Challenge 77! Let's Get Krafty!! Also National Scrapbooking Day Sale! Up to 75% off!!

Hi all you Happy Stampers out there. First of all I must tell you that Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is celebrating National Scrapbooking Day and Mother's Day by having a big ol' SALE!!! There are over 100 stamps from all of our lines on sale 25-75% off!! Yes, you read that right! This sale will run from Friday May 6th - Tuesday May 10th! And some of these images will be retiring shortly, so get them before they are GONE!!! (Cannot be combined with other coupons/discounts!)

Now to the other business of the day. This week our challenge is to use Kraft cardstock on our cards. Our hostess this week is the Tantalizing and Talented Tracy. Tracy lives in Chatham so is only a few miles away from me. I had the pleasure of meeting 'Ribbons, Buttons and Pearls' at the launch celebration for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, but I haven't seen her since. We have had a few krafty days and get togethers since, but either I was not there or Tracy wasn't there. One of these days we will connect once more. Anyway, I love Tracy's work and I would love to watch how she colours with her Prisma pencils as I am hopeless with them. I can barely function with Copics!!

Okay, so I used Astronaut Andy for my card. Andy is one of the April Release of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and he is perfect for a boy card. I coloured him with my Copics, then cut him out with my rectangle Nesties, then framed that layer with some Kraft cardstock, then used my Scalloped Nesties behind that. I used some K and Company Summer Travel DP, matted onto some Bermuda Bay C.S. and then onto my card base of Kraft cardstock. I added some Kraft Taffeta ribbon and I used the sentiment 'Flyin' High' from Kimmie's Steampunk Sentiments and attached it with a copper brad.

So now you get to make a Krafty creation and be sure to link it up to Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog for a chance to win some new rubber!

Now be sure to stop back next Wednesday as we will be starting the Krafty Peeks for May. Just wait till you see what we have for you. As always the Krafty Girls will be showing some awesome cards made with the soon to be released stamps. And make sure you take part in our blog hop for next Sunday, the 15th. and leave a comment at each of the Krafty Girls and Guests Blogs for a chance to win some of the new rubbah!! What could be better?!!
