Kraftin’ Kimmie’s Birthday Bash!

Hi Guys!

Well its been a long time since I have posted anything.  I have been visiting my kids and grandbabies for 2 1/2 months.  It was pure joy!  I have to admit that every now and then I felt the ping of withdrawal from card making.  I decided to jump right in and join the Kraftin' Kimmie 3rd Anniversary birthday party.  She is having lots of challenges and prizes.  You can find all the details on her challenge blog.  I’ve managed to get two cards made for Challenge #1 Pink and Girlie, and Challenge #2 Anything Goes. 


I’ve used one of my favourite Lulu stamps and the cute little sentiment that comes with it.  The image is colored with copics, and then I added some glitter on her tutu and hair baubles.  The flowers are made with the MFT rolled roses dies.  The stars were inked with distressed ink and then glittered.  The designer papers are leftovers from other projects.  I even decided to not be lazy and pull out the “ole” sewing machine….lol. 

I had great fun creating again, and have to say my withdrawal systems are all gone for now!  Thanks for stopping by!
