Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge # 50 & October Release Preview # 1!

Good morning Krafty friends! Well, I am back from my wee blog break! I went on a Caribbean Cruise with my hubby and the kiddos and we had an absolutely fabulous time on Liberty of the Seas. I hope to have some pics to share with you from our trip once I get a new computer...yes, unfortunately, I am still without a computer and only have my Dad's to work on. I have been so busy since I got back that I haven't had time to do any computer shopping yet! But it is top of my to do list, trust me!

Well, enough rambling, time to get krafty! Today we have a new challenge over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge blog and I'm the hostess this week! We would like to see you make a card with Non-Traditional Christmas Colours! The krafty Girls are also starting the previews from the new Sweet Holiday October release that will be available in the Kraftin' Kimmie on-line shop on Tuesday October 19th. There are 6 super cute images from Annie Rodrigue and Steven Leary is back again with super cute stamps with Miles the Mouse and pal.

So, for my card I used Christmas Clara....just love her to bits and in keeping with the non-traditional colours I used this scrumptious BoBunny patterned paper called Winter Joy that I just adore...be prepared to see lots of it over the next little while, smile! I used one of the sparkly Winter Joy brads and I embellished with Prima and WOC roses and American Crafts ribbon! I also sprinkled a few lilac half pearls here and there and added lots of stickles to Clara so she is really sparkly IRL! The sentiment on the front of the card is actually on the patterned paper!

Here is the inside...the sentiment here comes with one of the other stamps, "Nick", from the new Sweet Holiday October Release and I will be sharing a card with him later this week!

Well, I hope you have some krafty time this week and can join the non-traditional Christmas colours challenge! I will be at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps booth #425 at Scrapfest today with Kimmie and many of the other Krafty Girls. I hope to see you there and it is a chance to get your inky paws on the new release right away!!!

Have a Stampin' Great Day!

Hugs,
