Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!!!

Its Saturday and that means another fun Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge! Today the Krafty Hostess is one of my very best friends MELANIE!!!
She wants you to:


I chose to REDUCE the amount of paper, glue, ribbon, buttons etc...that I usually use on my card! Turned out pretty clean and simple but it makes for a sweet little friendship card! I used one of the newly released stamps STRIPES the Zebra designed by artist Crissy Armstrong. I used a piece of scrap Becket Expression paper that was sitting on my desk and folded it in half to make a card. I stamped Stripes with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink then coloured him in with my copics and added some grass and shading with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I also used my scor pal to make a little frame around the edges. The button I've had in my stash for years, perfect time to pull it out!

So make sure you play along with us this week, if you enter your card you will be in the running for the brand new stamp 'Stella Strawberry' as seen on Melanie's Gorgeous creation, wait till you see what she came up with, its to die for!!!!!

Now check out how the rest of the amazing Krafty Girls did some recycling on their cards!

Have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
