My BIG NEWS!

Today is the day I can finally share my BIG NEWS!


Kim Reid invited me to join the 
Kraftin' Kimmie Design Team!


Yep, that's right!  I'm a Krafty Girl!   Joining the current ridiculously talented Krafty girls was A-MAZ-ING as it was and then I found out that Kimmie added not only me but 3 other new Krafty Girls to the team!  Go check out who they are over on the Kraftin' Kimmie blog!  I'm SO excited!  I will give you one hint.......Meatball.  That's all I'm saying. 
Go look for yourself!

Today is my first day participating in the weekly challenges as a DT member! (wiping tears of joy from my eyes).  Kraftin' Kimmie is also sponsoring this week's challenge over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and we have identical challenges this week so be sure to play along and link up your creations for an extra chance to win some "rubbah" from Kimmie! 

Today the Krafty Girls are challenging you do to do some stitching (real or faux) on your creations for the KKS138.  For those of you you who have a sewing machine phobia like I did, get over it!  I got the Janome Sew Mini for Mother's Day and that scary thing just stared at me for weeks from its box.  Finally, I got brave enough to try it while watching the Stamp TV four part video tutorial series that actually begins with taking it out of the box.  EXACTLY what I needed!   I was sewing in less than 45 minutes.  I still am working on straight lines and perfecting this skill, but I'm doing it!  I'm sewing!  This is actually only the 2nd card I've made with stitching.  If I can do it, you can, too.


I inked up one of the adorable images from the Spingtime Lulu stamp set.
I paired some Bazzill Card Shoppe peanut cluster, marshmallow, and candy bar CS with some DSP from the EP Sweet Day.  I stamped the image in Momento tuxedo black ink onto X-Press It blending card and colored it with copics.  I attached my tag with some natural jute.

Krafty Girl Kerry Johnson is our hostess with the mostess so the winner of this week's challenge will win an assortment of trinket stamps.  Hop on over to the Kraftin' Kimie blog to see the crafty eye candy  Cheryl and the other Krafty Girls have created this week!
