What's Cookin'

It's Monday...happy, happy, joy, joy! (Is the sarcasm seeping out of that?)  I do NOT like Mondays. Just sayin'.  My Sunday was filled with cleaning and Laundry....I have hardly been home lately and you can tell by looking at my home! Life doesn't seem like it's going to calm down any in the upcoming month either.  I need a stay-vacation. A week of just being at home.  Afterschool today I promised my daugther we would go swimming..she wanted to soooooo badly yesterday but there just wasn't enough hours in the day. So that's my big plan for the day - swimming!  Sorry all you in other parts of the country...but's been super gorgeous here in South Florida and the water is so nice and warm! The other day, it was actually almost too warm...didn't really cool us off but was still refreshing!

On to the card (I find I'm saying this alot lately...I guess it's my "thing" sorry you have to deal with my "thing".)  Over at CMC we want you to color (using your copics of course) metals.  Mo' Manning had this Fabulous little girl for a buck right after the Tsunami in Japen and had all the proceeds go to the disaster. So of course I snatched her up. She is just toooooo adorable. I love baking and cooking, so this was a no-brainer for me.

I know I could have used something a bit bigger to show off the metals...but they are cute pots! ;-) Everything is colored with Copic markers. I paperpieced her apron and then added copics on top of it to give it some depth. The oval is cut with a spellbinder and I used a Martha Border punch for to create the matte around the oval. The spatcula charm I believe is from Karen Foster. Not sure where the sentment came from...but I like it!  Here are those FAB papers from MME again. I think I need to buy some more pads! I can't stop using them. They are my current go to papers. Perfect for paper piecing too because the patterns are so small. Love them. The pearls were originally white and I colored those with my Copics too.

Come on over to the CMC site and join us in the challenge.  I also have BLOG CANDY - ends April 30th

Oh my GOSH!! Love your apron!! Your shading of the folds and pleats is just AMAZING. Such a cute design with the little punch border (was that hard to do?) and the little spatula charm. I still haven't had the chance to use this sweet image yet!! Love her!!
