Hoop Hoop Hooray!

I would like to start off by saying that I am so very excited to have found out today that I have the opportunity to be an upcoming guest designer with the amazing Kratin' Kimmie stamps. I think I actually squealed with delight (at work) when I saw the announcement on the blog today.

I would like to say congratulations to all of the talented top 10 that have been given this fabulous opportunity.

This card is my 4th entry for the 5 different Krafty Bowl Challenges that started on Sunday and close tomorrow (Friday). I'm  not sure that I am going to be able to finish the last one, but I am going to try.

Challenge # 4 is "Something New".

For my card I used a Cheryl Alger design for Kraftin' Kimmie from the set called "Lulu on the Move". Although this is not a new set to Kraftin' Kimmie, it is a new set to my collection. I picked it up the other week as one of Kimmie's great Frugal Friday deals.

The paper is also one of my newer 6x6 purchases that I have been using a lot. It's called "Cool Summer" by Carta Bella. These colours are so fun and vibrant and the thought of summer is so much better than what I am currently looking at outside my window (which is snow, snow and more snow).

My close up picture of Lulu is a bit off. I am still working on my set up for the card and flash to get these shots right. I will figure it soon. Lulu is coloured with Copic Markers. I did add some of my Wink of Stella glitter to the hula hoop and her hair baubles.

Inside the card I added some of the Carta Bella paper and used a sentiment from the Stampendous set called "Birthday Wish".

Thank you for taking the time to view my card. Please come back soon.
