CCEE1317 In The Kitchen

Kathy Bradley, for her last theme as hostess for April, chose In The Kitchen.

The challenge was:  make a card using food, appliances, a whole kitchen scene, utensils - anything that can be found in the kitchen.

Of course I used RED.  This cute pastry chef image reminds me so much of my darling granddaughter, Erin, who turns 16 next week.  She is the pastry baker in the family, and everything she makes is so yummy!  This will go to her with a check in it.

Be sure to join us, linking your card to our blog HERE.  Check out the rest of the members of the team while you are there.  See you next week!

CHF25 - Spring!

Our hostess this week is Cindy, who chose the theme - SPRING!

I made this card with a digi from Cornish Heritage Farms called "Floppy Bunny", and the sentiment came from the digi section of CHF too.

I sponged a doily in pink, painted my bunny, which I cut out and popped, and did the same with the words.

Please join us.  You just might win some fabulous images!  Be sure to link your card HERE.

Here's the card I made this morning in honor of Miss Ro (Robin) who is our Featured Stamper on SCS.  I changed her seahorse to a flower, and used my Fired Brick ink.

This is short and sweet......off to son Paul's for the double header Red Sox game, snacks, dinner, and cards.

Hope you are enjoying Spring wherever you are.  It's finally here!

Saturday Morning Inspiration

Our Inspiration Challenge today comes from a site called "My Deco". I chose this beautiful wallpaper for my background, and added three contrasting Memory Box Poppies in soft colors. I finished it off with a white bow. I hope you like it!
We had a wonderful week with two of our grands........Jake (13), and John (12) are cousins, and they enjoy all the same things.  John will eat anything, Jake is picky, but we survived mealtimes!!

They have the upstairs bedroom to themselves (32 feet long!!), and really love it for playing, reading, and watching movies.  The time flew by, and we loved havaing them, but when the house was ours again last night, we all breathed easier. 

Parenting is definitely for the YOUNG......and we sure are NOT!! Have a wonderful weekend, my friends.
