Hello My Dear friend

OK!! Good news! My internet is back up! I thought was going to shrivel up and disappear!! Ok, so…Apparently, after 20 minutes or more of  testing by the technician, it required a very difficult reset of the router switch. Seriously, all he did..was push the reset button. phhht! I mean…I’m not complaining…It could have been something major, but it was so simple…I felt like a blockhead. Ya know?
Have a told you how much a I LOOOOOOOVE coloring these Little Darlings Saturated Canary images? They are just so, so fun to play with!! The way Krista has draw them, she’s nearly made them impossible to screw up .You have got to give them a try, but I must warn you…they are a seriously addicting. Smile
This card is actually one that I made for the Little Darlings booth at CHA and can be found in the Little Darlings Saturated Canary catalog…

Kraftin Kimmie Challenge #139 Summer Colors Challenge

Happy Saturday to you all! I hope your weekend is shaping up to be a fun one!!  I’m not so patiently waiting for the internet guy to arrive to restore my internet status…Sad smileI’m crossing my fingers I’ll be back in the land of living soon!!
When I saw that Pam, our Krafty hostess for this week had challenged us to use bright, summery colors, I knew exactly what image I wanted to play with! Look at how sweet Judy is in her sassy little shorts sipping on her Strawberry Lemonade! I do have to wonder who exactly she’s checking out. Makes me think our little Judy and Channing Tatum are hanging out at the same picnic.
Also!! Be sure to join the challenge! You have the awesome chance to win one of the stamps from the Sea Jewels collection, the same darling image that the incredibly talented Pam used on her card, but in order to win…you must join the challenge AND use a Kraftin Kimmie image.
Thank you so much for visiting today!! Smile

P1040765 copy

So…I’ve been gushing and gushing about how much I LOVE Kraftin Kimmie images! They remind me so much of well….ME! Smile

Today…I get to let the not very well hidden cat out of the bag! Ready?

I’m a Kraftin Kimmie Girl!!!

Seriously! I know!! Someone pinch me!!! 

Our challenge, (love that) hosted by the very talented Kraftin Kimmie girl, Kerry,  is stitching, either real or faux,

along with whatever Kraftin Kimmie image you want.  I love the look of stitching on a card, so this one was right up my alley. All I had to do was clear off all the junk stuff on my craft desk and settle in for some fun sewing.

You will not want to miss the rest of the Kraftin Kimmie girl inspiration. Also, there is even more wonderful news over there!! The team has a few fantastic and fabulous and amazingly talented additions to it!!

OH!! and, while I have your attention, Kraftin Kimmie is also sponsoring a challenge over at Crazy 4 Challenges and guess what? The challenge is stitching! Perfect, huh?
