Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge # 60....Unwind...Fishin' You a Great Day!

Good morning Krafty friends! We are back into the swing of things over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge blog! We all hope you had a wonderful and restful holiday and that you are ready to get Krafty with us again for our first challenge of 2011! This week Krafty Girl, Michele, is hosting the challenge and she is asking us to "Unwind"....this means no ribbon, trim, string, lace , fibres of any kind on your card or creation. So, I hope you can join us for this week's challenge. If you do and you use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp and you link up your card on the KKStamps challenge blog you will be entered into the draw to win The Krafty Stamper stamp that Michele used on her stunning card!

Oh, this was a challenge for me, smile! I love my ribbon...I knew I would have a really hard time not adding any ribbon,trim, lace or the like to my card, so, I thought if I made a "boy" card I could resist the temptation a little better.  I decided to ink up cute Curtis and I coloured him with my copics and cut  around him and pop-dotted him on the card. I used 3 of my Die-namics border dies, fresh cut grass, the negative of the Jumbo scallop and the small scallop cut from MFT My Favorite Felt, to create a little scene. The clouds are QuicKutz die and I stamped on the stitching with my Kelly Panacci stitching stamps. The sentiment comes with Curtis and I made a sentiment flag and added a black baby brad. The little strip of pp is from the Cosmo Cricket Mini Deck, Togetherness!

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card for the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps challenge! Please stop by the KKStamps blog and take a look at all the gorgeous creations by the Krafty Girls. I hope you can "unwind" with us this week!

the stitching on that grass border is very effective & that whole layered scenery with the border dies an intiriguing idea. Well done resisting all the tied & threaded complications. The only bit of unwinding needed here is the fishing reel!
