Yummy For Your Tummy

Good morning, and happy Friday!  It looks like it promises to be a beautiful weekend here.  At least I hope so.  I've got a card to share with you today that I made with some of the newly released dies from The Scrapping Cottage.  I thought theses soda pop and hot dog dies were so cute, and of course would make great additions to picnic scrapbook pages, but I also thought they'd make a cute card, for those times when I'd like to include a gift card for eating out, and that's what I came up with for today. 
I used white card stock when cutting these dies out, and colored them with my Copic markers.  The card stock is all from Stampin' Up!, as is the grosgrain ribbon, sentiment, and the Sizzix label die.  The patterned paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Garden Variety Mini Deck, and I loved the 50's retro feel that it gave this card.  Be sure to head over to The Scrapping Cottage, and check out all the wonderful dies included in this month's release.  There are some absolutely adorable choices for making your cards and scrapbook pages come to life. 

I hope you have plans for a wonderful weekend, doing whatever it is that you love, and of course finding time for some happy stamping!

Love ya,
