I can't believe this week went by so quickly!! Honestly, I think I skipped the middle of the week entirely!! *sigh* Oh well, one good thing about the weekend.....it's Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge time!!! yaaay!
This week our hostess is the PRECIOUS PAM!! *giggle* She's gonna kill me when she sees that! She calls me precious all the time and so I call her silly names back! But really I love the sweet things she calls me!! Warms my heart!! Anyway....on to the challenge!! Pam has designed this gorgeous sketch to inspire us!! And it really inspired me!!
I absolutely adore sketches because it takes all the guesswork out of the design of the card, which is often the hardest part! I don't think I've ever had a card whip up so quickly! To be honest, and don't spread this around because I'm usually SO ultra organized, but I didn't start my card until about 7pm last night!! Eeek! Like I said, my week just disappeared somewhere along the line and I ran out of time! But with this sketch, I had this card done in an HOUR!! For me, that has got to be some kind of record!!!
The image I used is one of the three stamps that comes in the O Holy Night Nativity Set by Cheryl Alger! I LOVE IT!! The papers I used are from the Mitten Weather Cosmo Cricket line....love the soft colours! I coloured up the shepherd and his flock with my Copic markers and drew in some grass. The card is a 5.25 ins kraft base and I used Wild Wasabi for matting.
To complete this design I stamped one of the phrases from our Nativity Sentiments set and then added a trio of buttons! These two sets of stamps are put together in a Gimme Kimmies Kit right now and at a discount, but only for a limited time! All our September Gimme Kimmies Kits are now available, so hop on over to the Shop and pick 'em up!!
I will also be entering this card in the Touch Twin Markers Challenge!!
