Some Kraftin Kimmie fun...

Hello my stampin' peeps!

I've got some fun and exciting things to share on this fine Saturday... which is that the fabulous Kimmie, of Kraftin Kimmie Stamps, has invited me to be a Krafty Guest for the month of February! Now it's no secret that that I've been a fan of these crazy cuties for quite some time so I leapt at the chance to play along with them this month. :)

And I'm kickin' off this fun stint with Saturday challenge #64... Seeing Red! Valentine's Day is right around the corner making this is the perfect color to create a card with right now, don'cha think? As soon as Kimmie told me what the challenge was I knew that sweet Marina, with her kissy kissy lips, would be the perfect stamp to use for a Valentine with loads of personality.
I stayed with a pretty monochromatic color scheme, pulling all of the shades of red from the mosaic (or scaly mermaid tail) looking paper that I used in the background. I know that red might not be the first color that comes to mind when I imagine a mermaid but I think she makes for a perfectly delightful little under-the-sea cupid. ;)

Now it's your turn to pull out a Kraftin Kimmie stamp and play along in this week's challenge. As always there is a fab stamp prize up for grabs so don't miss out on the fun! Then be sure to check back later in the week for the new KK February stamp previews to begin! :)
