Kraftin' Kimmie's July Release, Preview 3! It's getting closer!!

Yippee, it's almost the weekend, Happy Friday everyone! As promised, here we are again with some more Krafty Previews. Today we are showcasing the images of the fabulous Cheryl Alger. This is 'Back to School Mattie'. I just love this little guy, who happens to be named for my darling grandson Matthew, also known as Mattie. Of course he is also Kraftin' Kimmie's nephew. I had great fun colouring him, I even gave him dark brown hair just like Matthew. Isn't he just the cutest? Cheryl has drawn 2 more little back to school people, they are girls. They are gorgeous too and each comes with it's own sentiment, but I wanted to do Mattie this time. Now I can give him this card when he goes back to school.

I used a card base of Bashful Blue and used a layer of Poppy Parade (my favourite shade of red ever). I used a rectangular piece of some Safari Kids paper and matted it onto some more Bashful Blue. I used 3 crayon embellies that I had bought for just this purpose, I pop dotted the Mattie layer onto the left side after cutting it out with my Labels 4 Nesties. I stamped the sentiment 'Learning is Fun', which happens to come with this image, on some more B. Blue, then matted it onto some white for a little more punch against the red. A simple card, but I'm happy with it and I think Matthew will be too.

Once again, all you have to do is leave a comment at each of the blogs of the Krafty Girls who have made a preview card today and tomorrow one lucky winner will get all 3 of the Cheryl Alger stamps. Pretty good deal, I'd say.

Be sure and come back for some more previews tomorrow and then on Sunday for the Krafty Blog Hop as there will be some more winners that day too. Then it will be time to head over to Kraftin' Kimmie's Shop as all the new stamps will be available!! Good times!!

Have a wonderful weekend,

May God Bless you and yours,
Diana

  5. I love the red background and the green accent! And those little crayon brads are very cute --- I think I have some of those so when I order this set I'll be ready - perhaps I'll even copy yours -- and give you the credit!
