But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be
On your own front door.
I don't want to frighten you all, but it IS only 72 days to Christmas...and yes, there are toys in every store!
Does Christmas arrive earlier with every passing year or am I getting old? No need for anyone to answer that!
When do you start to make your festive cards? Are you organised and efficient, making a few cards each month to have a nice supply ready to post come the first week of December? Or are you last minute Annie...still trying to make 'just one more' on Christmas Eve?
Whilst wandering around the Sugar Bowl I found these gorgeous festive cards...
This card from Dawn really caught me eye. The colours are so pretty and ideal for the theme and her colouring of the stamp Warm Winter Wishes is perfect.
Andie has used the image Crystal Flakes for her fabulous Christmas card. Andie's colouring is awesome! I love the shading and the depth she achieves. Very sweet 'n' pretty.
This sparkly delight made by Nessy uses the stamp Wish Upon A Star. I love all the glitter and the added stars.
These stamps all come from the Jingle Bells and Tinkle Bells range and are most definitely my favourite Christmas stamps ever!
The final card today I am showing today...
OK, this one isn't a Christmas card but it is divine so I had to sneak it on here too. A really striking card from Lis made with Hello Little Friend.
There's almost a week left to get a card made and entered into the Sugar Bowl challenge. It's easy peasy to enter and you could be picked at random to win some sweet rubbery loveliness :)
Thanks for looking.
Love Elaine xx
WOW fantastic cards Elaine, you have a eye for picking out great creations.
Yesterday was Let them eat cake and I wanted to show you some new cakes that you might not want to eat but just admire because they are so beautiful.
The girls over at the CREATIVE CUPCAKE ACADEMY run classes
at Farncombe Estate venue in Broadway, Worcestershire.
There is not a class I would not take, it would be a total treat for me and I am sure that one day I will get down there and do this class because I love everything these girls do.
BUT and here's the thing, I would have to fly to Birmingham or Luton and I doubt I could do it in one day, down and back.
IF you are lucky to live near by, go treat yourself, I am sure that if you made these cakes for Christmas gifts you would be a friend for life.
off to put the kettle on anyone want to join me, I buggsy the cake with the snowflake on top!
