Recipe Card

A while ago, when I used to go on the Docrafts forum, I belonged to a group of ladies who would swap Recipe Cards each month.  I loved making the cards, and testing the recipes of the cards that I received!  When my lovely friend Suzie Boo dropped by unexpectedly recently, although I hadn't done any housework (and indeed, was mid craft!) I did at least have a homemade cake to offer with a nice cup of tea!  Suzie liked the cake and asked for the recipe, so I made her a recipe card:

Making this card reminded me how much I used to enjoy this swap ... so if any of my lovely followers would like to swap a recipe card with me (and I'm pretty sure that Suzie would like to be in on a swap too) then let me know and we'll sort something out!  If you're reading this from Dublin Suzie, hope you don't mind me taking your name in vain!

Incidentally, Simnel Cake is a traditional Easter cake (so Suzie's visit probably wasn't as recent as I thought!) but I think that I will make this cake as my Christmas cake this year as it is lighter than my usual Christmas one but just as delicious!

  1. Awesome, I love the card and how vibrant it is, and the lollipop flowers are FABULOUS (I think I've said that before, but it's still true!) What a great idea, I'd love to be in on a swap, only I can't think of a thing that I make that is interesting in any way - although my kids do love the brownies I make with spinach and carrot puree! It's not my own recipe, it's from "Deceptively Delicious", so that would be cheating, wouldn't it? Anyway, I'll see if I can come up with something original, hugs, Roxy!

  2. Lovely card Carole.
    Hugs xx

  3. This is gorgeous Carole - think I quite fancy the idea of a recipe card swap - could do with cookery/baking inspiration. Let me know if it's going ahead.

  4. Thank you so much for my beautiful recipe card Carole, as you know, I adore it, and ofcourse the yummy cake too, just delish!!!!!!!
