hello again, hope your keeping well, I'm not too good myself at present.
I have a chest infection(again) along with aching limbs and general fatigue.
Well that's enough about me. LOL
Today we start a new challenge at Cardz 4 Galz. 
Julie has chosen  - Get Krafty - so you are to use Kraft card.
The DT have again excelled with some wonderful inspiration.

I have used a 7" sq. Kraft card, which nicely acommodates the large
stamp from Honey Doo Stamps,  along with the Greeting stamp. 
I love Amanda's stamps.
I stamped with Versamark, heat embossed with white fine detail powder.
