the smell of Christmas...

Good morning everyone did you all enjoy the blog hop yesterday...if you didn't join in follow the links below you don't want to miss out on the chance of winning a prize now do you...I went out with my lovely Dad yesterday afternoon, we ran a few errands then spent most of the afternoon wishing people Merry Christmas and kissing people, loved it and of course we had to have our usual coffee break, hes off to my Sisters for the holidays on Saturday but I will see him to celebrate a few days after when they all arrive at our house for a that day, everyone laughing and joking, playing games and eating...brilliant...last night my wonderful Phil made some mince pies with his own special orange flavoured pastry and wow they are scrummy, so lush you don't even need cream with them (of course I had to try a few, just for quality control you know lol)...the whole house is filled with the smell of Christmas and I can still smell them this morning, tonight is his cake night when he makes his massive, boozy, magnificent Christmas never last over the holidays though when everyone gets their hands on it lol...right now onto my card for today which is using this stunning Hannah Lynn digi from Crafts and Me called Merry Mindy...isn't she fab those eyes are so beautiful...I coloured her with my usual distress inks and glittered her and the Christmas baubles just for a bit more festivity...the lush papers are from the My Mind's Eye - All is Bright 6x6 Pad which is a massive 25% off at Bunny Zoe's Crafts atm, a real bargain...I finished with a lush green ribbon bow, a holly charm and a sentiment cut from the same pad...the fab sketch is from the Totally Papercrafts challenge and I'm also entering it for the Paper Pretties challenge and the Whimsy Stamps challenge too, Im sure there was a challenge for adding a charm but I cant remember where...I'm off out for some alone shopping (sssssshhhhh don't tell him but its for stocking fillers for Phil) and some lunch with our beautiful Daughter too...whatever your up to today I hope its fun and you have a brilliant time
