Trying out for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

Happy Wednesday! And since today is Veteran's Day, it's doubly happy. I come from a military family and although we lost dad a few years ago to cancer, this day is still a great honor for me and all it represents. :::: waving to my brother and his wife, still in the Army in Germany :::::

And this little Kraftin' Kimmie set was my "application" for a guest designer spot (gulp!) I needed to sent a small card for my (above mentioned) SIL, Susan, for a birthday coming up and for their 3 year old adopted German shepared, Emma, which will be filled with treats :) So I brought out Francesca - who is just delightful! I paired it with some My Mind's Eye paper & embellies. I sponged around the frame of the image and added a KK sentiment as well. For the small tin, I found that at the Dollar Tree and did some hodge-podge covering with matching DSP, Daisy stamp, and lotsa ribbons!

Thanks for looking! This was tons of fun for me. I always tells my children to try their best and reach for the stars and one of the best joys in life for me is try to be a good example for them (and put my words to action, lol!)

May your day bring you lots of blessings today and thank you to all the Veteran's! We <3 href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_J5FWniBgDSE/SvrCv0EOSAI/AAAAAAAABac/Ts2W0m_GeIs/s1600-h/DSC00092.JPG">
