It's A Kraftin' Kimmie Kinda Day...

It's challenge time again with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, and guess what....I'm this month's Guest Designer!!! I was SO THRILLED when I got an email from Kim and Michele Boyer asking me if I would be interested, and I could NOT say no!! I LOVE Kimmie's stamps, and own several, I just never get a chance to play with's my chance!!! Thank you SO MUCH Kimmie for this FABULOUS honor!!

This week's challenge is being hosted by Angie Baker, and her challenge was to do anything but a card...I picked the perfect time to be a guest, huh, LOL!!! I don't normally do ABC, so I was so nervous about my project for today, I can't even tell you! The prize this week is the super cute new Miss Information set that was just released!!

My boyfriend and I just moved into a new house, and his kids FINALLY have rooms of their own with us, so I wanted to make something special for his daughter Jenna's room. She and I spent over an hour in Target picking out a bed set, and this will match it pretty darn closely! So, I decided to do a altered clipboard to hang on her's not really functional as a clipboard now, but I love the way it turned out! I used one of the ADORABLE images from the Springtime Lulu set, which was stamped on X-Press It Blending Card. I colored her with my Copics, then layered her with Black Licorice card stock. I used all three MFT Royal Rose Die-namics(Large, Royal, and Mini) to create my flowers from some MME So Sophie and Black Licorice card stock. I used the MFT Fancy Flourish Die-namics for my flourishes, and some American Crafts Thickers for Jenna's name. My ribbon is Black Vintage Seam Binding from the Ribbon Carousel, and I used a Creative Express Spiral Clip. To cover the clipboard, I used both the MME So Sophie and Meadowlark paper pads, along with some scallops made with the MFT Simply Scalloped Medium Die-namics.

Here is a close up of my super cute Lulu image!

Well, that is it for me for now! Be sure to head on over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Blog to see what the other girls have created for this challenge!!! I am SO honored to be working with them!! Have a great day!!

For my card tonight, I used the new Vanity Plate set. I paired it with some  MME Dolled Up paper. My cardstock colors are Jellybean Green, Sno Cone, and Cameo Coral(SU). The Butterflies I used were cut out using the MFT Butterfly Die-namics and the MME paper. I added some silver brads from Michael's to them. My letters were stamped with Cameo Coral, Kiwi Kiss, and Baja Breeze ink from SU. To finish, I used the new Notched Border Die-namics, and some White Satin Edged Grosgrain, Sno Cone Grosgrain, and Blossom Twine. 

My card is also for this week's Crazy 4 Challenges challenge, to use Butterflies. If you haven't been playing along, you should check us out!
