I decided the doiley didn't really go so I took it out, finished the 3rd layer, now just need to finish decorating it !
I guess more flowers on the 3rd level like the 1st level, I'm not quite sure what to do with the top...any ideas?




I should be making Christmas cards but I got in the mood to start this cake.
Here's what I have so far....  I think I need to cut down the doiley on the top of the red, I'm thinking its sticking out to far, what do you think?

I started wrapping Christmas gifts today and discovered I didn't have any tags....so here's what I came up with using the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More and Doodlecharms cricut cartridges and a little green bling for the eyes and red bling for the buttons.  I also had 4 of the glitter ornaments punched so I used them too !

Here's what I made for Christmas presents this year.  I got a 2012 calendar made with all our birthdays and anniversaries on it along with a cork trivet I made using wine corks !  I had made some of the square ones one year; and now I'm getting requests for a larger one that would fit a 9x13 so...I made some!  The 9x13 does take alot more corks !
