I had to take the opportunity to squeeze one last Christmas card in for 2013. I love Christmas images, and this gorgeous angel Felicity is one of my absolute favourites. I also did the card in my favourite style, vintage. The papers are MME from last year. All edges were distressed and sponged with gold paint and Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I ordered some Frantage embossing powder after seeing so many of my friends use this awesome product on their projects. I also ordered a heat gun...believe it or not, I didn't own one until now. I know, crazy! I used both Shabby White and Aged Gold. I also used some fun new goodies from my friend Jenny...thanks so much Jenny!! She sent me some awesome vintage brads and a package of fun wooden embellishments along with some other fun items...not to mention a beautiful handmade card. Feeling blessed! I coloured the wooden holly sprig with copics and painted the word JOY in gold paint. A bit of crocheted trim and Stardust Stickles for the wings finished it all off. 

Make sure to check out the wonderful creations by our Krafty Girls and Guests featuring this week's challenge over at the KKS Blog!! If you join us and play along, you could WIN a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp

Well, we’ve taken out all the guess work for you and designed a KraftyKardmaking Kit with everything you need to make SIX awesome cards AND have some goodies leftover to whip up some extras! We’ve chosen and coordinated patterned papers, cardstocks, envelopes, coordinating stickers, 3-D embellishments, washi tapes, twine and a Sakura Stardust gel pen ..... and you’re ready to go!! PLUS with the December kit, you’ll also receive YOUR CHOICE of one of our gorgeous $8 stamps!! Choose whichever one you like from our many lines and styles of rubber stamps!

Here's the card I made with 1/6th of the contents of one kit. I also had enough leftovers that I could have made a tag or two. I trimmed one of the card bases down to 5"x5". The cute fairy is Rosabelle...if you don't already own  her, she could be your choice of stamp to go along with your kit this  month. The sentiment comes with one of our other fairies, Isabelle. Stardust Stickles were added to her wings. I snipped it up and added a bit of Stardust Stickles to frame the words. The flourish is an MFT Die. I also did the interior of my card, but completely forgot to snap a picture of it...sorry about that!

Here's a picture of the full contents of the kit:

Now hop around and check out the SIX awesome cards that the Krafty Girls have made to inspire you! Keep your eyes peeled for an extra special blog post along the hop by one of our fabulous Krafty Girls that includes a VIDEO!!! She's sharing everything what she received in this month's kit so you can see exactly what you'll be getting plus some goodies you can make!!!
