My lovely Blogger followers!

Flying by to say hi!

Yay, halfway through the week and I hope you are having a good one! I had drinks with an excellent friend last night - don't you just love having a good old chin wag and putting the world to rights?!  And of course the bottle[s] of wine helped the conversation flow!  Not that I need alcohol to get me chatting!

Anyway, I'm sure you're not interested in my social habits, lol!  My card today is one of my all time faves! 


I love this Emelia by Kraftin' Kimmie - not as sexy and sassy as some of the others but I just love her independent, brave, adventurous attitude!  Well, that's how I see her!  I wonder what you see in her?  And I used my precious My Minds Eye Fine & Dandy Try Blue papers - I'm running out of that cloud paper!!  I must be strong though and not buy anymore!

I am entering her into this week's Kraftin' Kimmie challenge to use twine or floss - instead of my usual wrapping of twine I decided to be more subtle and made that bow instead.  I used this week's The Sweet Stop Sketch and I'm also entering her into That's Krafty Thursday to use kraft cardstock.   




Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, My Minds Eye Fine & Dandy Try Blue paper pack
Stamps: Emelia by Kraftin' Kimmie, Lawn Fawn sentiment
Mediums: Copics, Pebble Inc pearlescent chalks
Accents: twine from stash, Robin's Dew Drops
Tools: MFT trio cloud dies (got mine from Dies to Dies For here), EK Success bubble border die, Nestabilities label die inside card

I'm a big kraftin kimmie fan too - this is a really stunning card. I can see why you'd be tempted to buy more cloud card stock if this is your favourite image - it's a perfect match!
