About Samantha

Hi my name is Samantha and I make crafts. I'm an accountant and a self employed bookkeeper. I love animals and I have a dog. I first started making cards in 2005 and had positive feedback not just from family but from customers. Now I have this blog to show my crafts. My Husband gave me lots of inspiration to start a new hobby, I started to make them for family, then after they liked them I made them for friends, and people I worked with. I have always loved arts and crafts since I was a little girl. I also love to cosplay at http://acecostume.blogspot.co.uk/

Dog pancake

For shrove Tuesday last week I made my son a little doggy pancake


I used raisins for the nose and eyes and a little raspberry for the tongue.

I just used a basic recipe

Ingredients
100g plain flour

2 large eggs

300ml milk

1 tbsp sunflower or vegetable oil, plus a little extra for frying

lemon wedges, to serve (optional)

caster sugar, to serve (optional)

Method
Put the flour, eggs, milk, 1 tbsp oil and a pinch of salt into a bowl or large jug, then whisk to a smooth batter. Set aside for 30 mins to rest if you have time, or start cooking straight away.

Set a medium frying pan or crêpe pan over a medium heat and carefully wipe it with some oiled kitchen paper. When hot, cook your pancakes for 1 min on each side until golden, keeping them warm in a low oven as you go.

Serve with lemon wedges and sugar, or your favourite filling. Once cold, you can layer the pancakes between baking parchment, then wrap in cling film and freeze for up to 2 months.

Thumb-body loves you anniversary card

I love making cards with my son, it’s such a joy to do.

It was my in-laws anniversary last week and we made them a handmade card.


We made thumb prints and then I drew it into a tree.

On the inside is my son’s handprint


My son just loves to paint a draw, must get it from me 😊😊❤️❤️


He added stickers too ❤️❤️❤️
