Let's get crafty with Kraft - Crazy 4 Challenges #31

Mornin', peeps! Oh, my, but yesterday was a spectacular day here in South Central Virginia and today promises to be another one. We did some yard work and there's much more to be done so we'll be back outside in the sun and fresh air again today. But first, I have some goodies for you :) It's Crazy 4 Challenges day, and this month's host is Lynda, who is challenging us to use Kraft. SO not a challenge for me, LOL, as I do love it. Our sponsor this week is The Greeting Farm and you can find out more at the C4C blog.



Now, for my card. Notice the little play on words--crafty and Krafty? I feel so clever ;-) I was itching to use this PTI set that had never seen ink so I dragged it out and inked it up. I stamped the little button jar from Studio Style on Stampers Select White card stock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with Copic markers. Then I cut/embossed it and its mats with Classic Circle and Scalloped Circle Nestabilities in Hawaiian Shores and Dark Chocolate--I lOVE that combination!! Then I stamped a piece of Hawaiian Shores with Dark Chocolate (looks black but I promise it's Dark Chocolate) using Polka Dot Basics II. Then I stamped the sentiment on another piece of Stampers Select White with Dark Chocolate and added buttons. I'm using Taylor's sketch #107 for my layout. I couldn't pass up a sketch encouraging this many buttons, LOL!

NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of my crazy girls...er, I mean the Crazy 4 Challenges team ;-)
THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C31.

Thanks so much for dropping in today! A little bit later, I'll have the first MFT teaser for the April release so c'mon back!
