DH's Bday Kitchen

DH's Bday is today! He's been really interested in the Food Network on TV lately and trying out some new cooking techniques (yeah me!). He even asked for a kitchen gadget for his bday and of course, I bought it for him. So, I thought this called for a cooking kinda card. I had some huge ideas for this kitchen but was making it soooo complicated. Then while searching for some inspiration in Microsoft clipart (search for kitchens) I came across one that was just perfect and here is my version.

Another apology - my DH decided to hang dry wall over the unfinished walls in our basement to make it nicer for me down there but that means I had to move my light box again. OH NO! Another week of bad pics coming again!

The "counter" was a piece cut from my Cricut and then I trimmed the sides and top off. I also trimmed that point in the middle so it was shorter. The cabinets are hand drawn.

What a great card! My DH does most of the cooking around here so that would be a good card for me to make for his BD.

Michelle this is amazing!!! I love the kitchen and the way Billy is incorporated into it! Wow, wow! Those cabinets though actually look like they would open!! They have so much dimension!

I have a question for you. What kind of light box do you use? i am in the market for one and I want to make sure I get a good one!
