I've gone a little bit WI!!

Evening All!!

What on earth has happened to December?? How is it Christmas Eve Eve already?? I think I'm ready now....pressies are made and wrapped, crackers are made, cake is ready and looking cute (even if I do say so myself!!), I've done the food shopping....just got some baking to do tomorrow! One thing I've learnt this month is that I put too much pressure on myself sometimes.....I wanted to make everyone amazing homemade presents this year, but time got away from me and I got really stressed. After talking to Joe and Becca I realised that everyone is going to love what I've made and so what if there are a couple of shop bought pressies too!! I also learnt not to make vinegar based chutneys in a poorly ventilated flat still stinks!!!

I really haven't popped by all my favourite blogs this week...poor show I know!! But when I finally popped by Cupcake Craft Challenge this evening I realised that I'd been awared their Cupcake Cutie badge for my sparkly shoe card last week! I'm soooo proud, thank you lovely Cupcake ladies!!

I've also had some time this evening to make a card and Cupcake Craft Challenge has a fab sketch this week that I wanted to try out. This is a card for Joe's mum....she's getting a jar of my homemade tomato chutney among other homemade goodies, so I thought I'd make her a funny (not so tradtional Christmas card) to go with it!

I'm going to write in the card that if she doesn't like the chutney she can't blame was probably the wine I was drinking at the time! Hee, hee!! I wish I'd looked that calm and serene when I was making the chutney!!

Anyway, don't forget to pop by the Cupcake blog to see all the gorgeous DT cards that have been created. If you fancy a bit of a sparkly challenge you should pop over to Sweet Stampin where we have a "sparkle and bling" challenge!

If I don't see you again before I'd like to wish you a very Merry Christmas....whatever you're up to this year I hope you have a wonderful time!

Thanks for popping by,

Love the penguin cake and Joe's Mum's card is fabulous! You're very good to give homemade pressies this Christmas - judging by the photos of what you make, you're going to be very popular!! Have a wonderful Christmas, sweetheart. Tracey x
