cake anyone?

Hello friends..........shall I save you a piece? It's fruit! and even though it doesn't really show on my terrible photo(sorry) it is very sparkly. It is not the funny shape it looks either...that's down to the camera angle...........and being in a hurry.

So what is your tipple with cake? sherry? oh and cheese?  YES I know... but here in Yorkshire it is quite an old tradition to have cheese with your fruit cake. Not my taste I have to say even though I am quite partial to a bit of cheese.

OK on to the table ..........1/2 crackers.....NO not me........mmm  not everyone might agree on that one. They are crackers from Paula at Whichcraft and I chopped one end off......using them for place names..... here's mine.....

Two sides are covered in the red paper where I picked out part of the design and added Glamour Dust for sparkle,(lousy photo again) and the other two sides are silver..........go on .....guess the colour scheme of the it?
The name tags are a Spellbinder die with added glitter...well it is Christmas..........oh yes... and there is something inside...not telling.....just in case any of the partakers might be sneaking an early peek!

As the sun is shining here today I am popping over to the playground again with this one.....used snippets for the tags and sides.

Thank you for taking time out if your busy schedule to stop by and visit me.Your friendship and the lovely comments you leave me is humbling.

I wish each and every one of my wonderful blogging friends, a very HAPPY CHRISTMAS and WONDERFUL NEW YEAR. Be safe and well, and I hope that you enjoy whatever you are doing over this festive season.

See you later
Big hugs...........and love

  2. Carole...oh my stars! A gorgeous, breath-taken-away cake! The snowflakes are stunning! I'd be having moments of hesitation before cutting into this work of art...but I'd get over it, as I can imagine how delicious it is! My mom used to make fruit cakes - both dark and light (my dad was partial to both) - but I'm not sure if she's made any this year. Guess we'll find out...I like the dark...or maybe the light...or dark...or light *grin* A bit of sherry to pair it with? Don't mind if I do! Your table favours: ingenious and yet another round of beautiful! Red, white, silver, glitter...oh, how lovely your Christmas table will be! Thrilled you shared photos, as they’ve set my festive spirit aglow! Wishing you, dear friend, a most Merry Christmas! Enjoy every. single. moment!!
    Hugs and love~c
