Stamp Simply #108 - Krafty Black

WOW ... is it Friday again all ready!! I tell you I don't know where the time is going ... but it sure is in a hurry to get there, LOL!!!




One of my favorite weekly challenges is the Stamp Simply Challenge hosted by the one and only Sharon Johnson! Sharon comes up with some wonderful challenge ideas and her SIMPLE creations are magnificient!!! If you've never played along in one of Sharon's challenges, now's the time ... hope on over and check out all the details. Today we are using a color I RARELY use ... but I hear it is the "new white" ... and that is KRAFT! We are also to use black in our creation so this is what I've come up with.




Since this challenge is "Stamp Simply" ... I really tried to keep it simple today. I don't even OWN kraft paper so I used a color I thought came close. Guess I'll have to make a purchase ... just for times like this, LOL!! My sentiment is from JustRite and my oval was cut using the Nestabilities Classic Oval dies. My ribbon is actually from last years holiday ribbon stash and is from Michaels. The black pearls are Kaiser and I took the liberty to color in the heart using a PrismaColor Marker.




Thanks so much for stopping by today and PLEASE check out this challenge ... it's always great fun and her design team creates AWESOME works of art that will totally inspire you! Have a great weekend everyone ... I'm off to Toledo, OH tomorrow morning with my daughter & granddaughter to watch the dancers from Season 5 of "So You Think You Can Dance" ... can't wait, what fun!!
