Good Morning!!! I hope you all had a great weekend! I got lots of DT cards made over the weekend and then squeezed in this card for my son Kieran. He is taking Karate, well, I think it is actually Jujitsu but I'm not a 100 % sure...anyways...he did is grading on Friday night and he finds out tonight if he moves up and gets a belt with a yellow stripe on it. He is very excited! I have total faith that he did it! I tucked this in his lunch bag this morning because he is also starting his Grade 3 testing today and I wanted to give him a little word of encouragement.
I made this card following the great sketch that they have this week over at Club Anya & Friends! I used digi Karate Ian for my card and Fancy Pants paper from my stash. I used some white twill tape and made the yellow stripe with my Acid Yellow Copic. The stars are QuicKutz dies.
Here is the inside...the sentiment is by CC Designs. I am quite happy with how this card turned out and it came together so quickly too! Love it when that happens!
Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek! Hope you have a great week!

Good morning Krafty friends! Are you glad it is the weekend?! I sure am! I had another crazy week at work so it is going to be so nice to just relax and maybe do some stamping,he, he, he! Well, I have a card to share with you this morning that I made for both the Basic Grey challenges and Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge! At BG Challenges we have another one of Martine's fabulous sketches for you to use and over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps challenge the very talented, Guest Krafty Girl, Krista, has set the challenge...Rough it Up...add any kind of texture or distressing! Krista has made the cutest card featuring the fabulous new stamp Perfect Poison from the May release. If you join the challenge and use a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp on your creation you will be entered into the random draw to win a Perfect poison stamp...how cool is that!?
So I made my cardbase 6x6 from American Crafts cardstock and I used BG Recess pp and the green sheet is from Sugared. I followed Martine's fabulous sketch and I added texture by using a piece of a corrugated box and I painted it with Tim Holtz Distress Crackle paint in White Picket fence. I stamped this sweet Kraftin' Kimmie stamp from the Crissy's Cuties collection called Gone Fishin' with Memento Ink on Neenah card and coloured Huck and Lady with my Copics.
I stamped the Autumn Leaves ticket stamp on pp and cut it out with my Ticket punch and then wrinkled it to add to the distressing.The sentiment on the QuicKutz tag is a Melissa Frances rub-on and the flower and brads are from a Chatterbox scrapbooking kit.

I also used the fabulous sketch at Friday Sketchers by Jeanette, another very talented card designer and I always LOVE her sketches!!! I used this yummy paper in my stash from last summer...I think it is K&Co. Citronella paper but don't quote me,smile. for my DIY flower, I didn't make a flower really...I made this lollipop "watermelon". I saw this on the cover of Scrapbooks Etc. magazine and I thought it was very cute so I gave it a try and I'm quite happy with how it turned out. I added a few Prima roses and hydrangeas too. The sentiment is Melissa Frances rub-on, on a QK tag.

For my card I have added green to the colour combo...I made my cardbase 6x6 from Brown American Crafts cardstock and matted with green Bazzill Basics card and the patterned paper is Scenic Route. I used this cutie Willow's Hot Chicken Soup from the new Get Well Collection and coloured her with my Copics and cut the image out. I cut the scalloped oval from QuicKutz Cork Material. The sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub-on and I added a few Prima flowers, some American Crafts ribbon and a few gems.
Here is the inside....I used another Melissa Frances rub-on and "Congrats" is a MFT sentiment stamp.

For my card I used my new Elizabeth Bell stamp from Bells n' Whistles Stamps. I just love this little girl lending a hand and doing the laundry...too cute! I had to get this stamp and a few others from Bell's n' Whistles when I saw the beautiful cards that my sweet friend Anki made with them!
