Happy Saturday to you all! Well the snow missed us here in VA so that makes me happy but I hear another storm is in the works for Tuesday--yikes! I am SICK with a flu bug that my oh-so-generous hubby passed on to me, blech! I got sick yesterday morning and have yet to feel better so its a jammie day again for me, LOL! I'd rather be sick now and clear it out than when I get ready to travel later this month. So not sure how much I'll get done this weekend but my goal is to still get all 12 trees down and packed--I got most of the other decorations down over this week so that's done. Hubby informs ME that it is NFL Football Playoff weekend but I informed HIM that I could care less, LOL, and we will be taking down the decorations :) He did not respond which means he knows I WON, LMBO! I may be sick but I can still take a stand!

Well aren't I a lucky gal this month as I get to guest design for a few fabulous companies including Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! Yay--I love Kimmie stamps and the real-life Kimmie too :) We finally got to meet at CHA this past summer and she's a real cutie and super nice too so I was thrilled to guest design this month. She'll be SO THRILLED to see this pic of her, my funny pal Andi Murdock and myself at CHA, hee hee (that's me in my snazzy Scor-Pal shirt and Kimmie is on the right)!!
Well every Saturday Kraftin' Kimmie's Blog has a fun challenge and this week is Challenge #60 hosted by Michele Boyer--the challenge is to use NO RIBBONS or FIBERS (gasp)! It was hard but I managed to do it, LOL!
PS--NEW Releases from Kraftin' Kimmie come out next week so stay tuned for them!!
Kraftin' Kimmie stamps--why you ask? Because not only are they cute and fun but they have so much space/area within the image that you can really make your copic techniques shine! This beauty is called "Betty" and I wish I looked that good right now, LOL, not so much in my jammies, bed head and red nose :) My papers are all My Minds Eye "Lush"--one of my fave lines to use! I added a Prima Pearl swirl and some Prima roses/hydrangeas to accent the image as well. To offset the flowers I clipped some Prima cream daisy flowers to stick out from the sides--kinda leaf-like but soft & pretty. The cream trim was created with a MS border punch--since I couldn't use any lace/ribbon/material (sniff...sniff) I created the lacey border with paper!
And yep she got colored with Copics (R12,R11,R00/E29,E25,E31,E50/E11,E00). This pretty gal had to have some BLING so I added stardust stickles to her belt, stocking borders and pretty top. And yes I added some sparkle to her eyelids too--this gal has got it GOIN' ON I tell ya, hee hee! Hubby would so be wishin' this was me on Valentine's Day, ha ha ha!
Hope you enjoyed this beauty today and make sure to stop by the Kraftin' Kimmie Blog to see the other DT projects and to join in the fun!! Have a great weekend!
