So, by now you are wondering....am I lost? Did I stumble upon the wrong blog? Is the link not working? Nope, I made this....all by my big self. I hand colored, then cut out, and then applied Diamond Glaze to all of those gems...and then I waited for them to dry like a patient person.

I KNOW, RIGHT??

I even took some seed beeds, and silvery white cord, and created the beaded tassels that are hanging from my fancy bow. I used some pom pom trim....all sorts of stuff that was out of character!!

Oh, and ya'll, my paper all came from the Paper Garden, which is a company out of Canada!! If you live in Canada, and you are looking for some amazing quality paper, and a great company to work with...look no more, they are TRULY fabulous!! I used their Stardream Aquamarine and Kunzite from their Metallics selections, and some Aura Pink from their Matte selections.



There are several large script words plus so many smaller sentiments that you can mix and match to create amazing combinations!  Plus five lovely gem images for a total of TWENTY TWO amazing stamps!

It's also Challenge Day and as always, our challenge is ANYTHING GOES!!! So, create a card, altered item, scrapbook page with any stamp BUT if you use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp, you'll double your chances to WIN!  Use any sketch, any design, any theme because anything goes!  Have some krafty fun and join us this week because we love to see your creations!  At the end of the month we'll announce a winner from all the creations submitted for the month of June!  We hope you can play along for your chance to WIN a $20 gift card to the krafty shop!

What I have for you today is for the new challenge from THE CAT'S PAJAMAS!! Our new challenge is summer themed, so I though maybe we could go surfing!!


I am STOKED to show you my card using the STOKED set today.  I paired it with the Catch a Wave paper pad from Fancy Pants. Of course, there are buttons....and ruffled ribbon...and brads......buttons...ruffled ribbon. I also used the Wavy Stitched Border CutUps. 

Here is a look at the products I have used:
