I was a busy girl this morning... by 8am I was baking as I wanted to get the last of it done today.  I got the butter tarts made and in the oven and then started on the poppycock (caramel corn).  I got everything ready and was pouring the homemade caramel over the popcorn and started stirring.... and some of the caramel got on my right index finger and stuck.... and I got an instant blister.

It's making typing a little difficult.  I'm trying to avoid using that finger.

I think I will live...


But hey, once that timer goes off, my part of the Christmas baking is done!!  Mom will come next week and she'll help me make poppyseed roll (I've never made it before).  Heather is brining stuff too.

I'm off to the eye doctor in a while to have some sort of dilation test done on my eyes.  I don't even remember why this test was recommended.  All I know is that I was told not to drive so I have no idea what I'll be able to do this afternoon....  computer?  read?  tv?  craft?

I plan on doing a few challenge cards before I head off, just in case I can't craft any more later.  If I can, though, I hope to craft this afternoon.

This card follows the sketch for the Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge from last week.  Once I decided what I wanted to use for paper and images, the card came together rather quickly.
