I used a new stamp set called SWEET ESCAPE.  It has fun images that revolves around places people live and has a "missing you" theme.  I also used a new gift tag die called GIFT TAGS 3.  It's a slightly different version from our other tag dies.

I colored the stamped image (all one stamp) with Copic markers, then I die cut the tag over the image.  The tag and two clouds are popped up for dimension.  I used our Debonair stamp set for the gingham print along the left side and some clouds dies (Clouds dies and Cute Clouds dies).  I used our Stitched dies along the edges of my white card stock mat.

In 2005, a fortune cookie company correctly foretold lottery numbers, resulting in 110 winners and an investigation.

Thank you SO MUCH for joining us!
