Cake and Christmas!

Hello friends
I hope you are having a good weekend. 
I chose to do some cooking yesterday, I wanted to make the next 
recipe that will soon be available in the Charity add-on kit to the Recipe Notebook.
It is Canadian Malt Loaf.
It was really easy to do and yummy!  
The beauty of this recipe is not just its simplicity but it can be frozen too,
assuming it lasts long enough to freeze!
It is delicious on its own or spread with butter.
I will be revealing the next mini-kit and exciting giveaway news next week.

How about a little bit more Christmas....
the card featured on Friday with the prancing reindeer, I was asked if the reindeer was a stamp - they were printed tags, part of the paper collection.
Spellbinders have a wonderful die set that features a similar reindeer.

As always, if you are searching for a particular die(s) I am happy to help.
This is another Quick Make from Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine this month.
Adorable mitten paper.  I added a Layered Poinsettia, glitter tag, 
wooden embellishment and ribbon.  It really was quick!
Take care friends and have a lovely Sunday.

Hi Christine

Love the cake, just a shame I couldn't get the kit that you were selling. Didn't realise you would keep it back until we were back off holiday. Love today's card.

Morning Christine, the card is lovely - where was the mitten paper from, may I ask? Love the look of your scrummy cake. You are a clever girl. When do you do any housework??? Don't know how you fit it all in but would like to know!!!

Good morning Christine a lovely card and that cake looks fantastic.

Hello Christine
The cake looks delicious I can't wait to get the recipe and have a go. I am enjoying making the book for the recipes, I haven't done anything like it before and I love your choice of papers and embellishments. I'm going to Turkey to visit my daughter and her family but I will be itching to get going on the cake and the next project when I get back. Take care

Afternoon Christine, Yummy, yummy-looking cake, I love malt loaf and this one looks fabulous, looking forward to baking this one when the charity kit add-on is available. I baked a Stem Ginger and Lemon cake yesterday, one of my all-time favourites from Tamasin Day-Lewis, if you ever get the chance, do try it !!
Fabulous card, loving the papers and the gorgeous poinsettia die, gorgeous.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
