WOW! There is a lot going on today! First of all, I'm happy to report that if you check my sidebar listing the Krafty Girls, you'll find 4 new talented ladies have been added to our team. These gals are so energetic and freakin' amazing that you absolutely MUST visit their blogs and give a great big WELCOME to Alyce Keegan, Jessie Rone, Sheri Willshire, and Kim O'Connell :D Kisses, ladies!
Next on the list is the very cool challenge happening at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. This week, our glamorous hostess is the lovely Kerry Johnson and she has asked us and YOU to create a card with Stitching...Real or Faux. At first, I was skeptical. I can't operate a sewing machine to save my life, so the "faux" portion of this challenge sparked my interest a bit more than the "real" option did. After I thought about it a bit more, I decided that some rustic hand stitching might be pretty cool and that immediately conjured up images of Drucilla, one of my absolute FAVORITE KKS stamps! I adore Drucilla! She has that krazy kooky hair that is a nightmare to color because it's almost impossible to stay in the lines, but that's part of her charm ;D In addition to those fabulous locks is that kreepy cute voodoo doll. ACK! Could she be any cooler! I think not!
I'm a bit of a Halloween and Dia de los Muertos nut, so this card was the perfect project to bridge my darker crafting desires until it's time to go full blown macabre...hehe! I know, she's a happy little image and these are happy little colors, but Drucilla is just twisted enough to make me smile and that's all I need to get me through ;D Drucilla is available in the Kraftin' Kimmie Shop, so pick her up if you need some "cute with a twist" in your KKS image arsenal. While you're there, be sure to check out the Frugal Friday specials under Deals, Deals, Deals.
We're also playing along this week with the folks at Crazy 4 Challenges. Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is sponsoring their challenge, so head over there and see how you can play along. Actually, it couldn't be any easier, because their challenge is also Stitching. Kill 2 birds with 1 stone (horrible saying) and join both challenges. Double your odds of collecting some KKS booty!
Alrighty then, I think I have shared everything I needed to.
