Sassy Cheryl Challenge #165 GIRLS RULE!

For this week's challenge at Sassy Cheryl, I used the digi stamp, Bowlegged. I coloured her up with my Copics and used some bright spring-like colours to counter the freezing cold temperatures that we've been having today.Hope you like her.

Happy Mother's Day

For Mother's Day, I made up some delicious baked caramel corn and packaged it up in clear, icing bags. I used my Cricut to cut out little heart tags (Art Philosophy) and used a cute Stampin' UP sentiment; Happy Mother's day. I think they looked really cute but the popcorn didn't need any embellishing. It is very addictive.

Caramel Corn
1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 tsp salt
2 cups nuts (peanuts or cashews)
1/2 tsp baking soda
5 Quarts popped corn (I used one cup unpopped)
1 tsp vanilla

Melt butter in small saucepan. Stir in brown sugar and corn syrup and salt.
Boil on low heat for 5 min (stir almost continuously, burns easily)
Remove from heat and stir in baking soda and nuts.
Gradually pour over popcorn and nuts.
Mix well.
Turn into a large roasting pan.
Bake at 250F. Mix thoroughly every 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool completely.
Break apart and store in covered container.
