When I saw this image from Stamping Bella I knew I HAD to have it - I love to bake & all my friends in Toronto & their kids LOVED when I made cookies because I make them & give them away! I was even known as the "Cookie Lady" to one of my friends sons. I made this valentines day card for her & another girlfriend who will laugh at the cake holder they are on; every time we went shopping at Winners/Homesense I would put one in our cart THEN by the time we would leave the store I would talk myself out of buying it; now after making the cards I really want a cake tray - I might just have to wander over to Homesense; but will one actually make it to my house?!

I actually decided to try sewing on this card; we bought a new sewing machine so I could hem pants for my hubby; yep the only thing I have sewn is a card - best not let him find out I got it working otherwise he will be wondering when the pants will get done!

I even managed to find something to paper piece on this card; really it is becoming a bit of an obsession isn't it?! Cookie Love is stamped on Gina K pure luxury paper and coloured with copics, I used an Atyou Spica on the heart then added some Crystal effects to give it some dimension & shine. The DS paper is all from Basic Greys "Bittersweet" collection. All the other paper is from SU; Rose Red, Chocolate Chip & Kraft. The chocolate chip is embossed with Sizzix hearts and I added some lovely Stamping Bella dots for a little bling

Funny I haven't used any stamps from Stamping Bella & I was in total withdrawal; yep I am definitely an addict of all things Bella - can't wait for my latest order to arrive!!

Thanks for stopping by have a great Thursday - really I only have 2 more Valentines cards to make not bad Huh?!
