So sweet scallops

Hello my stamping friends... are you ready for the weekend?
If I didn't have work to go to I would be holing up indoors because it is FUH-REEZING here! As it is though, I will be bundling up and braving this arctic blast once again. Hopefully things are a bit warmer in your little corner of the world! :)

So today is my last challenge as a February Krafty Guest for Kraftin' Kimmie stamps and I had a total blast playing along each week. Boy did the month go by quickly or what!? Before I get to my card I just want to thank the wonderful miss Kimmie once again for inviting me to join the fun and giving me the opportunity to visit the fabulous fifties with this month's swell stamp release! ;)

The new challenge is all about using scallops in your card design... easy peasy! This adorable Judy was a natural choice because I think she has a sweetness about her with that coy pose, not to mention that delish milk shake she's sipping... I want some... LOL! And for some reason I seem to always associate scallops with a cutesy/sweet vibe too. Once again I used more papers from the fantastic OA Modern Homemaker line because they have a great retro look that coordinates perfectly with these new stamps. Why fight it when it is so right?! And because it is such a perfect fit I really didn't have to add a whole lot else to finish off the card, just a few pearls and the little Studio G ice cream dollar stamp and I was good to go. :)

Now it is your turn to pull out a scallop punch, die cut or border and join us for a chance at winning a cool Kraftin' Kimmie stamp! Be sure to use any of the KK range of stamps on your card and link up your creation over on the KK blog when you get it done. And most importantly... have fun with it!

Ok, time for me to make like a banana and split... mmmmmm banana splits... seriously I need to go eat some breakfast or something, LOL! Later!
