Kraftin' Kimmie - Pins and Pearls

Hey everyone! Just a really quick post from me today. It's Saturday (well...Friday night when I'm typing this actually) and I'm really hoping I slept well and late!! LOL! I haven't slept well at all the past week, and I could use some extra shut eye.  It's time for a new challenge over at Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog, and this week our hostess with the mostest is Ms Sandie Dunne! Sandie has challenged us to use pearls and pins on our projects this week.  Sandie used the Goddess Thaila for her gorgeous card, so that's the prize that's up for grabs for some lucky crafter that uses a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp on her challenge entry.  So using pearls and pins, this is what I came up with for the challenge.


I can't help it, I love making cards for what my grandson and I call "mushy gushy love day". LOL!  I used the adorable Cupid from Lots of Love 2 Set!! I ADORE this set of stamps, and guess what!!! It's one of the Frugal Friday Specials, so it's on sale!!! WHOOT WHOOT!!!   He's stamped onto Cryogen White paper and colored with Copic markers. I used some dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and some buttons from my stash. The ribbon is May Arts Silk.  We sure would love it if you'd play along with us ths week!

OH!!!! And before I go,  I have some SUPER exciting news! How many of you are big fans of the spectacular artist Annie Rodrigue??!! (can you see me raising my hand going "OH OH OH ME ME ME!!" LMBO!  If you are too, then you're going to love what I'm about to tell you. You are invited to watch the creation of a new Kraftin' Kimmie stamp....From idea, to sketch, to inked image.... LIVE with the amazing Annie Rodrigue!!!!!! Pinch me!!  Here's a link to the event:
