Today's Challenge over at The Pink Elephant is a Sketch Challenge!!! Our Sponsor this week is InStyle Stamps! Early this year, I had the fabulous opportunity to be a Guest Designer for Virginia and really enjoyed working with InSTyle Images, so I am very excited that they are our Sponsor!!!
Tristan is taking these sweet Puppies for a ride in his little red wagon. I love this retro image and paired it with some DP that I found in my drawer. I am not sure for the life of me where it's from, but I really liked how it matched the card. Base Colour for the card is Pacific Blue
If you'd like to play along, please see all the details over at The Pink Elephant and don't forget to click on the links on my sidebar to see the Fabulous DT creations!
My Candy Making has been cutting into my Stamping time a little, but I'm happy to say that between my Candy and my Mom's yummy cookies, our friends and family will have full tummies this Christmas!
It's sure been difficult trying to stay away from the treats!!! I placed them out of sight and mind in the cold storage cupboard, but every once in awhile, I'd stray in for a little sample.....I had to make sure that they were still good enough to give away!!!
A little Closer Look
I made Almond Toffee Bark, Candy Cane Bark, Brown Sugar Fudge, Chocolate Fudge and two types of Saltine Toffee Bars. Oh yes and the Spider Cookies that you see on the Cookie Trays are also my project!!!! I specialize in Chocolate! One can never have enough!
Does this look tempting or what? Each year, my Momma makes dozens and DOZENS of Cookies. Made with love, they are perfectly uniform, with each cookie being almost the same size. I took these shots this morning when we were assembling the trays.....and I must say I was very disciplined, with only one cookie making it into my cakehole today!!!! lol!
Shortbreads, Molasses Snaps, Oatmeal, Worlds Finest, Pecan Balls, Rolled Oats, Double Chocolate Nuggets, Peanut Butter`with and without Chips
Dutch Nutmegs, Skor Cookies, Swedish Pastry with Cherries, Hermits, Dateballs, Cherry Winks.....see those Chocolately ones.........yep, My Fave......Spider Cookies-Peanuts and Chowmein noodles ensconced in melted Chocolate and Butterscotch chips!!!!.......Hmm I think I covered them all.
Now all thats left to do is some cleaning! The gifts are purchased and wrapped, the Christmas Cards mailed out, enough baking to feed half of Kingston..........just to tackle those dust bunnies.......ohhh I DO NOT like cleaning one little bit!!! Think I better ask Santa for a hunky Man Maid this year!!!!.................. I'll pay him in Cookies!!!!
Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas. Whatever Holiday you celebrate, may it bring you Happiness and Health and warm memories with your families.
Hugs and Love,
