Instructions for the Goodie Card

As promised I wrote some instructions for the Hot Chocolate Goodie card I made the other day.

Hot Chocolate Goodie card
Word Play clear/120651
Tags Til Christmas/121169
Candy Cane Christmas DSP/120809
1 ¾ circle punch/119850
2 3/8 circle punch/118874
Scallop Circle punch/118874
Scallop Envelope Die/113462
Real Red CS/102482 ribbon/117286 ink/ 103133 marker/100052
Whisper White CS/100730
Blushing Bride CS/ 119796
Baja Breeze CS/ 111352 ink/ 111833 marker/120965
Northern Frost Die/120901
Dazzling Diamonds Glitter/102023

8 ½ X 8 ½ inch Baja Breeze Card base
Score at 3 ¾ and at 4 ¾ Fold on all the score lines. This gives you an inch for the test tube.
In the center of the middle fold lines approx. 4 inches up from the bottom, make a cut horizontal and make another cut at 4 ¾ from the top. This will give you the band to hold your test tube. You can then push the band inside the card.
Cut 22 inches of ribbon and wrap around the front and back. I put a section of sticky strip on the back to hold it in place. I positioned the ribbon so it would cover part of the test tube opening.
Cut DSP 3 ½ X 8 ¼ then apply to the front over the ribbon, and inside panels .
Cut out 1 of the scallop envelope dies in Baja Breeze and the other in DSP. Cut off the scallop edge of both the DSP and Baja Breeze envelops.
Fold the envelopes so the flaps are toward the card base. Adhere to the base with Sticky Strip.
Adhere the scallop flaps that you cut off to the opposite envelope. Such as, the Baja Breeze flap to the DSP envelope.
Stamp the inside snowman image in Baja Breeze on Whisper White and punch it out.
Punch out two Real Red scallop circles.
Using the Baja Breeze Marker and the Real Red maker color in your sentiment for the front, then punch it out.
Using Dimensionals apply each stamped image to the front and the inside.
Die cut the Northern Frost Snowflakes in Whisper White.
Adhere snowflakes to the front of the card and on the scallop envelopes.
Use two way glue and apply to the ornament in the sentiment and the snowflakes. Then apply glitter to all areas that you just applied glue.
Fill the test tube with mini marshmallows. I handpicked mine so I got the smaller sizes.
Fold the Hot Chocolate packet so the edges are folded inside so it fits in the envelope.
I added a Ghiradelli Peppermint Bark Square in the upper envelope.
Tie your Goodie card close and you have a cute little giftie for someone.

Quilt Top

This is my very first Flying Geese quilt top. I've made a few other quilt patterns but this is my first Flying Geese. I have one more to finish and then get quilted, as long as my hands hold out.

Advent Calendar

I made this from a post by the stamp doctor. It is made in a mini muffin pan $4.00 at "W"
I used Holly Jolly DSP,Scallop circle and a circle punch. I printed the numbers from the computer. I have one peanut butter cup in each muffin hole. The Top circle is taped to the top of the peanut butter cup with a thick strong magnet on the candy bottom so it will stick to the muffin pan, it is a nice gift for someone and they can use the muffin tin later. I finished it off with a pretty bow taped to the top.
Thanks for looking,

First Snow and Pumpkin Roll

We are getting our first snow in Rapid City and that always makes me feel all Holiday-ish.This is a recipe that Phyllis brought to club and it is to die for! Happy Birthday Phyllis!

Printed from COOKS.COM


Dazzle family and friends with Libby's® Pumpkin Roll; moist and creamy, with a tantalizing aroma and beautiful presentation.


1/4 cup powdered sugar (to sprinkle on towel)
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup LIBBY'S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)

PREHEAT oven to 375°F. Grease 15 x 10-inch jelly-roll pan; line with wax paper. Grease and flour paper. Sprinkle a thin, cotton kitchen towel with powdered sugar.
COMBINE flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt in small bowl. Beat eggs and granulated sugar in large mixer bowl until thick. Beat in pumpkin. Stir in flour mixture. Spread evenly into prepared pan. Sprinkle with nuts.

BAKE for 13 to 15 minutes or until top of cake springs back when touched. (If using a dark-colored pan, begin checking for doneness at 11 minutes.) Immediately loosen and turn cake onto prepared towel. Carefully peel off paper. Roll up cake and towel together, starting with narrow end. Cool on wire rack.


1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, at room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
6 tablespoons butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Powdered sugar (optional for decoration)

BEAT cream cheese, 1 cup powdered sugar, butter and vanilla extract in small mixer bowl until smooth. Carefully unroll cake. Spread cream cheese mixture over cake. Reroll cake. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least one hour. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving, if desired.
Cooks Tip: Be sure to put enough powdered sugar on the towel when rolling up the cake so it will not stick.

Estimated Times: Preparation - 45 minutes; Cooking - 13 minutes; Cooling Time - 1 hour refrigerating.

Yields 10.
