Fun in the Kitchen

Good morning everyone.....hope you are having a great day!! I have been working in the yard and weeding flower beds. I'm afraid my house has been terribly neglected....maybe I will do a little dusting later this morning. Don't ya just hate it when the tops of the wood furniture turn white...LOL!!! Anyway....
I sooo love my new cuppie set....Taylored Expressions Cuppie in the Kitchen. I made this card for my DH since our anniversary is in a couple of weeks. I may have to make him a cherry pie to go along with the card!! I used Taylor's Sketch Challenge #114 for the layout....the image was colored with copics and sewing was done along the background edges on the Websters Pages paper. The twill tape, buttons and twine finish it off.

Stamps: Taylored Expressions Cuppie in the Kitchen
Paper: Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Prism Twilight Dark
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: Sewing Machine, Nestabilities, Buttons, Twine, Twill Tape, Dimensionals

This is the card I made Tuesday for the Color Challenge on Splitcoast. The colors were Real Red, Bermuda Bay, and Kraft. I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch for the layout and also made this for da Mudder's Teapot Tuesday Challenge. It seemed Trish Lafish got lost last week in the storm and she really wanted to get back to school so she could graduate in a few weeks. She needed food for fuel so she could swim through all those giant waves so I provided the spices...what's a seaweed salad without a little sea salt??? The Clear Dollar Stamps Vintage Spices image was colored with copics and mounted on two different Nesties layers. The button with twine, Cherry Go Round Red Ribbon, and a scalloped border finished it off.
