Christmas Granny!

Isn't this just the sweetest looking old lady? I bet she would bake me up a fresh batch of cookies if I came to visit! LOL!

This image is from the SWALK line at Crafter's Companion and it is called "Winter Cheer". You can find it by clicking HERE!

I embossed the background paper and did some real stitching on the outside rim just to frame the image out a little. Colored the image up with my Copics and added some flowersoft to the basket. Also put a bit of glossy accents on her glasses to make them shine. The flower was cut using a sizzix die and I also added flowersoft to the inside to give it more dimension. Hope you like my first Christmas card for this year! :)

Butter Pecan Chocolate Coconut Marshmallow Bars!

Is that title a mouthful or what? LOL! I had a box of butter pecan cake mix sitting around and wanted to try out a new recipe so I did a search online and found this recipe using only a handful of ingredients. I had all of them in the cupboard too which was even better! For some reason I didn't have high hopes for this recipe but let me tell you they turned out ooey gooey and heavenly! I'm sure if you couldn't find the butter pecan cake mix you could use whatever flavor you liked. I'm all about switching up recipes to suit my tastes or using up what I have on hand to save a trip to the store!
