My First Paper Nest Dolls Challenge!

Hey there stampers, and welcome to my blog!!

Today is my first time posting as a challenge team member for the Paper Nest Dolls challenge team, and I am super excited...mostly because I love their SUPER CUTE images!! Also, their challenges are ANYTHING GOES, so what more can you ask for?


I adore this Heart Key image from them, and used it to create this fun Valentine card. I used a sentiment from The Cat's Pajamas to go along with it, and the new Hearts CutUps from there as well. My ribbon is from May Art(gingham) and MFT, and I used and MFT button(Both in Bubblegum), some Michael's brads, a spiral clip, and simple silver heart charm.

Hi everyone! It's time for another Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps challenge! This week's challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie is to use 3 different patterned papers....which I usually do anyway, so it wasn't much of a challenge for me....which I love, lol!


This week I have paired out challenge with another fun challenge over at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog, to make a card that is "down under", so I chose an under the sea sort of theme. I used my Shell Me A Story set, and paired it with a couple of fun dies from MFT, some MFT ribbon, and some Michael's brads.

Thinking of Popcorn, Disney, and My Friends....

Hi everyone! Welcome to another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
This week's challenge is a Thinking of You challenge, and I automatically thought of one of my best friends, Ashley. Ashley just moved to California, and although I moved away from her first, she moved way farther, and to be honest....I'm a bit more than sad about it. She was my rock when I needed one, the place where I ran when I needed to be saved, and the voice of reason in my head when I was being an idiot. She also turned me into a comic book heroine, so I mean, really....she's amazing. 

So, Ashley and I have seen so many movies together, and most of them are Disney....ok, maybe not most, but yeah..maybe they are. What can we say, we LOVE DISNEY!!! When we released the new The Beast set(as well as Belle), I immediately thought of Ashley because that happens to be her favorite of all the princess movies....she's a Belle girl.  Now, Pippa Popcorn is now retired(sorry kids), but the sentiment that I used is from The Beast, which you can still get!!  I paired them with some Echo Park paper(circus themed, but look at that popcorn paper....it's perfect!), and cardstock from both MFT and SU. That cute clothespin I used was sent to me from my friend Anita....so sweet!
We always enjoy your creations so be sure to submit them so you can have a chance to WIN a $20 gift card to the Shop!! Show us your stuff!! In keeping in line with the rest of our challenges (Wonderful Wednesday and our NEW Krafty Scrappy Challenge), we will be drawing one winner per month from all Saturday Challenge entries to win a $20 gift card!!

This shadow box was a gift I created for my daddy for Christmas using one of Becky's Beautiful Sets, Sweet Summer Sentiments. My family has a new summer tradition...a corn hole tournament. At that tournament, my aunt took some pictures of my family together, minus my adorable nephews who were with their dad, and the best picture I have seen of my Dad and brother since my brother Bud graduated high school. My Dad always says how he doesn't want gifts, but one like this...well, he can't tell me no to!!

Well, I gave you all the details above, so all you have left to do is make a creation and link it up!! Hope to see you playing along!! Happy stamping!!
