Keesh's Inspiration Challenge # 11

This is my second week with Keesh as her Guest DT and I just wanted to thank everyone for their wonderful comments of support. The blogging community is an amazing one - I just wish I could spend the hours commenting on blogs that everyone deserves! I think my family would complain a little though if I forgot to feed them - LOL.

And that segways nicely into Keesh's Inspiration picture this week - a gorgeous kitchen in muted browns and clean whites. I think I would almost enjoy the daily chore of cooking dinner in this beautiful space - but it wouldn't look this tidy for long - LOL.


I've chosen to use the Hostess set Window Dressing for my card - to mirror the glass doors of the kitchen cupboards. I also chose to use one of the SU Chef's menu selections from Voila - much more suited to a kitchen window! It's also one of the fabulous things about SU sets - the way you can mix and match!

Another example of mixing and matching comes from Annette from My Pommie Purple Patch. She made a wonderful Shoebox Swap for our Stamp Camp using the Choo Choo set from the Spring Mini and the presents from Loads of Love Accesories to create a wonderful Santa Express Christmas card - check it out here.

I also want to take this opportunity to wish Keesh a speedy recovery from torn ligaments in her ankle - I always knew exercise was bad for you - LOL. At least her incentive trip next week will give her a chance to relax and heal properly...take care and ENJOY!!!

What a great card Debbie! Your little window is so cute!
Who says the family needs to eat? We need to stamp huh? It is just an addiction! I have set up a study for my crafting where my hubby comes and sits there at my desk and chats while I color and create! Works pretty well. ha ha!

Very nice! The colorful wine, cheese and fruit make the neutral colors pop! I wish I could "pop" by and enjoy that repast with you!

See, the possibility of injury is exactly why I don't exercise! LOL
