Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge #22 - An Eyelet Here, And Eyelet There...

Hey Everyone...
Hope your weekend has started off exactly how
you wanted it to!!

Being the weekend means it's time for another

Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge

And this week the super talented
(and one of my idols)
has chosen this week theme,
Which is...

An Eyelet Here, An Eyelet There...

Yes, Michele wants us to use Eyelets on out cards....

Holy CRAP?!! Do I have any eyelets?????
Ummmm I think I do...
down in the deep recesses of my craft supplies!!

I can't tell you the last time I used an eyelet on one of
my cards...That is...Well, just WRONG!!
I used to use them ALL the time...
Maybe this is Michele's way of telling us to think outside
the box...

enough panicking!!!
Here is what I came up with...

For this challenge I decided to colour Suzette from the
March Stamp Release since I didn't
get round to it during the week.
I kept this card really simple as Suzette is rather a
large stamp and I really
wanted her to be the main focus..

I really had no idea how I was going to use the eyelets
on my card until I saw acard by the very talented Lori Boyd
and "Borrowed" her idea of threading a ribbon
through and tying a knot at the side...

Of course I coloured Suzette in with my Prisma's
and I used "When in Doubt Dance"
for the sentiment on the front of the card...

Then I decorated the inside with the sentiment that comes
with Suzette when you buy her
" Yes You Can-Can!"

Ok, that's it for me.
If you would like to play along with this weeks challenge
first head on over to the

Kraftin Kimmie Challenge Blog

stunning and beautiful creations that the

Oh and one more important note!
