Yesterday we had our monthly crop at Jills ( Cardinal Colours) and as always it was a fabulous day out with some very lovely company. Most of us were cardmaking yesterday and I was lucky enough to have a chance to try out some Promarkers and some Copics ( thank you so much Lynn and Linda, you are gems.) I have to say I got on better with the Promarkers, although the stunning array of colours that Linda had in her huuuuuge set of Copics had me feeling like a kid in a candy shop!
Here is a card I made yesterday using Lynn's Promarkers and a lovely Tilda image that Karen very kindly gave me in a huge envelope filled with stamped images ( thank you so much Karen, you are so kind).
I thoroughly enjoyed making this card and am looking forwards to finding some time this week to make some more.
We were celebrating Linda's birthday this month and Lynn bought along a beautiful display of yummy cupcakes that she had made and put on display in a gorgeous cake stand.
I made a Raspberryoffee Pie, its the exact same recipe as a Bannoffee but you substitute with Raspberries instead.
One tip I would give, if you decide to try it yourself, is to use frozen rasps, its so much harder trying to spread caramel and then the cream over them if they are fresh and soggy, the frozen ones are still full of flavour and sit nicely behaving themselves whilst you do the rest of the pie. I also use the Nestle ready to pour Caramel, its soooo much easier than faffing about boiling a tin of condensed milk for goodness knows how long. T o finish the pie off after topping it with whipped up double cream, I crumble up a Cadburys Flake and crumble across the top. Yummy!
