This is a old family favorite at Christmas time - ENGLISH TOFFEE. All the recipes I do for Deb's RoMC will be 4x6. I can get 6 bases out of one 12x12 sheet of DP, AND that size fits in the box. In fact, it's a bit small for the inside of the box. There's not much to this. I did color the lamp posts with Copics. The glass in the light was covered with Crystal Effects. In the end it's a pretty simple card but they don't all have to be ready for the Louvre, right?

So..What's a Circle Journal? A few years ago, invited 3 of my SCS friends to join me in passing a journal (book) around. One member has a month to add something special, news about the family or doings in her life, projects, etc before passing it onto the next person on the list. The last person on the list sends it back to the first person on the list, and it starts again with new stuff. We added 3 more ladies last year and it's a joy to see their work and families up close. This time around we decided to have a "Christmas Cookie Exchange". True, it will be July before I get it back but since we're only doing recipe cards it's fine! WARNING: If you start a Circle Journal, only do so with people you know are responsible and will keep it going. You don't want the CJ to fall into a black hole never to be seen again!!!
