In the Kitchen with Edna from Rubbernecker Stamps

I just love the older characters from Rubbernecker Stamps, and Edna in particular as she reminds me of my grandma.

You can grab Edna in the Kitchen here and the Sentiment here





  I colored her with my Pro-Markers and Copic Markers.   

Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Blush, Baby Pink, E71, E74 and then paper pieced her robe as I felt she needed an older style robe like my Grandmother (who is 85) would wear.


Hope you enjoyed her!

This week we get to share our creative spaces.    Mine is currently undergoing a huge destash, however I will share the parts that are not a disaster. 

I am lucky to have our second bedroom as my craft room and office (because I work from home).  I have to have everything I use most in sight and at easy reach.   I love watching movies on my iPad and absolutely love my little mini cube units for storage.





As soon as I finish my room redo I will post an update!\

ADOPT card from The Cutting Cafe

Be sure to visit the Cutting Cafe Blog on the 7th and the 21st of every month for our design teams inspirational post in which by leaving a comment you will be entered into a drawing to win 3 free sets of your choice from the online store.  

Now on to this week’s inspiration!

This week we got to choose anything from the shop.  So of course I went for pet related.   I chose the ADOPT word card file.  We adopted our fur baby Toby when he was 3 months old and he will be 8 in June.  I work from home and anytime I run an errand, bank etc, where I can stay in the car I let him ride with.   I honestly can not imaging us not having him.    

Grab your file here.

Below is my card, I loved using the dog themed buttons and ribbon to embellish the card.




And of course can not have a ADOPT post without sharing Toby too.  





See you soon!
