MFP Oct Blog Hop Day 4 - Ginger Cookies

Hello! Welcome to the October 2011 MFP New Releases Blog Hop!

This month's new releases are: Holly Greetings, Christmas in the Country, Snowball?, Country Thanksgiving, Cardinals in Winter, and Ginger Cookies.For your convenience, all these sets are available TODAY at Mark's Finest Papers.

So, do you want to WIN today's Featured Stamp Set: Ginger Cookies? (If you don't want to wait to win, you can always purchase the sets right away! We'll substitute a set from NEXT month's release if today's winner has already purchased this set!)

For your chance to win: Comment on the following Design Team members' blogs TODAY before midnight EDT. There will be ONE random winner chosen from the comments on today's Blog Hop blogs. That winner will win Ginger Cookies. We will announce the winner's name on tomorrow's MFP blog post.



For this I altered a notepad so I could give it to someone to keep a list of recipes or menu ideas for the holidays.  I stamped the image in espress on vanilla then colored with copics, cut it out and popped it up on dimensionals.  I tied some ribbon through the spiral rings.



This is for today's FREE 4 ALL CHALLENGE # 86 - Cards With Character. Well the character that this was made for is certainly a card. My FIL is such a dear and even though he is a diabetic and watches what he eats he still loves his sweets so I always make him something with Splendar instead of sugar in it. This will be his Christmas card this year. I hope he likes it.
This is also for today's QUEEN FOR THE DAY CHALLENGE # 82 - Joan who is such a sweet heart. I always enjoy seeing her uploads and reading her comments she leaves me. I chose to CASE her GINGERBREAD COOKIES.
I changed the colors, layout and left off a recipe although I love how she did hers.
I used pink icing and hot pink gems for Thursday's WAYS TO USE IT CHALLENGE # 344 - Pink, Pink, Pink since I did not get to play yesturday and my layout is from Wednesday's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 354.
My dp is from years ago and I do not even know how many years or where it came from. I used some ribbon and "V"'d the end for panel 3. I stamped this darling image which is from a just released acrylic set called 'GINGER COOKIES" from MARKS FINEST PAPERS in esspresso ink then colored with copics cut it out and popped it up.
Hope you like it and have a fabulous Friday.
RECIPE:
Stamps: Ginger Cookies - MFP
