Sketch time at Kraftin Kimmies!

Happy weekend everyone! I am working today but will hopefully get a chance to peek in on everyone later. Today is my second week as a guest designer for Kraftin Kimmie stamps and can I tell ya, these girls are great! Always checking on one another and supporting each other, aren't we lucky to be part of this big circle of things? Amazing how we can touch one anothers lives yet quite likely never even meet. Okay, enough blabber out of me, onto my card. This week we have a sketch to follow by Michele at http://papercuts.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/. I will post it after my card for you, it was a wonderful sketch to work with and since I am a "sketchaholic" I will be saving this one to use again. Do you notice my restraint with the exclamation points? I'm tryin!
This image is called Mae and can be purchased at http://www.kraftinkimmiestamps.com/. I have colored her with copics, the paper is by Cosmo Cricket called Delovely. Aren't these bright colors just gorgeous! I have used some flowers I pulled off a stem down the side, I think they are from the bridal section at Michaels, and a large rose in the corner. Sorry I don't know who the sentiment is by, was just sitting in my drawer and seemed to fit. I need to check out kimmies store and get some more sentiments, the ones she puts together are so cute. I layered everything with black cardstock to make it pop and used my new Janome sew mini for all the stitching. LOVE that little sewing machine. FYI, I got mine from overstock.com really reasonably, refurbished and it works like a dream. Ok, I think that is it for today. Don't forget next week is our blog hop and trust me when I say I think this latest release is probably my favorite of all times. Wasn't I lucky to be chosen to be a guest designer this month?!!!!  Ok, here is the sketch so let's see what ya got girls
