 Hello Krafty friends! Well, I can't begin to tell you how excited I am to be joining Kimmie and the Krafty Girls today for the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge and for the preview of the NEW May Everyday Girls by Annie Rodrigue. Check out this gorgeous Everyday Girl...her name is Tara...eeekkkk!!!

I'm an American Sign Language Interpreter and have always wanted an Annie stamp of a signing girl. I've been hounding poor Kimmie for SO long for her and Annie to make a stamp of a girl signing "I Love You"! Well, my wish finally came true! Here she is...Tara....I absolutely adore her to bits! Thank you SO much, Kimmie, for this wonderful surprise....MWAH!!!

I also have some special KKS Blog Kandy to give away too! I have added an inlinkz list at the bottom of this post. Just add your name to the list and you will be entered into a random draw to win a Tara Stamp by Annie. Kimmie has very generously offered to send the stamp out to the lucky random winner!!! Isn't that fantastic!!!
It is not only preview day for the new Everyday Girls by Annie Rodrigue but it is also KKSC day!!! This week we have a fabulous sketch for you to try by Krafty Girl, Pam! I hope you can get a little time to get Krafty with this week's sketch.

So, for my card I teamed up this fabulous new stamp, Tara, (eeekkkk LOVE her...SO exciting) with this pretty paper by Authentique called Loyal. I coloured Tara with my Copics and paper pieced her dress and tam and cut her out and pop-dotted her on the panel cut with the MFT OVAL Dainty Doily Die-namics. The Flowers are cut with my Upsy-Daisy Die-namics and the sentiment comes with Tara in 2 parts...I stamped the first part on one of the Mini Tabs from the Mini Tabs Foursome Die-namics.

Here is the inside of my card...I stamped Tara again for a shadow image with Rich Cocoa Memento ink and I stamped the second part of the sentiment on paper cut with the ribbon die First Place Ribbon Award Die-namics. I added a few more Upsy-Daisy Die-namics flowers and I also used one of the fabulous new Everyday Trinkets Sentiments...love, love, love the Everyday Trinkets!!!

Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card with Tara, just one of the new Everyday Girls.

Both of your cards are gorgeous. I love the patterned papers and how the flowers you made coordinate so well with it. Very cool flowers too! Your coloring is marvelous and I also think on the second card having the stamp behind is really clever! These are both exceptional!

Fantastic card! It's a wonderful image, colored and paper pieced to perfection, though now I need to take a closer look at Authentique.

I'm so excited that there's a KK/Moonlight Whispers image that is signing "I love you!" She's definitely a "must have" to add to my collection!
