No sentiment!

Hello, Hello!!! Happy Monday!! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! i surely did!! had a blast at the 60th Anniversary Celebration for Ben Franklin Crafts Hawaii in Kahului this past saturday, hanging out with Joy and doing make n' takes and demos with everyone... awesome to see the customer support come out and support a local business and i must have done something right with my demo because when it was my turn to go shopping, i noticed that the punch i was demo-ing was out of stock (and the rack was full the day before)! all in all it was a wonderful celebration and i was extremely happy to be a part of it!! Cheers to many more BFC!!! but now i think after all the late nights and fun, i'm finally catching the "bug".... hope it doesn't stay too long! there is still so much prep work for the upcoming craft fair this coming weekend and i'm afraid to say i'm under the weather, blah...

onto some more good news... new challenge at Lollipop Crafts and this week for Challenge #53 we want you to create a CARD with NO SENTIMENT!! easy right?! this is a specific challenge now, must be a CARD and have NO SENTIMENT on it... we all could use some all around occasion cards... just want to take a moment and THANK everyone that comes out to join our weekly challenges... the teams strive to offer you the best and most fun challenges and we just love seeing the support from our players and supporters... so THANK YOU very much!!

Our fabulous sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish, offering cute designs for any occasion and they are offering up a wonderful prize!! Check out all the details on the LC blog... there will also be a spotlight on this company on Thursday on the LC blog with some yummy eye candy from the T Team... don't miss out on that!

this is my creation for this week's challenge... as much as possible i like to include a sentiment so this was very much a "challenge" for me... haha! i'm starting to get around to using release #2 of Sister Stamps and on my card today i'm featuring Yoko... these images are so so so ADORABLE.... haven't heard about this new line yet?? check out their blog here! you will fall in love with these cuties! as i was saying, i'm working on release #2 and they are already gearing up for release #4!! can you tell me i'm so behind time?! hehe... being a procrastinator AND feeling under the weather, i was extremely stumped on what to do for the challenge... taking it very simple, i used a piece of yuzen paper and some pretty brown and gold shimmery paper which i embossed half of the brown paper with SU!'s square lattice folder for texture... the printed yuzen paper covers the other half... i used some twine to accent the DP side of the card and secured the ends together by tying a bow with a little pink button... from the picture you can see a shadow from the crane... that's because i actually popped the crane out with pop-up dots... a little 3D effect... do you like?!

rules on how to go about playing with us can be found on the LC blog... catch a glimpse at the prize for this challenge, get the deets on the challenge, fall in love with the NO SENTIMENT creations from the A Team and be inspired to create and link up with us!! Thank you for dropping by!! i'll be back a later today with a special birthday card!! see you soon!

  4. This is just beautiful Kris! I love the yuzen and embossed papers you used and your image is just adorable. Beautiful card and layout! Take care, hope you feel better soon!

  5. Sorry that you are not feeling well. I will continue to pray for you. Even though you aren't feeling well, you still did a good job in making the Asian card with one of the Sister Stamps on it. I especially like how you colors her hair.
