Sweet Cookie Jar Friend

I'm not sure of this little gal's name....but I sure do like her style!

This image is on from Just Some Lines.  I've told you about them before, but I really can't stop using their images!

Have I ever mentioned that my husband and I own a scrapbook retreat?  At the retreat, we have a share center so that people can leave papers and supplies behind or take some new found treasures home with them.  The reason I am telling you about that is so I can tell you why I don't know the source of this paper.  I just know that someone left it behind and I snatched it up. 

The pink was perfect and I thought adding the green and blue made it look a bit vintage.  I ran the pink and the blue pieces through an embossing folder to give them texture which I seem to like these days.

The die I used for the focal image is from Spellbinders and is called Labels Sixteen.  This is the first time I have used this die and I think I am in love!

The bow is a scrap of white seam binding and the button is from PaperTrey Ink.  I colored the image with Copic markers and used a bit of pink chalk inside the embossed edges.  The sentiment is from MFT Stamps.

I just placed an order with MFT Stamps and am crossing my fingers that it will arrive this weekend.  I can't wait to show you what I have in mind for my new collection of dies and stamps.

See you tomorrow.  I'll be back with something new and fun.
