Thank you for visiting my blog. I make Handcrafted cards to order, adding that personal touch in an otherwise impersonal world.

To all - hope you're having wonderful days - we've had lots of pressie opening and now off to my mum's for lunch.

Catch up later.

At last, the Christmas cards are finished!  Last job coming up - pressies out of the garage and into sacks, stockings and under the tree - hope there's enough room!

Here are the final cards!

Delish fridge cake!


230g Dairy Milk
4 tbsp Golden Syrup
125g butter

In a glass bowl, melt over a pan of boiling water.

In another bowl put whatever you fancy!  We added Marshmallows/ Broken Digestive biscuits/ Raisins/ Dark Choc drops/ Maltesers & White Choc Buttons. 

Of course, you could make it much healthier by adding fruit (ahem...!) like chopped apricots etc.  but it is Christmas!

When mixture has melted, let it cool for a little while so it doesn't melt everything else - then stir in.  Put the lot in a shallow tin and press down with a masher to compact it.  Refrigerate for an hour then take out to cut into squares.  Replace in fridge to completely harden (had to test a piece before it went back in!)

Here are a selection of my latest cards - enjoy!

What a faff!

Well, after a lot of faffing about, I think I might like this design!  Thank you to dc'ers who have helped a blogger who has completely forgotten what to do!

I can't believe it's Christmas Eve!  All the pressies are wrapped, bar the chocolate fridge cake which we have just made, just needs to be cooled, chopped and boxed up...... the bad news is, I still have three cards to make - eeekk!  I have the images, just not in the mood!  Best get revved up.......catch up later.
