S2G Blog Hop!

Welcome to the 1st S2G Members Blog Hop sponsored by Shirley's2Girls! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at the S2G Challenge Blog. Hopefully, you have arrived here from Tiffany's blog, if not, join in the fun and start from the beginning.
My card uses the adorable Mouse and Cookies stamp from Shirley's 2 Girls. I actually bought this one because it made me think of my husband, he loves cookies more than just about anything. In fact as I was posting my pictures he noticed there were cookies in the jar and he kept asking where the cookies were. The image is great to go with holiday baking gifts. I stamped the image and then colored it with Copic and Prisma markers. the tray and cookies were stamped twice and then I cut one out and then layered it with some thin foam tape. The scalloped circle behind the image was punched out with a Marvy punch and then I used white dimensional paint to mimic the look of an iced cookie. 
For the holidays, I will actually bake cookies to fill my jars. I used the same image and supplies for my cookie jar. The cookie paper is from Hobby Lobby, the card stocks are from DCWV and the ribbon and rick-rac are both from Jo-Ann's. Here is a picture of the gift jar with the card together:
How about a prize? In addition to the fabulous eye candy, we have decided to hide a prize somewhere along the hop! One pre-selected blogger will draw a random winner from the comments on her post, and the winner will receive a free stamp from Shirley’s2Girls. The fun part is...we're not telling you who it is! So as you hop, make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!! We will announce the winner on Monday in the SNR S2G Forum.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to Charlene
