Sending You Hugs

Hey y'all!! Hope you are having a great weekend! Today I have a card I made for the Cat's Pajamas Tuesday challenge, and our current challenge is to make a BRIGHT card, which I almost ALWAYS do, so this was an easy one for me!!


I used the SUPER cute new Sending You set, and paired it with some Anchors Aweigh paper from Doodlebug. I then used buttons and cardstock from MFT in Orange Fizz and Gumdrop Green, some Sweet Tooth buttons from MFT, a misc. yellow button, and my other cardstock color is Ballet Blue from SU. 

Here is a peek at the entire set!


And you only have a couple days left, but here is all the need to know info!!

  1. Every other Tuesday a new challenge will be posted on The Cat's Pajamas blog and our Facebook page.
  2. If you want to play along you just upload your design to The Cat's Pajamas blog page using the InLinkz button by the Monday, 11:55 EST before the next challenge.
  3. You are not required to use a Cat’s Pajamas stamp or die on your project but if you have them we would love to see them.
  4. On the following TCP Tuesday, the winner will be chosen from the previous challenge and will receive a Cat Cash Voucher for $10 or $15 if a TCP product is used.




Well, that is it for me now!! Be sure to head on over to the TCP Blog to check out the work of my fellow Cat Packers....you're going to be amazed, trust me!

Sweet Summer Time....Thanks, I think....

Hi everyone! Welcome to another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

This week's challenge is a fun SUMMER challenge, and since the worst season of the year is quickly approaching, well, why don't we make cards to celebrate it? Yes, I said worst. I hate to be hot....ugh.


For my card today, I used the super fun Sweet Summer Sentiments set from Becky's collection of stamps. It was paired with some fun Kaiser Craft Summer paper.

My card is also for this week's Crazy 4 Challenges challenge, to make a thank you card for a teacher. I thought to myself, "self, there's no better way to say thank you to a teacher than to give them a summer themed card, and maybe put a nice gift card, or a gift certificate in it." And since I'm always right, I made it so.

We always enjoy your creations so be sure to submit them so you can have a chance to WIN a $20 gift card to the Shop!! Show us your stuff!!

Born To Rock-Fashion Doll Style

Some how, I made cards....and I did not post them on my blog....how did this insanity happen???
Especially when they involve some super cute Paper Nest Dolls LOVE!!


This is a card I made using the super cute Fashion Dolls: Punk image. She was paired with some fun paper from The MME Lime Twist line, and colored in bright, fun colors. I used Orange Fizz, Blu Raspberry, and Sour Apple from MFT for my cardstock, and button. The grosgrain ribbon I used is Orange Grosgrain from MFT, too. I also used spiral clips, and brads...oh and twine, because that's what I do.

Well, that is it for me for now! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

An Apple A Day....

I recently got a request from one of my very best Etsy customers to make a congratulations card for her mister for graduating from medical school.  She wanted something a bit playful, and I happened to remember having this set from Gina K Designs, so I dug him out, and got to work!


It's Dr. Feelgood people, and although he didn't come with the Apple A Day sentiment, I made one on my computer just for her. Sadly, he isn't for sale any longer, but I paired my cute doctor with the Apple Die-namics from My Favorite Things. I used some fun Circus paper from Carta Bella. My cardstock is from MFT(Wild Cherry, Sour Apple, and Black Licorice) and Bazzil(Banana Split). I used some fun May Arts V Striped Black ribbon, twine, spiral clips, and brads. If you know me at all, you know I couldn't finish a card without some buttons...all from MFT in Black Licorice, Wild Cherry, and Lemon Drop.

I already know she has received this, and she is happy with it, so I wanted to go ahead and share it. 
Plus, it's super fun...and I made it, so here it is!!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!!
