Kraftin' Kimmie ~ Springtime Krafty Krop Part 3

My last post for the day, and my favorite! You'll have to excuse the pictures. My camera is just not cooperating with me tonight. This was the best I could get.

This card is for both the Fun Fold challenge (thanks Karen!) and for the Kraftin' Kimmie weekly challenge (Flowers!).

I don't know what I am going to use this card for but I love it!

My second card of the day (see previous post) is for the Happy Birthday Challenge.

There is no birthday sentiment on the front, but I stamped one of the Kraftin' Kimmie Birthday Trinkets on the inside!

This card seems pretty plain, but it's hard to find the right embellishments for a man card. I tried out one of the those nifty slip knots that I had seen posted on the May Art's blog a little while ago. Very nautical (I think)!

Inky Challenge

Time for another weekly challenge at This week we were challenged to Get Inky ~ inkier than we would normally get, that is.

I also made this card for the challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. This week's theme is the Great Outdoors.

My card...

I was excited to try my new grass die on this too! I always seem to colour in this image a little crazy, but I am happy with how it turned out!

Celeste did not want to be left out this week. She is still so proud of the time she won the weekly challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie! (You can see that post here).She made a (early) birthday card for her sister.

Pretty cute! And one of my favorite Kraftin' Kimmie stamps.
