Pollycraft Challenge #90 Fun and Games with Emma

Wow what a mixed Monday this is for remembering those that have sacrificed for us.
Let's not forget those that are currently fighting for us and are away from their family and loved ones.

Also being Monday it means another Pollycraft Challenge is waiting for you. Our gorgeous DT member and sponsor this week is Emma.
Her challenge is:-
''Fun & Games''
You can interpret however you wish...children playing, a game themed card etc. Looking forward to seeing what you create.

Here's my card for you.

I have used SuperMaude (who partners great with Maurice!)
I was asked to make a Grandmother's card and thought this might be fun for something a little different and FUN!!
The prize for one lucky winner is a £10 voucher to spend over at Crafty Emma's Store.
(Please note p&p not included)

Please join us for some fun this week at Pollycraft Challenges.

Lest We Forget

Yes it's a sad day but a day to remember those that have sacrificed their lives for us and also the men and women who are still fighting for us today.

It's also the day my gorgeous niece, Olivia was born. (not the same year of course! hee hee)

I would like to celebrate this day and also remember the ANZAC BISCUIT!!
(Like we haven't eaten enough this Easter weekend!)

So I give to you the recipe!

A group of women during World War 1 decided to make biscuits to send to the soldiers
that would provide nutrition and keep for a long time. They were originally called Soldiers
biscuits but after Gallipoli the name was changed to Anzac biscuits.

Recipe for Anzac Biscuits.

1 cup rolled oats

1 cup plain flour

1 cup sugar

¾ cup coconut

125g (4oz) butter

2 tablespoons golden syrup

½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

1 tablespoon boiling water

1) Combine oats, sifted flour, sugar and coconut.

2) Combine butter and golden syrup, stir over gentle heat in a small saucepan until

3) Mix bicarbonate of soda with boiling water in a teacup. Add to melted butter mixture.
Pour into dry ingredients and stir.

4) Place tablespoonfuls of mixture on oven trays (for easy cleanup place a piece of
baking paper on the tray)

5) Cook in a slow oven for 20 minutes. Makes about 35.

6) Try and stop your family eating them while they are still warm and soft.

Once they are cool they will go harder and you can store them in a container.
I'm sure you won't need the container! lol.
A day to remember ALL that made sacrifices, not only on the front lines but at home as well.
Sending all my love and prayers for those who are fighting for us today!

Pollycraft Challenge #89- Maria's sketch & vintage theme

We are half way through our school holidays here and we've had a weekend of rain! I know, I know, great crafting weather! lol.
It's time for another Pollycraft challenge and this week our marvelous Maria has designed a sketch for us to follow with a vintage theme.
I posted on Friday that our DT lady, Emma is doing some fundraising using the image designed by Paula. You can find the image here and Emma's story here. I've made a card to show you what he looks like all coloured up and at home on a card.
Here is "Vintage Ronnie!"

 and here is Maria's sketch for you to follow.

I hope to see you all in the challenge!

A 'Just Because' card

Just quickly wanted to share my card with you.
I'm still trying to use up paper I have stashed away along with images that I've stamped up and never ussed.
This is a Magnolia image that I love but being Easter themed you have a slight window of opportunity each year to use it! My next mission, (if I chose to accept it!) will be to use themed images and make them into a 'different themed' card. Such as this one I could make it a birthday card or welcome home to a new addition!
Anyhow, enough ranting. Here's my card.

 I'm also going to enter this into the Just Magnolia Challenge as I used their sketch to help me this week.

Pollycraft Challenge #87 Old/Negleted stamp/image

Welcome to another MONDAY!!
Can you believe we're in April already? I'm happy that it brings us closer to Easter but not further into the year! Going so fast.
Here's something to keep you busy! I've set the challenge this week at Pollycraft to use your
"Old/Negleted Stamp/Image"

Paula sent me this stamp not long after joining the Pollycraft team and ashamedly never inked it up. I was so busy and then one day I found it at the back of my draw. It was then I knew what challenge to set myself but then decided to set it for everyone!
I hope you can join us.
You are going to want to be in with the chance of winning this week. Paula has generously put up a prize of our newest release and they are just adorable.
Pop over here to check them out.

I will be missing in action for a little while as I'm taking a road trip for a little r & r. I will check out all your wonderful creations on my return! Have fun.

Keep creating, Kylie xo
