Hi there - just wanted to share a card I made for my neighbour. She asked if she could use some of our rhubarb and I obliged since I never get around to using it in time and we have a huge spread of it. She brought us a rhubarb pie and it was sooooo delicious!!

I've been really pressed for crafting time these days, so when I came across Mojo Monday's sketch #197 I couldn't resist since it was posted as a 'simple' sketch - I like simple these days!!

I decided to paper piece the apron, the pockets and the oven mit and ended up using pop dots to raise the image and raise the pockets for some added dimension. The twine is something new I recently picked up from Etsy along with a couple other goodies. I just had to add the pie image inside :)

Stamps: Hero Arts What's Cooking, CTMH For Every Occassion
Paper: Cosmo Cricket Togetherness dp
Ink: Tsukineko Brilliance in Coffee Bean, copics (spatula)
Accessories: Stampin Up Corduroy Button Summer Sun, The Twinery twine Peapod Green, corner rounder punch, white heart shaped brads from stash

This is gorgeous! I just love the colours and everything! Glad to hear that your rhubarb didn't go to waste - it just breaks my heart when I notice it all growing crazy in someone's year since I love it so much. :) Rhubarb pie is the best isn't it!?
