For the Kraftin' Kimmie sneak peeks, please click HERE.

Hi Everyone!!!
Welcome to my 

Our first All Dressed Up challenge & new image release of 2014 is here...
and what a fantastic release it is!!   :) :) :) 

Both of our teams have joined together for this Challenge/Release, and we are also having a 

We have four new images this month, all of which can be found over in the Etsy shop

I have used only a portion of  **I Love to Shop** to fit into my photo *Instagram frame 
for a fun and chic card for one of my girlfriends!!  We only seem to take pics when we are out shopping!!
The beauty of digital images is that you can size them for whatever you are working on!!
My sentiment is computer generated and printed onto the mint card stock.

 I colored my image with copics and shinhan markers, which I love for their bright colors!! 
See shopping links below for markers.  :) :) 

If you would like to play along in our challenge this month,
please use an All Dressed Up image (we have some cute freebies)
