Cooking With Cricut Challenge #58

This week we have another great challenge at Cooking With Cricut.  The challenge is to create a project  with your cricut using a clock, cookies or cookie monster.  How fun is that!!!

I made this card using the Sentimentals cartridge for the hands and the George and Basic Shapes cartridge for the stars.  The cookie sheet is a piece of silver cardstock from AC Specialty.  I just cut a rectangle shape that would hold the six stars and then scored the ends to fold up.  The stars are made with ivory and pink cardstock from Colorbok.  I inked the edges with bronze to make the cookies have a "baked" look to them.  I then used some white Martha Stewart glitter on the tops to create the sugar on the cookies.  The hands were made with paper from The Paper Studio.  All other paper, along with the chocolate chip cookie and the "Yum" stickers are also from The Paper Studio.  I found this paper stack this past summer at Hobby Lobby and fell in love with it.  I knew I would have many uses for it.  It has all kinds of cute designed paper and solids to match.  The stack included the cutest stickers and alphabet.  

Now for the inside of the card.

I used the other half of the chocolate chip cookie sticker and created the sentiment on the computer.  Isn't it the perfect sentiment for this card.  "A well balanced diet is a COOKIE in both hands".  I believe it!!  

Please hop over to Cooking With Cricut and see all the wonderful projects the Design Team has created.  And most of all we want you to link up your project to this weeks challenge.  Yum! Yum!
