Stepping Back into the Kitchen

I couldn’t hardly wait to share the news with you, my readers, today…. I’m stepping back into the kitchen and rejoining the Kitchen Sink Stamps design team!  Kitchen Sink Stamps was my very first design opportunity, and (little known fact!) I was actually the very first KSS customer!  I logged onto Splitcoaststampers one morning in September 2007 and was intrigued by a new stamp company I saw in a banner ad.  Went to the website, was further intrigued and placed an order.  So I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for KSS and the wonderful owner Maria Colosimo.  She told me long ago there’d always be a place for me in her kitchen, so I happily decided to come back!
So, enough chit-chat… it’s time to get down to business with Kitchen Sink Monday!  The card I have to share with you today is right in season, I think!  I sent this recently to a lovely lady from our church who was celebrating her 80th birthday.

I used the Multi-Step Berries stamp set for this card, and some Pebbles “Walnut Grove” papers.  My berries were stamped with Memento Love Bug, Rhubarb Stalk and Grape Jelly inks, and the leaves were done with Memento Pear Tart, Bamboo Leaves and Olive Grove.
Be sure to visit the other girls in the Kitchen today and see their creations!  (I’m SO happy to be back with these beautiful ladies!)

And be sure to stay tuned, as *NEW* Kitchen Sink Stamps are on the way later this month!  I’ve already gotten two sets inky, and you’re going to LOVE these stamps!  Want a little peek?  Here you go!

Hmmm… what COULD that be?
Happy Monday!  Have a great week, and thanks for stopping by!
