August SFYTT--Belinda Bones

Well, I survived the garage sale we had Friday and Saturday at Scrapper's Boutique...barely. I'm actually sore today, especially my legs! Man, there was so much stuff! I got a Zutter Round it All for $5, 3 brand new Tim Holtz Distress Inks for another $5 and a little acrylic star mini album for a dollar (like I need another one of those laying around here, but it was cute! I'm thinking something Christmas-y would be fun to use it for).

Anyway, today I have another SFYTT card to show ya'll using Jen's August Sketch For You To Try (above) and a brand spanking new stamp set from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, this month's sponsor! I made this a while back with big intentions on posting it sooner, but ya'll know how that goes sometimes! I haven't had any spare time to even blog, now that my mom is living with us. I'm praying that now that the girls are in school, I can get a more normal stamping schedule down--I NEED IT to relax!!

This adorable stamp is called Belinda Bones from Kraftin' Kimmie and was designed by Annie Rodrigue. I just love all her stuff! Belinda is dressed up in her girly Halloween costume with the bones all printed on the front. I used a little black Stickles on her skirt to make it sparkly. I spread it really thin with a toothpick to make them appear more random like sparkly tulle. The sentiment is stamped on vellum and I used the Easy Rosette and Apron CutUps from The Cat's Pajamas as my embellisments.

My oldest daughter, Shelbie (19) just found out she landed a job at a Baylor urgent care facility at Fieldhouse USA in Frisco, helping patients get checked in and dealing with broken bones and sports injuries, so this card is just for her! This is her first step into the medical field with the goal of becoming a nurse. I'm so proud of her!
