Kay’s Blog Week Takeover – Day 3

Sitting in our kitchen. Like most people my age, there are a few other places I’d like to be. Like riding a roller coaster, attempting to train a scorpion to sit, etc… But it’s okay, because I’m writing this blog post, which makes the kitchen more exciting! It almost makes me feel poetic.

Ode To Kitchen:
The sound of a Wii game in the other room
Colin is playing, his racecar goes “ZOOM!”
I sit at my laptop, the blog post and I –
But as dinner is cooking, I will soon say “BYE!”

On another note, the latest card that I’ve created is not as cute as the others, but has rhinestones. So I’m sure that you’ll forgive me. Anyway, here it is!

Kay 3
Supplies: Scraps of Mum's papers; Green card; 12 green rhinestones from Hero Arts; Corner rounder; Hero Arts “Thinking Of You” stamp

See? It’s a good card. Decent, or as mum phrased it “a good card for a guy." It’s also pretty simple to make. (Aren’t they all?) I started with cutting my dark green paper into three 1 1/4” X 2 1/2” pieces and adhering them to the paper. Then I cut my brown strips so 5” X 1/4” and adhered them. Finally, I cut a piece of white paper, stamped it with my greeting, rounded the corners, and pop-dotted it to the card. This, my friends, is a fabulous way to use up yummy scraps of papers.

Oh, and just add rhinestones 🙂

Kay’s Daily Words of Wisdom: Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

Off to train my scorpion,


(PS from Mum: There is no scorpion. 🙂

  1. There should always be a scorpion…well as long as he’s trained. You are a very talented and funny young lady!

  2. You have a knack for blogging and crafting…. (Glad there is no scorpion!) Being a New Yorker: the idea of one freaks me out…

  3. That is a really pretty use of rhinestones. The cork is a real polar opposite to the glitz of jewel. Thanks for the idea.

  4. Love your poem “Ode to Kitchen” Great job on your “Guy” card, I always struggle with these. thanks for sharing

  5. you are so talented, Kay!! love your pome! would love to know if you did trained the scorpion to sit… =) i love the unique design on your card! wonderful post!! thanks for sharing!

  6. Wonderful design, Kay! And… you are too funny! I’m sure there’s always lots of laughter when you’re around. 🙂

  7. I am using your words of wisdom from today…perhaps it will become my motto! perhaps my mantra! Regardless I will use it….OFTEN! LOVE this card and its oh so skillful use of leftover scraps (note to self: use up leftover scraps BEFORE cutting up new paper! You know you have them!). Thanks for the great ideas!

  8. You are just too darn cute! I am really enjoying your posts. I’ve gotten behind as life has gotten in the way this week. Now I’m catching up. I really like this card, simple but beautiful! Great job!

  9. I am showing my age, but the “Thinking of you” card” reminds me of the old fashioned trunks. You could do it in browns and blacks, add a cardstock or metal “clasp” and or handle, and make a truck, suitcase or even a treasure chest. Now if I can think of cute words to add.
