Kramftin Kimmies and other Challenges

(click on photo for a better look)
We had a good hours worth of snow her 1st thing but it has now turned to rain. I love the snow and hopefully we will be getting more here during the later part of the week.

This is another stamp fresh from its packet. Kraftin Kimmies "Emmylou". She is such a sweetie and I coloured her this time with my new Inkadinks & Distress Ink Refills, then highlighted with Derwent Coloursoft Pencils. Added touches of clear Spica Pen and glazed parts with Rangers Matt Accents. I'm sure there is room for improvement but am pretty happy with how she turned out. The papers are a mix of Basic Grey, Daisy D & Papermania.

The Challenge over at Krafin Kimmies (be a little ripper) this week is to use tearing on your card. I have done this with the Red Dotty Paper. Another new MS punch in my collection along with my favourite butterfly punch. Flowers from stash, a bit of stickles and gorgeous ribbon from Bunny Zoe Crafts. The sentiment is IMO, stunning and have used this stamp a few times. Think I bought it at Ally Pally a while back but not sure of the manufacturer. Just says Stamps by Woo!

My card also fits into this weeks Flutterby Wednesday - open theme. Lexi's Creations - Spotted or striped, Crafty Angels - Whats Your Colour? ABC - New, Cute Card Thursday - Spots & Dots.

I'm hoping to have a little more crafting time this week as hubby is off to Frankfurt for a few days. So not only do I get some crafting time but of course I will be using the Porshe for a few days. Why leave it on the drive, its perfect for the school runs LOL.

Btw, massive thanks for all the wonderful comments I recieved on my last card. 100 posts - wow. Its reading things like this that maked crafting what it is and I thankyou so much.

Hope to be back soon with another card and I can smell "Candy" coming some time this week so keep your eyes posted!!
Thanks for looking and keep warm!
