Me, here, still awake. I fueled too much coffee today I guess. Well my mojo is still fueling too and here is my entry for the Challenge No. 5 at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps' Winter Krop.  We had to create a one layer card. I think that meant no paper layers.

This is Bessie Bus Stop....

Kraftin' Kimmie Winter Krop - Challenge No. 1 - A Brand New Stamp

Hello Crafty Friends:

I have been enjoying the challenges over at the Kraftin' Kimmie Krafty Friends' Facebook Page.  There was a Winter Krop today and the challenges have motivated me to get those cards done.

This is called, "You're Nifty by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.

 I added the floor to give this an Ice Cream Parlour look.

Some Latte Ladies....with Art Impression Stamps

Hello Crafty Friends: I hope you are crafting today and fueling up with some liquid gold, COFFEE!
