good afternoon!
i really was teasing you yesterday,
wasn't i?
christina's gorgeous parcel
was worth waiting for though.
wasn't that a clever idea to make those little cuts
in the card to hold them on
keep them safe while in the mail.
if you can't quite read christina's details
want to visit her lovely blog...
here is a link to 'christina's blog'.
how did christina know
that i am very keen on a red/white combination
of colours this year?
i wrote that i didn't have a colour preference
to make it easier for someone to create something for me...
now i'm over the moon!
thank you christina!
today i've been making meringues
for the mainly music christmas party tomorrow.
i've sprinkled them with homemade coloured sugar
and put them in christmassy paper cases...
i'll show you tomorrow.
'til then
naturally Carol xox
