Wonderful Wednesday at Kraftin' Kimmie

Hey there, Hi there, Hello!!!
Happy Wednesday to you :o)
It's my favorite day of the week -
okay maybe my second favorite day
because Friday is my favorite.
Anyhoo....Wednesdays are awesome
from a crafty perspective because at
the theme is Anything Goes!

This means you have a LOT of krafty
options and can use any one of them for the
challenge this week.  It can be any type of
creation, an color scheme, any sketch, 
yep...Anything Goes!  Who doesn't love that?

I received some colored pencils for my birthday
in April and have slowly been playing with them. 
They aren't nearly as easy for me to use as
my trusty and loved copic markers but I'm 
going to keep trying as I've seen some fantastic
creations with colored pencils and it's fun to
stretch myself creatively!  

My DT creation to share with you today 
features the beautiful CINDERELLA

I wasn't going to make a square card initially but 
then I just couldn't cut up more of this paper than I
needed to.  I wanted all those fun fairy tale words to show
so I needed a bigger space to work with. 
Do you do that too?  

Thanks so much for visiting me today!
I hope you will come play along with us this week
at Kraftin' Kimmie Challenges.  Each challenge you
enter during the month qualifies you to be eligible
for a $20 gift card to the KKS Shop!  
Wanna WIN?  Go get krafty!

Kraftin' Kimmie Challenges -Challenge #387 "Circles"

Oh hey if you are here to visit me today I'd like
you to pat yourself on the back and say 
congratulations for making it to the weekend!
Here we are already at the last Saturday challenge
of this month (wow!) at KRAFTIN' KIMMIE 
and the theme for this week is CIRCLES. 

Oh my gosh...as I typed this I started singing the
phrase in my head "You spin me right round round..."
and I don't even know what song that is from - hehehe.
Funny about the power of suggestion and I apologize if
I've now stuck that (or another song) in your head too - lol!

Anyway...back on track here...we want to see you use
circles on your creation this week.  It could be lots of circles
on the background or it could be images in circles or it could
be a circle card or circle tag.  Okay I'll stop - I think you get it!

Here's my card to share with you using one of the newest
mermaid stamps called SANDY SEAWATER.  I used a
sentiment from one of the other fun mermaid sets called
Serena Sparkles. Of course I used lots of circles too :o)


I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
and 5th Birthday Celebration (Congrats to the ATSM team!) 

Come play along with us for prize opportunities.  All 
entries in all challenges are eligible to be put in the pool
for a $20 gift certificate to the KKS Shop.  Go get
krafty and show us your own beautiful creation using circles!
Can't wait to see what you make!  Hugs! D

Kraftin' Kimmie Challenges - Wonderful Wednesday

Happy Wednesday crafty peeps!!
Whoo Hoo this week is cruising right on by for 
me and that means the weekend is that much closer!

Many of you know that Wednesdays are always 
because that means the theme is ANYTHING GOES!
Your entry can use ANY stamp and can be any theme, 
any style, any design and it can be a card, a scrapbook page, 
an altered item....you get the idea...ANYTHING goes! 
 One requirement though is that it must be a NEW creation. 
And you have until June 20th at midnight to entry this challenge. 
At the end of the month one random winner will be chosen 
from ALL the submissions for the whole month and will 
receive a $20 Gift Card to the shop! If you wanna WIN you need 
to go get krafty and show us your krafty stuff!

If you need some extra inspiration you can use the June Sketch. 
 The sketch will last all month long and if you use it in ANY 
of our Challenges or WW's during that month you will get 
an additional chance to win a store gift card! 
Here's the sketch (see below)

I LOVE to use sketch's but this time I kept my card CAS.
I had colored this image from LOOK FOR RAINBOWS
during my color along video a couple months ago but
finally got it on a finished card. The sentiment is from
RAINY DAY LULU.  The past 3 days have been very 
rainy with big storms in the evening so I thought this 
image was perfect.  June is Montana is often colder 
than May and definitely more wet.  It sure makes
things fresh and green though and I love that!  


I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:

Thanks so much for visiting me today! 
Hope your days are full of blessings.

Kraftin' Kimmie Challenges #384 - Die Cuts

Happy Weekend crafty peeps! 
Today is the start of a new month of challenges 
(and another opportunity to WIN a Krafty prize)

Our hostess for Challenge #384 is the crazy talented
Krafty Gal Marilyn.  She has chosen the theme of
using Die Cuts.  Marilyn is the queen of die cuts
(in my opinion).  I'm always in awe of her creations 
using them.  I have quite a few myself but often forget 
 to use them (not sure why - it must be old age LOL).

For my card today I used the sweet little farm animal
from the NEW Cow's It Going  clear stamp set,
and 3 die cuts (the grass, the cloud and the banner).
Other supplies used: twine (Stampin Up!) papers (SugarPea Designs)

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

I hope that you will decide to join us this week!
We always enjoy your creations so be sure to submit them 
so you can have a chance to WIN a $20 gift card to the Shop! 
In keeping in line with the rest of our challenges (Wonderful 
Wednesday and our NEW Krafty Scrappy Challenge), we will 
be drawing one winner per month from all Saturday Challenge 
entries to win a $20 gift card! You can enter as many times 
per month as you'd like!  Pull out those dies and go get crafty!
You will have until June 9th at 11:55 pm EST to get your entries in!

Oh and HEY...make sure you SEE THIS... It's time for another 
 Super Secret KRAFTY STAMP CLUB stamp set! Click on the link 
for more details and to pre-order yours today! Pre-order closes on the 15th!
