipation of Father Christmas visiting! It's nice to hear that someone wants to send thank you cards after Christmas. I love sending thank you cards.... call me old fashioned, but I think there is nothing better than getting a lovely card through the post with a nice message...better than all the bills and mailshots I seem to get!

I also made another thank you card for several different challenges.....

This little cutie is one of my favourite digi images...he's so cute with that little smile and rosy cheeks! This card is perfect for the following challenges:

Allsorts Challenge - Free and easy...anything goes

Pop by all the blogs mentioned above to see the gorgeous DT cards and projects.

Anyone who stopped by my blog recently will know it was my mum's 60th Birthday yesterday, I've already showed you her liquorice allsorts inspired Birthday card.....and here are some Birthday cupcakes that I also made for her....

They don't look that fab in this photo, and they are very well travelled cupcakes, but mum really liked them! I've taken basic vanilla and coffee cupcakes and wrapped them in royal icing to make them look like giant liquorice allsorts! Once I was happy with the base layer I stuck the black icing onto the cakes using some sugar syrup.

For mum's Birthday treat we took her up to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park and looked at all the lovely stalls. We then had a fab meal in the Kensignton Hotel, followed by a wonderful carol concert in the Royal Albert Hall.

Right, I can't believe there are only a couple of days until Christmas....I'm still not organised and so better go and do some wrapping!

Thanks for stopping by today,
Wedgie xxx

Hi there

I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response .

I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the Christmas preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and wonderful holiday time
