Hello Hello! I have been spending an awful lot of time in my crafty basement this week, because the weather is smokin hot, and my husband is away at Camp Likely (a Christian Bible Camp). He's the head cook for the week...cooking for 85 kids! Yikes! So far, he's doing good (especially considering he's not a cook!)
Anyway, Kraftin Kimmie is having a DT call, and they're challenge this week is to use your favourite Kraftin Kimmie stamp, so I thought I'd play along, whilst trying out for the DT spot at the same time! I'd very much love to be a Krafty Girl! My favourite KK stamp is Charlotte (who just so happens to be on sale at the Kraftin Kimmie website for 4.80!!!). She's just so stinkin cute! Her hair is awesome and I love that whimsical dress and bow! She's my kind of cute too...cute, but funky! I thought she'd go perfectly with the sunshine sentiment from Kimmie's Beachy Sentiments.
I cut the "sun" in the background with my Cameo and I used the middle from blue piece on the opposite side with a fun little Bo Bunny button to add some of the same colour on the other side for some "visual balance". Quick Quotes is having a challenge this month to use punches or die cut shapes, so I'm going to play along with them too!
Here's a close up of that funky little chickie
And one of the sentiment and the cute little flower cluster. I've been totally blinging it up lately...which is sooo not like me...but I've been in the mood for some super sunny, colourful cards and layouts. Must be all the sunshine we're getting here!
I found this great sketch from Made Especially For You, and I thought if I flipped it, it would go perfectly with what I was looking for. Because I knew I wanted to use the "you are my sunshine" sentiment, I wanted to find a sketch that I could have a "sun like" element in the background, and this was the first sketch I found, and it was perfect! Gotta love it when that happens eh?!
Well, there you go! I hope you like my card! Now I'm curious...what's your favourite Kraftin Kimmie Stamp?? Drop me a line and let me know ;)
