Kraftin' Kimmie April Release Blog Hop...


Hey everyone...

Welcome to the

Kraftin' Kimmie April Release
Blog Hop!

Today Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is releasing their new April images!
Annie Rodrigue has gone medieval on us this month. As you may
have seen over the last few days with our krafty peeks, we have a princess,
a queen, a knight, a minstral and a dragon!!! Also we've got another
one of Annie's incredible paintings made into a stamp Marie Antoinette!
Also we have a super sweet image featuring Cindy and Mindy called,
"You Make Me Happy". You will get to checkout all the new stamps
throughout our fabulous blog hop today!

Now, if you have just arrived from beautiful Diana's Blog you are
definitely on the right track...But if by chance you just dropped in to
see what I have been up to, head on over to the
and start from the beginning...
Cause I tell you what YOU will NOT want to miss this!

For my Blog Hop card I decided to colour Annie's gorgeous
Marie Antoinette...


When I first started to colour in Marie I really didn't have a clue what I 
was going to end up with. But as I finished colouring her I really
didn't want to spoil the image by putting a lot of embellishments
and making the card too fussy...So I kept is pretty simple
and just used this gorgeous DP from The Paper Paperie 
called "Paper Girl" as a background add a bit 
of matching ribbon and used my Fiskas border punch
and some Kaiser Craft Pearls ...



Now you ALL know how much I LOVE to colour...But I have to tell you
this card took me a couple of hours to get the colours just right
* I used 5 different Prisma colours for Marie's dress alone!*
and even though I think it looks so much better IRL ...I loved every minute!!!


Now, I won't keep you much longer but I just 
a few things that you might want to know....

As you hop from blog to blog, be sure to leave a comment
at each and every stop because some lucky stamper will win
packages of stamps from the new release!!
And when you have done hoppin' be sure to head on over to the

Amazing colouring. I do not have the patience to spend 2 hours on an image which probably explains why yours are amazing and mine are not - lol!
