For the Forty-Second Edition of Creative Tuesdays-- Kitchen --!!

For this week's Creative Tuesdays, the theme is "Kitchen." I've been drawing like a madwoman and making new cards for a Festival this upcoming Saturday in which I am selling cards.

So, I made sure to also create a card that would for sure fit the theme for "Creative Tuesdays" this week. I had lots of fun drawing and coloring this one, and it was a neat challenge trying to come up with a quirky way to interpret the theme.

I haven't yet decided what the caption for this card will be, or whether I should caption it at all. "Punny" sayings are what I generally go for when I write the greetings inside. That said, sometimes people prefer blank cards for personalization purposes, so I make those too. But C.T.-ers, if you have any suggestions for something to be written inside here, please, let me know!

In any event, this is a Kitchen and Breakfast scene. Mom has curled her hair, sat down to relax, wait for her hair to set, and to caffeinate/read the paper in the interim. Daughter decided to make breakfast, and for unknown reasons, balance the plate of food on her head. Maybe she has dreams of modeling, and didn't have a book around to practice with?

In any case,the two are happy and amused by one another. But both appear to be unaware of the sudsy water overflowing from the dishes in the sink getting washed-- even the little girl missed this, despite the fact that some of the bubbles ended up in her hair.

So now, without further ado, here are some links!

To submit to Creative Tuesdays for this week, please go to:

To see other cards of mine about family and friendship that I've made, please go to:

And last, but not least-- for anyone who may live in or be near the L.A. area, here are the links for the aforementioned festival for this Saturday that I'm making cards to sell. It will have lots of fun things, like art, food music, and an emphasis on biking/public transit/not using cars as much so we can save the environment:




And that, as they say, is that. Happy Tuesday, and Happy Creating, Everybody!

Oh donna, i woudl love to go to that festival and see some of your other cards in person. I'm really flattered you;d take time for us all to do this entry in fact. GREAT addition and, yes, quirky but so was you ideal coffee break too. I still remember it well. It is so you. Love that. TY for doing this.

Best of luck to you at that festival.

I need to do that one of these days. Do you sell originals or prints of cards? both woudl be good I'm sure. BTw, I like blank cards the best myself--more variety on how to use them that way and more likely for me to buy too than trying to find not only a great image card but one that says just the right thing.
