Friends Make Everyswing Better!

C4C146 SpringtimeLulu wm

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Our hostess Kelli Hull is back with another fun challenge for us all.

Being the third Saturday of the month it is time for another sponsored challenge. This time round our sponsor is Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps. If you haven’t checked out there stamps, hop on over and check them out as there are lots of fun stamps on this site.


This week are playing along with the challenge which the Kraftin’ Kimme Stamps Design Team are using for their challenge which is Stitching....Real or Faux!

For my card I used a Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp from the Springtime Lulu stamp set. Isn’t she just adorable!!!! and what a perfect sentiment to go with this image. I paper pieced the girls dress using designer paper.

I got so carried away creating my card that I almost forgot all about the stitching challenge, but I remembered in time and added stitching to the yellow panel down the bottom of my card using my sewing machine. I also stitched the two buttons onto this panel.

The layout of my card uses a recent sketch from I Spy Sketches (ISSC20).
