Cookin' Mama!!

Happy Thursday everyone! Almost the weekend--yay! Do any of you play video games with your kids (or perhaps alone, hee hee)? We have literally every gaming system made including the Wii, GameCube & the new XBox 360 and of course my kids love them. Every now & then I get sucked down to our rec room to play (against my will too) and end up playing for like 2 hours. I'm highly competitive so I must figure the game out & get to level #? before I can stop, lol! So the other night I was forced to play "LEGO Indiana Jones" and I had so much fun, hee hee, and I got way farther then my son (who was deemed my sidekick) so now everyone is mad at me & no one wants to play with me anymore :o( Can't figure out if its a blessing or not, bwahhhahhhhh, lol!! But I will say that I recommend a lil' video gamin' as a great stress reliever!!

Anywho...while making my card today the thought for my blog title "Cookin' Mama" came to me, and of course its a Wii game that we have that I hate, but is fun anyway! Just thought you should know that, hee hee!

For my card today, I used "Cowberry Muffin Tilda" and she's one of my faves---you can get her here at Magnolia-licious. I paired her up with this new DCWV "Nana's Kitchen" dp (and I got this stack wayyy before I made the vow of no more paper, lol---so no cyber smacking me). The layout is last week's SCS sketch which was a fun one! My lil sentiment is from PTI's new "Around & About Sentiments" which I love! I don't sew (I know how, but I don't like it at all) so I did some faux stitching around my card with my paper piercer and white gel pen--looks kinda real, huh?

Alright, no more random ramblings from me cuz' I've got a ton of work to do. The last week of every month is super busy for me because lots of stamp companies start their sneak peeks for the next month including SUINK & H&M Stamps! Make sure and check out my DT sistah's blogs from SUINK today for more sneak peeks---Tori, Janna and Kristen! H&M Stamps sneak peeks coming soon!



  1. love your card! Love that paper too. I HAD to have that paper PLUS all the other new releases by DCWV. I think it's funny that when a stamper decides to organize!!!! they 'discover' all the items they forget they bought because it had to be possessed and then makes a vow NEVER to get anymore till the 'stash' goes down.... I am betting that will be a hard 'promise to oneself' to keep! But if it's any consolation... you have a wonderful talent of putting everything together and part of making beautiful cards is owning the 'necessary' paper, embellies, stamps and all that wonderful equipment!

  2. Love your Tilda...and your coloring...and your dp! You always have such gorgeous creations! I'm off to find this paper too!

  3. love it really love it...great card as always


  4. This is so sweet, love the colors you used.

  7. My hubby is a video game addict! Can't live with out playing and I hate it as well. He is the same way and will play until he gets to a certain point. Sometimes I don't see him for hours! LOL!

    So I adore this card! I actually saw this paper at Michael's the other day and thought about picking it up! It works so well with this Magnolia stamp and you colored her in perfectly! Another stunning creation!
