Pink and Green

(This is one of two posts today! If you're looking for the Kraftin' Kimmie May Release previews, just scroll up or click here! Also, don't forget to check in with The Town Scrapper later today for our weekly challenge...this week we've got a sketch by our guest Nikki Fairbairn!)

Good morning! Well we've made it through to another Friday. I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend!!

So, I'm guessing you showed up here because you would like to see a card?? lol! Well, I would hate to disappoint you! How about another Wags 'n Whiskers weekly challenge?? This week, the lovely Nikki chose a colour challenge. She would like to see you use PINK and GREEN. This is such a pretty colour combo, and just perfect for spring!

I chose to ink up one of the new May stamps for this week. This image is called "Summer Treat". I just love this sweet little image. I coloured the ice cream to look like chocolate mint...yum!! Now, I just adore little cards...I'm always drawn to them in stores! Not quite sure why, but I just think they are so fun. Perhaps because they are so easy to tuck into little gifts, lunchbags, backpacks, briefcases...what a great way to brighten somebody's day! So, I decided to make up a small shaped card with my Nesties. As there is not a lot of room for a fussy layout, this card came together quite easily. I used some pretty paper from Fancy Pants. Little Danni and Bella were cut out and pop dotted. The sentiment is actually from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps (Everyday Sentiments). (It was stamped on a little wooden heart covered with paper.)

Why not hop on over to the Wags 'n Whiskers blog to see what the rest of the talented DT has created this week to get you inspired?? I hope you plan to participate in the challenge this week, as you could be the lucky winner of a Wags 'n Whiskers stamp! To be eligible, you must use a Wags 'n Whiskers stamp on your project. You can purchase their stamps here. (Oh...and some of the Wags 'n Whiskers images are now available as digital stamps too!!)
