Welcome to my blog on this last Saturday of November 2020.
Does that sound as odd to read as it did for me to type?!
Saturday always brings a new weekly theme challenge
Our hostess this week is krafty gal Allison and she has
chosen a fun color combo theme for you.
Challenge #559 is to Use EITHER
Red & Green OR Purple and Blue.
For my DT card I went with the Red & Green combo
and used the super CUUUUTE BELIEVE IN YOUR ELF
clear stamp set (colored with copic markers).
I so adore the look on this mischievous elf's face.
And the reindeer seems to be thinking "oh boy we're
in for some ride" LOL. This image is as fun to color
as it is to use on Christmas cards! The photo
doesn't show it very well but there's red foil
cardstock around the base and on the word die.
If you have been doing some Black Friday shopping
you can also take advantage of a super sized
FRUGAL FRIDAY in the KKS Shop. LOTS
and LOTS of great bargains for you.
Here's a link to help you get there - you're welcome!
We sure do hope that you'll join us this week and
enter your own Red & Green OR Purple & Blue
creation. Maybe you'll make one of each! You
can enter as many times as you wish - just link up a NEW
creation each time. There's a monthly prize of $25
for those who play along. You might be the lucky
one who has some Krafty $$ to spend on yourself!
So off I go for now! Hope you are having a great
weekend and enjoying some peace and good health
going into the Christmas month.
Thanks for stopping by! Cyber hugs! D

of a real book in my hands. So I made a couple
bookmarks with SAVE MY PLACE

Hello friends! Today is DAY ONE of the November release at
I'm so happy to be sharing my creations with you
these next few days!
The first stamp set is called SAVE MY PLACE
by artist Melissa Baker-Nguyen.
This one really speaks to me as I have been
a HUGE bookworm my entire life!
Here's my card that also features the new
SOFT SAGE hybrid ink and
few of the new DREAMY DOTS.
I love this saying that's in the stamp set.
I honestly believe that my kids are so smart
because they were read to in the womb
and up until they read consistently on their own.
I have lots of family and friends who love to
ready so I'm pretty sure I'll be having lots of fun with
this stamp set and stencil in the future!

Hello to all who are popping in to visit me today!
Happy weekend to you - hoping it's a good one!
It's time for another weekly challenge for
KRAFTIN' KIMMIE STAMPS and I have
the honor of choosing the theme this week.
For Challenge #556 the theme is...
FALL OR WINTER CARD/CREATION.
I love Fall and all the beautiful colors, hiking, college football
and of course Thanksgiving. Winter also though has it's own
sort of beauty and is right around the corner (as is Christmas).
I just couldn't decide at first which theme I really wanted
so I'm leaving it up to you as to which one inspires you the most!
Our family will not be having the big turkey day celebration this
year due to COVID so I'm sending out more Thanksgiving cards
than usual to stay in touch. What awesome time it was to
have the super adorable IT'S TURKEY DAY! stamp released
this year. I've wanted a stamp set like this for while!
My card today is an easel card. Here's the front
using a sentiment from Pumpkin Kisses
and here's the card open
So now it's your turn. What season will you pick?
I can't wait to see your creations in the blog or in
the Kraftin' Kimmie Friends Facebook Group folder.
You can enter as many times as you want - but each
creation must be a NEW and different creation.
There is a monthly prize offered and every time you
enter it give you a shot at it. Using KKS products
doubles your chances. Go get Krafty!!!
Oh and before I go... check out the FRUGAL FRIDAY
specials for this weekend and the ink of the month
(which is my favorite - Salty Sea)!
