KK Challenge 229 - An Oldie but a Goodie!!

 It is absolutely disgusting here in Ontario - so rainy! The rain thought is such a good reason to stay in side and get crafty though.

Over at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps they have another weekly challenge. This week #229 is "An Oldie but a Goodie!!". This is such a great challenge that makes you delve into your stamp pile and pick something you haven't used in awhile. I know I seem to collect them and I have quite a few I have never used before, as some of you can probably agree with. LOL.

This challenge is hosted by the ever talented Krafty Girl, Melanie! So the rules of the challenge are easy you are to create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp that is one of your older stamps or one that you bought a while ago but haven't used yet! So dust off your rubber ladies and see what you come up with.

The stamp I choose is Missy by Annie. This stamp was first shown to us back in October 2011 - almost 3 years ago. I couldn't believe it!

For a bit of inspiration I decided to use Deconstructed Sketch 150 as the layout for my card. Sometimes I get into a total funk and have no idea what to do. This sketch helped together with the fun stamp and awesome paper.

For this card I used the following:

E000, E00, E11, E13, R20, C1, C3, C7, BG11, BG32, BG34, R22, R24, YR24, E25, E29, E49
Paper: Pebbles - From me to you
Dies: Spellbinders - Ovals,  Memory Box - Elegant Scrollwork
Misc: Cardstock, flowers, jewels

Enjoy and Happy Long Weekend!

Happy Friday Everyone! - I had an amazing day off of work today and had time to get Krafty in my mess of a craft room, as many of you can probably attest to. LOL.

Over at Kraftin' Kimmie's they have a great challenge this week hosted by Stephanie! A sketch!! My how I love sketches. They usually inspire me to start my cards and quickly morph into something else entirely.

I so love this stamp! Did you know it actually comes with two stamps and 4 sentiments.

For this card I actually paper pieced the car...that was a new one for me. Love how it turned out too.
