The theme of the challenge this week at Stamps R Us is "In the Kitchen", and it's sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps.  Jodie has some fun, whimsical images as well as pertinent sentiments that are just as fun.   I couldn't decide which to choose from, so I made 2 cards.

For this first one, I used JJ's Cook image, which comes with the sentiment used here.  I colored her with Copics and added some glossy accents to the wine glass and her spectacles. I found this great digital paper at Bearly Mine Designs. I couldn't believe the selection of wonderful digital papers she has - and I didn't finish looking. Anyway ... I loved this cherry paper on top of the red gingham. So 'kitchen-y'. I added a ribbon and some rhinestones to finish things off.

My second card was made with Bugaboo's Crabby Cathy's Dishes image.  If this isn't the truth, I don't know what is.  Everyone wants to lounge around the table after dinner here at my house talking about their day until I get up to clean up, then everyone all of a sudden has chores or a phone call to return or a facebook account to check, lol.  I colored her with Copics and added some glossy accents to the bubbles and water drip.  I colored the pearls with E08 Copic to match the layout.  Finished with some brown bakers twine.

Head on over to Stamps R Us to see more details on the challenge - it runs for 2 weeks, so get your card in by March 21st to be eligible for a randomly drawn prize, courtesy of Bugaboo Stamps.

Thanks for stopping by!

Dishes are one of the few chores I don't long as I don't have to do them more than once a week or so.
