A Sneak Peek & Fool Proof Fudge…Almost!

I had some fun this evening with Close To My Heart’s new January Inspirations Kit called Wings. I wanted to try out the new spray pen included in the Workshop on the Go Kit and decided to make a thank you card for a customer that placed an online order recently. I’ll be sending her this card along with the January Inspirations brochure so she can see all the fun new products coming in January!


Can you see the spray across the base of the card above? It was so much fun! All you have to do is put a few drops of Pearl Paint, a few drops of Reinker and water into the Spray Pen, then pump the nozzle a few times and viola…perfection!


I’ve also been having some fun making these rosette paper flowers. This one is made with a 1” x 12” piece of B&T Duos and is folded at 1/4” increments. I used a Colonial White Designer Brad for the center and then added an Opaque Adhesive Gem Pearl to the center.


Here’s another view and I think you should be able to see the shimmer of the Pearl Paint…oh, so pretty! The My Acrylix Stamp Set I used is the upcoming January Stamp of the month called Find Your Style. Be watching for lots more ideas using this set in the January Stamp of the Month Blog Hop coming January 1, 2011.


Now, onto the story of the Fool Proof Fudge I attempted to make this past weekend…


Here I was trying to be all professional and take some photos like The Pioneer Woman. When I pulled the fudge out of the refrigerator after it had set for an hour or two…this is what I found…


That would be a three year old’s finger prints poked all over the top of the fudge. Well, fortunately, it was actually the bottom of the fudge because I had to flip it onto the counter and pull the foil away and then cut it into bite-size pieces. Don’t worry…we didn’t use it for gifts or anything like that! LOL! It was just something fun to do and enjoy ourselves…finger pokes and all! Looks perfectly fine to me now…


I hope you have enjoyed my adventures in baking…with my three year old.

Have a wonderful day & make it from your heart!
