CHAPTER 26: Sizing Up a Sketch (using Kraftin' Kimmie stamps!)

Hey everyone!

Thank you so much for scrollin' down to be here with me while I am still PINCHING myself here in Wonderland that I'm a Guest Krafty Girl for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Today is the Kraftin' Kimmie Saturday challenge and boy is this challenge MADE FOR ME or what?   The Challenge is to use Bling, Scallops, and Buttons.  Are you kidding?  E-HEM.  DONE. :)  Pretty much l/2 my cards contain those, right?  Be sure to check out the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps blog for lots of Krafty samples and all the info on the challenge! 

And don't forget to visit the blogs of the Kraftin' POWERHOUSES that I am honored to be guesting along side!  Their links are on my sidebar ------->  GO!  Visit!  Oooh and Ahhh!  :)

Thanks again to Kim for having the faith in me to have asked.  This month is going to be SO. MUCH. FUN :)

Now, I put this little card together not only following the recipe for the Kraftin' Kimmie challenge but today we are "Sizing up a SKETCH" by Jen:

CHAPTER 26: Sizing up a SKETCH:

"The Caterpillar was the first to speak.

`What size do you want to be?' it asked.

`Oh, I'm not particular as to size,' Alice hastily replied; `only one doesn't like changing so often, you know.'

`I DON'T know,' said the Caterpillar.

Alice said nothing: she had never been so much contradicted in her life before, and she felt that she was losing her temper.

`Are you content now?' said the Caterpillar.

`Well, I should like to be a LITTLE larger, sir, if you wouldn't mind,' said Alice: `three inches is such a wretched height to be.'

`It is a very good height indeed!' said the Caterpillar angrily, rearing itself upright as it spoke (it was exactly three inches high).

`But I'm not used to it!' pleaded poor Alice in a piteous tone. And she thought of herself, `I wish the creatures wouldn't be so easily offended!'

`You'll get used to it in time,' said the Caterpillar; and it put the hookah into its mouth and began smoking again..."

Today in Wonderland we are sizing up a GREAT sketch by JEN and the main panel just HAPPENS to be THREE. INCHES. TALL.  :)  Now, of course you don't have to stick to this if your image won't fit, but we didn't want to anger Mr. Caterpillar by saying that Three inches wasn't a respectable height!  :)

See you over on the Oh, Alice blog and don't forget to head to the Kraftin' Kimmie blog now, too!
