Working in the Kitchen

Just finding stuff to put on cards though... Spend as little time in there as possible!
I'm late uploading today because I had a fabby day out with the family at Colchester Zoo so you can expect loads of piccies of cute animals tomorrow.
But today it's just me cards. I actually managed 5 kitchen cards but thought that was a bit much for the daring cards blog so just stuck up my faves!
Here they all are...
This one uses a QK cupcake die, some gorgeous BG Gypsy 6x6 papers, some doodlebug buttons and from the kitchen... real sugar attached with glossy accents
This one uses food colouring. The darker flowers are embossed images from Fontwerks Elsie Flannigan stamps which I painted and cut out. The lighter ones are punched out and doodled from a sheet with food colouring painted on it.
I was just wondering what paper backing to use when I spied this scrap of Christina Cole paper on my table - et viola!
I could not get a good picture of this one - it is not blurry in real life I promise! QK cow (lovely when done pain to make), with cocktail stick fence and some awesome cow ribbon from a US ribbon club I have used which has just ceased trading. :( I do probably have enough ribbon (that's 3 embroidery boxes full plus a bit more) but I still get upset when I have to use any!
More QK, plus some scraps of paper. And the kitchen item is the clean foil from inside a margarine tub!
The last card uses a tea bag (doh!) and some old Self Addressed kit papers. (Sadly sold out so you can't get them from the shop. They do sell off all the old tock at a bargain price so have a look at Scraps and Bits)I managed to lose these papers and they were one of my faves - I'd only cut one flower from one sheet. The wonderful daring cardmaker that is Bondgirl, sent me her unused pack which means I will love her forever.

They're all great again Lythan, esp the teabag and the cow. Bet I'd end up licking the sugar off the sugary one.
