I know - I know, I'm killin' ya right? Bwah-ha-ha-ha!!! Today I'll be featuring "Hangin Out - at the Beach" from Taylored Expressions. Now, you hens know today is Thursday, so this card will play double duty and work as my That's Krafty Thursday #29 card too!! Woo-hoo!!
Now, if you hens are like me, trying on bathing suits has to be the MOST DREADED shopping event EVER!! Now, don't get me wrong, I love shopping just as much as any chick, but not for a bathing suit!! Yeah, that's me in the dressing room! LOL! So when I saw this sentiment, I thought, "isn't that a perfect wish!" I LOVE IT!! I knew right away I had to make a little card with the "itsy-bitsy-teenie-weenie yellow polka dot bikini (but not on Jeanie!)" in the set and use this sentiment with it. *snort*
I stamped my image onto some Choice Buttercream CS and colored it with my Copics. I cut it out with my deckled rectangle Nesties and sponged some chalk ink around the edges. This DP is from Cosmo Cricket's Snorkle collection and I just love the bright summer colors in it. The bottom DP is actually the reverse side of the top DP, cool huh? LOVE double sided DP!! I wanted to continue with the texture look of the DP, so I ran the top DP through my Cuttlebug using the "distressed stripes" embossing folder. It looks really cute IRL!! To finish, I dug through my stash and found the perfect bright yellow grosgrain ribbon and tied it in a cute bubbly bow with a button on top!! Now what hen wouldn't love to give this to a girlfriend as a "pick me up" or "thinking of you" card? Now THAT'S KRAFTY!
So, ya wanna play along in my TKT challenge??? Just submit a card using Mr. Linky below before next Wednesday, June 9th at 7:00 pm EST. The only requirement is to use Kraft paper... that's it!! Nothing hard to it. Me LOVEEEE easy peasy!! I'll pick my THAT'S KRAFTY THURSDAY TOP THREE and post thumbnails of the winner's cards here on my blog next Thursday, June 10th. YOU might just be the next KRAFTY CHICK!!
