Hoppy Birthday and Challenge #66!

Good Saturday morning campers, I mean stampers! I hope you are having a great weekend, but for those who aren't, you are in my prayers!!

Our hostess for this week is the wonderful Elaine, our pal from over the pond. In fact she lives not too far from where I was born and raised. I love Elaine's style, it is very much her own and she uses a lot of sewing, which is always beautiful. Anyway, Elaine has given us a sketch to use this week. You will find it over at Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog, which is also where you will find the fabulous creations of all the other Krafty Girls. Since Elaine is using one of the new Krafty Quotes stamps, whoever wins the random drawing for their creation, will get ALL 4 of the new Krafty Quote set of stamps. Bonus!!

For my card, I used The Froggie Family from the January Release. I haven't inked this one up before as I'm always chicken to colour the animal ones, but I really had fun with it and I'm not too displeased. Mind you, please don't compare it with the Froggies done by the other Krafty Girls. Theirs are fabulous.

Anyway, I used the sketch and the frogs were the perfect shape to go in a circle Nestie for the required circle. I matted the image layer onto some retired Buckaroo Blue S.U. cardstock, which I almost forgot I had, but it was the perfect shade to work with my Making Memories 'Chloe's Closet' patterned papers, which I love. I used my Inverted Scalloped Circles for this frame. The card base is also Buckaroo Blue and the patterned papers are matted onto some yummy Peach Parfait S.U. papers. I stamped Hoppy Birthday on a tag of the P. Parfait and put 3 blue 'gems' on the upper left corner piece of paper.

I think that's it, so now it's your turn to used Elaine's lovely sketch and show us your creations. Don't forget that the winner will get all 4 of the Krafty Quotes. Be sure to check out all the other Krafty Girls cards, which you can get to from Kimmie's Challenge Blog, or from my sidebar.
