Food for the Soul

Today I decided to ink up one of my new Kraftin' Kimmie stamps, Lucy!


She has GOT to be my favorite Kimmie stamp ever. I am something of a bookworm myself so this stamp SCREAMED to come home to me:) I didn't have anything particular in mind when I set to making this card, I just started coloring and thought I'd hop on over to the Kraftin' Kimmies Blog and see what their weekly challenge was. This week, we're supposed to use SPRING colors so I picked out these papers from the Report Card collection by October Afternoon and started putting this together:) The little tabs on the stamped image are new dies from Verve called Charming Oval!  The die I used is the middle sized oval. I think this card is actually going to make it in the mailbox! I made this for a special friend and have made a deal with myself to send cards out more often, just because:)

Thanks for stopping by today!
