Kraftin Kimmie #4 Guest DT Entry...Scallops

Hello Sunshine.... OK, not yet as it snowed again last night but I am READY for some sunshine and would LOVE to be FLORENCE right now!!!!! ;)

This week at Kraftin Kimmie the challenge is Scoopy Scallops

I wasn't sure where this card was going while making it, I colored my image and then thought... UH OH... Pink and Red... not just ANY pink but PTI Pink... the hot pink one... LOL  SO, I just went with what I wanted to use and I have to say, I LOVE the finished product...I guess making things "work" is harder then just letting a card ... Become... LOL  Anyway, here is my entry... this is the 4th week of the Guest DT entries and I am SO excited as I have completed them ALL.... now, FINGERS CROSSED I can make the cut to play with Kimmie and her wonderful Krafty Girls in April!!!!!  **eeeek**

Day 2 for MFT Sneaks

SURPRISE!!!! :)  Betcha never thought you'd find ME here this month!!!  LOL  Kim had sent me some stamps with my last batch (Guest DT Pack) that were for this month so Jody asked if I wanted to play along... Ummm, HECKYES!!!!  LOL

Fred Bear just TOTALLY grabs my heart and makes me go all silly and wild!!!  Well, lemme tell ya, this card just TOOK OFF... Layer upon layer, sticky dot upon sticky dot (literally for height-LOL)

I have had this Making Memories paper for a couple months, just knowing SOME day it would be perfect for SOMETHING... tee hee.. you know how paper shopping goes!!!;)

Well, I used SO many die namics on this card, the jumbo scallops, the grass, sun, flat bottom clouds and the flower trio which have some glittered garnishments in the center (I'm almost out and am gonna miss those suckers!) ...I "colored" my background paper with some Dandelion Memento ink using a piece of rub n buff foam, used a scalloped nestie to make the frame and began the picture.... I LOVE how this turned out... The inside could NOT be left plain with this gorgeous of a card right?  SO, another set of die namics and a sentiment that comes from the set.

Now this card features those Wacky Gals we love and call the Flapper Doodles...Yakkin on the phone with their bestie... this set is PERFECT as I am always on the phone with my bestie Kate... of course if it was one in the car headed to work while yakkin it would be THE perfect set!!!!  LOL  Kate gets me to and from work with giggles and gripes, no matter what she is ALWAYS there for me!!!  MUCH APPRECIATED!!!!!!  LOVE YA KATE!!!!!

Simple Black and White with no coloring but a BUNCH of bang... I sandwiched the ruffle ribbon in between two pieces of black CS to keep the working pieces from showing... HATE THAT!!!!!    MFT Pearls and an OLD set called Behind the scenes and the "new-ish" Many Thanks were also used on this card!   Now Head on back to Kim's for the rest of the sneakers peekers!!!

Sketch #7  mftwscsketch7-jpg  Playing along with MFT and the sketches... on a roll haven't missed a week yet... ;)

This week I had a tough time deciding what to use for my card, as it is obviously set for a sentiment and I didn't want to use the heart shape.  I did tweek the sketch a tad...I put the solid stripe up top in the form of my ribbon, and didn't flag the ends of my sentiment strip but carried the triple matting theme through and Lord knows flagging ONE piece of paper really is hard for me let alone THREE and have them matchy match???  Ummm, No Thanks! LOL

SO, I used SEI papers that I picked up back in January at Cindy's Simple Stuff.  It's a tough paper for card makers but I think it works nicely with this sketch and the Flower Trio dienamic along with the flower strip die namic... some pink Basic Grey pearls and finished! ;)

KK Challenge #3-Sketch

Here is my challenge card for this weeks' Kraftin Kimmie challenge... a sketch, I always love using a sketch and this one was fun!  I used the stamp set Narissa and popped her out of the box with my circle nesties, covered the the circle area in Glossy Accents for a water feel, the BG papers are from My Minda Eye-Brilliant borthers and Cosmo Cricket Delightful.  The very back paper has been run through the cuttlebug with a large polkie dottie folder for bubbles... tee hee...

Narissa was colored with Shimmerz paints for that fishy scaly (in a beautiful way) kind of feel...Copics for her skin and darker areas of her hair.  Thanks for looking!!!  Thanks for the chance of being a Guest Kraftin Kimmie DT Kimmie!!! :)

PI Extra Peek

Here is a lil gal that I made and peeked it at the release party but wanted to share it with everyone here too!

The new PI's gals are SO cute this month... this one is called You're So Tweet.  Bo Bunny CS and some crinkly inkly ribbon, so Viva Pearl Pens were used.  She was colored in with Copics.  I wanted her to have a fancy dress on so I colored the top half of her dress completely ignoring the pinafore lines... she even has her little white tights on... I just highlighted her legs witha C1 pen.
