Challenge #27 A Sketch!

Well, Hi to all of you ladies out there! I hope you've had a good week. It hasn't been the best week for our family as our darling daughter Kraftin' Kimmie has been really sick. I went up to spend a few days with her last Friday, just to hang out with her, Al and our sweet Emileigh and to help her with some rubber. When I arrived there in the morning, Kim was feeling just awful and kept getting worse. Al took her to the hospital and it was suspected that she had diverticulitis. She was quite ill all week, but I'm thankful to say is much better now and it isn't diverticulitis. We aren't sure yet quite what it is as we are waiting for some test results and some more tests, I'm just glad she is feeling better.

Needless to say, I am quite behind with everything and making cards was not on my mind during this time. However, I did get one made yesterday for this week's challenge, which is to use this great sketch from our super talented Jeanne. You can find the actual sketch at Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog, but what you see on my card is basically it. I used Bench Friends because I love that stamp, it's so sweet. I used TPC Studio Bugs and Butterflies patterned papers. I cut out circles with my nesties and put a pinked circle in between the two sizes using Rose Red cardstock. I put a couple of flowers on the top circle, then put the circles on another piece of the patterned paper, matted that onto YoYo Yellow, which I put on a card base of Rose Red. I coloured Cindy and Mindy in, matted the image onto Rose Red, put a flower on the corner of that and pop dotted it onto the card. I punched out the sentiment 'Friends Make Life Bearable' and set it in the top right corner.

Now let's see your creations using this sketch. Use your Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and if your card is randomly picked, you will win Queen Guinevere as that's the stamp Jeanne used. Check out Jeanne's card as it's just awesome! I wanna be her when I grow up!!

I also want to mention that Kraftin' Kimmie is having a sale for the whole weekend on her website. She has stamps on sale for 25-50% off. Now that's a deal and who doesn't love a deal. I know I do!!

I hope you have a blessed weekend and that you find a few minutes to stamp.



  1. Great creation, Mom! I love the combination of patterned papers that you used and you know this is one of my all time fave images!! Awesome job!

  2. Lovely card, Diana! The flowers finish it off perfectly! Pleased to see you back and I hope Kimmie is fully recovered now!
