Kraftin' Kimmie Kraft Challenge and Sale too!!

Good Saturday morning to all you lovely crafters out there.  I sincerely hope you are having a great weekend.  It's going to be another hot one here in Southwestern Ontario.  Tomorrow we are into September, can you believe that?

Anyway, this weekend, the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge is to use kraft cardstock on your card somewhere.  Our hostess is the uber talented Amanda.  I love her work!

For my card I used one of the very cute Snips and Snails stamps.  There are 3 stamps in the set and I love them as I'm always needing masculine cards, both for little guys and big guys.  This set is perfect.  I stamped this little guy on Neenah white cardstock and of course coloured him with my trusty Copics.  The patterned papers I used belonged to my DD Kimmie as I was at a Krafty Party at her house on the weekend.  I wanted to work on my card for this challenge and none of the packs of papers I took would work with Kraft cardstock, so as usual it was Kimmie to the rescue.  Thanks Kim!!

The image was cut out with my Deckle Nesties and I sponged around the outside with wheat chalk ink before I took it out of the die.  I used Baja Breeze on the photo corners, the border on the striped piece and also for the tag.  The 'Oh Boy' comes with the Snips and Snails set along with several other cute sentiments.  I added a piece of twill tape down the centre and gathered it with twine through a brown button.  I matted it all onto Pumpkin Pie CS, then onto a card base of kraft.  So that's it, I hope you all have some kraft CS to work with, it's great for so many projects, so I always have some on hand.  We can't wait to see your creations.  The randomly chosen card will win the stamp Amanda is using on her card, which is the Fortune Teller from the new Special Release called THREE WISHES.

We have some more GREAT NEWS!  Kimmie is having yet another SALE this week.  Instead of the 6 Frugal Friday Specials, she has put a whole bunch of stamps on sale.  Go to Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps shop and click on Deals, Deals, Deals to see all the bargains.  Even some of the Lulu stamps are on sale and everyone loves those.

Well, I'm looking forward to seeing your crafty creations, so I'll be looking for you!!
