Snickers Cake

This looked so good that I thought I would share...
Maybe this will be Father's Day Dessert here :)

SNICKERS CAKE

1 box devils food cake mix, plus ingredients to make the cake
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 jar Smucker's hot caramel ice cream topping
1/2 cup chocolate chips
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 snickers candy bars, chopped
1/3 cup peanuts, chopped
caramel sauce
chocolate sauce

Bake cake in a 9x13-inch pan according to direction on the package.

While cake is baking, mix condensed milk and hot caramel topping until well blended. When the cake is done and while it's still hot, poke holes in it with a fork or straw. Pour milk mixture over the cake. Allow cake to cool completely. Sprinkle chocolate chips over cake.

Thanks for visiting!

What's Shakin? and a shower gift

Hi all!  Today I wanted to show you a cute little recycled Skippy Peanut Butter jar.  I put the paper piecing on an action wobble - so fitting for this right!? LOL (could not get a photo of it wobbling though)
I used one of the Hot Peppers from the Cinco de Mayo pattern set and one of the labels from  Laurie's Labels... both sets are from  Designs on Cloud 9
The sentiment on the label is from one of Joyslife.com's new stamp set "That Tastes Punny"
you can get the new sets here.
I plan on collecting the Box Tops for Education and Campbell's Labels in the jar.
I also wanted to share a shower gift I made ... I decorated a Wilton Cupcake/sheet cake carrier with vinyl then put a cupcake cook book, cupcake wrappers, cupcake tin, sprinkles, cake mix, wooden spoon and towel inside and then wrapped it all up in cellophane with a pretty bow.
 the cute little cupcake on the side is from Designs on Cloud 9's Sweets for my Sweet set.
Thanks for visiting!

Hello Super Friend

I almost forgot about this weeks DT post, so when I came home from work last night and got the kids all settled into bed, I threw this little card together for my Daughter to write a friend in NC.  I used the print and cut feature on the Silhouette Cameo which I LOVE, since I can be an air brain and still get a cute project done in little or hardly any time.  I used the "Star Border" (welded to a rectangle) and "Super Boy" patter sets from Designs on Cloud 9 and one of Joylife.com's NEW stamp  sets "My Hero" Perfect fit for this cute little super guy.
Thanks for visiting!

Say Cheese

So I started out making this a card, but then thought 
"hmmm this would make a cute (somewhat large) embellishment for a layout".  
So that is what I am going to do with it... When you ask?  That I am not sure of... 
have to find the right photo(s).
I used Designs on Cloud 9's "Background Circles" (thought it would make a great cheese look)
and the hanging mouse from the "Insta-Cutie" pattern set
The cute and perfectly fitting sentiment is from one of 
Joyslife.com 's NEW stamp collections, "That Tastes Punny" which you can pre-order now.
Thanks for visiting!
