Just a little yum-yum!! White Trash Truffles

This is from Melanie Welchs blog- Thanks girl for letting me share it here!!http://stampadoodledoo.blogspot.com/ Melanie Welch

".....And let me just say........you are going to LOVE these! If you don't like cream cheese, don't pre-judge because of that! I hate cream cheese too, but these are to die for and you can't taste the cream cheese AT ALL!! Now if you hate chocolate....first of all.....my condolences!! And second, you won't like these, they are the most chocolatey goodness you will ever put in your mouth!!"
White Trash Truffles

1 pack of Oreos
1 - 8 oz block Cream Cheese (room temp)
2 bags Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips

--Crush Oreos in a ziploc bag until they are a fairly fine consistency. Mix Oreos with Cream Cheese.
Shape into 1 inch balls. Melt chocolate chips.
Dip balls into melted chocolate to completely coat.
Set on waxed paper lined cookie sheet.
Put in fridge to set chocolate. OH MY!!"

I had these months ago at a party- So glad I found the recipe on Melanies blog!!
Scrumptious!!

"Zin-Dahlia-Mum" flower!



Oh dear, I hope these arent taking up weird space!! lol
Sample #2 for class on the 15th.
Oh I LOVELOVELOVE the Fabulous Flowers set!!
Look at those words!! Aint they cool?!!
I CASEd the catty on pg. 4. Check out the New Style Watch section pgs. 4-9.
Showcases coordinating sets and paper colors and ideas! Cool idea!
I used River Rock as base card, stamped with Linen bkd in Wild Wasabi.
Stamped Baroque Motifs in Choc. Chip in corner, & on Choc strip on Bottom, &
D2B-Fabulous in Choc. Chip ink.
Stamped that FAB "Zin-Dahlia-Mum" flower in Groovy Guava on Shimmer paper, then trimmed down the petals cuz it was just too big! Distressed edges with Choc Chip, and layered it with Shimmer paper covered in G Guava and punched with 5 Petal punch. Stamped off the smaller flower to get a light peach color using Guava, and Antique brad, and popped up on Dimensionals! Wow-TMI!! lol
Dyed white Grosgrain ribbon with Groovy Guava (waiting for my GG Dbl stitch ribbon!)
I think thats it! Enjoy and thanks for looking!

Sample for my New Catty Class Sunday the 15th!!
Fairly simple, utilizing 2 new punches-Scallop and 5 Petal flower punch. I stamped Shimmer paper in Blue bayou with Linen stamp, then punched out Scallop, cut it in half, and spread it out under the ribbon to make it appear larger.
Punched Porcelain Prints DS paper with the Flower punch,green flower from WANTED set, green Rhinestone brad in center. Blue Bayou ribbon, and stamped "zin-dahlia-mum" (lol-scs) flower from Fabulous Flowers in corner. FRIEND stamp is from
All Holidays set (my dear kind friend stamp).
