Pink it Up!

Welcome to another fabulous challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Today, our Princess to see you Pink it Up!

This definately wasn't a hard one for me. I looove PINK!

Today I used Calliope the Mermaid and her cute little 8 legged friend! She is now available to purchase individually at Kraftin' Kimmie Store. She also comes with 3 bonus accessory stamps! Awesome! Swing by and pick yours up today!

I coloured them on Beckett Expression paper with my copics and added lots and lots of glitter! I started to cut out the image so I could pop it onto a card and about half way through I thought 'what the heck was I thinking?'. It was pretty labour intensive (well for me anyway)...trying not to snip off octopus legs or mermaid hands etc...but I got through with some a million snips and tiny pop dots later...voila...ready to put on a card!

Now lets talk about the card. I'm not very happy with the way it turned out...I started to stitch around the edges and ended up with some weird funky looking stitch...I tried to fix my tension on my machine and nothing was working so I had to go with it! I wasn't starting over!!! Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong? I think I have to pull out my ancient heavy clunker of a machine which works awesome...its just so big and heavy oh and did I mention it's really old? Those ones are built the best though....The one I am using now is a cheapy from Zellers and now I know why it was a cheapy...hehe, that'll learn me! haha!

So make sure you play along with us this week. If you upload your card HERE you'll be eligible to win the stamp Nerissa that Krafty Girl Andrea used on her beautiful card! Check it out!

Make sure you take a look at what the awesome Krafty Girls have to show you! You'll be in pink mode for sure!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!
