I'm a Krafty Chick winners!!!

Shuh-zaam!! OMG, this was the MOST fun EVER!! I was SO excited to see you hens participate in my little TKT challenge. You ALL were AWESOME!! Seriously, this was HARD!!
I liked ALL of your cards SO much! But as promised, I can only pick three... Free Smiley Courtesy of
So here are my That's Krafty Thursday TOP THREE!!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! YOU are the first That's Krafty Thursday KRAFTY CHICKS!!
You can click on each thumbnail above to visit each winner's blog. I'm sure they'd love to get a cluck or two from the hens! Stop by and give 'em a {{{hen hug}}}, k?

So onto my card for today..... This little image is from the Love is Sweet set from Taylored Expressions. I used the TESC 110 for this card and I really liked this sketch.
I pulled out this older DP from Crate Paper's Cowgirl collection which I absolutely LOVE. It goes SO well with Kraft CS don't ya think? I stamped the image onto some SU Very Vanilla and colored it with my Copics. I cut the image out with my circle Nestie and sponged a little chalk ink around the edges. (You hens know how to do dat now huh?? hehe!!) I matted the image with a large scallop circle Nestie cut from the same Kraft CS. I stitched around the edges of each square and then stitched the sentiment on top. Whew! That's a lot of stitchin'!! I tied on some natural twill, added a button with twine and finished with some red Stickles on the cherries. Now THAT'S KRAFTY!! Okee dokee, that's it for me today. Hope you've enjoyed my first little challenge and I hope to do it again real soon. Would you like to see it maybe every two weeks or just once a month? Leave a cluck below and let me know what you think. Have a GREAT THAT'S KRAFTY THURSDAY!!

  1. I love challenges. As I am not that experienced (stamping experience of a little bit more than one year) they are just perfect lessons for me to exploit new techniques. So go on with your challenges I love them and I will certainly be one or your regular participations (when work leave me some spare time). Both once a month or every two weeks is fine!

  2. I love this card! I just printed off all of Taylor's sketches--and now I am even more anxious to use them. You make such pretty cards, Jeanie.
