-:¦:-•*::...A Challenge...::*:•.-:¦:

Ok, so you all know my cyber sis? Elsa from Justafewdesigns?
...Well a few weeks ago Elsa posted a challenge for us all  to use her free doodle.  A gorgeous little girl called "Abbie".  SOOOOOOOOO this challenge closes tomorrow, and I am just scraping in by the hair of my teeth lol....but today I would like to share with my creation......

                                very first Easel Card

Some of the products I used to make this were:
  • Fancy Pants Splendid      Collection
  • Ribbon, Crochet  Lace, Bling
  • Silk flowers

I als tried my hand at paper piecing and layered up Abbies dress, bunny, teddy and bow with different papers.  I coloured Abbie using my Tim Holtz  Distress inks in Walnut Stain for her; Tea Dye for her skin and Aged Mahogony for her lips and rosy cheeks.

I'd just like to thank Elsa for the opportunity to use one of her lovely doodles.  If you haven't seen Elsa's doodles or lovely designs yet, then please do yourself a favour and go check her out.  You can find her at Justafewdesigns and her youtube is  and now you can also catch her live at her funs shows over at  Ustream channel

Ok all that is it from me for now I'll leave you with one more pic of Abbie and catch you later........

Happy Scrappin' to you all


  1. That is so beautiful! I am horrible with coloring in things...I am totally in awe of people who can make an image beautiful!! Great job!

  2. Thank you so much!! This is my first attempt at colouring!! I really appreciate your lovely words. Hugs Kimi xx

  3. Hi Kimi! Love your adorable easel card!.. So CUTE in pinks, and hearts, and flowers!.. And LAYERS! Yes, LAYERS! I'm just a beginner, but I thought I'd try my hand at Elsa's challenge. My project was a simple one, but when using Elsa's sweet little Abbie to start with, how can even a beginner like me go wrong?! I had fun, and I'm really hoping we see more of Abbie sometime!.. Nice to meet you! ~tina

  4. Kim, your card is so very pretty!!

    Really love how you colored in her hair!!
    WTG on your first easel card!!

  6. Oh kimmi sisssy I love her! you did an awesome job, I'm just glad I wasnt the one picking a design. I wasnt even in the room! lol I love the colors and the way youp pieced her is totally awesome! Thanks for everything.

  7. lol Elsa you would have chosen them all!! So glad you let someone else decide!! There were some really beautiful creations made with her! Love ya Sis Mwah and big hugggz Kimi...PS MISSING YOU!!!

  8. Very cute Kimibee.... love the easel card, I have not tried any cards.. YET... one of these days I will try.
    Isn't it funny how you think coloring is something that should just be easy... after all we probably spent alot of our little girl years, coloring in our coloring books. YOu did a great job. I have copics and boy they are really alot harder one would think!! I have to figure them out before I was to put them on anything important.

    Thanks for stopping by my Blog and commenting on my victorian made hat. Shame it wasn't for a challenge lol I just challenged myself to see if I could do it.. it turned out nicer than I could of thought!! I appreciate your sweet comments.. nice to see you visited.
