Crazy 4 Kraftin' Kimmie!!

Hey everyone, and welcome to this week's Crazy 4 Challenges challenge!! This week's challenge is being sponsored by one of my FAVORITE companies, Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!! We decided to make our challenge the same as the Kraftin' Kimmie weekly challenge, which is Faux/Real Stitching!! I was REALLY going to break out the sewing machine for this, but I would LITERALLY have to break it out. New, still in the box, two years old, sewing's a tragedy, right?

The girl's at Kraftin' Kimmie won't be posting their challenge until our normal time, 7am EST, but Kimmie let me go ahead and post tonight with the rest of the, I just can't hold my secret in any longer...

After being a guest for the last two months, Kimmie asked me to stay, so I am NOW a KRAFTY GIRL!!! This team is a team I have wanted to be on for SO long, and it is EVERYTHING I hoped it would be!! There is SUCH chemistry between these fabulous ladies, and along with me, there are a few other newbies being revealed in the morning!! I am SO happy for all of them, and as SOON as they are announced, I will add their names here!!

For my card tonight, I used the Smells Like Team Spirit set. I paper pieced the chair with some Echo Park Times and Seasons paper. I colored the rest with my Copics, and then layered it with Bravo Burgundy(SU), Night of Navy(SU), and Jellybean Green(MFT). For my stitching, I did my normal paper piercing and then connected all the dots with my Copic Multiliner pen. The ribbon I used was Graphite Seam Binding from the Ribbon Carousel, and Natural Jute Twine from there as well. I used Michael's brads to finish it off.

Well, that is it for me for now!! Be sure to check out my teammates at both the Kraftin' Kimmie Blog, and the Crazy 4 Challenges blog for more info on both challenges!!
