Kitchen Memories

It's beginning to get really cold here, 
and we are to have "lake effect" snow by Thursday.
A good time to stay inside and create, which is what I have been doing a lot of!!
I am feeling a bit "under the weather".
And I hardly ever get sick, but some nasty old bug has
grabbed a hold of me.....
I am trying so hard not to give into it..lol!!

I had so much fun working with the new 
"Kitchen Digital" sets Sandy from  Crafty Secrets has just released!
They are jam packed of wonderful stamp sets, images and papers....
all digital, all right at your finger tips so to speak!!

Because I am almost out of ink, I had to choose carefully what I printed
but luckily for me, I still had some of the gorgeous things printed
leftover from the potholder card I did  "HERE" a few days ago!

I decided to make a shaped card and came up with an apron.
I printed off the whisk, rolling pin, spatula, and potholder
all digital stamps that I just colored in as easy as can be!

I added a pocket, ruffle trim, rick rack, a tiny cookie cutter button
gingham ribbon, did some machine stitching, and I had a cute card,
I think this would make a wonderful Bridal shower card..

The sentiment is also part of the kitchen kits..I love it, as it is so true.
I have great memories of baking with my kids in my kitchen!

The sets I used, with a link are listed below.
Retro Kitchen Digital Kit (All my design papers came from this kit)

Aaaccckkk! This is so darn cute! You just pulled this out of your hat? Amazing! Hey, Diane, you wouldn't want to get caught in a blizzard with no printer ink, would you? Better stock up. Quite a cold spell hitting the country. Sorry to hear about your bug. I was doing the same thing -- fighting it off -- and it never got too bad. Hope you will fare as well.

This is so gorgeous...I love the choice of papers and embellishments. We're delighted that you joined our Challenge last week at Word Art Wednesday. We hope to see you again this week. Leaving you with God's Word in Hebrews 12:2, "Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." Have a blessed day.
