A Bun In The Oven!

Card Measures 4.25 x 5.5



When I first saw this stamp set from SUink I immediately knew I wanted to make a card with this idea. It just cracked me up! Plus I always feel like a nice way to justify buying stamps is if they have a multipurpose. So this is a great Christmas set. But look! It can be used throughout the year for things like this. I will have something later this week that uses this set in a non-holiday way too.

I left the inside blank, I figured if I were sending this to someone a pic with a bun in the oven and a "congratulations" they likely know they are pregos...so 'nuff said! LOL!

Like the little bun that I drew? Can you hear the stamp companies beating down my door asking me to design stamp sets for them?! what? you don't hear anything? hmmm...me either! lol! My "bun" looks more like a muffin. Hey! there is a reason I use rubber stamps and don't hand draw my cards! LOL!

Well, I spent last evening cleaning up my craft room. Hopefully I can be somewhat more productive now. It was such a disaster! If I had put Maeve down in there, I think I would have lost her! LOL! But I won't make a New Year's resolution to try and keep it clean...that will just set me up for disappointment in a couple of weeks when it is a disaster again. ;) I don't like broken promises! Do you make resolutions?

Do you know that a year ago I was hardly stamping at all anymore? I had lost my enthusiasm and mojo. If you notice on my sidebar the blogaversary countdown is getting close to my big day. That is when Mary Jo (unknowingly) lit a fire under my stamping butt and I started a stamp blog. I said I would do her weekly sketch challenges with her. Eventually the whole blog thing starts to take on a life of its own...and I am happily stamping away again.

What do you want to do this 2009? (no resolutions though!)

love your story! Your card is too cute! I too thought of that when I first saw it, but haven't made one yet.

I really don't know what I want for 2009. I should think about it. Seeing where we have the stomach flu now, the first thing that comes to mind is to stay healthy.

Too cute Kerry

Peggy said...

This is such a cute idea. I love how the door opens. I would have never thought about the "bun in the oven".

I want to be more organized in general in 2009. Work, home and crafting...all disorganized right now.

Rachel Hope said...

What a Genius idea!!! Love it :D

Hmmmm, I really hope to start Saving money, but with so many awesome new stamps always available I do not see that happening! :D

Very cute, can you draw me some buns LOL!

I'm hoping to stamp more in 2009 and maybe learn to digi-scrap since I'm not doing the real thing anymore. Then again Snapfish has these neat little books that I can do online which are fairly easy.

I'm getting ready to do MJ's sketch right now, hope it's not a thought provoking one!

Cheryl said...

Love your Tilda card, Kerry! Her purple dress and shoes are beautiful!
Also enjoyed the rest of the post! You're an excellent writer! I want to keep my craft room neater in 2009! (Not likely to happen!)

MJ said...

This just ROCKS GF! I can not tell you how much I love it. I want to case it but I am sure it won't turn out as cute. FABULOUS! And by the way, I am so glad you did your blog cuz it is one of my favorites. I am sure there a many others out there who agree!

So cute! Love the little door (yes, and your adorable bun ;-)).

I used to make the same old resolutions - lose weight and exercise more. I don't bother any more because it just doesn't happen. I do set a goal of how many books to read and how many pages to scrap though.

Kristen said...

Hehehehe wicked cute card. Kerry if I owned a stamp com. I would let you draw for me. As far as new years resolutions, Well as always, I will be trying to lose weight (arrgghh).

Pia said...

So cute Kerry, you can draw for me anytime!

In 2009, I will lose weight, see my FRIENDS more, and be more patient! They are not resolutions, they are going to happen!
