Kraftin' Kimmie Guest Designer? Wish Me Luck!

Hi Crafty Friends!,
I'm applying to be a Guest Designer for one of my FAVORITE stamp companies Kraftin' Kimmie! So wish me luck. Here is one of my FAVORITE stamp sets by Kraftin' Kimmie "Santa Paws". Dogs are my favorite animal, especially ones with reindeer antlers for Christmas ;). I made two Christmas cards with this set. I have quite a few of Kraftin' Kimmie stamp sets on my Christmas list (HINT HINT family and friends) but this is by far my all time favorite so far....

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Do you have a Favorite Stamp Company? Which One?
A: Me? Sorry... can't pick a favorite but Kraftin' Kimmie is one of the tops ;)

And here's a little bonus tag I made with another favorite set "Ewe Are Amazing"
