New Catalog Sneak Peek Part II... and Praline Pecan Muffins Recipe



Everyone whom I show this stamp set to really wants one of their own!  The cute little bees are just adorable, and I'm going to be working with this stamp first as it is my absolute favorite of the sneak peek sets!


Can you envision black and white gingham ribbon wrapped around a top note stamped lovingly with bees?  And cardstock the color of honey and a warm brown pot too?  Or a panel of adorable bees dancing across a sweet card to a loved one?   Not sure where I'll start.. but I'm guessing that will be a good start! 


I'm sure there's lots more fun and wonderful stamp sets in the new catalog too... I know I'll be ordering the day of the catalog release... how about you??



As promised... here is a picture of the Raspberry Tart Designer Series Papers too!  I showed my hostesses the papers during my appreciation luncheon.. and they were thrilled with these papers.  The colors are rich, the patterns are gorgeous... lots of potential here!!   If you're stuck in a gloomy winter spot... these papers will bring thoughts of spring, flowers, and bright sunshine - y days!


Praline Pecan Muffins were served at my hostess luncheon, and everyone wanted the recipe...  so I told them I would share it here on my blog.. These muffins are very good after they've cooled, but they are REALLY FABULOUS warm from the oven... they are really quite simple to mix up too!!

Yummy, and the smell really great too! I made these Pecan Praline Muffins this morning, and they really do melt in your mouth! Roll me out the door, I'm going to make them again and again!
