Christmas Cards

Look what I can do! I had the best day yesterday! My friend Kim and I made home-ade Christmas cards. I made eighteen. We had so much fun.

I bought a pad of pre-scored coloured Christmas card paper and several packs of stickers. We also bought beautiful paper and different embellishments and "copied" ideas from a card magazine. Kim is very motivated and organized and her enthusiasm is contagious. HO HO HO.

Hi, Sandy, and thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog. :-)

You asked about a recipe for my sweet potato whip. I don't usually go by a recipe, I just eyeball things, but I'll try to tell you how I make it. I use about 3 to 4 cups of boiled and peeled warm sweet potatoes, a half a stick of softened real butter, half a cup of packed brown sugar and a jar of marshmallow creme. Make sure the sweet potatoes are as dry as possible. Put the sweet potatoes, butter and sugar in a food processor and pulse until smooth and combined. Add the marshmallow creme and pulse again until it's mixed well. You can either serve them room temperature, warm, or put them in a 350 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes if you want them hot. If you like cinnamon you can sprinkle them with a little bit of cinnamon. I love the smooth creamy texture of this dish.

Hope you enjoy them, and feel free to visit my blog anytime. :-)

Well, look at you. How cute! Isn't card making so fun? A couple of years ago I made all our Christmas cards. It quickly becomes habit forming. You'll find yourself sending people cards for no reason at all. You girls did a great job. These are adorable.
