And the new stamp is...... "Cookie Bugg"!

I had asked Christy Croll (Tiddly Ink) to create a cookie bugg because I had just gotten this cookie box die and thought I needed a cute stamp to go with.  PERFECT!!!  Isn't she the cutest?!  She also had the background paper (what the top is cut out of) and a glass of milk and a few other things.  VERY, VERY CUTE!!!

I am going to list both of the following on the MAKE A GIFT  challenge as well...because they both are!

Well today's little mess up... see the bug on the top photo?  She's dressed in brown...not a very good least, not good enough for the topper below.  It was too reddish... seee...UGH!!!  But ya know... I had already printed her and cut her out...BY HAND!!! So that baby got glued down!

WELL, I have a bit of a perfectionist in me that could NOT stand that it really didn't match...So, I got to thinking that I needed to take advantage of the digital functionality I get so excited about... I would just take a digital version of her and digitally "paste" it onto the picture above.  I did that and it looked awful!  I couldn't get it to fit exactly right over the one already there..???... so then I had a brain storm, don't replace the girl, replace the dress/hat and shoes...(DUH!)  So I did.... here ya go,  my hybrid...

Yes, I know, that works for showing you...but the real one still has the ugly brown dress.  NO MATTER!  I'm not giving it to anyone anyway.... the cookie mix was about a year old...and terrible!  No one will be getting these cookies!

It was a good lesson learned ... know what the end is going to look like before printing!  HoHumm....

OH!  one more thing... if you look  very closely you'll see that the glass is "transparent"... I know, I've pointed that out with the wings before but I JUST LOVE THAT!!!  But, silly me, after going to all that trouble, I glued the bugg down over most of it!   The one little twist to it was that I had to actually print it so that you could see the cookies behind it...And, because I did that I had to take an xacto knife and cut slits on either side of the milk to run the ribbon behind the isn't really layered the way it appears.

Actually, I'll just show you this way...

ONE MORE THING! (again)  I know you think I am misspelling bugg, but that's how Christy spells it, and it's her bugg!  (All the other misspelled words are my bad!...we need SPELL CHECKER!!!  HELLOOOO)

    I liked her dress brown as well as the blue Nancy, you need to learn not to be so hard on yourself.

    OU! Too old to think about changing that now! Nope, gotta be right! Isn't that weird... I really put litter or no effort into the card part, I just throw that part together ... but I want to get that digital stuff RIGHT! ???
