Today was Priceless Stamp Camp!

Gosh it is Sunday! Where did the week go? I've been a bit slow blogging this week, mainly due to my internet problems, with my connection dropping in and out, continuously. It's very annoying and frustrating. I just keep telling myself, it's not long till we move into the new place and we get a better connection. Woohoo!

Today we had our Priceless Stamp Camp. With six girls sitting around the table, one beautiful new born baby, me hovering and the boys out for the afternoon, it made for a lovely afternoon. And the time just flew by too! All girls, made a box with 4 gift cards, using the colours of Groovy Guava, Purely Pomegranate and River Rock. We then moved on to make a bonus project and a lucky door prize at the end. Here's a pic of some of the bonus cards that I had made earlier:

Stamps: Priceless & Occasional Greetings

Inks: Stampin' Up! Classic Purely Pomegranate, Groovy Guava, River Rock & Chocolate Chip (or Basic Black)

Papers: Stampin' Up! Groovy Guava, Whisper White & Purely Pomegranate

Other: Purely Pomegranate double-stitched ribbon, circle & scallop edge punch, glitter, vintage brads and Stampin' Dimensionals.

Tip: Use glitter to enhance the flowers

I also promised to send out the recipe for the Caramel Tarts that we had as part of Afternoon Tea which we enjoyed with coffee, tea and chocolate fudge slice!

Caramel Tarts:

18 (220g) butternut snap biscuits

395g can sweetened condensed milk

60g butter, chopped coarsely

1/3 cup (75g) firmly packed brown sugar

1 tbl lemon juice.

1. Preheat oven to 160c/140c fan-forced. Grease two 12-hole shallow round-based patty pans.

2. Place one biscuit over top of 18 pan holes. Bake about 4 minutes or until biscuits soften. Using the back of a teaspoon, gently press softened biscuits into pan holes; cool.

3. Combine condensed milk, butter and sugar in small heavy-based saucepan; stir over heat until smooth. Bring to the boil; boil, stirring about 10 minutes or until mixture is thick and dark caramel in colour. Remove from heat; stir in juice.

4. Divide mixture among biscuit cases; refrigerate 30 minutes or until set.

Tonight I'll do the tally and send out the results of the fundraising bit. It's great to be able to do your bit for such a worthy cause.
