Happy Hump day everyone! Hope your week has been wonderful! Here is a card I made using the sketch from CAARDvarks's first challenge of the year. I have to say, this sketch really kicked my butt... It took me a very loooooong time to come up with this card...

This cute lady is Piper from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. Isn't she cute? I adore her outfit, especially that big puffy skirt! =) I think this card also qualifies for the "Heavy Metal" challenge over at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog. I have had these itty-bitty brads from Close To My Heart in my stash for a little while and finally got to use them.

The challenge over at Quixotic Challenges is "Hot Chocolate" and I think Piper is drinking hot chocolate! =) Hopefully I am in time for this challenge.

Special thanks to the sweetest Donna for this yummy Early Bird Mini Deck pp!! I love it and you know I love ya, girl!! =)

That's it for today. I am hoping to see you back here tomorrow!

Thanks for stopping by!

Edited: Okay, I missed the Quixotic challenge by 24 minutes... =(
