Delightful Thursday

Good morning to you, hope you are all well and if not I wish you a very speedy recovery!  Today is the last Delightful Thursday of the year over at Digital Delights Blog and the DT have some fabulous cards for you to see.  Here is mine:

I have used Pickles the Penguin which is available to purchase here.  I coloured Pickles with my Copics and Stickles.  The background paper is Nitwits and I free cut some snowy mounds with Centura Pearl and Glitter card.  The Santa and sleigh are a Cheery Lynn die. Quite a simple card but it looks real cute in real life.

Please pop over to Digital Delights Blog to see the rest of the DT work there are some fabulous cards on show. And don't forget the challenge over at Delightful Challenges where the theme this week is Celebrations you would be in with the chance to win a $15 gift voucher for Scrapyland!

Well I got my cake marzipaned yesterday:

And I also made Mary Berry's Mincemeat Tray Bake which has homemade mincemeat and a struesal topping, it was on The British Bake Off Christmas Special Tuesday night:

For some reason it has come out yellow on the picture but its a lovely golden brown IRL, I can thoroughly recommend it, it tastes delicious and I have frozen it for over Christmas. The recipe is here.

Well I have to do my menus today because I am starting my food shopping tomorrow so I will have to know what to get lol!  Need to do that this morning because I am out for lunch with my Aunt and my Cousin who has come over from Yorkshire.  Have a wonderful day and thank you so much for calling! Take care xx
