One egg, or two?

     Mmm, mmm!  Don't those cookies look delicious!  These are my hubby's favorite and no, the card is not THAT small, the cookies are THAT big!  LOL  I've made them smaller a couple of times, but he always wants to know why I'm messing with his cookies.  LOL
     Our Papercraft Star challenge this week is "The Kitchen".  I recently purchased this little chef for a couple of reasons.  (1) I'm a chicken fanatic, and (2) I just thought he was so cute!  :-)  He's from Bugaboo Stamps and he's called Roy Poly Chef.
     The card was made with a combination of papers.  The center piece is Making Memories and I just knew I had to use it since it looked so much like an old aged recipe card.   The decorative design is part of the paper and I stamped the sentiment.  I used a MFT Notebook edge die on the other edge to make it look like it had been in a notebook at some time or another.
     Mr. Roly Poly is colored with Copics.  I added some buttons and lace and those fun tickets.  My sweet friend Dana created those a long time ago and I grabbed them out of my file and added the words.
     We'd love to have you come join the challenge this week for a chance at winning some amazing digital image downloads from our sponsor, The House Across the Bay. The kitchen theme is wide open and we even have a yummy looking photo inspiration if you want to work from that.  Our photos are always optional. Make sure you check out the PCS blog this week at see what Jennifer has come up with to showcase our sponsors cool images.  AND................YAY!  This week we're introducing our newest team member, the amazing and very sweet, Jinny Newlin!  We're so excited to have Jinny join us and I'm sure you will be too when you get to see her wonderful projects each week.
     Hope to see you entered this week!  Be blessed!

Oh this is awesome Tracy! I came thiiiiiis close to buying that bugaboo not too long ago for my recipe book, even had it in my cart but got called away from the computer for some reason. (I think my hubby's wallet was burning in his pocket and he suspected something. lol) Those cookies look delish too!

Jinny Newlin said...

You are the Copic Queen, Tracy! You so need to come teach me a thing or two about shading. Although, don't introduce me to Copics, because then I'll "NEED" those pricey pens about as much as I need more chocolate. LOL! Your card is just the cutest thing! LOVE that little chef, and all your fabulous, layered details are so awe-inspiring!

I am totally distracted by those gorgeous looking cookies. Your card looks equally gorgeous and thank you for sharing it with us at Crafty Boots Challenges.

I'm off the the kitchen now to put the kettle on and a rummage round the cookie jar - I bet it is empty, again!
