Sweet Strawberry Skippin'!!

Hello friends and Happy Sunday to you all!  Hope you had a swell weekend!  Total bummer to see the Ravens lose to the Steelers--we're all a bit bummed in the Dean household, lol!  It sure would've been nice to see a hometown team in the Superbowl--it's been a long while since that's happened!  But maybe next year right?  That's what I say every year dang it all, LOL!  Only in sports games can you go from a super high, high-fivin' and then total silence and bummed outness, LMBO!  We are off today to the RV and Camping show for awhile--James' favorite event of the year.  I can just see his brain twirling & whirlin' while we are there planning our future.  I'm all for RV'in and traveling the country BUT I will not give up living in a house and I repeat that to him regularly, hee hee---NO WAY JOSE!  I'm up for close living quarters for awhile but not FOREVER, I need my space KWIM.  I love him dearly but I also need my time, he needs his time and I gotta have a studio.  Not to mention we have 7 animals, LOL, who take up space!  And thanks for the well wishes for Riley--he's doing ok just struggling still but crossing fingers that the new antibiotic kicks in and helps!

Sweet Strawberry Skippin'!!


Well today is the day my friends!  Yep it's RELEASE DAY for Kraftin Kimmie Stamps and we are celebrating with a fun-filled Blog Hop!  If you get lost along the way you can always find a link list at the Kraftin Kimmie Blog HERE!  I got to use this fabulous stamp called "Stella Strawberry" by artist Annie Rodrigue---isn't she a sweet beauty?  This line is called "Berry Girls" and there are 6 of them in the collection, all cute and wonderful so make sure you check them all out!  And there are 16 NEW Stamps in the entire release for January 2011 so lots to see and buy, hee hee!  You know you wanna add some to your collection!  You can buy the stamps at Kraftin' Kimmie or for those here in the states, SCACD carries them HERE as well!  **As you hop from blog to blog, be sure to leave a comment at each and every stop because some lucky stampers will win packages of stamps from the new release!!



I had so much fun coloring her and my fun papers were perfect for a strawberry skippin' card.  The papers are by Kaisercraft called "Candy Lane"--love the bright pinks and greens.  The scroll work around the sides of the image is a die by Marianne Designs that I cut in half.  I used some white tulle to accent my Prima flowers to replicate the beautiful ruffles underneath her dress. 


She's colored with Copics but of course (RV17,RV14,RV11,RV10/YG25,YG03,YG01,YG0000/E39,E31,YR20/E15,E11,E00).  I added stickles to the strawberries on her dress and in her hair and the bodice layer of her dress.  I always like to add Diamond Glaze to their large eyes for shine too, just a fun addition!


Okay so your NEXT STOP on the BLOG HOP is my fun & talented Canadian pal VICKI HERE!!!  

Have fun hopping today and you are sure to get lots of inspiration from all the designers!

 If you want to start from the beginning of the hop, just head over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie Challenge Blog!  As you hop from blog to blog, be sure to leave a comment at each and every stop because some lucky stampers will win packages of stamps from the new release!!

    Hope your Riley is feeling better and back to his normal self soon!
