Have a Sizzlin’ Birthday

Time for a challenge with Kraftin Kimmie Stamps!  This week I am the hostess with the mostest (lol) and I am challenging everyone to make a Mostly Monochromatic card or project.  If you’d like to play along, you can find the details HERE on the Krafty Blog.  If you DO play along, be sure to link your creation there on the Krafty Blog for your chance to win a free Lounging Miles stamp as I’ve used here.  Also, this week’s challenge will run for two weeks instead of one as SOME of us will be attending CHA.  (Unfortunately, I am not one of them.  I’m only a wee bit jealous…)  So play as many times as you’d like.  The winner will be announced Saturday, August 7th.

Have a Sizzlin’ Birthday


With the 90+ degrees we’ve had here (we have a heat index of 110 to 115 today–what?!), we’re all sizzlin’.  It has been NAS-TEEEE!  Nothing like going to the mailbox (which is NOT far) and coming back drenched.

Anyway, I made this card for my brother’s birthday.  I hope he likes it.

KKHASSCUI created the sentiment by combining one part Kimmie’s Beachy Sentiments/one part Everyday Sentiments

After coloring Miles with markers, I paper-pieced his shorts and popped up his little sunglasses. 

You can find more DT samples of Mostly Monochromatic on the Krafty Blog.  I hope you’ll play along!  🙂

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
