Kraftin' Kimmie Krafty Komeback - Trick or Eat

Oh hey! I'm happy you're here to visit me today because
The Krafty Vault at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is being opened again!

As you know some of the older stamp sets have been retired 
and have been hard to find for quite some time. 
Today Kimmie is re-releasing TWO rubber sets

These awesome sets come as completely unmounted pre-trimmed 
natural red rubber!  These sets have NOW been released and are
 in the shop right now!  These were very popular sets so I have
a feeling that they are going to get snatched up quick ;o) 

I used one of the zombie images from TRICK OR EAT today
I absolutely love this spooky sweet set!

here's a close up of this image and the glitter bow (which has now
spread glitter all over my entire craft room). 

See...I told you she's fabulous and you know you want her - hehe!

Hop on down and see what some of the others
on the Krafty krew DT have made to inspire you.
And since you're already shopping, don't forget about 
the FRUGAL FRIDAY SPECIALS that are up in the shop also! 
Have a fantastic weekend!  Hugs! D

STAMPTember at Simon Says Stamp and The 30 Day Marker Challenge - Sept 2017

Hi everyone!  I'm a little behind getting this posted
to my blog (have already shared on Instagram).  
I was so excited to have the privilege to be sent 
a NEW stamp set from Simon Says Stamp to 
use for STAMPtember 2017!  This set has 
lots and lots of awesome and encouraging sentiments
that can be used on so many projects and creations. 
It's called YOU GOT THIS and I used several of the
sentiments on my card below

The distress oxide inks (I love how they blend)and the 
adorable lion from the SugarPea Designs stamp and die
set called Caring Critters can also be found in the SSS store.  

I am sharing this card in The 30 Day Marker Challenge on Instagram
and at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenges - Stamp It for STAMPtember.  
You can find me at @craftycpa and the hastag for this 
awesome coloring event is #thedailymarker30day.  

Thanks for visiting me today! Hugs! D

Kraftin' Kimmie Challenges Wonderful Wednesday - Sept 6th 2017

Hello everyone!  
Maybe you've noticed that things have been a bit quiet
on my blog for the past couple months.  
I took some time off crafting and blogging 
to catch up on some life kind of stuff 
and enjoy the summer while my son and his
fiance lived with us while in transition. 
But now I'M BACK and so excited to be 
crafting again!  What better way to get things started
again than to use the ANYTHING GOES theme
for WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY at
Kraftin' Kimmie Challenges.

I hadn't used my colored pencils for quite a while
so I pulled them out along with the adorable 
stamp set called LULU'S WHEELS

 I love this sweet stamp and the sense of adventure
it makes me imagine.  Road trip anyone? 
Where would you go if you could just get in the car and drive? 

Come play along with us this week.  
Each month all the entries from all the challenges  
receive a chance (for each time entered) to win 
a fantastic prize of $20 to spend in the Kraftin' Kimmie Shop.

Ohhhhh and I also want to tell you that next week is
Release Week of the brand NEW September clear
stamps and I think you are going to love, love, love
them.  Here's a hint...they are spooky and fun :o)

Thanks for stopping in to visit me today!
Go get krafty and share your creation(s) with us :o)
Hugs! D
