More Kraftin Kimmie peeks!

Hiya sweeties!

Today we at Kraftin Kimmie stamps are traveling back in time to the fab 50's for our previews. Annie's new girls are neat-o, seriously... who doesn't love a bouffant hair-do, high heels and some horn-rimmed glasses! ;)

My preview card features Patsy and I think she is just the bee's knees! She's all decked out in her best dress and ready to go down to the soda shop on a Friday night. Patsy loves the new rock 'n roll music so I wouldn't be surprised to see her sneak off to the sock hop with some of her friends afterwards... LOL!

When I saw the 50's theme I knew right away that I wanted to use the October Afternoon Modern Homemaker papers and goodies to really set the perfect scene for miss Patsy and they didn't disappoint. But when it came time to the final embellishing I wanted to add some little music notes coming out of the radio... I searched and searched but no where in my stash were there any music notes! What to do, what to do? Finally I looked in my pearl drawer and an idea struck... I could use some black pearls and then finish off the look I wanted by drawing in some lines with a black pen. Yeah, problem solved! :)

Ok, so to see the rest of today's sneak peeks head on over to the Kraftin Kimmie blog for a complete list of all the Krafty Gals' blogs... total eye candy! And all of the new stamps will be available on Sunday the 13th!

Oh Amy, she is the the Bee's Knees! I just love her color pallet...heehee she is really going to make heads turn we she gets to the soda fountain. I must say. :O) Seriously, I would be so happy to climb into your card. I would have made the perfect little house wife/home maker. Of course I would have to have my Copics and stamps with me so that once I got the kiddies off to school kissed my hubby bye and cleaned the house I could be creative. Hope you have a wonderful Friday. Hugs, Lisa
