Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge # 17...Stash the Booty....Happiness is a...!

Good morning Krafty friends! It's KKS Challenge day and our lovely and talented Guest Krafty Girl, Melanie, has set the challenge this week! In keeping with our Pirate theme in this new release, Melanie, has cleverly come up with "Stash the Booty" or include a hidden or secret component on your creation for this week's challenge! Sounds like fun, eh?! Well, to get the creative juices flowing the Krafty Girls have some fabulous creations to share with you! So make sure you go take look-see!!!! I really hope you can join us and if you use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp on your creation you will be entered into the random draw to win a new stamp form the Febuary release, Cutthroat Lizzie stamp, Moonlight Whispers collection by Annie Rodrigue!

So, for my card this week, I decided to use the the sweet new stamp from the new February Release that will be available at the KKS on-line store tomorrow February 14th, Happiness is... by illustrator Crissy Armstrong. This is such a sweet image and I just adore the puppies! Don't you?!

I made my cardbase 6x6 from American Crafts embossed cardstock and used BasicGrey Sugar Rush 6x6 paper pad. I stamped Emmylou on Neenah card with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured the image with my Copics and cut it out. I had this cute mini-file folder in my stash and it was a perfect match so I stamped half of the sentiment on the file folder tab. I added a chipbaord photo turn with a BG Brad, some American Crafts ribbon and Prima flower and dollar store flowers.

For the hidden component...just turn the photo turn...

and this cute Cocker spaniel and the other part of the sentiment are revealed! This sweet puppy is part of the Gone Fishin' stamp also from Crissy Cuties collection to be released tomorrow!

Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek at my Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge card! So I hope you are all set to "stash the booty"!!! Looking forward to seeing all your gorgeous creations and creativity.
Now don't forget tomorrow is the BIG DAY!!!! It's Blog hop day and we have a fabulous time in store for you so make sure you head on over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps blog to start hoppin'!
