Wanna Cuddle?


Hello my crafty pals!

How was your weekend? 
Mine was okay, but hubs took on a second job and will now be gone on the weekends too...so basically he will be working all week long. I got some crafty time in though, so that's always a plus! I actually haven't been feeling that great lately...besides my back giving me problems and getting use to new medication, I recently found out the pain I've been having in my foot is a heel spur. It's been so painful to hobble along on my foot, lol. Doc gave me some exercises to try out to possibly relieve some of the pain...not helping. So that has set me back some on working out. Hoping I'll feel better soon. But crafting has been a great distraction!

~~~~~~~~~~♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥~~~~~~~~~~

So onto a new card to share today! I used another Kraftin Kimmie stamp....LOVE my Kimmie stamps!


I should mention, I was inspired by a beautiful sketch from "Stamps & Fun = Creativity". I didn't quite make it to enter the challenge for this sketch, but thought I would share it anyways!


The Kimmie stamp I used today, her name is "Jayne" and came with an adorable sentiment. She is sadly a retired stamp...I have procrastinated so long in inking her up. But you can still find many great stamps in the Kraftin Kimmie shop HERE!


I broke out my embossing folders again on this one...they've been so neglected lately lol. Love the way the bow turned out on this one...sometimes they turn out and sometimes they don't, lol. The colors matched perfectly! And of course some gorgeous flowers, pearls and lace trim to top everything off!
