A birthday card for my Guy

It was Guy's birthday earlier this week .. and this was the card I made for him.. I used a stamp from The Greeting Farm and coloured it to look a bit like Guy :)


All the papers are from my stash... slowly getting through these!!

The stamp "You're Simply Amazing" is a Kaisercraft one.. available in a great set HERE

I found an old Creative Memories sticker (the computer) and used it on the card! 
The HAPPY BIRTHDAY I wrote with the chisel tip of my BV18 Copic marker and added a 2nd line with a multiliner! I also outlined the rectangle borders using a 0.3 multiliner - my favourite size!

I made a FAKE Cheesecake.. FAKE because it was dairy free and so absolutely no cheese .. the main ingredient is cashew nuts .. it actually worked well although was a bit of a fail on the night as there was no room in the freezer at my in-laws for it and so it kinda melted into a soggy mess... since it re-froze it actually tastes quite yummy!

Thanks for stopping by!

Gluten and Dairy Free choc chip cookies



Today we had a women's afternoon tea for the women from our 5pm church meeting. It was lovely to hang out and drink tea together :D I experimented with a new recipe .. I found a few online and kinda merged/ experimented with what I had. I think they turned out quite OK :D

INGREDIENTS:
1 cup almond meal
1 cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon g-f baking powder
6 tablespoons of Coconut oil (melted)
4 tablespoons of honey
1 generous squeeze of Vanilla bean paste
2-3 tablespoons of rice milk
1/2 block cooking chocolate roughly chopped (sadly Woolies has no choc chips that are dairy free)

METHOD:
I just threw it all in the bowl and mixed it up .. then scooped out small balls and slightly squashed them.

COOKING TIME:
~10minutes on 180 degrees... our OVEN is really off though..so this could vary!

It's a yummy not tooo unhealthy snack.. which is especially nice with a cuppa tea on these wintery wet days we are having!!

Lots of layers

Good afternoon,

Today I'm sharing a card I made for the 4 Crafty Chicks challenge.. which is "Anything Goes" with a twist of "lots of layers" I had fun layering up LOTS of different bits of paper to create the card layout.. then coloured up this image "Best Friends" from The Greeting Farm.. (YES I STILL LOVE them hehe )who is also "wearing lots of layers" - unlike me in this heat,  tee hee



Hope your Monday/ week has started off well.. not sure where mine went... Well come to think of it I do...  down a rabbit hole of videos and iphones and imovie and youtube. I've started off a new youtube channel for my business Mad for Markers and I coloured this stamp in the first video :D

All you need in life is a Friend who has chocolate

Hello everyone,

I'm back again... three days in a row... we're cooking with gas .. well almost! (Let's see if this can be kept up) .. There's plenty of challenge blogs out there to keep the inspiration coming :D 

Today I'm sharing a card I made for the AUD Sentiments Challenge .. which is to create a card "for a friend" ... I love this sentiment stamp which I've cut up to fit on the card.. and It would make a great card for a friend.. although would probably need to be accompanied by a block or box of choccies :D

Dress: R81, R83
