What U got Cookin?

Hello everyone - last night I went to my craft room and saw a stamp that I wanted to use that I haven't used for a very long time - it is the circular background stamp that says "Hey Good Lookin ..." I immediately thought of this baking Tilda to go with it so I searched my scrap stash for paper and found the color combo I wanted to use and the rest of it came together easy peasy - well sort of!! I am terrible - before I started this blog idea when I got new stamps I would take them out of their packaging and file them away in a binder. Now I do not know from what company some of my stamps are from and this is one of them. The forks and knife and the "Kiss the Cook" are all from the same stamp set. If anyone really wants to know please email me and I can find out for you - I would just have to go and ask at my local stamp store where I purchased it. Once I stamped Tilda I cut her out and paper pieced her clothing. I used my scalloped nesties and SU circle cutter to get the proper fits. I added some Tim Holtz Walnut Stain distress ink to some of the background, did some faux stitching and cut-out 3 flowers from the DP to complete the card. I must say I was pleasantly pleased with the results this time - I am very picky (with myself) so often I am not totally happy with my cards but I do know it is a work in progress and the more I make them the better I will become and happier I will be with the results. I thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and to be a part of this journey with me. I hope you have a fabulous day - mid-week - slowly but surely getting closer to the weekend!!!

Your stamping friend - Debbie
