My last Kraftin' Kimmie stamps Design Team post....


This week's KKS challenge is to 'cut it out' and use paper piecing on your KKS image. I used Carole for my card with her super cute running gear. I would like to think it is from LuLu Lemon- just because one day I would love to have some schnazzy gear from there. I paper pieced both her shirt and her capris and added some copics to the paper just to add some dimension. I am more than a little pleased with myself because I made this card using older scraps of paper from a card kit that I found in my massive pile of scraps. I have been forcing myself to use some of my older supplies...so that I can justify getting more new ones of course! hee hee. I made her cheeks really rosy due to her brisk run. If I was colouring my face while running it of course would be completely beet red hee hee. For more details on this week's challenge and more lovely eye candy don't forget you can pop on over to the KKS blog for all you'll need.

Now on to my attention grabbing title of this post. I want to thank Kimmie and all the Krafty Girls for such an amazing time on the KKS Design Team. I have a busy next few months ahead of me and needed to pare down my responsibilities so that I can focus on my family and the craziness ahead. It was a difficult decision and I still wonder if I made the right one. It will be hard leaving such a fun caring group of talented ladies and I am sure we will still keep in touch. I have been blessed to build some great friendships and support systems with this group that I will always treasure. Of course you will still see KKS creations on my bloggy- I absolutely LOVE KKS stamps and will still be inking them up with glee month after month.

So raise your mug of tea with me and say 'Cheers' to some of the best and most talented ladies I have ever had the pleasure of getting to know.

I love this card, Andrea!! You are really going out with a bang as I think this is one of your best. Great paper piecing and fabulous layout, it all works so well.
I wish you the very best and am praying for you as I always have (really), may all this legal nonsense come to a satisfactory end and take away all the stress it involves!!

Your card today is awesome!! I love the colour combo on the papers you used!!
