I was assigned to use the new Denim and Daisies stamp set. But ya'll know I just couldn't stop there.  Let's throw in three other new products along with it. I stamped the pocket and pocket details directly onto a white panel. I then created a slit with an Exacto knife so I could slip a tissue paper napkin and the fork and knife out of silver foil paper out of the Flatware dies.  The sentiment is from this month's TAM stamp set, Recipe For Success. And we have a cheery yellow flower from the Pocket dies. My button was glued down in a sec with Xyron's adhesive dots. Didn't even tie the thread, but rather let the adhesive hold everything in place for me. Gotta love a time saver.

Thanks for stopping by!
