Last Krafty Peek and Challenge 65!

Well, who can believe it's Saturday again?!! Mind you, it's been a full week. I was up staying with my DD, Kraftin' Kimmie from last Friday to this Wednesday and we were busy working with all the yummy new stamps. We also spent some time making cards and colouring images, which was lots of fun.

Today and tomorrow we get to post whichever of the new images we like, so I plumped for Rainy Day Miles, isn't he cute? He looks to me like his 'wellie' should go flying off his foot at any time, his little legs are so skinny. Ain't nuthin' worse than a loose 'wellie'.

Okay, so our hostess this week is the wonderful Donna, our gal over in Australia. Donna has given us a list or a 'recipe' to follow. She would like us to use 3 main colours, 2 patterned papers, 1 button and one ribbon on our cards. I had to think about that one, but actually it was pretty easy. As I said, I used Rainy Day Miles, who was so easy to colour and would be the perfect size for an A2 card. I like to make the bigger cards so I can get more 'stuff' on them, although this one is quite simple. I cut Miles out using one of my Labels 5 Nesties. Then quite by chance, when I was looking for a scrap of Bashful Blue, I found a rectangular piece I had cut out and not used. I liked the way it looked behind the main image, so I used it. My patterned papers are Delicate Dots from Stampin' Up, but they are long retired. I used some Bashful Blue GG ribbon across the strip at the bottom, cut out the sentiment with one of my Labels Trio, using some of the yellow DP, then I added the required button with some white twine threaded through.

So now it's your turn to take on the challenge. You have all week to make your cards and link them up on Kimmie's Challenge Blog. One lucky person will win the stamp Donna has used on her card, which is Joanie and boy, is she sassy?!!

Don't forget to come back tomorrow for the Krafty Blog Hop as you will get one chance to win some brand new rubber from Kimmie for every comment you leave on our blogs! Of course Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps will be releasing their February Stamps, so they will all be available here.

See you then,
