Kraftin' Kimmie's Birthday Celebrations! Day One!!


Edited to Add: The random winner of Challenge #1 is Naoul from A Scrapable Life!! Please email me with your mailing information and which CCDesigns stamp set you would like and I will forward it on to Christine at All That Scraps!! Congratulations!!

OOOOOHHHH I'm so glad you stopped by to see me today!!! It's Day One of Kraftin' Kimmie's Birthday Celebrations!!! All this week I'm going to have fun cards, crafty challenges and lotsa Kimmie's Kandy!!!! How's about that???

Each day this week I'm going to be posting a challenge and every chickie-poo who joins in, is in for the draw to win that day's prize!! AND each entry to the daily challenges gets you an entry into the GRAND PRIZE at the end of the week!! Sound like fun?? I think so!

Today's sponsor is All That Scraps online store!!! Tonight is the February release party over at the ATS Forum and one of the sets going live is featured on my rockin' birthday card today!!! Isn't Bear the cutest???

I used some awesome Three Bugs in a Rug dp as my inspiration for this one. I stamped Bear on Wausau bright white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured him in using my Copic markers. The card base is Basic Black and the rest is dp. The stars are punched out of black glitter cardstock. I used my Nesties to cut him out and emboss him, drew in the ground and coloured his 'makeup star' with Angel Wings Shimmerz! I stamped the sentiment straight on the cardstock and added some lilac coloured twill!



NOW, for your challenge.....should you choose to accept it!! heehee!! Mom and I were talking yesterday about how difficult it is to match up blues and purples sometimes. So for today's challenge your card must be a birthday card and it must have some purple on it somewhere!! You are free to use ANY stamps, papers, embellishments etc., just follow along with the challenge requirements. In order to be included in the random draws, your designs can be combined with other challenges, but NOT my challenges. So you can't make a card using Monday and Tuesday's challenges and have them count for both draws. Get it?! Good.

Please be sure to leave me a comment on this post with a link to your creation. And if you post it to an online gallery like SCS, please use the keywords KKBC1 so that we can find them all in one place! The deadline for this challenge is Sunday, February 8th at 8pm EST to be entered in the draw!

OH! Would you like to know what you can win??? Christine from All That Scraps has generously donated a CCDesigns stamp set of the winner's choice!!! How's that for a supah dupah prize??? So come on, I wanna see some purple birthday cards!!! Heehee!!
