Be Good To Yourself - You Deserve It !

   This is one of my favorite stamps from LORALIE - called "Jake the Baker" and when someone on the Cricut Message Board requested a gift bag and tag with a Baking or Cooking theme I just couldn't wait to use it for the first time !  I stamped and fussy cut a couple of  "Jakes" and then colored him in with my Spectrum Noir pens...Mounted him with foam tape to a background which is a Cuttlebug 5x7 Checkered Tablecloth that was embossed on white cardstock and then I brushed it with Tuxedo Black ink , and used b/w checked ribbon for the bow, and a "fleur de lis" punched border on a rectangle of textured gold cardstock served as the carrier for the sentiment stamp...." You deSERVE it..." as Jake Serves up a piece of cake !
   I put this on a bag which came from a lovely store in my town that recently closed  (sadly) which I had saved because it had the golden "Bakers and Cooks" stamp on it. I sure do miss that store with it's nice restaurant and cooking classes.... (sigh....)
  I will be back tomorrow with a new opportunity for winning a prize this coming week !
In the meantime - be good to yourself !!    Blessings ~  Barbara
