Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge #109~Tag You're It!


Hello!  It's time for a new challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, and this time we are challenging you to make a TAG!!!  This challenge is right up my alley because I LOVE making tags:)  You can also incorporate a tag onto a card, etc. 

For my tag I used this adorable image named Willard.  This poor little dude just looks so cold doesn't he?  He needs to head on down here to Florida and thaw out a little bit:)  I used Nestabilities Labels 8 for the base of my tag, and embossed it with the CB D'vine Swirls embossing folder.  I added a Nestie Oval, and sponged it with PTI Aqua Mist.  I then embossed the oval with the CB Snowflake EF.  The sentiment comes with this image. 

We hope you'll play along!  The prize for this challenge is this awesome image:
Cutthroat Lizzie!  Just link your Tag creations to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog HERE

Also, the TWELVE KRAFTY DAYS OF KHRISTMAS CELEBRATION is going on!  Each day Kimmie is posting a few of her favourite creations from the Krafty Girls and Guests from one of the releases!! AND everyone who comments on the post is eligible to WIN some rubber goodness from that release!!! How does that sound??? Pretty good???! Leave comments every day for chances to win.....and she'll announce all the winners on December 26th!!  Check out the fun HERE! (Today is day 5!)

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I'm so glad the weekend is here and so is Christmas break!  Have a great one:)

Happy Holidays...




Hello! I can't believe that this is the end of my term at ABC Toys and Crafts! I want to say a big Thank You to Julie for letting me play with her wonderful products over the last few months:)


For my card today, I used this adorable set from Hero Arts once again called Holiday Dolls. I stamped the doll with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I stamped the sentiment with SU Chocolate Chip and cut it out with Rectangle Nestabilities. I layered them onto some My Mind's Eye 12 Days of Christmas dp that I cut with my Circle Nestabilities. I cut a pretty border with the Martha Stewart Doily Lace Border Punch and added some Martha Stewart punched snowflakes.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a terrific Thursday:)
