Life's Simple Pleasures!!!



Can I just tell you how much I LOVE this Rakle girl???? She looks just like me in the morning.........well, close anyway. I paired it with this A Muse sentiment, because my most favourite thing in the whole world, is getting up in the morning, staying in my pyjamas all day and.....of course, spending my day stamping!! That's what I think of when I see this Rakle girl!!! It looks like she just got out of the shower and she is enjoying being in her pj's and ponytails!! She's so lucky, because she can stay in her housecoat all day and she doesn't have to go anywhere!

Am I a hermit??? Because I like to stay at home and chill out??? My husband likes to get out and go places and walk around. If I have a day off, I'd much rather hang out in my flannel pj pants, put my Ipod on and hang out in my craft room ALL day!!! I think it's because I'm with the public all day every day! My home is my sanctuary and my haven. I'd rather be here than anywhere else. Anyone else feel like that??

Okay, enough rambling....back to the card! I stamped my Rakle girl (her real name is Krilla Badekampe....??) on Wausau bright white cardstock using Archival Brilliance Graphite Black ink. The papers I pulled out, I think are perfect pyjama designs!! haha! They are all by My Mind's Eye and the square card base is Certainly Celery. I used my Copic markers to colour her in and matted her on Apricot Appeal. I added some yummy Prima flowers using SU brads, used my slot punch at the top and added some soft pink twill and tied it with linen thread and then I added some $ store buttons on the left. The sentiment is one I use often, because I really like it and I added a couple of small highlights on her cheeks using white acrylic paint and a tiny paintbrush.



I really wish I could stay like pyjama girl today, but I'm off to work again!!! I'm going to try to get something done this morning though, before I go. If you like the Rakles as much as I do, Phebe at The Town Scrapper carries them, so give her a ringy dingy if you'd like to know which ones she has.

Hey, did anyone else catch the results of American Idol last night??? Is anyone else as shocked as I am???? I saw the finale the night before when they both sang three songs and in my opinion, the other David was WAY better. He's got much more talent, as far as I'm concerned. They'll both do wonderfully well, though. I was just really surprised!!

Well, have a great day!!!

She is so cute Kimmie!! I love your new card!! Reminds me of me as well.
I also like to spend all my time at home on my days off. My husband doesn't understand, because he is a social butterfly, but how am I supposed to get anything done if I am never at home!

First time poster on your blog, but a long time reader and admirer of your creations. Your coloring skill and style is terrific.

The outcome of Amer. Idol was surprising but both guys are super talented and no doubt will have fine careers.

You are soooooo bad Kimmie. When I got my email from Phebe with the Rakle's I thought.........NO.........I do not think I like them. You make everything look good. AND NO....I will NOT phone Phebe.........No...NO...no...no....Nope....NOT! Do I sound weak?

OMgosh, I just love this stamp!! I like it because she isn't a stick figure, ya know what I mean!! I am exactly the same way, in fact, my ipod is on(has been all day), my flannel jammies are one, and the farthest I have been today is the mailbox, it's wonderful!!
