Getting a head start on Christmas with a Krafty WInter Scene

It's NEVER to early to get a start on Christmas Cards! NEVER....why do I say that? 
Because I NEVER seem to have enough cards!

I got this adorable little set through Stamping Up~ and just had to play with it! 
I saw some very sweet winter scenes in White and Blue, but I have a thing for Kraft these days~

I think the card is Delicious! Why is it that I LOVE LOVE LOVE Snow scenes and Snow men, but can't stand the cold!  I'm relishing the day when I can spend the winters south! (Hmm I better make more stamping friends closer to the Equator!!!! lol~

I've been asked to do some classes again, so this is one of the Christmas Cards we'll be doing!

Do you likey?

Hope you have a great day! If you're here in Ontario, enjoy the smidge of summer weather that Mother Nature has bestowed upon us!

Happy Stamping!

Impression Obsession Thursday Challenge-Keep It Clean

This week's challenge on the Impression Obsession Blog is to create a clean and simple card.

It doesn't get much simpler than this!

I totally had to make my card with the CUTEST Flip Flop Dies EVER!!!!!!!

You can find them on the IO Website very soon!

I cut the "FLIPS" out of some sweet Echo Park Paper and sponged the edges with Pacific Point Ink

I stamped the sweet summer sentiment in the same ink

Then, I simply mounted the Flip Flops on Pop Dots!

Easy Peasy!!!!

Watch in the next few days, I totally have some fun cards to show you with the new summer dies!

Head on over to the IO Blog to enter your submission for the challenge contest and to get links to the DT players!!!!!

Happy Stamping!

A good time to stay in and cuddle Day 5 IO New release Blog Hop

I saved my two FAVE cards for the last day of the Hop~

Winter is a good time to stay in and cuddle. I think so..... I have to be honest, i'm not a huge fan of the cold, but I LOVE snowmen, pretty snowfalls; the kind where the flakes are huge and fluffy and fill the sky. I love the look of snow on the pines and cardinals! I don't like the cold, but I enjoy building a snowman, skating on the lake (although I'm not a great skater) and a drive on a dry road in the winter to take in all the wintery scenes. Other than that....Winter IS a good time to stay in and cuddle!!!

I used several stamps and Dies for this snowy winter card

Paper: Something Blue-Prima
Colouring: Prism Pencils

So I truly hope you enjoyed my projects this week! I know I sure enjoyed creating them!!!

Please head over to the IO Blog to get the details for prizes...I know that there will be TWO winners today!!! 

Is it a long weekend in the USA as well as Canada? If so, enjoy!

I'm looking forward to a few days off!

Keep your eyes peeled for more IO creations! I have some saved up to share next week!

Happy Stamping
