Wonderful Wednesday!

I am operating on yet another 2 hour delay due to the frigid temperatures!
Wednesday means it is time to share a new Kraftin' Kimmie creation.
This week, I am sharing Disco Donna.
This is the first time I colored using this particular skin combo.
 But I liked  it.
Outfit-V20,23,YG03,06,C1,3, YR61
I kept the card layout clean and simple.
Then, I added some stars and sequins to complete this creation.
This image was so fun to color.
Happy Wednesday, my friends!

So...what does one do on a cold winter Sunday?
Color, of course!
I LOVE Kraftin' Kimmie stamps!
They are soooo much fun to play and create with. I just ordered the new Let the Good Times Roll rubber stamp set. How will I ever explain to The Husband that purchase? 
Eh, explaining! It's an addiction that I can't break. 
 Today, I colored up a Kraftin' Kimmie image titled Godiva.
 Here is my creation using Godiva:
I colored her in using the following Copic colors:
Outfit- BG10,13,15, RV55,66
Horse-C1,3,5, Y18
The sentiment included reads: You're a Class Act!
I really wanted to add glitter Stickles to the horse's mane. I still might just because I can! 
There is my relaxing Sunday project. 
I am off to color some more images.
No school, I can take a nap and stay up late, too!
Happy Sunday, my friends!

Bambi Bubble Gum

One more submission to the Kraftin' Kimmie Krafty Guest Contest. The top 10 will be chosen and whittled down to three! Whittled...I like that word!
For this creation, I used the rubber stamp titled Bambi Bubble Gum
Here is my take:
The image was colored with Copic markers using the following colors:
Hair-Y21, YR14, E18
The paper comes from a 6x6 pad from Recollections called Valentine. 
The sparkle was added using Stickles and Donna Salazar's Fairy Dust Glitter: Mixed Berries. 
The sentiment reads: I chews you to be my friend!
Can't you just hear Bambi cracking her bubble gum? I could so see myself being friends with her. 
There it is. 
My Kraftin' Kimmie creation for today! 


Happy Tuesday!

Soooo...I couldn't wait to color up the newest image: Pure Joy.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this new digi stamp!!!
Here is my creation:
Isn't she wonderful?!?
I love it! And then...after I created this card...I had a moment of pure panic because my fellow Sassy Gals were all creating" Winter Blue" creations. Oh no...I said aloud to myself, how could I be so wrong!?!?
So, I said that this cutie is jumping for joy to chase the winter blues away!
There you have it. My take on this week's BLUE theme challenge.
I used Copic markers to color in the following colors:
The paper comes from a paper pad set from Fancy Pants-Park Bench.
The sentiment comes from a Kraftin'Kimmie Cheryl Alger's designs Together is Better
The sentiment reads: Love is in the air!
