PTI December Blog Hop


Holiday Leftovers Challenge

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas, ours was pretty quiet, which is a complete change from the norm.  I tried a few new recipes, including a Yule Log as my daughter isn't that keen on plum pudding.  In the process learnt how to make swiss meringue buttercream, not that I knew that at the time, so the potential to muck it up was high.  Tastes wonderful though.  

I thought I would get this quick card in before we head up the coast for a few days.  Beach conditions should be better now that the cyclone has moved away from the coast.


The recycled part of my card is the bow, which came from our bonbons.  Unfortunately I wasn't thinking ahead and have no photos of them, but they are always on our Christmas table.

  2. Love this. The bell in the center of the bow is just perfect. I think I'm going to have to order the Quatrefoil die. I resisted, but the white on white is so elegant. Have fun at the beach!

  12. Nothing more elegant and striking than a shot of red against white. The cover plate and the sentiment fit perfectly with the gorgeous bow. Beautifully done.
