September Krafty Hop!

Hello~ hello~~ It's release day over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and we are celebrating it with a Krafty Hop! This month we are releasing a lovely Lulu and Libby set from Cheryl Alger and it's called Holiday Lulu and Libby. There are also six fabulous holiday images called Santa & His Elves from Emilie Goulet. And Annie Rodrigue created a set of sweet Holiday Girls. There is also a beautiful Holiday Trinkets set by Nicole Aspinall!

Hope you are having fun hopping with us. Here are my cards for the hop.

First up is Madeline from Annie's Holiday Girls collection. Do you dress your pets up for the holidays? I don't think we'd survive that... =)

Madeline and her kitty are stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select white cardstock, colored with Copic markers then trimmed to size. The sentiment piece is cut using a Standard Circles Large die.

The patterned paper is from Winter Wonderland 6x6 Designer Paper Pad by My Mind's Eye and the sentiment is from the new Holiday Trinkets set.

I used the lovely Santa Baby from Emilie's holiday collection for my second card. This one just makes me smile! =)

The image is stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then trimmed to size.

The patterned paper on the card base is from Season's Greetings 6x6 Paper Pad by Echo Park. I used a bunch of Japanese washi tapes to create a frame for the image. The sentiment is from Holiday Lulu and Libby set.

Thanks for stopping by!
