Have a Cookie!!

So, when my friend Melanie told me that she was sending me a birthday present...I of course responded with a ....you REALLY don't have to do that. Well, Melanie being who she is, sent it anyway...and now I take it all back!! When I opened up the package, there it was, Melanie's new stamp set, Have a Cookie!! Now, I know I don't get to use her images as often as I would like...life has gotten crazy, but I STILL LOVE everything that she does!! Then, when she contacted me and asked if I would like to post along with the Gina K. team, I of course said YESSSSS!!!! So, here I am, posting with the SUPER talented Gina K. team giving all YOU people out there in blog land a look at not, but 5 images from her soon to be released set!! Melanie has done it again and absolutely PACKED as much stamping goodness onto one sheet of rubber-53 images in all...that's a TON!! I chose to go with a Christmas theme, since it is that time of year and I need to get a MOVE ON!! I stamped the gingerbread, tree, and star images on watercolor paper and colored them in with my SU markers. I then punched them out with my 1 1/4 square punch and layered them with a piece of Creamy Carmel punched out with my scalloped square punch from SU. As soon as I saw these three images, I automatically thought of a recent sketch challenge on SCS, so that is where the layout came from. I stamped my sentiment and framed it with some Stylized Silver Hardware from SU. The big silver brads were a gift from my friend Jackie. I also added some silver spiral clips with white taffeta, red and artichoke grosgrain on them. The satin ribbon around the middle is from a share I did with Jody, and the silver cord is one of the final pieces I have left of the original silver cord from SU. My DP is by Basic Grey and I paired it with Creamy Carmel, Ruby Red, and Always Artichoke. Well, that is it for me now...thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
