Project Parade - Day 11

Hi everyone, it's Michelle! Have you all been enjoying all the Diva's Egg-stra special projects so far??? I sure have!

CHECK OUT THIS COOKIE! Yep, that's a cookie. I was at my local bakery a couple weeks ago buying my DH's birthday cake and hanging from a wire were dozens of these Spring/Easter cookies. The more I stared at them, the more I realized they were a PERFECT match for the new flower designs in this month's sets!! Even down to the flower pot. So, how could I resist? LOL!

For my projects, I used my FAV new set, Miracles Bloom. I colored the blooms and pot to match the colors in the cookie using Copic Markers then painted with Angel Wings Shimmerz. The paper from DCWV Citrus Pack had the perfect colors and I used a piece of Tangering Tango with a kraft base.

This card is 5 1/4" square and I used a variety of Nestabilities dies to create a recessed kind of a look. Both blooms, the pot and the frameare popped up on dimensionals. The sentiment is from Chocolate Bunnies and is stamped on the matching yellow DP. I then stamped another bloom at the end and colored it to match the main image. The ribbon is Persimmon craft seam binding by Martha Stewart.

I also made a tag to match for the cookie! These are so super easy to make and they pack quite a punch! I just trimmed around the stamped sentiment with a bit of room at the top and bottom, then punched the top with my SU Tag punch. Add a bit of sponging, some scraps from the card and done!

I would love to say that this cute ensemble went to my son's preschool teacher, like it was intended. BUT... I totally lost control and took a huge bite from the cookie the other night (what can I say?). Have to tell you, it wasn't as good as it looked. I gave the rest to the boys as a special after dinner treat! Of course they LOVED it!! They said it was the BEST COOKIE EVER! I think it sure is the VERVIEST cookie ever.

So do you want some new Verve??? Play along with us during our Project Parade for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the Verve Stamps store. All you have to do is create an Egg-stra special spring project or card and link it up with the Mr. Linky form HERE. Entries will close at 8PM Mountain on Saturday, April 4! Verve Stamps are not required, but we do LOVE to see 'em if you've got 'em!

And to put a little spring in your step, we'll be picking five random commenters over the course of the parade who will win their choice of any Verve Stamps set. There are still a few winner left to choose...You never know which Diva will be drawing, so if you see a project you like, be sure to leave the girls some love! :) Good luck and thanks for stopping by!!
