Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge 88. A Sketch!!

Good Saturday morning to all you guys and gals out there. Wow, how about this crazy weather we have been having!! Sure makes me miss the pool we had at our last house. Oh, how I loved that thing, I lived in it.

Anyway, now down to business, well, fun actually!! As you will have seen from the title, we have a sketch for you this week. You will be able to see the actual basic sketch at Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog. I'd make a right mess of things if I tried to stick it on here!!

Well, my card pretty much follows the sketch, so that will give you an idea. Of course, you don't have to be exact anyway, as my DD always tells me, as long as you can see the basic idea, that's alright. I coloured up 'Bookworm Jaime', one of the July Release of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. Jaime is named for a special little friend of Kimmie's, as most of her stamps are. I think Jaime is just adorable. Wish I'd been that studious when I went to school!! I used a card base of Daffodil Delight, which I also used to frame the Jaime layer. All the rest of the papers were 'Bugs and Butterflies' by TPC Studio. I love all the caterpillars and bugs on the background papers. I used some Tangerine Tango Taffeta Ribbon across the centre, added a couple of buttons in the upper left corner, a flower on the left side of the ribbon and I stamped 'Learning is Fun' on some of the blue PP and put it in the lower right corner.

Now you get to try your hand at the sketch, which by the way is provided by our Terribly Talented Tara and since she has used Tori on her card, that's what you will have a chance of winning when you link up your card to Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog.

Also, did you know that most weeks, Kimmie has Frugal Friday Specials, this week's started yesterday and are available until Sunday. The stamps available are:-

Eleanor, Cannonball Cameron, Brady the Builder, Lavender the Quilter and Party Time. All these stamps are 40-50% off the regular price. Good deal, I'd say!!

Well, I hope you have fun with the sketch and that you have a great weekend.
