Cookie Treats

This week, I sent a little batch of cookies with Josey to her track meet. She has a group of girls that she hangs out with and I thought they would love some yummy treats. I used Just Rite's new Homemade Treats set and simply stamped the images with black ink onto Papertrey Hibiscus Burst solid color cardstock. I added some glitter to the milk glasses and then punched out my circles with Marvy punches. I tucked the cookies into some Papertrey Large Glassine Bags and tied on some extra long ribbons. The girls like to wear the ribbons in their pony tails.
While I had my stamps out I made a card. I added a little more detail this time, using my Copic markers to color in the cookies and to add a little shading. I cut and embossed my main image with a Spellbinder's Circle Nestabilities Die and then adhered that to a scallop cut Spellbinder's die.
I love that Just Rite is coming out with images that can be colored. It just adds so much to projects to see a little color. I'm keeping this card in my stash to give out to a friend/teacher next time I bake a batch of chocolate chip cookies.

Well, Jordan will be getting off the bus soon so I'm going to scoot on out of here and start my weekend. I did a little shopping in the big city today while visiting my brother in the hospital. I'm hoping to use some of my goodies on some scrapbooking projects (I've really gotten back into my scrapbooking and I LOVE it!!).....and I'm going to spend some good, quality time with the family over the weekend. Have a great weekend everyone!!

Speaking of scrapbooking...did you ever finish your December Daily scrapbook. I'd love to see some pics of your pages if you did. If you didn't...then I'd feel so much better because I'm still on Dec. 10th and it's April :)

Hello
What a great project! I've never ordered Just Right Stamps but think I might have to. Do they let you know which wooden stamper to buy that coordinates with the sets? I didn't see on their website which one you'd use with this stamp set. I have been a bit apprehensive about these stamps and was hoping you could provide some tips! Thanks!

Such a cute card. I love the sparkly milk. Have you tried using Shimmerz paints yet for the extra sparkle? I bet you would love it. Go to www.shimmerzpaints.com and check them out. I'd love to see what you can do with them.
