Two, Two, Two Challenges in one- Kraftin' Kimmie and Crazy4Challenges

What fun! Two, Two, Two Challenges in one!!! Kraftin' Kimmie is our sponsor over at Crazy4Challenges for the month of December. Our Superdeduper Hostess Frances, came up with a very fun easel card challenge for us this week and Kimmie is giving away three Kimmie Stamps to one of our random players!!! What more could you ask for?

One more tidbit of EXCITING EXCITING news!!!! Michelle Boyer is now officially a Krafty Girl......was there any doubt about it EVER?? Well now she's a Craftin' Kimmie Girl! I was SO hoping that she would join us full time on the Design Team as I LOVE LOVE LOVE her Schtuff!

The second Challenge, the weekly Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge is hosted by the oh so talented Niki Estes, who challenged us to use stitching on our cards this week. My sewing machine has been about as ornery as a bear with a sore paw lately, thus faux stitching for me this week!

Make sure you visit Niki's blog, because the image that she uses for her project could be yours (well, Kimmie will send you a new one of course!) just for playing along!

Now, about my card! I used Prismacolor pencils to colour sweet Antoinette and Sprinkled some sugary glitter onto the white areas to give her a little pizzaz!!! Paper is from FIGGY Pudding Basic Grey. See the Faux Stitching? Did that with white gel pen.

To get the directions for the easel card, please head on over to the C4C Blog where Frances has kindly posted the links to the directions!

Don't forget to check out the C4C girls cards this week, they're truly scrumptious.......also take a peek at the Krafty Girls Sites, you may find some more cool easel cards!

To get the down and dirty for either challenge, head over to the Kraftin' Kimmie and C4C blogs!

Happy Stamping!
