Is it too soon for a yummy Christmas cake?

Not sure whether this is a mince pie or a cupcake - but it's surely a sweet Christmas cake to eat - and that means it's fine for Craftyhazelnuts Christmas Challenge which is festive food or drink:
I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card stock

- image cut from a Christmas card kept from 2011, love the sparkly berries :)

- SU backing card from the snippets folder behind the image and across the back of the sentiment

- backing paper from Echo Park's 'Season's Greetings' paper pack

- sentiment strip from my goodies store

All I did was cut and stick - simples! It's been a pretty up and down few days, life in general throwing a few curve balls has got in the way of crafting and I also need to catch up on commenting so that's my first job of the day, I'll be there ASAP I promise.

But, tomorrow's recipe for Friday Feast is the very best lasagne I have ever tasted of all the different ones I've cooked over the years :) I think you'll love it!



  1. Yummy card Di :)

    Brilliant use of old cards which l am fast learning is a thing us crafters do a lot of.

    Hope your week settles down in time for the weekend.

    Take care xx

  2. Oh, meant to say - cant wait for tomorrows recipe. I LOVE Lasagna, it's one of my top fav's :)

  9. Thanks for joining in my CHNC challenge 85 with such a yummy card - hope to see you again soon. x

  10. No Di its not too early for Christmas cake and yours is so yummy looking l could eat it myself and l don't do Christmas cake, lovely layout and backing papers totally stunning as always xx

  11. That's not what I should be looking at at 7:25 in the morning Miss Di!! My breakfast has just paled by the way side now! You know what they say, when life throws you curves just late brake and aim for the apex! A racing analogy obviously, but I hope you get life's curves straightened out.


  12. Brilliant use of old Christmas cards Di. I love the background papers and what about that delicious cake - yummy.

    Yes, my scones are cheese - Red Leicster.

  13. Lasagna now your talking my kinda language! Course you can have some sea glass. Will pop some in the post shortly. Did you get the fish and chip info I sent you? Hugs mrs a.

  14. Fun card..but I'm looking forward to the Lasagne!!! Yum :P

  15. That cake does look yummy and the papers go well with the image. Hope life settles down and improves for you after those curved balls. Hugs, Elizabeth xx

  16. Guess what, I don't like Lasagna. but if it is that good I may make it for my Daughter who loves it.
    Great card, love the image and hope it is a cupcake, as guess what, I don't like mince pies. Great backing papers and oh such a great feeling to make a quick and easy card.
    As you may guess I am back, been back a couple of days actually but lost the will to make cards and for some unknown reason to leave comments, could not get back into the swing of thing, this is the only comment I have made tonight. Like you I seem to have loads on at the moment and can not get a grip. I have even been and bought my eldest Daughter's 40th Birthday card, how sad is that, but I did decorate the inside. This weekend I have a couple of cards to make and to be quite honest I don't know where to start.
    I will be off again, probably next Thursday but not too sure for how long. Just to let you know that I am still alive and very brown.
