Quick Stamped Handmade Cards DIY

Quick Stamped Handmade Cards DIY I have always love crafting, but handmade cards hold a place in my heart.

S'mores Bars Summertime Treat Recipe

S'mores Bars Summertime Treat Recipe Summertime is the best for late night campfires and roasting marshmallows. That yummy, sugary and totally sticky smore is what Summer childhood memories are made of. Make a S'mores bar that's easy to take to a party, have on a hot day without the fire. The best part is the recipe is so easy! I love how these delights turned out--I love S'mores cereal, so I knew it would be good. Ingredients Needed for S'mores Bars: 12 oz. S'mores Cereal 1/2 Cup Butter 7 oz. Marshmallow Creme Begin by pouring the entire 12.25 oz box of cereal in a large mixing bowl. Melt the butter and marshmallow creme in a sauce pan on the stove until melted and creamy. Then pour the buttery marshmallow creme mixture on the cereal and stir until well combined. Press the mixture into a glass baking dish (9x13) and let them cool completely. Then cut into squares and enjoy! Super simple, right!? Like

It's got pros and cons about it...but it's our life--and I love it. Our covered patio is where we live outside during the nice days of the year. We eat meals outside daily. We
