So what's cookin'  this fine mornin'??


I am so excited to embark on my scrapping project for this week, but before I get ready to start clicking, I took some time to play with my brand spankin' new "Kiss the Cook" stamp set from Hanna Stamps.  I cannot cook to save my life but I can definitely try to make a mean card! :)

(I'm totally kidding about my culinary skills, btw.) Well, sort of..actually I have this thing where anything I actually want to cook has to be this whole elaborate affair - I will happily stand there and use every dish, every ingredient and 7 hours later voila!.. but whatever you do, don't ask me to make meatloaf because I will promptly give you this: Nobrain2 .. 'nuff said! Anyway, I'm trying to work on that, so I purchased Katie Joel's "The Comfort Table" cookbook and so far, I got some happy tummies at home!  (Actually, that reminds me, I've heard people rave about some cooking catalog called tastefully simple or something like that - If anyone knows a consultant, point them my way please!)

oops.. okay, back to stamping!!  I think Hanna looks very Retro in her cute little apron, so I went with that whole look for this card.  SO much fun!  The PP is from the now retired (sniff) SU! Ginger Blossoms DSP.  I paper-pieced her apron and colored her using my beloved Copics, and yes, she is in fact rocking blue eyeshadow!!  heaven :) 


I'm not sure what possessed me to use these colors and if anyone feels it's a hideous combination, let me know - for some reason, I thought they totally worked in a funky 50's sort of way, but maybe I'm just tacky that way :) lol..

I used my "Autumn Type" cuttlebug embossing folder on the chocolate background, and I know you can't really see it in the picture, but I added some Pearl-Ex powder onto the embossed lettering and it looks delish I tell ya!

Makes me wanna cook...almost.  Just for the smooches alone!

Hope you have a yummy Monday!  Thanks for checking in!
