Mid week reminder....

Mornin' hens! Thought I'd give you all a "MID-WEEK" reminder for my That's Krafty Thursday challenge! Nothin' hard about this challenge, just use Kraft colored cardstock somewhere on your project and link it below on my TKT #52 post before Wednesday, Aug 3rd at 7:00pm EST. I'll pick my Top Krafty Chicks from all the entries and post the winners right here on my blog on Thursday mornin', Aug 4th. PLUS, the winners will also get the honor of having Clara The Krafty Chick sit on your blog sidebar. Who wouldn't LOVE to have Clara? Hmmmm? She's so STINKIN CUTE! Awwwwk!

Ok, so to get you hens motivated (since there's no way you are actually OUTSIDE in this heat!) I've put this little number together for you.
I stamped TV Peep, from Stamping Bella onto some of Bella's Bestest Paper and cut him out with my Exacto knife. I matted him with some SU Kraft CS that I embossed with my QuicKutz embossing folders, and then matted it again with some Prism Navy and then white. This DP is from an older October Afternoon collection called Campfire. I LOVE the fun happy colors in this collection, don't you? Ok, to finish off the card, I stitched around the edges, added a few red brads and tied this super cool striped grosgrain ribbon in a simple knot. Simple card but oh so cute!

This card is also my submission to this week's Catered Crop FTR #17 challenge. I SO wanted to make a cute alien card for this challenge but let's just say, time was NOT on my side. Hmmmmph! So here's the recipe for those of you who'd like to play along in the Catered Crop FTR #17 challenge.

* Colors – red, white, green; blue, gray, kraft <<< SEE, THERE'S EVEN KRAFT IN THE RECIPE - SO YOU CAN ENTER MY TKT #52 CHALLENGE WITH THE SAME CARD! WOO-HOO! (Make it a two-fer!!)
* Stamps and Stickers – strawberries, sentiment, aliens/monsters, scientists
* Patterns – circles, checked/gingham; scallops
* Color Mediums – markers (ProMarker, Copics, White Signo Pen)
* Embellishments – clear gloss, glitter, charms, brads, ribbon
* Tools – corner rounder punch, border punch, die cut shapes
* Techniques – faux stitching, doodling/drawing, make an easel card
* Theme – birthday, just hello/because

It's simple to play along, you only need to use ONE of the above ingredients. I've highlighted those ingredients I used in RED. Ok, now it's your turn! Come on and play along with the rest of the hens! We won't bite! (Chickens don't have teeth, ya know!) Tee-hee! Have a T-RIFIC Thursday! {{{hen hugs}}}
