Good luck it's Christmas

 (I apologise for the quality of photos as they were taken late evening)

The title of this post is from this gorgeous song by Tellison, go give it a listen!
My christmas spirit is starting to come back after losing it last week. I think this is because I am working tomorrow and Christmas Eve which is a bit rubbish. I absolutely cannot wait until my shift is over on Saturday so I can get in to the festive spirit and look forward to my week off!
Wednesday I was baking up a storm for a couple of gifts. I didn't actually get all the things I wanted to bake done but I make some really delicious chocolate fudge, christmas biscuits and mince pies. I packaged them up in cellophane with a doily in the bottom, wrapped them in twine and attached a little gift tag, which you can see in the photos. I've also received some christmas cards from lovely bloggers which make me happy because getting mail is one of my favourite things in the world! I promised last week to show you my handmade cards so you can see the design in the third photo down. I drew the elements and ended up piecing it all together in Photoshop, printing them out and adding glitter! The card in the photo is glitter-less though, but I added little circles of glitter in the branches.

I won't be blogging again before Sunday so I wish you all a very merry christmas! Have fun with all your family and I for one will use it as an excuse to eat way too much. Have a good one! xo
