One Grumpy Beaver

Bubs the Beaver ….. He’s just so dang cute, and when I look at him, I just think that this poor guy is having a rough day!  Just imagine a sleepy beaver peeking out of his dam to take a look around at the glorious day and then PLOP! a big clump of snow from the tree branch above lands right on his head giving him a ‘good mornin’ Mr. Beaver’… this is EXACTLY what he’d look like….and what he’d say! 

The box was inspired by a box I made with Nancy Morgan (Paper Smiles) several weeks back.  I LOVED the box and thought it would work perfectly as a treat box!  I made it just  a little bit deeper and added a window so I could see the treat inside!  I’ll call these Snowy Beaver Dam Cookies – they’re damn good too!  (Okay they are a little on the sweet side, but after about, oh, say, 6, they aren’t too sweet - you become immune to the sweetness!!) 

Snowy Beaver Dam Cookies:

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips - 1 cup butterscotch chips (next time I’ll use peanut butter chips instead of butterscotch) - 4 cups chow mein noodles

Melt chips in microwave and stir in noodles, then scoop up and place in dams on parchment paper or foil. Let cool. Then drizzle with melted white chocolate for the snow!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!  I’ve got some girls coming over to stamp with me – yahooo for that!  I get to show them all my new Our Craft Lounge stamps and they can all DROOL over them!

Hi -- I don't mean to be "stalkerish" .. but I am just getting new info about the Shimmerz Paints ... and saw a link to the Shimmerzpaints blog where I saw your comparison chart for the white flowers .... but, of greatest interest to me (and now, dire NEED!!) is the image from your Halloween card sample -- the flying witch with the flourish. You credited Inkadinkado for the images .. I found the witch on their site, but I can't find the flourish image .. which is what adds the total WOW!!! Would you mind giving me some direction? PLLEEEAAASSSEEEE? Loydene
