Baked With Love

I can't believe it is August 1st already - where has the summer gone!?! 
The first of the month means it is time for a new challenge - whoo hooo!! 

This month is all about "My Favourite Things". I have chosen to use "Mildred" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. 

Sweets are one of my favourite things! For me there is nothing like walking in to a house where there is the smell of something baking in the oven...like fresh apple pie, chocolate cake or chocolate chip cookies....... Mildred reminds me of walking in to the house when Grandma or Mom are baking something fresh... I can smell it now. 
Of course, there is always that one special ingredient that only a Mom or Grandma can put into something they are baking......it is that special touch of love.....no one can ever reproduce that taste right?!?  

I started by colouring my stamp with alcohol markers and cutting it out with a stitched rectangle die. I used some new vintage marker colours I recently added to my marker "collection" - it was fun to use some different colours! 
Some fun vintage feel paper from Kaisercraft was perfect for my layout. The sentiment was created on my computer. Some ribbon and a ribbon bow, a fun rolling pin and some of my fav embellishments - gumdrops finish off my card.
