This Aint Kansas Toto



TGIF!!!!!  Thank You Mother of sweet Karma, I am off this weekend and Soooo ready for it.  Between the studying and stress of the class and the short handed at work, I am ready for a couple days off!  Do you have any weekend plans?  I do!  Resting and Scrapping and hanging out with my guys....oh and entertaining the cub scout troop for our Den meeting on Saturday, but they are easy.  Plenty of Lego's and toys for a crowd of boys around here.  lol. 

I made this for the Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration Friday.    Love this little Kraftin Kimmie Dorothy and it was the perfect chance to get her inky.  You can find Dorothy in the Loves Rubberstamps Store along with a multitude of other goodies, like This amazing MFT's Faux Crochet Border die-namic!  And the fishtail die-namic for the yellow flag tail.  Whoot!!!  Let's go shopping.  While you are over at the Loves Rubberstamps store, check out our challenge, you could win free stamps!!!  And sometimes, Laura is in the mood to throw in some bonus prizes. 

I went to the local scrappy store today and picked up Lilybee design's Persnickety.  And decided I would go ahead and not hoard it this time, lol.  So that is the dp I used, coupled with a black and yellow S.U. card stock.  I used my spellbinder circles to cut her out.  I paper pieced her dress and colored right onto the paper with my BG72, I also used some SU pearls and colored those as well with my BG72.  I used an embossing folder for the dots.  Cuttlebug I think.

Copic List: Face/skin: E21, E00, E000, E0000, E93, Hair: E27, E25, E13, E41, Ground: W2, W0, Toto: W4, W2. Others: B72, E33, E31, E35, BG000, BG0000, BG2. 

I am going to enter this into this weeks Kraftin Kimmie Challenge to Paper Piece. 
I am also using Karen's sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 167.

Do you know that I just now figured out how to make my pictures bigger on blogger? lol.  Just click on it and then it gave me options.....ohhhhhh, lol.   I love discovering new stuff. 

Thanks for Looking and for your kind Comments!

Holly

Hi Holly, glad to see you come by my blog. I don't see you much on SCS. I guess we're all into our own things..DT's and such. I don't get to do many challenges on SCS...usually just the QFTD.

Hope all is going well with you.

Your card is soooo adorable. I see Nancy is lovin' it, too.
