Sandcastle Miles in Blue, Yellow and Tan!

Hi everyone, it's Saturday again and time for yet another Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge. This week our hostess with the mostest is Jeanne and she wants us to use Summer Colours of blue, yellow and tan. I had a bit of a struggle with this to begin with, but by the time I had finished, I wished I had time to make some more cards with this colour combo, just to see what different styles and shades and layouts I could come up with. Oh, life does get in the way of our crafting sometimes, doesn't it? My husband and I are retired, but there just aren't enough hours in the day. Now if I just didn't have to clean house and cook etc., I could probably get a lot more done. Okay, now there I go, daydreaming again. Back to the matter at hand.

I used Sandcastle Miles for this card as I hadn't yet found time to ink him up, he was the only one left, poor little fella, out of the new Kraftin' Kimmie Release. To be honest, I can't even say I used him because of the sand in the picture and that it would work with the tan I needed to use. I'm not that clever!! I used some more of my 'A Day at the Beach' papers, which I am just loving. This lovely yellow paper has suns all over it, so it was perfect. I paired it with a piece of Martha Stewart Brights Pad as it has mostly yellow and blue dots on it. I coloured in Miles and then used my rectangular and scalloped Nesties to mat him onto. I then popped him up on the dotted paper, which I had matted onto some Creamy Caramel, which I had used my 'drippy goo' border punch on. I set that on the yellow sunny paper, matted it onto Baja Breeze, then onto a card base of Creamy Caramel. I tied some Caramel gingham ribbon across the bottom, attaching a shell charm to it. I finished it off with a Beachy Sentiment, 'Sandy Wishes'.

Now it's your turn to make a card using blue, yellow and tan. Be sure to stop over at Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog to see what the other girls have created. Their work is fabulous!! Don't forget that the randomly picked winner will win Tubing Miles as that's the stamp Jeanne has used on her card. If you upload your cards to a website like Splitcoast, be sure to put KKSC34 in your keywords so that we can find you there.

So have a great weekend and try to find some time to create. You know you wanna!!
