Welcome to this week's Krafty Challenge!  For those of us with winter weather, we're sick of all the cold! So let's do a SUMMER CHALLENGE!
Create a card, scrapbook page, altered item etc. with a SUMMER theme and submit your design for your chance to WIN! You have until Friday, January 26th to enter this challenge on the KKS blog! Keep in mind, all entries are welcome but you must use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp in order to win.
Each Saturday we post a new challenge and you can enter as many times as you like!!! And each submission during the month will enter you into the monthly prize which will be a $40 gift voucher to spend in the krafty shop!

We've also got a brand new sketch for your inspiration for January!  Using the sketch is not mandatory but it's a little extra help to put your card or project together!

My card today features the stamp set Sandy Toes and guess is currently on sale!!  I used distress oxides to create the background.  The colours I used were Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, Fossilized Amber, Salty Ocean and Peeled Paint.  Then I splattered the background with some water.  The image was coloured with Polychromos pencils and then cut out and popped up on the background.  I added the sentiment and then some YNS Enamel Dots. 
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!!
