A Beary St. Patrick one minute …

… now a Beary St. Nick!    He’s a bear for many holidays!

Please don’t let the theme of this card imply that I have my seasons mixed up. I am attempting to get a jump start on my Christmas card making. I figure if I start now, I might be ready and have enough come late November … instead of my usual mailing my holiday cards AFTER Christmas! LOL!

Beary-Christmas by Kitchen Sink StampsTo help get my mission started, I took inspiration from SCS’s Fan Club Christmas Challenge – SCSCCMAR16 .
That is 1 Christmas card down … ??? to go!  – LOL!

Gold at the end of the Rainbow

Happy Monday!

Have another “Pot of Gold at the end of the Rainbow” card to share. This one took its inspiration from Splitcoast Sketch Challenge SC581.

I didn’t have any pattern papers with a St. Patrick’s Day theme, so I created my own using Plaid Plus and Multi Step Paint Splatters

Happy Kitchen Sink Monday and its time for a new KS Crew Challenge!


This month’s KSCC Hostess is Makiko. She is getting us all in the spirit for some trick -o-treating with her Halloween challenge.

You can find all the details HERE.

I started off creating an ATC card (which I haven’t done in a long time … just love them!), but when I stumbled across these spider brads in my  “stash” that were screaming to be used, I just had to turn my ATC into a card. 🙂 Thanks Makiko for the fun and timely challenge!

See what spooktacular cards and projects the KS Crew has created to inspire you today!
