Busy, Busy, Busy.

Well I love Christmas, when it finally arrives, but hate all the hastle of shopping for presents, so this year I decided that I would give christmas cakes as presents, so have been busy this week, weighing out ingredients, soaking fruit in brandy, and baking cakes, 6 down and 3 still to make, and will start decorating them tomorrow, as 4 have to be ready for a trip down to Birmingham  at the end of Nov. Anyway in between cakes I have managed to make a few cards and here is one of them, it's for our grandson's first christmas.

and here's the inside

It's an 8 x 8 card, and the image, backing paper and inserts are all from a   crafters companion ,popcorn  bear CD, sentiment was done on the computer, and i've added ribbon and a couple of gems
I am entering it in the following challenges

Hi Irene: Ok, where do I start...with the brilliance of giving the Christmas cakes, with the curiousity of the 1,000 pds for cancer of this amazing card and an amazing grandmother to do this! ANYONE would love this teddy (hint hint!) haha. You have done one heck of a job with your coloring. And I love that you have made teddy small AND large. THAT IS SO effective!!!! The message is SO sweet...omg I bet his parents will keep this for when he gets older to see! Your colors and precision is STELLAR! I love everybit of it (and the cakes!) haha Irene, great luck with your challenges, and of course ours, at Forever Friends. Divine Love, Samara
