Let's Blog Hop! The New Yummy New Belles N' Whistles Are Here!
Woo Hoo! It's Blog Hop Time over at Belles N' Whistles and if you've come here from Iris's blog then you are on the right track. If not, make sure that you start the blog hop at our Belles N' Whistles blog and make sure you follow Anki's directions there. There's some sweet and yummy candy that is up for grabs and I'd so hate for you to miss out on it.
So on to the cards! The time is here to show off some new Belles N' Whistles stamps that will be available to order tomorrow, Saturday, September 19th and to be shipped next week! If you've read much of my blog, you know what a huge Harry Potter fan I am and I was so excited when I found out I got to present The Scarecrow and Wizard for you! Isn't this just the absolutely cutest thing? I took one look at it and fell in love!
This cutie is colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS and highlighted with Glossy Accents, Stickles, my clear Jelly Roller gel pen and my Glaze pen.
Don't you just love this close up of him handing the scarecrow a piece of candy? As you blog hop, you'll notice a theme with this release. They all have something to do with baking or food of some type. So we've got some recipes for you! When I saw this baby, I thought of the home made Caramels that we used to make so I want to share my recipe with you.
Ingredients: 2 cups of Sugar, 1/2 cup of light corn syrup, 1/2 cup of milk; 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 4 teaspoons of butter, 1 cup of heavy cream
Cook to stiff ball at 246 degrees. Add vanilla, pour into a buttered pan. When it cools, take it out and cut it into squares and wrap in wax paper. That's it!
I hope you give this recipe a try. I'd love to hear how it comes out for you! Before you leave here, make sure you leave a comment to be eligible for the blog hop prize. I'd hate for you to miss out. Now to continue on with the blog hop, make sure you go next to visit Rosette. I'm sure she's got something very yummy for you! Make sure you take your fork with you to visit!
