MAWTT Challenge 153 - 'Get Krafty'

Good Morning! Hope you are all doing ok...isn't time whizzing by... can't believe it's Wimbledon in a couple of weeks!!  it's a beautiful morning here in Manchester... perfect for tennis!! I really hope it lasts the day... and I really hope you can join us for this week's challenge over at..

Our hostess this week is the lovely Pami who has chosen the wonderful theme of ....

'Get Krafty'

So we want to see your creations using Kraft Cardstock somewhere on your project... it doesn't have to be a card... just as long as you use some Kraft. Kraft card is a neutral/brownish card as you can see in my card below... but if you don't have proper kraft card I'm sure you could find something very similar - I have used a Manilla envelope in the past...

We are sponsored this week by the fab Digi Darla

who is very kindly giving this week's winner 5 of their very cute digi images!!!

We were given some mega cute images to play with and I have used 'Crissy and Ice Cream' - isn't she sweet!! The gorgeous papers are called 'Pink Lemonade' by Jen Allyson. I just thought they were perfect for this image and with the Kraft. Quite a simple layout and not too many embellies because I wanted to post it...

I've coloured Crissy with Promarkers and added some Star Dust Stickles to Ice Cream!

I also made this little matching bookmark..using corner of envelope...

Hope you like my creations this week... and please do pop on over to MAWTT for more details of the Challenge and to see my Teamies gorgeous projects!!! and don't forget to check if you were a winner...
