Snow Much Fun

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone is having a good after Christmas week. I have been really lazy. I need to get busy if I am going to get everything done this week I promised myself I would do. I have made some time to stamp though. Funny how that works.

This is my first Kraftin Kimmie stamp. I just thought he was so cute and different than my other winter stamps. When I saw the Crazy 4 Challenges sketch I thought this stamp would be perfect for it. I colored it with bright colors but still felt it needed something so I used my white gel pen and put dots on the scarf. I love my gel pen. I also used it on the snowflakes around the card. I didn't think I would like this MS punch when I bought it but noone had the one I wanted and in the past they sell out and then I don't have any. This worked out because I do like it alot. The only problem is that it makes the work area on a 5 x 5 card alot smaller and since so many stamps are large these days it can get a little hard to fit everything in.

The challenges this fits are:

Crafty Calendar - Winter Sparkle

Crazy 4 Challenges
- Sketch

Kraftin Kimmie - Sparkle Baby

Kaboodle Doodles - Sparkling Winter

Practical Scrappers - Winter

Crafty Creations - No Rules

Lots To Do - Free Theme

Well, I have alot to get done today and so far I spent most of the morning on the phone with my sister. Tonight I am heading to my LSS store and dinner with her and some stamping friends. I am looking forward to it!!!

I hope you like my card. If you do please let me know. I love reading all the comments!!

CS: SU Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink
STAMPS: Kraftin Kimmie
