This is for this week's Muse, where we have our Guest Designer for February, Lisa Haines providing inspiration with this gorgeous card:
I focused on the monochrome colour scheme, the 3 hearts in the windows (Everyday Labels from Neat&Tangled), the little tail on the end of the sentiment (Hampton Arts) and the two dark horizontal lines.
I filled the little hearts with my new clear Wink of Stella pen for some sparkle. Makes a nice change from Stickles, right?
I hope you'll be able to join us at Muse this week. The deadline is Monday at 8:00 am, EST. Voting starts at that time and continues until Tuesday at 8:00 am and then the results will be posted on Tuesday at noon! You can vote even if you don't post a card!
Things may be quiet here for the next couple of days. Kate's 11th birthday party is on Sunday and it's quite a production! Hopefully I'll have some photos to share - we're planning a scavenger hunt and a special idea for the birthday cake. I can show you the treat I made for the loot bags - birthday cake fudge ( photo and recipe from Pinterest) - it turned out really well!
Birthday Cake Fudge
- 2 cups and 2 TBS white or yellow cake mix
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 stick butter cut into four pieces
- 1/4 cup milk
- 2/3 cup white chocolate chips
- Sprinkles (optional)
- 1 can of icing (optional)
line a 8x8 baking dish with foil, very lightly grease foil. In a large microwave safe bowl mix together cake mix
and powdered sugar until completely blended. Add in milk and butter.
Microwave for 2 minutes. You butter should be almost completely melted, if not stick it in for a bit more.
Stir together until blended, it will be a thick consistency.
Then fold in your white chocolate chips. The hot batter will melt them as you stir. Be sure to keep stirring and folding until you can’t see any more chocolate chips.
Pour (more like drop) you fudge batter in you foiled lined dish, smooth out with spatula. I like to use a piece of wax paper and icing smoother to get it nice and smooth and level.
Add sprinkles on top. If your icing these you can skip these steps and sprinkle after.
Let chill for up 30-60 minutes. Then lift foil out pull back, add icing and sprinkles if doing so, and cut into 1inch squares.
