Woohoo!!! It's finally here!!!...
The April Release is NOW available!!
at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!!
The FOUR new clear stamp sets that we've been sharing all week are NOW up in the krafty shop and we're celebrating with a Krafty HOP!
So grab a nice hot beverage, sit back and relax while you hop around and enjoy all the amazing creations from the
Krafty Design Team and Guests!!

 
For the hop today, I decided to feature this adorable little fox from the Puddle Pals set.  I absolutely love him and I think he might be one of my most favorites!  I chose some sweet little patterned papers that fit the theme and colored my image to match.  After layering it all together, I stamped my sentiment on a die cut cloud and popped it on the page using foam tape.  Then I tucked a tiny little sun in behind.  Some paper flowers finish the card off.
