Another snow day, another card. :) I also curled up with a good book part of the day - The Dead Shall Not Rest, a murder mystery set in 18th century England. (I love historical fiction!) So, it's fitting that today's card features the book loving Lucy from Kraftin' Kimmie.
Supplies: Lucy (Kraftin Kimmie), pink swirl dp (Paper Studio),
heart dp (Basic Grey), Close to Cocoa ribbon (CM), small roses (Recollections - Michaels),
burgundy rose (Paper Studio), Copic markers, rhinestones (Paper Studio),
Winter Wonderland cartridge (Cricut), sewing machine.
This week's Kraftin Kimmie challenge was fussy cutting. Coincidentally, the Sunday Showcase challenge on the Designed to Color FB page was to fussy cut part of your image. (I've fussy cut around her feet and around the book at the bottom.) And while browsing through my KK stamps, I found this Lucy stamp which I had completely forgotten that I'd purchase. And guess what the current Simon Says Stamp challenge is? Yep, use a stamp that hasn't seen any ink in a while. I'm entering my card into all of the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp and Show - A stamp you love but don't use
Kraftin Kimmie - Fussy Cutting
Oozak - Anything goes with favorite colors (my favorite color combo is pink and brown)
The Sweetest Thing - sketch 178
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge - use your favorite color (pink)
Addicted to Stamps and More! - anything goes but must use a stamp
7KidsCollegeFund Challenge Blog - anything goes (you can find Lucy here)
I was really glad to get a chance to play along with Karen's sketch. I always check out her sketch on FB but somehow never manage to find time to join in. I guess there's a silver lining to all those snow days!
Well, it's back to work tomorrow for at least a few days. (The weather forecasters keep taunting us with the threat of another snow storm and we are all hoping they are completely wrong!!) Stay safe and warm wherever you are!
P.S. If you're wondering how I used the Winter Wonderland Cricut cartridge on my card - the swirls on either side of the rose were antlers on a deer. They make pretty good swirls, though, don't they? :)
