For all my fellow bookworms! (Kraftin' Kimmie Sneak Peeks Day 4!)

Good morning and welcome to another round of sneak peeks as well as our weekly challenge! We're making the challenge super simple this week..."Anything Goes"! So you've got carte blanche for creating. :)  Our hostess is the talented Jenny, so if you participate in the challenge and use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp on your project, you will be eligible to win the stamp seen on her gorgeous card today!

The Krafty Girls have all used the brand new January stamps designed by Annie Rodrigue for today's challenge. You are going to LOVE these stamps!! Annie has brought us six Geeks and Nerds, lol. Let's face it, some of us march to our own beat, your's truly definitely included!

I used one of the characters I can completely identify with, the Bookworm! I have been an avid reader for as long as I can remember.  I devour them...if it's a captivating story, I have a really difficult time putting a book down. I've been know to read into the wee hours of the morning just to finish off a story. I can't help myself. :) The papers are an assortment of older sheets from a bin of scraps. The sentiment (which I LOVE!) comes with this stamp. The vines are cut with a Memory Box Die and the upper corner embellishments are Classic Corners Dies from SCACD.





We'd love to have you play along with the Anything Goes challenge this week...don't forget to use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp so you are eligible to win the stamps seen on Jenny's awesome creation this week!

BLOG CANDY: Kimmie will be choosing two lucky winners who will each win three of the new January stamps by Annie! All you need to do is hop around to visit all the Krafty Girls sharing sneak peeks today and leave comments on their blogs. Here's the list:

Blessings,

 Melanie

Argh. I think I might have closed my box before publishing.

So, if this is a duplicate, chalk it up to absent-mindedness on my part (or premature senility).

As an avid reader, I love the stamp and sentiment.

As always, your coloring blows me away. Great design too!

Fabulous card!
