I 'need' to make Spring cards (and candy winners)

Good Morning everyone.

Only three days to go until 'the' day and today's "Turkey" day................and gammon and several other things. My daughter and I will be popping off to collect it this morning, seemed a bit early to me but today is the day the farm shop allocated for collections, so I figure it might be heaving there.

My share above is just a little bit of inking and brayering using Stampscapes stamps inking and Adirondack inks and a Summer scene to help ward off these bleak winter days. Funny how all I have wanted to do craft wise this last week or two is make bright Spring and Summer cards, did I say how much I dislike Winter ?

And of course I need to tell you the names of my candy winners, so here they are.

Winner of my December Walnut Hollow goodies is...................

And winner of the mini  DP candy from Tuesday is.....................

Congratulations to you both, please mail me with your full postal addys by 27th Decmeber (will re-draw any not claimed by that date).

    Really feels like Christmas now. I iced my cake today and made meringues and meringue nests. Lucky I made a lot of mince pies the other day as we keep eating them. I'm trying not to eat the shortbread too but I'm not succeeding in leaving the tablet alone!
