Meet In the Kitchen Gal

Whooo-hooo!! Yippeee!! Modern Sugar Blvd is now open for business. Please, go grab yourself a nice glass of iced tea or whatever your favorite beverage is 'cause you're gonna be at the computer awhile! Peruse the pages of Modern Sugar Blvd's store and blog. Visit the Sugars blogs (all listed in my sidebar) and leave them some love 'cause they've been working really hard to make our Sugar Momma's, Candie and Amy, very proud.

Without futher adieu, meet In the Kitchen Gal....

So when I received this digi-stamp in my email box I immediately thought of my Dad. I remember when I was little my Dad singing an old Hank Williams song "hey good' lookin'... what'cha got cookin'... how's about cookin' something up with me." So while she's checking her look in her pan, my Dad gave me the perfect sentiment for this card. The second thing I thought was "where the heck did I put the paper with macaroni and cheese on it." Isn't this paper fabulous?! I just love it!

I colored her with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. The tricky part was the pan. I colored it with a Versamarker and then added silver embossing powder. But of course, I lost the lines of the image, so I inked those back in with a black fine liner Sharpie. The sentiment I created using MSWord - Word Art. I selected a curvy shape, using a font I got from a website called - great fonts and they're FREE.

OK - have fun shopping! Have fun visiting all the blogs. For today's releases visit Crystal, Anita, Michele, Dee, Mandy, Tenia, Wendy and Sue. Stay close, too, because there are releases happening every day this week.

Stay sweet.
