Okay so today begins a brand new challenge over at House Mouse and's hosted by our one and only Dorte!!  For her challenge theme Dorte has chosen "In the Kitchen"...I personally loved this choice as I have a friend who is in the final stages of her new kitchen so thought that I'd make her up a card to take over when the renos are done!!  As always you have the "Anything Goes" option!!  Our wonderful sponsors and prizes...

~ In The Kitchen ~
There are so many great stamps with Ellen's adorable

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
I decided to make an angled card...
DP is Magnolia...
the card opened...
this super cute mousey image is called "Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice" HMOR1089...
coloured with my copics...
matted over cheesecloth...something that one would find in a kitchen (more often then not it would be found in my craft room though)...
the letters are covered with Glossy Accents...

"New Kitchen" is computer generated...
the cups are made using a Memory Box die...
I embossed them using "Damask Heart" also by Memory Box and Rangers distressed Tea Dye Embossing Powder...
flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts...
and how cute is that pearl tea pot charm...
That's my "In the Kitchen" card done...just waiting for an invite to the newly renovated!!!  Now it's time for you to hop on over and check out the fabulous makes of my talented House Mouse and Friends teamies!!!
