Happy Saturday to all...
I am so sorry for the lack of posts this week. I have been making a quilt for my daughters 16th
birthday which is Tuesday, and it is taking up so much of my card making time! Why I always seem to leave things until the last minute I am not to sure. I think I work better with a deadline!
For my card today I pulled out some of my favourite Elzybells stamps. I love to bake and this just reminds me of the goodies that you can make! Does anyone have a favourite recipe? Please share!!!! I love a good ol family recipe!

Here is one of my favourite recipes for Chocolate Chip Cookies!
2 1/4 cups flour 1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt 1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract 2 large eggs
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375
COMBINE flour, baking soda, salt in a small bowl. Beat butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla
in large bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time. Gradually add flour mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips. Drop onto baking sheet.

BAKE for 9-11 minutes!!!!

Well I am off for an all day hockey tournament for my son! Have a fantastic Saturday!

No time for baking I'm afraid, that's what shops are for, lol! It would take up to much of my limited cardmaking time. I just love this cute card Christine. Super sweet image. Marianne x

This is a lovely card Christine. I hope you're going to show us the finished quilt. I'm sure it will be lovely. I must write down that recipe. I love to bake and don't do it very often now that my family are grown up.
