Challenge #414 - SUMMER!!!



Welcome to this week's Krafty Challenge!

For those of us with winter weather, we're sick of all the cold!  So let's do a SUMMER CHALLENGE!



Jessie Banks here hosting this weeks challenge! I am personally so over winter so I figured this was perfect for us! I coloured up this sweetheart from the Sea Jewels set

I coloured her up with my copic markers then fussy cut her out. I free handed the background using Distress inks, and watercolours! I love how this scene came out and it makes me feel all warm!

Create a card, scrapbook page, altered item etc. with a SUMMER theme and submit your design for your chance to WIN!  You have until Friday, January 26th to enter this challenge!  Keep in mind, all entries are welcome but you must use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp in order to win.

Each Saturday we post a new challenge and you can enter as many times as you like!!!  And each submission during the month will enter you into the monthly prize which will be....
$40 gift voucher to spend in the krafty shop!!!  
What do you think?  Worth playin' for?  ;)

We've also got a brand new sketch for your inspiration for January!  You don't have to use it but if you need a little extra kickstart in your mojo, feel free to use it any time!



Can't wait to see your krafty kreations!!  Happy stampin'!

January Krafty Peeks....Day TWO! Furry Angels!

Welcome to Day TWO of our January Krafty Peeks



This next set is very near and dear to my heart.  As some of you may remember, our family lost our sweet Daisy dog this past year to cancer.  I designed this set with artist Cheryl Grant right after losing Daisy and I love how it turned out.  
We all have lost furry friends over the years and know friends and family who have also been through such a devastating ordeal.  It's hard to know what to do in these situations but I think sending a sweet handmade creation with warm thoughts and hugs is so helpful.



And so we have the new FURRY ANGELS stamp set!

This sweet set features both a dog image and a cat image plus several heartwarming sentiments for your creations.



You will see these adorable images in action as you hop around the Krafty blogs!  You'll see the list of Krafty design team members and Krafty Guests below and be sure to leave some love at each stop because one lucky commenter is going to WIN a $10 gift voucher to the krafty shop EACH DAY this week!!
Plus we're doing a GIVEAWAY of the ENTIRE release on the Krafty Friends facebook page! 
The winners will be announced at the party so don't miss it!

You'll get to see all the incredible creations for January as we share them each day this week!  Be sure to join us at the LIVE Online Release Party on Saturday afternoon at 1pm EST!  We'll be checking out ALL of the FOUR new clear stamp sets, sharing fabulous creations, giving away prizes and having tons of krafty fun! 

Happy hoppin'!
