What's cookin', chick?
One thing I love about blogger is the awesome dashboard that shows me a brief synopsis of posts on those gazillion blogs that I follow. I recently got some new Whiff of Joy stamps, including little Willow with her pot of chicken soup. Well, the lovely ladies over at the Whiff of Joy challenge blog posted a reminder that their challenge closes tonight. I had totally forgotten. Holy moly! How could I forget? The challenge this week was to use paper piecing, so I paper pieced her little apron. Thank goodness for my cutterbees, which allow pretty intricate work. I colored little Willow with my copics, added some flowers from the dollar store and Wild Orchid Crafts, wrestled with a darned bow for a while (I still can't get the hang of my bow easy. That sucker is a total misnomer), threw on some pearls and buttons, punched some paper, inked some edges, and voila! Well, it didn't all necessarily happen in that order, but I think you can figure it out. This card is for a dear friend of mine who is going through some rough times right now. Whenever I see cooking images, I think of her, because she loves to cook. Since I HATE cooking, I definitely don't think of me when I see any cooking or baking images. Well, unless I am thinking, "man, if I only looked that cute in an apron, it wouldn't matter if I couldn't cook."
