From The Kitchen Of.. & Pretty Pressings Sketch


Today i can show you a card made with my Cross Stitch Tilda... see how she looks now, compared to my "He said - She said card" ? :-)

This card is totally inspired by my children. Lucas is now in an age were he knows were the cookie jar is and when iam not arround he climbs up and gets his treats... sometimes i hear screaming because he can not come back down.. and other days i only notice because he and Niklas have a funny smile and chocolate around their mouths :-)

I used on this card the new Magnolia stamps (Heavenly Collection 2008) and the is chair from a previous line (i think it is from Shabby Chic 2008). I wanted it to look like Tilda is going to step on the chair to reach for the cookie jar. Except the polka dot paper (Making Memories) and the pearl stickers, everything on this card is from the Magnolia shop in Sweden. The sentiment is from a Stampin up set: "From the Kitchen of" combined with the Stampin up Tap punch.

My friend Nikki and Bernie have given me a fabuolous award :-) Thank you so much to both of you! Please say "HI" to Zoe! I love her new creations! Also.. did you see that Irina have some nice candy up on her blog??? CHECK IT OUT :-) Hopefully i see you tomorrow for the Cute card Thursday Challenge have a great day.

Yesterday when i "cleaned" up my labels of the blog i noticed that i havent posted a sketch for a long time.. so here is a sketch for you. Do you want to give it a try? You can add your sentiment anywere. Link your card here on this posting - i will show my card on Saturday after CCT and FS Challenge.

Hi Claudia
Love all your creations and this one is wonderful. Those papers from Magnolia are great too, but they aren't in the english shop, what's a pity :)
