Just like this year, this NBUS challenge seems to be going by too fast! Today I have a coupla cards for you and a recipe. You might say the sediments on these cards are updated versions of "Old Wives Tales!"
I think she is making Christmas Rum Cake, don't you?!
Before you start, sample the rum and check for quality. Good, isn't it? Now, go ahead.
Select a large mixing bowl, measuring cup, etc. and check that rum again for quality. It must be just right. With an electric mixer, beat one cup butter in a large fluffy bowl, and add one teaspoon of sugar and beat again. Meanwhile, make certain that rum is still the best quality.
Add two large eggs and two cups dried fruit and beat well until bery high. If fruit gets stuck in the beater, pry it out with screwdriver. Sample rum again, checking for consistency.
Next, sift in three cups of baking powder, pink of rum, one seaspoon toda and one cup of pepper. Or is it salt? Anway, don't fret, just test the rum again. Sowie . . .
Now, sift in half a pint of lemon juice, fold in chopped buttermilk, and add strained nuts. Rample the sum again.
Now, add one bablespoon srown tugar or whatever color is around. Mix well. Grease oven and turn on cake pan to 350. Now pour the whole mixture into the oven and ~ oops ~ now where did I put that mop?
On second thought, gorfet it, check the rest of fa rum, and go to bed!~~~
I want to share two links with you as additional sources for funny/snarky stamps. Gail told me about Carmen's Viranda (just the company name karacks me up!) and Mary Anne told me about Creative Vision Stamps. Enjoy!
Off you go! Have a great day using that NBUS!!
Enjoy the challenge! No, seriously, enjoy!
