Sketch Saturday # 71...Ooh La la...it's Kiki La Rue!


Hey! It's me again! WOWZERS!!! Two posts in one day...that never happens for me! Just wanted to share this card I made this morning for one of my bestest girlfriends who has a B-day coming up real soon! I don't know about you, but I think the best B-day gift one could get, is just kickin' back and relaxing, with a cuppa and not a care in the world....oh and maybe a trip to the spa for a massage, smile!

So, I decided to use the, oh so sweet, Kiki La Rue...OMGosh, I love her name and she is just a cutie patootie! She is a C.C. Designs stamp that I bought at Scrappin' Great Deals when I went to Sheila's fabulous store for the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps launch party!

I followed the great sketch that is over at Sketch Saturday this week...I just flipped to fit with my image!!!

I was drawn to these yum-o papers in the Indian Summer 6x6 paper pad and used Bazzill Basics Cardstock from my stash! I am so thrilled that I can use some the Bazzill cardstock that is in my Monochromatic sets that I don't normally use as they go so nicely with Indian Summer! I stamped Kiki on ATS Copic Quality paper and coloured her with my Copics and shimmerized her. I also took my blue Sakura Stardust pen and just gave her a little sparkle in her eye! I cut her out with my rectangle Nesties and pop-dotted the image!

Here you can see her sparkle and shimmer with Angle Wings Shimmerz...I shimmerized the Caboodle Prima Flowers that I also bought at Scrappin' Great Deals....love 'em! Ribbon is American Crafts and a bit of bling to finish it off! The sentiment is from a MFT set!

here is the inside "kick back and relax" is a MFT sentiment and Happy Birthday is from the Kimmie's Everyday Sentiments set!
Hubby has the turkey in the oven and the aroma is starting to waft through the house and it smells yum-o!!!! Can't wait to dig in, smile!
Well, thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek!
Hugs,
