Christmas is coming...getting ready, are you?

Good afternoon all, where has this morning gone?
No post from me again yesterday, another busy day with time just disappearing.
I am off work today and tomorrow and plan on doing a little card making, cake decorating and wrapping.  Whether that all happens only time will tell.
I don't think I shall get through everything but will be jolly chuffed if I do.  1 step nearer to Christmas, ho, ho, ho.
How much do I now wish that I had been making Christmas cards all year?  Lol.
Mind you I think a lot of folk are cutting down on card sending this year preferring to give money to charity instead.  I do think this is a super idea, heaven knows most charities need all the help they can get.
I am alone in actually enjoying getting Christmas cards especially from friends I only hear from at this time of year, with news from the past 12 months?
I am just not keen on the whole making the card on mass, writing them all, addressing and the news letter too, LOL.  I think it's the writing I don't like and the posting.  How naughty of me especially when I make cards?!
Anyway they won't get made chatting on here so I better make a move.
This is what I was up to this morning....

The next layer to my Christmas cake, mmmmm, marzipan!

Now I am no cake decorator, but I give it a go, all ready now for my icing decorating, I just need to leave it a couple of days and think about a theme.  I do have an idea.....can you guess what it is?
It won't be holly as that is what I decorated my cake with last year.
Watch this space and I shall share with you soon.

It only remains for me to wish you all the very best this Wednesday before getting out my card stock.
I hope you are all staying safe and thinking of those of you on the west coast of Scotland as the weather bomb continues to cause problems.
All fine here at the moment, just wet and cold, a perfect day to stay in the warm and craft!

Hi Erika, very busy as usual I can see. That is my most favorite part of the cake, love marzipan.
We have had a crap day here with the weather, so dark and wet. Poor folk on the west coast though, they're getting hammered once agine.
Keep warm and safe, hugs Kate x
