Kraft on Kraft - Me Likey....

Hi everyone,

This is my 2nd post of the day because I've been enjoying my craft corner.  I've been working on some DT projects to share this week.  I'm super disappointed that my postman didn't bring my package of an item I'm using for my TMS card this week.  I do hope it comes on Monday because I want to show off what our sponsor has to offer.  Anyway... let me show you one that I made today, just because I wanted to make a card for no other reasons than to make it with a couple of challenges.


There is so much Valentine's Day going on in my craft corner, I swear I'm going to start throwing up hearts.  Sorry to put it like that, but everyone knows Valentine's Day is not my thing.  So it was surprising that I reached for a heart punch and saying.  But it worked for me.  Probably because this card, even though it could be given as a Valentine's Day card, I think it just says to someone how they've touched you through a random act of kindness.

So this card is inspired by, well, me.  I made a suggestion over at The Kraft Journal for a challenge to be all Kraft.  Afterall, a WOW card (white on white) seems to be pretty popular, why not a kraft on kraft?  I haven't been over at The Kraft Journal in awhile (sad face) so I went over there today and guess what!  It's my challenge suggestion.  I have to play, right?  And I'm getting this in under the wire.

We also know that I can't make a card without a sketch, so I used the sketch from Unscripted Sketches and put my own twist on it.  Look!  I love this....


The card started out another way and I hated it.  So I chopped it off and came up with this.  I am very happy with it.  I hope you like it, too.

Wow! This is fabulous. For someone who doesn't like making Valentine's Day cards, you knocked this challenge clean out of the ball park. Seriously, every single element (both design and execution) is perfect. You totally rocked this week's Unscripted Sketch. Thanks for join us this week :)
