That's Krafty Thursday #45

Mornin' hens!! I just have to tell you all how VERY much all your comments meant to me yesterday. I LOVED reading each and every one of them and they comforted me more than you'll ever know. Some of you even sent me photos of your little babies and I got such a kick out of those. Thank you all so much for your thoughts, stories and prayers...they made me smile! :o)

Ok, now I know you hens are all fired up for another That's Krafty Thursday challenge, right? Woo-hoo!! I sure am! I just LOVE seein' all your fabulous creations with Kraft CS. Ahhhh, all that Kraft CS does my heart good!

Ok, to get you started off with some Krafty inspiration, here's a little card I whipped up for my BRUDDER's birthday tomorrow! LOL!! I figure you can't get no better than to give your BRUDDER Gus for his birthday! Pffft! He'll probably make me PAY for this one but that's ok, it'll be worth it!!

I started by printing Gus from Bugaboo Stamps onto some Canson Manga Fanboy CS and colored him with my Copics. Isn't that sentiment a hoot? Did I mention it comes with the image? Yep, that's one more fabby thing about Bugaboo Stamps, many images have separate sentiment files that are included in the purchase price! NICE!! Ok, so after I colored him, I cut him out with my Circle Nesties and sponged around the edges with the die in place. This DP is from My Mind's Eye and I stitched around the edges and punched a cute border in between the two DP's with one of my Martha Stewart border punches. I also applied some clear glaze to Gus' glasses for a little shine on his spectacles. LOL!! To finish, I tied the saddle stitched ribbon around the DP and up through a slit I punched in the image panel and tied a cute orange button on top!


Now, this card also fits into today's Oldie But Goodie day over at the Catch the Bug Challenge blog. Be sure to check out what images the rest of the Bugaboo Stamps DT pulled out of their stash to use for today too!

Ok, now it's YOUR turn! Let's start the new year off with a BANG and have a record turnout for my That's Krafty Thursday challenge this week, k? I'm suffering from withdrawals of seein' all you hens' Krafty Kreations!!

  10. I still never miss a day visiting the hen house, Jeannie! It is the hit of my day. Just about killed me when you were on extended sabbatical. This Gus card is my late father-in-law to the T. Thanks for all your creative inspiration. You are the greatest in my book!

    PS. So sorry for the loss of you little sweetie. Know that makes for tough times in missing her.

    Side note: I'm so sorry about your Emily. I know it's difficult. I lost my Max 4 years ago and I hate to admit this, but I still cry when I'm reminded of him...not that things don't get better, just that they're with you always.
