Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Skrappy Challenge (Nov & Dec 2019)

Image may contain: text

Hello friends! Today is the start of another monthly
 where the theme is Anything BUT a card!
We call it the Skrappy Challenge and you have 
until next year to join in - the deadline is January 6th!

But before I share my creation with you, I want to
share an awesome SALE that will be coming up soon!
Image may contain: text
This is a great opportunity to get some of the
KKS items that are on your wish list. 

For my project this month I'm sharing a desk calendar that
I've been working on.  For each of the months I've used
 KKS stencils, inks and of course stamp sets.  
My goal is to get through June by the end of December. 

Here's a look at all of them at once

and now here are each of them with details.
The stamp sets used are Mini Monsters,
Pumpkin Kisses (Boo!).  The stencil

The sentiment is from Pumpkin Kisses,
the beautiful pumpkins are from 
Happy Fall Y'All. The leaves and swirls
are from Grateful Pumpkins

On this one I used Holiday Village
and a sentiment from
(stamped in Berry Bliss hybrid ink)

and here is January
Those beautiful snowy mountains were created
I used Bubbly Blue hybrid ink for the background
and the tiny snowflakes.  The sentiment is from
Shake it Up - Polar Bears. And of course the adorable
sledder is from the new Jolly Happy Snowmen set. 

Thanks for popping in to visit me today.
I hope you will decide to join us and find
some time to get Skrappy this next month!
You can enter as many times as you want
between now and January 6th.
Just make sure that its a new project and include
a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps product (or two).
As soon as we have at least 5 people entering
we will be offering a $20 prize to the KKS Shop!
And don't forget to share your creations in
the Krafty Friends Facebook Group too.
Hugs! D

FMS #412

Hello friends! Happy Monday!
Quick post from me before heading off to work. 
I found some time over the weekend to play and
make some Christmas cards for a fundraiser auction.
I used the Freshly Made Sketches #412 for my design.
Here are my cards (I made several of each design).
I apologize for the sub-par photos. The lighting 
last night and this morning wasn't optimal.

Thanks for visiting me today! Gotta run!

Hello! I'm happy you're here to visit me!

The theme for KKS Challenge #505 is 

How have you been keeping up on your Christmas
cards so far?  I'm just getting a start on mine really.
The September and October releases from
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps
are just perfect for this and I should be able to get 
a bunch done in a short amount of time.

I chose the super cute stamp set called
ELF-TACULAR for my DT card.

I'm also entering my card in the following challenges:

Did you know that the Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop
has started?  Kraftin' Kimmie is a super sponsor for the hop  
and she's offering a 15% discount - check out the details!

There are several stamp sets in the KKS Shop that fit 
the Coffee/Cocoa/Tea theme.  Here's some links to a few.

November also brings another  
The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge
(the FOURTEENTH one!)
The idea of this challenge is to get us coloring each
day - even if its only for 10 minutes.  I know that
coloring is the best therapy for me.  Use these two challenges
to get coloring and creative!  You'll feel better I guarantee!
Color up some of your KKS stamps and join the fun!

And if you need some extra inspiration here's an
awesome sketch for the month of November at KKS
that you might like.  I hope you'll color up a KKS image and 
join the CHRISTMAS Challenge this week.
