Hostess with the Mostess!

Hi Everyone,

This is my last month as a DT member of the Splitcoast Dirty Dozen - what an amazing 6 months its been - it really has gone by so fast! I kept thinking that February was my last month and was getting sad that it was almost over - SO you can imagine my total surprise when I found out that it was actually this month!!!  Math was never my strong suit! I couldn't quite believe it when Lydia asked me to join - and now I can't believe that its my last month there :( - how fast time flies!

Each month SCS has a challenge theme that the DT creates cards for (you can check them all out as a fan member of SCS) and also everyone can participate in the challenge. This month's theme is "Dirty Laundry"! You can interpret that in so many ways - from clothesline images, to what colors are in your laundry basket right now, etc. For my card today - I chose the sweet little apron stamp from the What's Cookin'? stamp set paper pieced from the Pebbles (Walnut Grove 6x6 paper pad ) from  Taylored Expressions. I usually wear an apron when I am cooking because I am definitely a messy cook :) and almost always something gets on my clothes - so for the Dirty Laundry theme - I thought about using something that gets dirty when I cook - but keeps me clean ;)

I kept the layout pretty simple and paper pieced the whole apron with yellow cardstock and then paper-pieced the bottom of the apron with the DP and then popped up the pocket stamp (which is colored with copics) over the floral pattern - and then snuck in the spatula stamp into one of the pockets :) I added some scallops on the top and then one on the side and added some lines of ribbon with a little flower in the center. Here is a more of a close up of the card:

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: What's Cookin'? stamp set from Taylored Expressions
Paper: Walnut Grove (6x6) from Pebbles and Snow White Cardstock from TE
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and Teal Zeal
Accessories: Banner Stacklet dies from Taylored Expressions, EK Success scallop border punch, red satin ribbon (thin), Fairytale Rose, Waterfall stickles, copics and dimensionals

I loved creating this card - it was so much fun to stamp and paper piece and get some fun stamp therapy in! This week has been exceptionally busy and I am so happy that I got a little relaxation in my crafty corner :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
Big hugs!
Sankari :)
