Stripes for MM&M and some baubles for my Steampunk tree

Nearly didn't make it in time for MM&M Stripes challenge as had a bit of a hectic month.
So I've created an all digital piece using a kit called 'Words to live by' by Kimeric Kreations.
One of the cool tools in the software I use are 'digital scissors' -I used this to cut up the blue digital paper into stripes. 

At long last Dave made some of Valeries super spice bars after she so kindly shared the recipe with us back in august - and if you haven't already tried these, I can thoroughly recommend them as they are really yummy!

The first attempt, Dave made an error and somehow left the sugar out so that wasted a batch and then he had no chocolate left to drizzle on top for the second batch. Not sure how we ran out of chocolate, that was bad planning! ha ha,  but even so, they were really lovely and also very nice with custard. 
 Great recipe - thanks Valerie x

October was spent finishing all the Christmas cards and November spent making more ornaments for our Steampunk themed Christmas tree. I'm done making them for this year now so now I need to clear up all the mess that is all over my 3 tables and a lot of the floor too.
The hooks on the front of my shelves were great
for dangling things that needed to dry.
I had great fun making 5 of these using silver baubles, metallic paints, green eco paint and fun foam.

 I will show some other things I made for the tree another time.
thanks for stopping by
hope your day is a good one

  1. Love the colours on the stripey card! The Christmas baubles look great in the metallic bronze colour. Cake slices look yummy. Making me long for a cake.

  2. Your quote on the nice stripey digital page is wonderful! I would like to eat one piece of the cake, please! Your steampunk things look stunning! Great that you use fun foam and metallic colors, and they look even like metal! Other pieces are really metallic? The tree must be strong to hold them all at last?!
    Schöne Woche, Rike :)

  6. I love the striped card, but my eyes are drawn to those fabulous steampunk baubles, they will for sure catch the lights on your tree.
