Skating By To Say Hi!

C4C-Kimme's-Easel1-wm

Greetings everyone!

Welcome to another challenge with the Crazy 4 Challenges girls!

This week begins a new challenge month which means we have a new hostess for our challenges, which is ME! I hope you enjoy this months challenges as much as you have the past couple of months challenges.

My challenge this week is to create an Easel Card. If you haven’t seen these before you can find the directions on how to create one of these here and here.

November also brings a new Sponsor and this month the sponsor is Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps.

C4C-Kimme's-Easel2-wm For my card today I used Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps new “Ozzie & Harriet” stamp … aren’t they just an adorable couple! I also used my new favorite snow designer paper …. yes I have used this DP a few times in the past week, hope you aren’t sick of it cause I am not LOL! I most definitely have to get more of it.

I used the distressed snow cuttlebug embossing folder to add texture to both peach panels. The sentiment is attached to one of Spellbinders Fancy Tags die and this is what holds my easel card up.

Here is a close up of the inside of my card. The sentiment is from Our Craft Lounge’s Snowy Sayings … this sentiment worked so well with the image that I used.
