It's a knockout

Good afternoon everyone x

I am on one weeks holiday (half term), much needed I can tell ya, lol.

The weather has been quite nice here for the last few days. Put's you in such a better mood. I decided to have a proper Spring clean today. It feels soooo good to have everything done. Now I can get on with crafting.

Yesterday I decided to have a bash at making cake pops. I purchased the silicone mould. I can tell you, mine turned out a disaster!!! Lol.
I used a chocolate sponge cake mix & then white chocolate & sprinkles to decorate. 
First of all the bloomin mould was not sealed properly, hense the mixture spread out. Should have left them longer to cool down, coz some sponge stayed in mould, even though it was well greased. Melted chocolate in microwave, stuck in sticks then added to cake pop. I went in too far, some just  slid down !!! Well, when it came to covering the cake pops, I got in such a mess & it was like keeping spinning plates going, lol.
Still, I will NOT give up. I will try again.

A few weeks back I won some blog candy off of Donna @ Bearly Mine Designs. I got a total of 80 stamps & each one is lovely.
I made a thank you card for Donna & she has let me know that she has got it, so now I can share it with you all x

Hope you like ........
