Love Birds and a Yummy Tea Ring!

At the top is the image I chose for inspiration for my card today. It's easier to tell what I used by seeing it with the results of my efforts on the same photo, I think.

Christmas cards are over for sure. Now I'm working on January birthdays and Valentines. I thought these funny love birds were perfect for my little warped sense of humor!

Today is baking day. DS and family are coming around 1 to give me some help. The Swedish bread, filled with almonds and cinnamon sugar, takes hours, and an extra pair of hands is wonderful. Paul is a marvelous cook, and has always liked to do this project with me. Sometimes we even make a double batch (6 rings), and he takes some to the Teacher's Party at school. They will stay for dinner, and cards afterwards, if the snow isn't too bad. Have a wonderful day......if you are getting this big storm, stay home and snug!!

I thought you might like to see the first of three tea just came out of the oven, and it's glazed with conf. sugar, milk, and almond. Boy, does it ever smell good. It's on the foil that will keep it until Christmas morning in the freezer.
