Gettin' sketchy at Kraftin' Kimmie's

Welcome to the weekend everybody. :)

It's Saturday and that means it is time for a new challenge over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! This week there is a fun sketch to follow for a shot at winning a free KK stamp! You can check out the sketch here and I gotta say that it is a pretty easy one to follow, leaving plenty of room for you to play around and embellish to your hearts content. So why not pull out a KK stamp, doesn't matter if it's old or new, and get sketchy with us? We would love to see you play along! :)

As I was flipping through my Kimmie stamps to make today's card, this crazy eyed little Goldilocks was jumping up and down, curls bobbing all out of control, chanting, "Please, please, please, please, pleeeeeeease pick me!" To be honest, I was a little afraid not to pick her! LOL
With that look in her eyes and the way she is holding those teddy bears, she kinda reminds me of the character from the Bugs Bunny cartoons who catches Bugs and holds him real tight saying, "I'm gonna hold him and pet him and love him and squeeze him and call him George." Tender loving care just doesn't seem to be a part of her vocabulary. Which is a big part of why I love Annie's images so much... there is an attitude there and a playful kind of craziness that makes for some very fun cards. Oh, and those curls were SO much fun to color too! ;)

Well, I guess I should go get ready for work now... TTYL!

Amy while I think that you are so very talented and a true artist I still think that you should become an author. I would so read any book that your wrote. You just have the neatest talent for expressing yourself. If you want a person to laugh you do, if you want to weave a wonderful story about a snowflake you mange to make the person feel as if they are floating on air with it. Truely you have a wonderful talent. I love, love your card. She is adorable and now I can see that cartoon as well. Hugs, Lisa
