TKT 47 Mid-Week Reminder!

Mornin' hens!! Thought I'd give you a little more inspiration for those of you who haven't submitted a project yet in my That's Krafty Thursday challenge! Remember, we've gotta beat 38 entries this time! Yup that's right, I'm challenging ALL the hens now! No hiding, you know who you are!! LOL! Come on and play along in my little Krafty challenge. It's SUPER simple. Just make a project using Kraft cardstock. No Kraft colored cardstock? No worries, a brown paper bag will work just fine. See, I'm not picky!

I made this card for a co-worker of mine. (I know - there's a bow on it. Shhhhh, maybe he won't notice! *snort*) This image is "The Big Guy Jogging" from Stamping Bella. My little chick just WUVS this card. She just laughed and laughed when she saw it. She said, "that looks exactly like something you'd see - A BIG guy jogging with a little itty bitty dog!" LOL!! Ok, so I stamped the image onto some of Bella's Bestest Paper and colored him with my Copics. I matted all the layers with SU Kraft and stitched around the edges. The yellow layer is embossed with my SU embossing folder and I finished with this striped ribbon tied in a bubbly bow with a button in the center! Cute - Cute huh? I'm also entering this card in February's SFYTT challenge. Here's the February sketch:

  4. This is fantastic! OMGosh what a great job you did on the colouring, ground, shading, everything. Just gorgeous. (Men don't notice bows...)

  6. I love Mo's images. This guy is so fun. You rock these Kraft cards. May give it a try, too! Have a terrific Thursday, hugs...

  7. A bow on a man's card!!!! Just kidding, I think it's perfect. Love this card, great interpretation of the sketch and gorgeous colouring!! I'm inspired yay!!!

  8. Wow, such amazing colouring!! Just gorgeous! x

  9. Ha! I love this image! and so true, I have seen this before ;) Great papers and layout too!
    My boys have agreed with me, it's okay to put ribbons/bows on a masculine card only if you add a button to cover it, making it a 'manly bow', LOL! Whatever works, right?!
    Thanks much!
    hugs, margie

  10. You do such awesome work Jeanne! I love Mo's images, but I have trouble with the big spaces on them (like his shirt!) so now I will use this as guide~~thank you!

  11. You really, really make me wish I owned a sewing machine. *sigh*

    Love the card, as usual.

    I'm guessing we have until the 23rd to enter a card into That's Krafty 47?? (I'm just going by the fact that this was posted after the 16th....)

  12. Love your card, even the bow. Ha! I think it looks great and I am sure he will love the card.

    Your card is brilliant - he's gonna love it, bow an' all!!

  14. I hope to get a chance to play along with your fun Krafty challenge soon!

    Love your card, so fun and made me giggle!

  15. Awesome card!!
    Love all the different papers you used. Wonderful coloring as always!
    Daniela :)

  16. This image is too funny! I like the Kraft layers! Great combination of DP too and what I love most is the shine you always place in the PERFECT place on the image! Your coloring is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.! The bow is OK for me, even on a man's card. And on this image it matches with the dog's leash.

  17. I've seen this guy! Really cute card. I would have never put those papers together (no imagination), but they really work.

  18. He is soooo funny! I think I've seen this guy around my apartment!


I just love hearing from da hens!! Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me. Cluckity-cluck!
