Kraft paper /Black ssnotime challenge

Today's challenge at notimetostamp is to use kraft & black. Many of us don't use kraft much but give it a try.
Bet you didn't know this tidbit of info so I'm going to enlighten you with some very important knowledge. Mr. Webster told me about kraft paper...it's a tough wrapping paper made of sulfate wood pulp. You're probably thinking right now ...who gives a kraft??? Well, I do and thought you might like that to store away in case you're ever on Alex Trabeck's Jeoprady show. Hey, buzz the buzzer like quick... I know the answer Alex ," what is kraft paper ?" So keep that in mind now ...you betcha! ( that you betcha comes from Sarah Palin ). Anyway back to the plan here. Use kraft paper and you must use black also. Well I think those 2 colors were made for each other so I had no problem following the rules. My card has my wonderful Nestie's label # 4 and my flowers are done with a SU stamp by embossing in white and then just cutting them out ( hate cutting) and adding a bit of bling in black. The top little curly que( or is that curly-q) is from a Scrappy Cat set as is the little phrase. Now the ribbon is super as it's like kraft & black stripped and it's of course May Art's ribbon from Sharon's store.
That's it people and I hope you all have a blessed and crazy weekend. Hey guys guess what??? I've only got until the 15th. and then I leave for Billings to see my DD and family. counting the days until we get together and bust a gut with laughter and fun. Hee Haw...( that's Western talk)
