Kimmie's Challenge #4!!!


I'm heading into a very busy week!! Two people are on holidays this week at the library, so I am working full time hours. Good for the bank account......bad for stampin' time!! Emileigh is also getting a school award for honours at a ceremony on Wednesday night......we are SO proud of her!!! AND I am up to my eyeballs in pink giraffes and D'vine Swirls, making the 25 baby shower invitations that were ordered and I should have those done early this week!!

Anyhoo, all this to tell ya that I may be a bit behind with my blog this week, but I'm going to do my best!! That's why I'm posting this on Sunday night.....trying to stay ahead of the game!! I'm so organized.........don't laugh Mom!! It could happen!!!

Speaking of baby cards........you all made some great ones for last week's challenge!! So adorable!! The randomly chosen winner is...........TRICIA!!! Yippee!! Send me your mailing address Tricia and I will send off a little goodie for you!!

Now to this week's challenge!!! I decided to pull out one of my favourite High Hopes stamps called Jolie's Little Friend!! It was one of the images that Tina said ladies were falling in love with and purchasing because of the card I made for her, which you can see here!! This stamp is just so sweet.....the little girl in her denim overalls taking time to visit with her little wormy friend!! Heehee!!

Anyway, I stamped her on Shimmery White in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink and using the colours from my Cutie Pie patterned paper from SU, I coloured her in with my SU markers! I doodled a frame and matted her on Bashful Blue and So Saffron. The layout is one I totally winged!! I had a scrap piece of the dp and matted it on BB, then attached a scalloped piece of Certainly Celery on the side and wrapped some BB grosgrain ribbon around both pieces. I stamped the 'hello' sentiment by Papertrey on some white twill and attached it with some SU brads! And the ink didn't run on the twill!!! I love it when a plan comes together!!! To finish it off I just added a Magenta white flower with an SU button and linen thread in the center!!! You like???

SO, this week's challenge is to use the layout or sketch of this card as your inspiration!! Make sure it's a square card (you know how I love squares) and use the basic design to inspire your creation!!! If you upload it to your gallery at SCS, be sure to put KC4 in the keywords, so everyone can pull them up easily to look at!! And don't forget to post a link to your gallery or blog in this posting!!!

Hope you all have a stampin' good week!!!
