Got Vellum? SS Blog Challenge

 So I got this new stamp set at Hobby Lobby for 30% off! It's by My Sentiments Exactly and I think it's so cute! Admittedly I am not that into the birds and owls and such but I HAD to have this one! The bird is attached to the swirlies and all those sentiments - they fit perfectly above the swirl! How cool is that?!
As mentioned in an earlier post this week is the Dare to Get Dirty week on SCS! This card is for Laurie's Got Vellum? challenge. I live vellum but don't use it NEAR enough! I love the softness it give to a project! For my color combo I turned to Serendipity Scrapbooks - the latest blog challenge is to use someone's blog layout/colors whatever and create a project with it! I went through everyone on the list and came up with two I thought would be neat to base a card on. The one I chose for this particular card is Chelle's blog check it out here! Do you see the colors? See the white flowers? This card was inspired by Chelle's blog for sure! 
This is a simple card but with some unique details. I love how the embossing goes across the layers - I used my Versamark PEN to draw the stems! *Note* if you have an embossing buddy - use it! If you don't - get one and use it! I have one and forget to use it then spend 40 minutes editing my picture in Photoshop! I used white brads to attach the vellum to my CS. This was really fun! The Dare to get Dirty challenges will be going on all week! I will have lots to catch up on when we get back! My girl Lauren (mytime) posts her challenge on Wednesday - I can't wait to see what hers is! Hopefully you can join in and do a challenge or two! They are so much fun!

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
