Hello, Tomorrow is Christmas Eve. Will be getting a few more things wrapped today.
Still waiting on a a couple of gifts to be delivered. Getting worried that they won't get here on time.
I wanted to share with you all the Christmas card that I made for my Mom.
She loves Santa things, so I thought she would like this cute image of a little girl sending her letter off to Santa.
I remember writing my letter to Santa with all the things I wanted for Christmas and then sending it off. It was so fun.
Do you remember sending off your Christmas wish list to Santa?
I found that cute Image on Pinterest under Free Christmas coloring Images. Colored it with my Spectrum Noir & Master's Touch Alcohol Marker's.
I wasn't for sure what color to make her dress and coat. My grand daughter suggested her coat be a dark blue and her dress red. So I went with her suggestion.
My Mom loves sparkly things so I knew I had to add a little. So I punched the snowflake out In white glitter cardstock from Stampin Up. Added a little red sparkly ribbon behind the black and white paper and also added some silver tinsel.
I thought the stitched red frame worked perfect around the Image. I also used the softly falling embossing folder from Stampin Up. The Santa stamp image is also from S.U.
I think it turned out cute and I like the vintage look of it.
For Christmas I wanted to share a recipe with you all, I thought you all might like a recipe for Apple Pie Bombs. Easy to make and really good.
Apple Pie Bombs
Preheat oven to 375
You will need-
One can apple pie filling
One large grands biscuits
brown sugar - 1/4th cup
cinnamon - 1/4th tsp
butter - 3 tbs.
vanilla - 1/4th tsp
cornstarch - 1/8th tsp
In medium sauce pan melt 3 Tbs. butter. Add brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and cornstarch. Mix well, add pie filling. Mix and heat up. Let cool
Roll out biscuits to a 4 inch circle. Use a little flour to keep it from sticking. Spoon some apple mixture on biscuit.
Brings sides up and pinch together. Try not to get and filling on the edges. It won't want to stick together.
Will now look like a ball. Place pinched side down in a buttered 9x13 pan. Add a little melted butter to the tops then sprinkle a little sugar and cinnamon mixture on top.
Bake in pre-heated oven for around 18 minutes. Be careful ,ovens vary.
These are also good with other pie fillings like cherry, peach and blueberry. My family really likes these.
I'm sure your family would as well. Let me know if you give them a try.
Also Ernie the Elf will be going back to the North Pole with Santa on Christmas Eve. He has been a good elf this year. Didn't get into any mischief. He even wore a mask. Ernie is a special part of our Christmas. He has been coming since 2013.
That's it for me. Thanks for stopping by. I want to wish each and everyone of you a very Merry Christmas and remember that Jesus is the reason for the season. 💓
