What's Cookin' ??

Hello my friends.

It has been raining the last several days here
and I have been hunkered down in my craft room just creating away!!
What better way to spend a cool, rainy day, then creating, right??

Sandy is giving everyone that enters the challenge her "new"
Retro Kitchen collection.
OMGoodness, it is full of wonderful papers and images
that had "my name" written all over it....
It was love at first "print"...LOL!
It will make it's debut in the store October 20th...
so this is a bit of a "sneak peek" you might say...

I made a 6 x 6 potholder card...
After printing out my gorgeous papers,
I put the blue gingham one back in my printer and printed
the digital apron stamp on it ...pretty cool...hmmm?

ALL of the papers you see are from the Retro Kitchen collection.
Look at the red with the scallop it...I hand cut it for the trim!!

I took a little time and machine stitched my "potholder" to look like the real thing!!
Stickles was added to the apron for the cherries, a bit of bling to the flower trim.
I even added a ribbon "tab" for the potholder to hang..

You still have a bit of time to enter our Crafty Secrets October linky party
and get ALL the Retro Kitchen collection for free...just for entering...
you also have a chance to win a $40 gift certificate to the store!!
