Its Challenge time again over at The Stamping Boutique,  this week is one of my favorites:  add more then one layer.  Pretty easy come join us!

This is Jade's Cookies.  I was a cookie mom for many years and I loved every minute of it!!!!  The best part was the smell of all those cookies sitting in my garage.
I used this digi as a scrapbook embellishment so my daughter will have a lasting memory of those cookie sales!

Colored with copics and my glitter pens.  The cookie was cut from cookie DP and a Stampin Up Scallop punch for the bite.  Letters were cut from cork with my quickutz dies.

Happy Valentines Day!

I love Valentines Day, not only is it my Anniversary, I love hearts,and my favorite color is Red,  but it is a day to let the special folks in my life how much they mean to me.  Yes,  we should do it daily, but I for one get so caught up in daily activities I often forget.  Sad I know.
