Whoooo Hoooo, some cardmaking

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.

No fuss Yummy Pepperoni Pizza

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.

These are the toppings I use on mine. All of these can be frozen so it makes it relatively cheap.

Spread your sauce first, then add cheese and then other toppings. Whatever you want really.

This was so lovely. Hence my taking a photo of it. Pure pizza heaven.

Some nice patchwork

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.
