Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge #7

Well, I just got back from spending a couple of days with my daughter Kraftin' Kimmie and my darling granddaughter Emileigh. We did some Christmas shopping, worked on cutting and packaging some Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps ready for shipping and we even found time for Kimmie to give me a Copics lesson, which was great fun. Now I just need the Copics!! Hint to my hubby, as if he ever reads this!!

Okay, I'm the hostess for this week's Kraftin' Kimmie Blog Challenge. This week is number 7, so if you put your cards on Splitcoast, be sure to put KKSC7 in the Keywords, so we can all see your creations when we go there. For this week I chose 'Happy Winter, Merry Christmas', so you can do either (or both). Not too hard at this time of the year, right? We are at least thinking about making our Christmas cards now even if we're not already working on them. As usual, you don't have to use Kraftin' Kimmie stamps, but if you do have some, why not use them?!! I used Bernadette for my card with the accompanying sentiment 'You're Snow Sweet', so those are the stamps that the randomly picked winner will receive. Don't ya just love Bernadette?
For this card I used some DCWV Christmas papers matted onto some Certainly Celery, then on a Bashful Blue base. I stamped Bernadette on Watercolour paper, coloured her in using my S.U. Markers, then cut her out with my labels nesties. I popped her up on a coordinating piece of matching dp, put another matching piece of the dp across the middle, punched out some sparkly blue snowflakes, used some sparkly blue ribbon, then used the matching sentiment stamped on Certainly Celery and that's it.
Make sure you go to Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog and see what the other Krafty Girls have come up with, then do your own thing and link up your creations to the Blog for us all to see. One of you gals will win Bernadette and sentiment just in time to use for your own winter cards.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend,
see you again soon,


  1. Your snow sweet yourself! This is just lovely, cute little image and beautifully coloured. Think you need to leave little notes about the house for hubby to get the hint on the copics lol.

  2. So Sweet Nana D! Hope to play along this week! I think you should leave a few hints around the house too and get Kimmie on board to make the odd suggestion. Take care, ;) Tracy
