Seeing Spots

Good morning! This week's challenge on Mo's Digital Challenge Blog is "I See Spots". You know me, I love dots of any kind so this was right up my alley. I love  this image by Mo, it reminds me of Samantha when she was little. She has always loved cooking and helping out in the kitchen, even more as she is getting older and can do more and more. I am sure this card will go to Samantha soon, so I used her favorite color, yellow. The image was colored with Copics, the papers, buttons and ribbon from my stash.


This is a picture of Samantha this past Christmas. Everyone got her cooking related things this year. She was pretty excited by all of her new gear that as soon as we were finished unwrapping gifts she was reorganizing a kitchen cabinet so she would have her own shelf in the kitchen. I gave her the cookbook she is holding because it is the book I learned how to cook from and two 6" chef's knives, one for my house when she is cooking here and another to keep at home when she cooks with her Mom. 

(P.S. And yes I asked her Mom before I gave a nine year old a real knife! I do ask if it is something that could potentially send a kid to the E.R. Samantha has been cooking for a long time and has been taught knife safety as well as general kitchen safety)

Samantha is just adorable and possibly a future Foodtv star! Love your card, how cute is that image and your coloring is always so perfect. The dots are perfect, I always love dots in the Spring and Summer, not sure why, they just say warm to me.
