(Not) A Bun in the Oven

I drove to Kansas City today for work this week. I'm not sure if there was an 80s flashback on every radio station this weekend or if the recession is really hitting the midwestern radio stations, but jeez, there were more 80s tunes than back in the 1980s! I heard Berlin's "Take My Breath Away" 4 times this afternoon (yes, really). Kind of made me feel like I was in a Top Gun marathon...except I was looking at Iowa countryside instead of Tom Cruise....and I wasn't going as fast.

But now I'm ready for my marathon meetings the next few days. Hopefully I'll be able to sneak in a trip to a local scrapbook store one evening! :) If anyone knows of any in the KC metro, please let me know.

I made the card below using the Plus One Lawn Fawn stamps. And no, I am NOT pregnant, but I thought the little bun in the oven was so adorable I had to use it! I'm entering it in the Lawnscaping/Wee Memories Cute and Cuddly Challenge. Anyhoo, here's today's card:

I used Crate "Neighborhood" and "Restoration" patterned the pink and grey together. The May Arts ruffle ribbon looked kitchen-like to me. I added some Doodlebug jewels to the oven knobs...I think it pulls the yellow together. Here's a close-up of the cute little oven:

We actually used this expression to tell my in-laws about my first child. We put a hamburger bun in the oven and pointed it out...they didn't get it (they called it a roll). After about 10 minutes, they finally understood what we were trying to tell them. Wish I had had these stamps back then!

Thanks so much for looking. Your comments make my day!
