Dottie's World Challenge-It's A Girl Thing!

Well, I'm a tad bit late getting my DW card posted.....geesh Christmas prep. is like a mini wedding! I've been struggling all month long trying to keep up...and failing miserably! :o)
Hopefully now I can get caught up and stay that way.
This week Lou is hosting the DW challenge.
She wants us to make a girl card.
So of course I used one of the brand new Charmed Images from the Sugar and Spice collection-you can get it HERE
The paper I used is Imaginisce Twitter Patter
The buttons are Basic Grey-Nook & Pantry
The wide white gross grain ribbon is CTMH
I think that's about it for the card

I also wanted to show you the fabby cake I made for my Christmas dinner-I host Christmas dinner every year. :o)
The cake I made was a coconut cake and let me tell you, it was ridiculous!!
I used two cake mixes-yes it really was as huge as it looks in the picture.
For each cake mix I added 4 eggs, 1 cup oil, 1 cup sour cream, 4 ounces sweetened coconut, 1 teaspoon vanilla and one box of vanilla flavored jello....yup each sliver of a piece was about 5000 calories!
I made two batches of butter icing, and then used my BIG pastry tip to decorate the sides. I also sprinkled tons of coconut on top.
In between the layers I added Raspberry Spread-my favorite. :o}
The little hollies and poinsettias were premade-Martha Stewart

I trust you had a brilliant Christmas, thanks for stopping by today.
Cheers, Peace and Goodwill to all!
