That's Krafty Thursday #43

Hey hens!! Happy Thursday to ya! But of course you know that Thursdays are SPECIAL here in the hen house, right? Sure they are, that's cuz Thursdays mean it's time for another THAT'S KRAFTY THURSDAY challenge!! But instead of a Kraft CS challenge this week, how 'bout a TKT sketch challenge instead? You hens up for it?
Ok, here's the sketch:

Wanna play along? Just make a card using this sketch and any 'ol stamp you like. Submit your entry by linking it below using Mr. Linky by Wednesday, December 8th at 7:00pm. I'll pick my TOP THREE KRAFTY CHICKS from all the submissions and display your card on my blog, December 9th. The TOP THREE KRAFTY CHICKS will also receive my Clara, The Krafty Chick badge for their blog. Woo-hoo! Clara's UBER cool too! LOL!

Ok, so that's the deets for the TKT challenge this week. Want some inspiration to get you started? Ok, one card comin' up!! Here's my take on this week's sketch challenge...

Isn't this little fella adorable? This is "Elmer" from Stamping Bella. I think he's just SO STINKIN CUTE!! He-he!! I stamped him onto some Bella's Bestest Paper, paper pieced his shirt, and colored the rest of him with my Copics. I stitched him to some rust colored Prisma CS and adhered the image to this cute DP from BoBunny. To finish, I stamped the sentiment, also from Stamping Bella, and added the three brads in the top left corner. Whatcha think? You likeee? Leave me a cluck below and lemme know, k?

Now I know most of you hens get bored after the first paragraph or so, so for those of you who are still with me, I'm gonna let you in on a little secret. Needless to say, I'm kinda embarassed but I'm just gonna blame it on the L-tryptophan in the turkey, cuz it certainly isn't cuz I'm OLD!! (ok, no quacks about that!) Pfffft!

Here's what happened... I made my cards for this week's posts and after I'm all done and I've taken all the photos, it dawns on me that I DIDN'T USE ANY KRAFT CS ON TODAY's CARD!!! Uh, hellooooooo??? What a spaz!! Ok, so I'm super sorry about that, I know it's gotta be that L-tripto stuff workin' on my lil' chicken brain... Hmmmph!! Oh well, I really liked today's card any ol' way, so I decided rather than passing up a TKT challenge, we'd do somethin' a little different this week... tee-hee!! And now you know the REST of the story.... LOL!! {{{hen hugs}}}

Rubber Stamps - Stamping Bella; CS - Prisma Rust, Bella's Bestest Paper; DP - BoBunny; Copics; Brads
