Let it Snow

Good morning all.

Managed to make a Christmas cake yesterday, my first for many a year and first gluten free one. The proof as they say will be in the eating...is it Christmas yet?

Christmas card again today :)

Stamp was a magazine freebie, stamped and heat embossed. Background is stamped with a EF from Cuttlebug and heat embossed. Dies from Spellbinders. A great one for the guys methinks!
