Simply Sunday Challenge - Let it Snow/U R SO SWEET Week long fun DAY 1

Hey all my bloggie friends! Today is an exciting day! Today we are starting a week long crafty adventure at Getting Cricky... The challenge (well more like the fun) is to use one set of K. Andrew Design Stamp Set on a weeks worth of projects! I LOVE THIS IDEA! Although I could come up with a lot more then a weeks worth of projects from any of the stamp sets because they are so versatile and loads of fun! But not only do we get to do this but it is also SIMPLY SUNDAY CHALLENGE FUN DAY! This weeks Simply Sunday Challenge Project is Let it Snow using embossing. Fun right? I will explain how you can participate after I show you my projects.

Well I just have to say this first I am VERY new to the whole embossing thing so please excuse the lack of ability to do this well. But here are two cards I made up for this weeks challenge...

Since the theme this week is "Let it Snow" I even went outside and took my pictures in the snow we finally got this week. And boy did we get a lot... no more long fall for us. On to the shovel and boots!
Okay anyway... This was my first card. The sentiment came from K. Andrew Design Crafty Friends Stamp Set. I will be using this stamp set all week long to show you how much CRAZY FUN you can have with it (or just plain fun if you do not like to get CRAZY like me).  The saying reads "Bloggie Friends are the Best Friends". This sentiment is so fitting!! I have been making so many new and wonderful Bloggie Friends and they truly become your family! I love my bloggie friends! :) The Snow people came from a Close to My Heart Stamp Set called Snow Friends. The embossing powder is Zing from American Crafts. The background paper is just something from my scrappy pile.

My second card I like a little more. I was getting a little better at the embossing process... not much but a little! The snowflakes in the back as well as the snowman is from the same Close to My Heart stamp as above. Again I used the AMAZINGLY fun Crafty Friends stamp set. The ribbon is from Michael's. GLITTERY FUN!  You have to love that.

This is the AWESOME K. Andrew Design stamp set I used. It is Crafty Friends. I think this set is so much fun. I love my blog... it is like my own little world and everyone knows me here :) haha. But the sayings are just to much fun. :) Especially if you are a blogger! Want to Order it? Check it out HERE

Wonderful snowman card. Especially like that you photographed in the snow. Please do not send any of that white stuff to Central TX. We had snow last yr at Super Bowl time when Dallas hosted the Super Bowl & yr before that we had it on Christmas Eve.
