All behind!

It's my Blogoversary, thanks to Teena in Toronto for pointing that out. Happy Blogoversary to me :)

So over at Christmas Cards All Year Round you will find the final challenge for this year and my final challenge as part of their DT. Sadly i declined from continuing due to new job obligations of which there are now none as i gave up one job to be more flexible for the other and then lost the other. That's a story for another day...

So the challenge for this month was Anything goes and so i adopted a card technique found in a magazine which i will add when i find it to make funky trees. Here are my three (yes another month where i only manged three, that said i made quite a few others it's just that a friend bought them from me. Anyway here are my three funky trees.

I really like how these turned out and the are pretty simple to do and use up lots of bits of paper so keep them for other trees.

I have been baking as is the norm for me, surprisingly i haven't been put off. Today's baking was some Tangy Lemon Squares. Why is it you never have the right size tin...hey ho improvisation seems to have worked and if there is a next time i will endeavour to try something smaller.

Also this month i have been going gingerbread mad lol

I have made and love gingerbread mince pies, never will i be tempted to just have pastry for my mince pies again lol. Also cheesecake bites borrowed from created by Diane

This is my gingerbread mince pie with crumble topping, i have done bother ordinary tops for them and crumbly ones and the crumbly ones are my favourite :)

These are Diane's cheesecake bites but instead of using a ball of gingerbread i rolled it out again like i did for the mince pie and piped the cream cheese in. The gingerbread rose leaving a bit of a gap from filling but they still got eaten lol

Well that's me for today. Wishing you all seasons greetings :)
