Challenge 36 - It's Sketchy Time!! and a BIG Announcement!!

Happy Saturday, stampin' friends!!! First off, I bet you are wondering about my little...or rather, BIG announcement, aren't you?? Well, I just wanted to share the fact that...Monday will be my very last day at my job at the library!! Why, you ask? Well, it's thanks to all of you..my stampin' friends!! Hehe. No really, it is! It's all your fault! Truthfully, I just couldn't continue to work my job at the library and run Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. I was just too busy working from morning until night each and every day. I've also been missing out on so much with my family and friends. It finally came to the point where I had to make a choice. Guess what I chose?? You got it!! So now it's Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps ALL the time!! Woohoo! Just wanted to share my joy and excitement!



Now for this week's challenge....we have an AMAZING sketch from the dazzling DONNA!! And you know how I love sketches!! It's a fabulous one too...and it inspired me! And it will inspire you too!!



I pulled out a stamp that I hadn't inked up yet...Cutthroat Lizzie! She's so sassy!! I pulled out some new papers from the Bo Bunny Sophie collection! I used Kraft cardstock for the base and Rich Razzleberry for matting. I added the matching polka dot ribbon and made a pretty little bow. Then added a wonderful skull and crossbones charm!! So cute, right?! I also just had to attach a lovely bling swirlie thing that I picked up at the dollar store. And to finish it off, I added one of the fantastic phrase from the Pirate Sentiments set!!


Now be sure to hop over to the challenge blog so you can check out the gorgeous creations by the Krafty Girls, using this week's sketch!! And if you join in the fun, you could be the random winner of Mae, which is featured on Donna's inspirational card!!

Best wishes for a wonderful weekend and happy kraftin'!!
