Merry Christmas - Kraftin' Kimmie Krafty Guest Designer Call

Hello friends - another post for this chilly Saturday morning.
I woke up this morning about 7AM and it was 10 degrees outside.
About an hour ago we started getting sleet and snow and
now the temp (without the wind chill) is below zero
I promised my daughter that we would go have lunch, 
do a little Christmas shopping and get a tree
to decorate this evening.
Guess I'd better suck it up and bundle up - LOL!

Before I go brave the cold and the crowds I have a
Christmas card to share with you that I made to enter
in the Kraftin' Kimmie Krafty Guest Designer Call - take a look:
card front - stamp by Krafin' Kimmie

and opened into an easel card

A while back I was fortunate enough to receive
some of Loll's card candy (the poinsettias
and flourishes).  I found them in a bin
of forgotten treasures and knew immediately 
that I wanted to use them.  Aren't they fabulous?

The finished size of this card is 5 3/4" square.
It will need to be hand delivered as it will cost
me a small fortune to mail - lol.

In September I had the honor to be a
Krafty Guest Designer for Kraftin' Kimmie.
I only had a couple stamps but I loved so many
of them that I thought I'd give it a try.
Now I'd describe myself as a bit of an KK stamp addict.'s hoping I get another shot at being a guest designer :o)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
