New BasicGrey Challenges # 18 and Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps # 25...Ruff Day?


Good Morning Krafty friends! I have to say that I am sooo sad this morning that I'm not with the Krafty Girls, Kimmie, Andrea and Melanie, attending ScrapFest! I was hopping to go but in the end I had to make the really tough decision to stay home...pooh! There is always next year! I know the girls are having a blast though and I can't wait to hear all about it and maybe see all the krafty goodies they get!

Well, I have combined my DT challenges into one card again this week...the challenges went so nicely together, I couldn't resist! Over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge blog Krafty Girl Melanie would like us to make one "For the Boys" and at BasicGrey Challenges we have this great colour combo........


For my card I made the 6x6 base from American Crafts cardstock and used the yellow paper is from June Bug and the Blue sheet is from Lime Ricky. I stamped this adorable Kraftin' Kimmie stamp called Gone Fishin' with Huck and Lady from the Crissy's Cuties Collection on Neenah card and coloured it with my Copics. I love this image so much! Lady reminds me of my dogs O'Sheen and Missy. They both have passed away now but I still think of them every time I see this image of Lady and have such fond memories. O'Sheen was an English Cocker Spaniel and Missy was half spaniel and half Irish Setter. Missy had such a lovely temperament and she was so pretty and looked like a miniature Irish setter....such a beauty she was! So, back to the card....I cut the image with my Nesties and sponged the sky with Smokey Sky Distress ink. I used a Making Memories Grommet and some white twill tape, twine and a QK tag for the Kimmie's Fun sentiment. The Rain Dots added to the water/beach theme.

Here is the inside of my card...I used another Kraftin' Kimmie Sentiment from the Kimmie's Coffee Sentiment set.

Thanks so much for popping by and a taking a look at my card! I hope you get some time to join the challenges that we have for you this week! The BG DT and the Krafty Girls have stunning creations to share and inspire...so go have a peek!

Happy Stampin' & Hugs,
