Wind and Kitchens Don't Mix


Happy Thursday my stamping friends! Here on the east coast we've been having some pretty windy days, 40-60 mph gusts. We awoke Tuesday morning to Jack's playhouse down the hill and in pieces with some of them cracked and a chunk of shingles off our kitchen roof gone! Aagghh! As I am typing this I hear the wind picking up and starting to howl again. Oh boy! Wish us luck!


In honor of my kitchen roof needing attention in the near future, I decided to pull out my Perfect Mix stamp set for this week's sketch challenge. There is something about fussy cutting that is calming to me. As I was fussy cutting out the mixer, bowl, and spatula inspiration struck! I used my xacto knife to cut a slit in the batter for the beaters to go down into so they are actually in the batter! I took my color choices directly from the A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper that I used. Smoky Slate, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, along with a small dabble of Sahara Sand and Blushing Bride worked hand in hand to create this fun card. Thanks for stopping by today! Please make sure you hop on over to Create with Connie and Mary to see the other fabulous designers' creations! Happy Stamping!
