Card and Cookies

Crafting AND cookies... what more could you want?
Except, on my diet, I am not allowed to eat these - tempting as they are.
Well... maybe just a little one... only to check quality control!!!

I found this House Mouse stamp sooo tricky to colour -
and my stamped image wasn't great to start with.
I need to get used to stamping such a large image.

I coloured with Copics and 3D'd the little 'cat was here' note.
The edges of my papers were distressed and
I punched the ribbon holes to thread the ribbon through the paper,
then added a bow at the top and the sentiment at the bottom.

I would like to enter this for the Sunday Sketch & Stamp challenge,
which is a fabulous sketch by Arianne

Cookies... more like little rockcakes really!

Makes 10

250g SR Flour / 1 tsp Allspice / 85g butter
85g caster sugar / 55g glace cherries / 55g Sultanas
1 egg / 2tbsps milk / brown sugar, for sprinkling

Heat the oven to 200C / 400F (I had my fan oven at 180C)
Sift the flour and allspice into a bowl.
Add the butter and rub in until it resembles breadcrumbs.
Stir in the sugar, cherries and sultanas. ( I added a few chopped pecans too!)
Break the egg into a bowl and whisk in the milk.
Pour most of the egg mix into the dry ingredients and mix with a fork.
Add the rest of the egg mix, if necessary, to make a stiff, coarse dough.
Using two forks pile the mix into 10 rocky heaps and a greased baking sheet.
Srinkle with the brown sugar.
Bake for 10 - 15 mins or until golden and firm to the touch.
