Simply Sunday Snow & Embossing Challenge & Day 1 of the Getting Cricky Pre-Hop Week

Greetings Crafty Friends!!!

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful weekend! I've found some time to relax and just enjoy some "ME" time!!! We all need some of that every so often!

I want to welcome you to this week's Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge! This week's challenge theme is Let it Snow- Use embossing! I had so much fun creating my project for this challenge and I couldn't wait to share it with everyone. So without further adieu I present to you my project!

I can't begin to tell you how much FUN I had making this card! Now for the details!

These adorable penguins are cut from the Simply Charmed cartridge. The snowflake is from the Christmas Solutions cartridge. All paper is from my pile of scraps! And where is that awesome sentiment from you ask! Well it is from 2 sets from the One and Only K. Andrew Designs line of stamps! I used the Winter Wishes set and Crafty Friends! This was the absolute perfect sentiment for what I had envisioned in my head!

Not only are we having our Simply Sunday Challenge, but this Friday is our Monthly Getting Cricky Blog Hop, which I know that you are going to LOVE! To get everyone excited and pumped about the hop several of my wonderful Design Team Sisters and I have selected on of Kristal's sets to feature for the entier week by sharing different projects each day. We want to show you just how versatile and wonderful each set really is!

The set that I am featuring ALL week is Winged Things!!!

 You can head over to the K. Andrew Designs store to grab your very own set!! I promise you it will be so hard to pick just one, so you are just going to have to get them ALL! :)

The butterfly was cut from the Once Upon  a Princess cartridge. And my sentiment of course was from the Winged Things set!

I love this sentiment not only because of my LOVE for butterflies but because of the inner message that this sentiment conveys. It absolutely perfect!

Well thanks for stopping by! Be sure to stop back by each day this week to see more of the projects that I have made using K. Andrew Designs- Winged Things set!
