Kraftin' Kimmie Challenges #524 - PARTY ANIMALS

Happy Saturday all.

How are you doing with these crazy times of the COVID
virus and social distancing?  I hope that you are finding 
something to bring you joy each day and stay positive.  
We at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps are here to help give you a 
crafty distraction with the start of a new weekly challenge 
and a whole weekend of FUN during a 
Krafty Friends Facebook Group.  If you aren't a 
member of this kind, inspiring and fun group
you're missing out - and we'd love to have you with us!

So... Let me tell you about the theme for this week.
Challenge #524 is PARTY ANIMALS

I used a super cute NEW stamp set called ZOODLES that is 
just perfect for this theme.  And, the new Party-Time Sentiments 
stamp set has some great birthday sentiments too - I used one of them.
Ohhhh and I don't want to forget the fun Party Dots too. 

Take a look:

My inspiration for the design came from the sketch challenge
with the option of a Jungle Fever theme

I'm also entering my card in these challenges.
(while I didn't make it specifically for a kid, it could certainly fit that
I might give it to my nephew, not sure yet who it goes to).

Before I go I want to share an awesome SALE with you
at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.  This is a great time to get 
some of your favorite stamps, stencils and inks while
you are staying in and taking care of yourself.  
Having new crafty goodies and projects definitely makes the 
days better.  Just think of all the fun you can have while staying in!

As we continue to navigate this strange world situation, remember
that social distancing is physical not complete distance.  Reach out to your friends 
and family via phone, text and face time.  Check on your 
neighbors, be a source of light and love for someone who is 
feeling scared or overwhelmed.  Be kinder than usual to others and to yourself.
Some days it feels harder and scarier (personal experience).  Lean
on each other and stay positive and thankful.  We WILL make it
through this!  I'm thankful for so many things - and for 
each of you who visit my blog and let me share my creations
with you. This weekend I'm going craft as much as possible and 
participate in the Virtual Krafting Event.  Perhaps you'll be joining us too?  
Stay safe and positive my friends!  Hugs! D
