BnW snowbabies bloghop release

Welcome to the Belles n' Whistles bloghop release. Today we want to show you the beautiful new snowbaby collection from BnW. You should have come to my blog from Lynda . The bloghop starts at the Belles n'Whistles blog

This time I have made a tealight card.  What is better than come in after playing in the snow, light a candle and drink a cup of hot chocolate with cream?  Here is a receipe:

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup white sugar
1 pinch salt
1/3 cup boiling water
3 1/2 cups milk
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup half-and-half cream


Combine the cocoa, sugar and pinch of salt in a saucepan. Blend in the boiling water. Bring this mixture to an easy boil while you stir. Simmer and stir for about 2 minutes. Watch that it doesn't scorch. Stir in 3 1/2 cups of milk and heat until very hot, but do not boil! Remove from heat and add vanilla. Divide between 4 mugs. Add the cream to the mugs of cocoa to cool it to drinking temperature.

The preorders for this and the other snowbabies starts today, Wednesday October 27. Shipping begins Friday, October 29. One of you who participate in this bloghop has the chance to win this new snowbaby collection. All you have to do is to leave a comment in the DT members blogs under the bloghop post and a comment in the BnW blog. I will also choose a randomly winner from my blog. The winner will get the stamp that I have used in front of my card.
If you order stamps from the snowbaby collection you also support the Brest Cancer  research. 10% of the proceeds will be donated to research.

I hope you enjoy our bloghop. The next person to visit is Kathrin

Thanks for your publication on this blog site. From my very own experience, periodically softening upward a photograph may possibly provide the wedding photographer with an amount of an inventive flare. More often than not however, the soft cloud isn't what exactly you had planned and can in many cases spoil an otherwise good image, especially if you anticipate enlarging this.
