Kraft is Kool

I like using kraft paper and embellishments.  I found a couple of challenges where I could share a kraft card so I decided to use some and enter.  I like the look of kraft (which is shabby and rough) along side soft and pretty pattern papers.  This was a scrap of paper I had left from the gorgeous Girls' Paperie collection.  I'm almost completely out of these papers and I can't find more of them ANYWHERE.  It's a nice combination, I thought.  The sentiment is from Verve Rubber Stamps.
These are the challenges I found where I can share this card.
The Kraft Journal Challenge Blog - Felt, Twine or Burlap - I used baker's twine, kraft paper and a Tim Holtz Journaling Ticket
Paper Playtime Challenges - Challenge #12 - Anything Goes
Word Art Wednesday - Challenge #84 - Anything Goes
Some of you have left me such nice comments.  Please know that I really do appreciate it.

Fun in My Craft Room

There's nothing as fun for me as a day in my Craft Room.  This is actually a portion of the basement that I've made into a crafty area, but it's still my little spot and I love every minute I get to spend there.  I had some time today and made this little card.

These are the challenges where I want to share my card.
Basic Grey Challenge Blog- Challenge #96 - Doilies - I used a Martha Stewart doily that I bought at Michael's.  I also used two pattern papers from the Basic Grey Pheobe line (an older Basic Grey line) and the letter stickers are Basic Grey LilyKate collection.

Come and Get It Challenges - Sketch Challenge - I really like this sketch and had fun following it!

I wish the weekend could last longer.  I'm not quite ready to go back to work tomorrow, but...oh well!  I'm already looking forward to next weekend.  How about you!?
Have a great week, and thank you very much for stopping by my blog.  By the way, I NEED FOLLOWERS and will follow anyone who follows me.
I added this blog badge to my side-bar because I'm super excited about their give-away, upcoming blog hop, and new June stamp and die-cut release.  I just thought I'd share it here in case you want to check it out.  It's over at My Craft Spot by Kimberly.

Just Because

You know how sometimes you just want to give someone a card "just because"?  Well, that's how I felt this week.  I have a friend who I just felt needed a "pick-me-up" and so I made her this card just to let her know that I was thinking about her.
The sentiment turned out a little bit fuzzy in my photo, but it says "Just Because", and it's from Paper Sweeties.  I got a few of their super cute stamps from an on-line friend, and I hope to eventually get some more.  They have really cute paper doll type stamps, sweet sentiments (like this one), darling images, and fluffy seam binding (which I don't own, but LOVE).

Simon Says Stamp & Show Vintage Challenge Blog - Brought To You By the Letter S - For the letter "S", I used simple STRIPS of patterned paper for the base of my card.  I hope that qualifies.
I'm still hoping to get some new followers on my blog - if you're interested in following me, I'd be happy to follow your blog too!!
