Tag, you're it!! Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge 86!!

Well, hello and good Saturday morning to all you happy stampers out there. I'm afraid I'm late getting my post done this week as I forgot to do it, yikes!! Good thing the boss is my daughter or I might get my walking papers, lol!!

Anyway, our hostess this week is the aforementioned Kraftin' Kimmie herself, my DD. Kimmie would like us all to make some kind of tag, whether it be on our cards or instead of a card or whatever tickles your fancy. The stamp Kimmie is using on her adorable tag is Becky Broadsword and if you happen to be the randomly chosen winner with your tag, you will win her plus two more Steven Leary images. Also, in case you don't know, Kimmie now has Frugal Friday Specials and they will be available until Sunday, so be sure to check them out.

For my tag/card, I used a quote from the Krafty Quotes #3 set. I hadn't used this one before, but I love it. A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle. Of course I don't believe it personally, but I love to say those kinds of things for fun, who doesn't?!! I used some Daisy D's 'Maybe Baby Valentine' papers. The reason for that is that I just happened to have some matching tags that a very special friend gave me some time ago (thanks Connie) and I thought they were perfect. I doodled around the edge of the quote and adhered it to the cute paisley tag and popped it onto some more of the papers. My cardstocks are retired Mauve Mist and Cranberry Crisp. What will I do when I run out of my retired colours? I used some matching yarn on the tag, put some cranberry and cream flowers in the top right corner and some matching buttons at the bottom. This was a fun card to make, now I'm ready to use the rest of those cute tags.

So there you go, now what are you going to do for your tag, card or whatever you decide to do?

Happy stamping,


Oh, I almost forgot!! Next week start looking for some Kraftin' Kimmie Preview cards starting on Wednesday. Next Sunday will be our July Release Day and you won't be disappointed. Right now I don't know which stamps to play with first!!
