Shopping Our Stash says Let's Get Krafty!!!

At Shopping Our Stash we are asking you to use Kraft somewhere on your project for challenge #364. . I wasn't as well prepared as I thought I was at the cottage and only had a little larger than 1/4 of a sheet of "crumb cake" cardstock, which is what I use for Kraft, I do have some from Michaels that is a bit darker alas it was at home. I'm also very behind on holiday cards so since most of my paper pads were "holiday" ones I chose to make a Winter card. (makes me feel a bit cooler)

Out of my stash it was the scrap of crumb cake cardstock, I cut the sentiment scalloped layer from the larger scalloped frame which I cut from the large piece that is the kraft layer under the patterned paper, now that's using one scrap to it's fullest, the BoBunny 3 year old paper pad  there wasn't anything new on this card. The stamp I used is one of my favourites from House Mouse Designs. 

Finished the inside with an IO sentiment that I totally forgot I had, it's been sitting uninked for one season maybe two. glad it surfaced last week.

Challenges I'm entering:

Jingle Belles Rock ~~ All Bundled Up 

Thanks for visiting today and check out what the rest of the design team have gotten Krafty with.

it's NEVER a bad idea to make an "extra" holiday card!!! even the years i think i have more than i could possibly need, they all GO somehow! house mouse skiing and outstanding 2-for-1 scrap management for the win!!! :)

You are so S M R T to get such a jump start on your holiday cards!
This one is super cute and uber KRAFTY!!

Mimi said...

So cute, Barbara. That sentiment is a good one, too. I love how you always say, "...didn't have it at the cottage..." then you put me to shame! Great card. I also had to smile at the sweet mouse, and another classic Barbara saying, "One of my favorite House Mouse stamps..."

i know i already said how much i love this, but i didn't have my official JINGLE BELLES hat on, and it's such a great version of layering for the "all bundled up" gallery! ♥

Your little mouse critter creations are always so adorable and this one is no exception. Your image is colored perfectly! Beautiful work as always! Your work helped me get inspired to start stamping again!
