Food -- You Gotta Love This Challenge! for 3 Girl JAM

Today starts a new challenge on the 3 Girl JAM Challenge blog. The theme is a fun one!  Food! (and all things food related).  Here's what I created for a little inspiration on the challenge blog today:
I found this cook's apron card cutting file in the Silhouette Online Store and thought it would work perfectly for the challenge.  I used October Afternoon papers on the card to give it a retro feel.  
The tie around the neck?  3 Girl JAM jute string, of course!
Please join the food related challenge at 3 Girl JAM -- it goes all month!

I have a giveaway going on, celebrating several events: I wrote my 500th blog post this week, I just reached 400 followers on my blog, and I have over 100 "likes" on my Facebook page, Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.  To celebrate all those things,  I'm having a giveaway:  I have some Timeless Twine, some 3 Girl JAM ribbon, a Unity stamp set, a Close To My Heart stamp set, some Pinque Peacock embellishments, a 6x6 paper pad, and various embellishments that I need a home for. I also have two generous sponsors:  DigiStamps4Joy is giving a $10 gift certificate to the store, and The Cutting Cafe is offering any 3 sets.  WOW! If you'd like to be eligible to win, please leave a comment on any of my blog posts between now and July 6.  I'll draw a winner on my birthday.  It's my day, and you get the present!  I'd also love it if you "like" my Facebook page and follow my blog, if you don't already. 

Now, if I could only remember what those utensils are used for....
