The Diva's Weekly Challenge #197: UMT Arukas
I like Arukas very much. It's so "christmassy". So I tangled two tiles and I'm very happy with both. Normally I would tend to one or the other, but I can't really say which one I prefer. So I give the task to you! Let me know what you think. 

Thank you so much for looking by and for showing your interest.

Today is Saint Nicholas Day. It's a tradition here in Switzerland to bake little guys called "Grittibänz" for this day. Each member of the family gets one. And we will eat them for breakfast with butter and honey or jam. Look at them - they are so funny this year: big and sturdy.

If you want to try it:

500 g flour
1 1/2 teaspoon salt

mix it well

60 g butter (melted)
3 - 3 1/2 dl milk (lukewarm)
20 g fresh yeast or 
one bag dried yeast for 500 g flour
1 tablespoon sugar (for the yeast)        

mix it with the flour and knead it well until the dough is smooth. Then put it in a warm place and let it double. It takes 30 to 60 minutes. Then knead the dough again and form the guys. Bake them with 200 C in the oven for 20 - 25 minutes.
This Zendala will be my Chrstmas Greeting Card for my beloved ones.

It's been a while since I tangled for the diva's challenge. It was a busy time recently and I was'nt tangling a lot, but I always had a look what' the diva's challenges were.
This is for the challenge #196 All dolled up. I had this idea a few days ago when I was thinking about Christmas cards ideas. I like this cute angel looking into the sky. I also like the new Arukas tangle. It comes right for Christmas!
