Superliciously Easy Apple Turnovers...

 A few weeks ago I was looking for a quick and easy somethin' somethin' to make for dessert for our Sunday dinner.
While pawing through the fridge I noticed we had apples and crescent rolls....so I made up these superliciously easy apple turnovers.
Who doesn't love an apple turnover...it's the adorable cousin of apple pie.
 I roughly diced 4 apples and placed them in a frying pan with butter and brown sugar.
 I cooked the mixture until the apples were soft and the mixture was thickened.
 When the apple mixture had cooled, I cracked open the crescent rolls and added a generous tablespoon of apples to each roll.
 And rolled it up into little packets. This job was so easy my son did it!
 And baked the 'turnovers' until golden.
They came out of the oven looking like this....yum!
 And then we added a small scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce for a final delicious flair.
Easy, Good. Superlicious!

Happy Wednesday to all my sweet readers!
 You are all so special to me and thank you for visiting!

Let's Make Some Fun Pinwheel Cards!

Today I am getting together with 2 of my very favourite girlfriends for a fun & creative 'card day'.
We are meeting for a few hours so we can make cards. Each of us  must come up with a design for the group to make.
After pouring throught some magazines and books for ideas, I decided to design cards that included a fun & whimsical pinwheel.
I came up with 3 different colour combinations...blue, orange & green.
 Pink,gray and green.
 Blue, orange & yellow.
And I added a birthday greeting since it's the type of  card we use most often.
Here they are....I love how they turned out!


How To  Make A Pinwheel:

  • .Cut a square in the size that will fit your project. I used a 3x3 inch square for these cards
  • Cut an "X" on your square, being sure not to cut thru all the way thru the middle or you will have 4 separate pieces of paper.
  • Then fold one side of each triangle down as shown. Secure with a medium size  glue dot {or whatever adhesive works for you....glue, hot glue, etc.
Keep folding the same side of each triangle to the middle as shown.
When all 4 sides of the pinwheel are folded in, then add a small  button using another glue dot.
Then glue the pinwheel to the project.
Note: This pinwheel does not move. It is for decoration only.
Although I used my pinwheel to make cards, you could use it for many other things like a package decoration, or it could be glued to little sticks for decorations for food or plant pots, or whatever you heart desires!

Have you made any cards lately?
