… and Happy Kitchen Sink Monday!

I hope your New Year is off to a great start!

I must say, New Year’s Eve …

was so much fun with all the excitement with the launch of our new forum, new open gallery  [ galleries can be found on Pinterest and SplitcoastStampers] … and a new stamp release with 3 new titles just in time for the celebration! I had such a blast with all the challenges… that was 19 challenges in 12 hours! Whew! I sure hope I didn’t wear anyone out? 😉

I have two cards to share with you today. Both were created from the same stamp set, Multi-Step Sweet Heart Roses, a new mini for this January.

The first card is a 4- 3/4″ sq card for Valentine’s with the sentiment, “XOXO Sweet Heart”, stamped as a light background. The metallic embellishments are Tear Drops called Love Birds from Robin’s Nest and can be found in the KSS store.

The second card is for a new weekly challenge added to our forum: 10 min card challenge.

I gave this challenge to the KSCrew and then forgot all about it with all the New Year’s Eve excitement! (Being a Gemini, I am putting all the blame on my evil twin!) Thank goodness it was a 10 min. challenge! LOL  Goodness knows how often I need to make a card at the last min. as I am walking out the door and this small 2- 3/4″ sq little gift or note card always does the job. This little card is for St. Patty’s Day with the sentiment, “XOXO”, placed on the block in a curved shape to stamp as the clover’s stem. In all fairness, I know the KSCrew used all 10 mins. on their cards, I think I used 5. 😉

Hope you will play along with our 10 min. Challenge.  If you do, please be sure to upload your card to the new Kitchen Sink Gallery. Add KSCC31 in the keywords so we can all the 10-minute creations together!!!

Some other super fun news to announce … we have a Guest stamper joining us for the month of January!

You may recognize her from her Blog: Magic Delights or from playing many challenges online. She is a regular KSCrew Challenge player and we are thrilled to have her join us in the Kitchen this month!
