How Charming!!

How are you all doing this weekend?? I'm a little tuckered out! I'm still not totally back to myself yet and I seem to get tuckered out pretty easily still. So today was my first day off....I get a loooong weekend....and I took two naps! Can you believe it? And I'm still a little tired! Sheesh!

This week our hostess for the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge is the totally terrific TARA!!! Her challenge is called 'How Charming!' and if you've ever met Tara, you'll agree with me that she is quite charming herself!! She would like us to use a charm of some kind on our creations this week. Well, I LOVE charms, so that was no problem......well, you would THINK it wouldn't be a problem, but like I said...I'm not quite 100% yet and I had a small snafu.

So I decided to play with Marie Antoinette for the challenge since I hadn't inked her up yet. *gasp* I know!! She definitely needed some lovin', but to be honest, I was a little intimidated. I'm not exactly the best colourer (is that a word?) and images that require a lot of detail and shading really kind of freak me out. It also doesn't help that most of the other Krafty Girls have coloured her up and they look like pieces of art, for Pete's sake!! So how am I supposed to follow that?? But I thought I'd give her a go.



So I pulled out the new Capella 6x6 pad by Basic Grey, as I thought these colours would be nice for Marie. I stamped her on Neenah using Memento ink and coloured her in with my Copics. I think she turned out pretty nicely and I was quite happy with her. I used this week's lovely sketch from over at Cute Card Thursday! I added some amazing Prima ribbon from SGD, added a sparkly Prima flower and finished it off by adding one of the sentiments that comes with Marie. I took a bunch of photos in my photo box, edited the photos and got ready to post it. It was THEN that I realized I hadn't done the challenge at all!! I totally forgot to put a charm on her!!! How silly! So I added a heart charm and attached it with brown linen thread and then redid the photos!! *sigh*



I hope you can join us for our 'charming challenge' and be sure to pop over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge blog to check out the lovely creations from our Krafty Girls!! If you play along, be sure to link us up and show us your design because you could be the random winner of some Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps yummy rubber!!

Happy kraftin'!
