PKS :: Fond Farewell Blog Hop

 Good morning, friends, and welcome to the Peachy Keen Stamps Fond Farewell Blog Hop.  This is your last stop on this hop, and we hope that you have enjoyed our celebration of our 2012 Peachy Keen Design Team!  You'll not find a more special or talented group of crafters, and it has been both a pleasure and tremendous honor to serve with each and every amazing person!  It has been an AWESOME year!!

As you have seen by now, we are taking this time to celebrate by sharing a couple of our most favorite projects from the past year.  Here's what  I chose.

All Smiles #1

 This card was created with the PKSC-02 February 2012 stamp set.  This was one of my favorite images to color, and I love the awesome background stamp, which is also from PKS.  It's PK-299 Luck Day Shamrock.

 PKS June Sneak Peek #1

I made this cookie jar lid for my fur babies, Oliver and Lola.  Use this every day, and I love it!  I used the PK-442 Happy-Go-Lucky Dog Face Assortment stamps for this project.

PKS Challenge 45

This is one that I created not so long ago, but it will go down as one of my all time favorites.  It was so much fun to make, and that winking face just takes the cake for me!  For this card, I used  PK-490-2  Everyday Character Faces 1.75".
PK-490-2 Everyday Character Faces 1.75"

I'm going to give away one set of the PK-490-2 stamps to one lucky person who comments on this post.  No special instructions, other than leave me a comment and please be sure to include your email address so that I can contact you when you win!   You have until Sunday, December 23rd at Midnight to hop and comment and I'll draw a random winner on Christmas Eve and announce who the winner is then.  Each of my DT sisters have something to give you, as well, so make sure you left comments along the way as you hopped.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and for hopping along with us.  As I mentioned, this is your last stop, and we are honored that you could join us.


Just in case you started the hop here, I'm including a list of all the stops on this hop, because you're going to want to take this in, in it's entirety!

PKS Challenge 47 :: Sketch :: Happy Birthday Kathy!

 Hello and HAPPY FRIDAY!!!  I have a special card to share with you today for a very special lady!  It's Kathy J's birthday this weekend, and we're starting the party early by opening up our weekly challenge to all of our peachy peeps, so that they can wish her a happy birthday too! 

 DoBea has created a fabulous sketch, and all ya gotta do is add a Happy Birthday message for Kathy to your creation.  Pretty easy, and I know she's going to have so much fun looking at all the wonderful things our crafty friends will be sharing for her special day!  Here's what I created for the PAR-TAY...

Right here you have just ONE example of the adorable images that Kathy spends endless hours creating
so that we can continue to enjoy what we love!  Isn't this bowl of gingers adorable?
I don't know how she does it month after month, but I'm sure glad she does!!

This image is from the newly released PK-151 Gingerbread Bowl stamp set.
It was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic markers.  
The card stock, paper and embellishments were all a part of the December Peachy Picks kit, and 
this was the last month for them, as they won't be continued for the 2013 year.  :-(  I've sure enjoyed
working with those kits and I'm gonna miss 'em!

You can find LOTS more inspiration on The Peachy Keen Challenge Blog from my DT sisters.  Don't forget to drop by their blogs and leave them some love!
Please join us as we celebrate Kathy's Happy Birthday at Peachy Keen!
You've got almost a full week to link up and share the birthday fun!
It's gonna be AWESOME!!!

I'm always thrilled for you to stop by and see what I've been up to!  I hope you're ready for a fabulous weekend and I wish you lots of Happy Stamping!

Peachy Keen December Sneak Peek

 Good morning!  
Happy First Sunday of Advent!!

I'm popping in today to share with you my sneak peek for the 
December Release

As always, Kathy's got an amazing variety of new stamps for us which include adorable and
whimsical images for winter, birthday, and new years, so without
further ado, here's my sample for you...
 I stamped the champagne bottle image with Memento tuxedo black ink,
and colored it with my Copics. 

Here's a closer look, because I used my Spica glitter pens to go over the bottle to give it a pretty sparkle.  You can see it better in this picture.
 I created this card using the new Stamp of the Month Kit, and the paper and embellishments all come from the new Peachy Picks Kit.  This will be our last Peachy Picks Kit, as it has been decided this is something that won't be continued for next year, so get these babies while you can, as there are a limited number available!  I have loved working with these kits and I'm sad to see them go!  :-(  

The good news is that the Stamp of the Month Kit Club will continue!!  

Kit Members receive our Stamp of the Month kit for only $24.95 + $5.00 shipping (U.S.)!  If you buy this kit separately, it costs $39.95 + shipping so the savings are AMAZING!!!
Are you on Facebook?
Join our EVENT PAGE here so you don't miss the release party or a chance at some great prizes.
Our Release Party is scheduled for

  I hope we'll be seeing you there!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!  My fellow designers have some fabulous projects to share with you, too, so head over to The Peachy Keen Stamps Blog and check 'em out! 
I'm headed out for our annual Advent Tea at church.  It is such a wonderful way to kick off this very special season of Advent, and it's something I look forward to every year.  Ladies from many, many area churches all come together at our Parish for a time of worship and fellowship, complete with afternoon tea and the singing of Christmas carols.   It's pretty awesome to be a part of it!  Have a wonderful day dear friends, and if you're stamping today, then HAPPY STAMPIN!!
