I also have to get to the Post Office today and get my tags mailed off for the swap that I'm in. Might possibly hit Archivers, just depends.
I hope to have something new up later today. It might just be another recipe though. Have a great day all.

Those are all the item you need for a card for the latest challenge at Christmas Cards Year Round. I have them all here. Everything but the flowers is Stampin' Up! The flowers are from Close to my Heart. I did have to add stickles, you know they can't be glitterless! I used the Designer Paper Sweet Always for the background and for the Build-A-Brad in the center of the flowers. Cardstock is Certainly Celery and Pink Pirouette and the ink is Certainly Celery.

These are just two of the tags I did for a swap I signed up for. Almost no stamping involved except for the verse. These are actually cocktail napkins and I am pleased with the way they turned out. I hope the ladies who get them like them. The sayings are from Stampin' Up! and the Brown fiber is Stampin' Up! along with the cute clips. On the snowman those fibers are from my very large stash. Do you think they will like them???

Butter a 9 x 13 roasting pan and set aside
Have 12 ounces of Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips and 12 ounces of German Chocolate broken into small pieces in a large bowl. Set aside
4 1/2 cups granulated Sugar
1 large can condensed milk
1 pat butter ***
Pinch of Salt
16 ounces of Marshmallow Creme
Bring the above 5 ingredients to a boil in a very large saucepan. Boil for 6 minutes stirring continuously. Pour syrup mixture into bowl with Chocolate and stir well until all the chocolate is melted. You may add nuts if you wish. Allow to cool completely before slicing.
This is not a cheap candy but it really makes a lot. Stores well in the freezer and make a great gift.
Now I need to get the rest of my ingredients so I can get it made. Hope you give it a try.
*** I've been asked about this and I just usually cut about the amount I would use to butter toast, don't ever measure it.

I pulled out one of the small Christmas trees from the attic so I could hang up some of my newly made ornaments for this year. This is very small and I just have them there until I get out my big tree. Theses are actually going to be gifts for family members but I wanted to show you all. On here I have my Felt Flurries I made from Stampin' Up!, I have my snowment made from directions I got from my friend Beth, I have only one microscope slide ornament so far and two Snowflake Chipboard Ornaments. These are pieces I got last year but didn't get around to doing until now.
I do have some holiday crafts I'm working on and I hope to get that up later today. It needs to dry right now.
