A Kraftin' Kimmie Sketch Challenge!(and the Blog Candy winner!!)

Good morning friends! Thanks so much for all those who entered my blog candy last week. I'm sure you're all anxious to know who the winner is, so I won't keep you in suspense any longer. The winner is...

Congrats! I know you will absolutely love your new Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! I'll be contacting you by email soon for your information and then I can get these stamps in the mail!

Ok, on to our weekly challenge. Our lovely Krafty Girl Michele Boyer has created a fantastic sketch for you this week...I LOVE a great sketch! I pulled out Snow White and paired her up with some of my favourite new Capella paper from Basic Grey. The last time I coloured Snow White, I used the traditional Disney colours. So this time, I wanted to give her a bit of a makeover, :). She is now a beautiful brunette clad in a lovely green gown. The sentiment comes with another Kraftin' Kimmie stamp called "Let's Do Lunch". I thought it was just perfect for Snow White!

Copics: Skin E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20 Hair: E50, E31, E33, E35, E37, E59 Clothes: G20, G82, G85, G99, E50, E41, E42, E43, E47

Here's a look at Michele's sketch:
