I haven't made a card for absolutely ages. Our PTA needed one as the head is leaving, so I came up with this. She loved the Barn Dance we put on, hence the photo. I used sackcloth for the backing and used my sizzix for the shapes. I did add a few more little flowers in the white blank bits. It's an A4 card, so I also added a piece of card inside to weight it properly.

I have been meaning to blog about home made pizzas for a while. Because they are so easy and incredibly tasty. I used my breadmaker to make the dough, but you can buy a pack of dough and follow instructions. I bake mine for a few minutes in the oven before adding topping. To make the tomato base fry some onion, garlic and basil in olive oil. When it looks cooked, add a carton of Asda passata. Let it simmer for while.
Goodness, it's a long time since I did anything crafty. I had to stay home today so it seemed like the perfect moment to start a quilt I promised my niece. It's turned out really well and the 2 extra pillowcases I picked up with my Ikea 'Rosali' quilt cover have really come in handy. They lend the quilt a nice bit of Kidston.
