Baking With Love!





Happy Monday everyone! Here's to another week right? This week is superbly busy for me and on Friday I have yucky jury duty (oh how I am praying it gets cancelled--can you pray for me too, pleaseeee!). On Saturday I am going to teach a Copics class at a blogger friend's house--she lives 20 minutes away and there will be a couple of others there who have blogs too (isn't the stamping world small when ya think about it) We're going to color our hearts out and hopefully they will be able to take something away from it all. BTW, I heard from quite a few of you who are also New Kids on The Block fans---I knew there were some of ya out there too, lol!


Ok, onto the card peoples!!! I bought this kitchen stamp quite awhile ago, but I did some research for you inquiring minds and I finally found it online again. It's from The Stampin' Place and you can buy it mounted or unmounted there. I had been holding onto to it, waiting for the right time to use it and when these new Magnolias came out I knew they would be perfect together. This is "Cowberry Muffin" Tilda--isn't she a cutie pie? You can purchase her from Diana Crick at magnolia.us@shaw.ca (NOTE: the Tilda in the leaves I bought awhile ago from overseas, Diana does not carry that particular stamp)


I will not lie to you, this card took awhile to do. Not difficult, just time consuming to color everything, cut things and such. I added diamond glaze to the window and a few of the pots/jars for a nice realistic shine. I cut Tilda out and paper pieced her apron with this dp from SU called "Bella Rose"--love it cuz' ya know red is my most FAVORITE color! The muffin was also cut out and popped up w/ dimensionals too. I didn't have the right sentiment stamp (gasp...how can that be possible right?) so I printed "Baked With Love" directly onto the dp and then cut out with my Nestabilities tag die. Diana's webshop is going to sell ribbon with sentiments on it and I cannot wait--how cool is that! The little measuring spoon charm is from Karen Foster and came in a pack of 5 (spoons, spatula, cookie jar, muffin pan, & rolling pin). And because I love you guys so much, I went and found where you can get them--right HERE--they have all different kinds if you're interested (and yes I bought bunches, lol)!! I'm only here to enable you all dontcha' know--hee hee!


Well, that's it for me today. I have lots of errands to run including taking 2 of my cats to the vet and then kids to shuttle around--ya know the daily chores, ha ha! BTW, tomorrow night Verve Stamps is having their new stamp release party at 8 pm (EST)--you MIGHT want to check out their blog today for some sneak peeks (hint, hint...you really need to check it out so get on over there...hint, hint). You know how I love me my Verve stamp sets!


See Ya--

Suzanne

    Your card is not only "baked with love", it's also "handcrafted with love". The embellishments, the papers and the way you colored the kitchen scene, is FANTASTIC. I just love it!
