Our Friendship is Tweet

Hi everyone!  I wanted to pop in to say Merry Christmas and to share one final card for the year.  It isn’t Christmas-themed but friendship.  I’ve made so many friends through this craft and I am thankful for every single one, near and far.

Today I’ve used Friendship is Tweet from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps.  I stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.  To add dots to the cheeks, I used Copic Opaque White and a tiny paint brush.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday.  Hugs!

Frosty Winter Friends

Welcome to Kraftin Kimmie Stamps‘ October release!   We have lots of fun new images this month.  Cheryl has created two of the most adorable  sets featuring two new  winter cuties, Emilie Goulet presents a cute new baby set and Annie has six new Dashing Dancers. There are new Winter Trinkets designed by Nicole Aspinall as well.

You’ll see most of the new images throughout the hop. Click on the little frog below to see a list of direct links to all Krafty Girls and Guests.  :)   Be sure to leave comments as you go because two lucky winners will each receive a package of assorted stamps from the release!

Today I’ve used one of Cheryl’s cute images from Lexi’s Winter Fun.

As always, I colored with Copics, choosing to “dot” in color on the coat trim to (hopefully) create a bumpy-like appearance.

You can find all of this month’s new release images here.  Gimme Kimmies Kits are available here for a limited time (grouped together by artist and available at a discount).

One final note…this is my last “official” post as a “Krafty Girl.”  I’ll still be around for release previews and hops as time allows, but things have gotten much, much busier, which is a good thing.   But it also means I’ve had to make some tough decisions.  I don’t want to make this sound like a farewell to KKS because it isn’t.  Not at all.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy hopping…and shopping!
