I used my Cricut to cut out the little campground scene and the grass, I colored the little animals on express-it blending stock, then fussy cut them and attached them to the card.

These little guys are so versatile, you can use them in addition to another stamp set, you can make an any occasion card, you can stamp them in your planner, make labels, or bookmarks, ermergersh I have sooooo many ideas for them! You better scoop up a set before they are all gone! For reals!

Day 2 of amazing Peeks for KKS

Oh yeah, I just KNEW i'd see ya back here for day 2! Uh huh! Well after the awesomeness that you saw yesterday, why wouldn't you hop around for day 2? Ok... check it out.....
This, my Krafty friends, is Paulina! Isn't she adorable?!?!?!?! EEEeeeeeekkkkkk!!!!!
Ok so as usual I colored her up on some Express-it blending stock and I totally didn't keep track of the markers I used because..... I have a good reason, so hear me out, because..... we all know that I NEVER do pastel colors. So I had no idea whatsoever what I was doing, so I was grabbing markers left and right and using a tiny touch here and there and then blending it out and then grabbing more.  By the time I was finished my entire craft room had exploded, I even had markers on the floor under my desk.  It was a hot mess and it was a ton of fun and i IMMEDIATELY set to cleaning it all up. Ha ha ha! I can tell you that the flowers were all purchased from Wild Orchid Crafts though, does that help? he he he! 

Well, day 3 is going to be super cute, so I better see you beck here tomorrow.  Don't forget to hop around to all the Dt and guest blogs today and check out the amazing things that are posted... seriously.... Paulina has a super badass friend and you've just gotta see her! Leave love on every blog because there will be a lucky commenter who will win an epic prize at the release party on FaceBook.   Ok, that's all from me for now... catch ya tomorrow otay??? he he he 
Tootles!
