Winter Wishes and Black Friday Scavenger Hunt


Hello everyone!  Its Kymona here from Kreative Kymona and I’m super excited about being here with you today.  I have some exciting new to share with all of you today.

It’s Black Friday!!!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!  So much food, family and friends.  I love this time of year because I get to spend it with my sibling.  All of us live in different states, so when the holidays roll around we get together and have an amazing time. Now that the food, fun and reminiscing are over its time to shop.  So many great deals all over the place.  I even saw on the news that a lady is having a Black Friday sale on her house.  Whoever made an offer today, will get the house for $10,000 less.  LOL, I can’t knock her.  Everyone loves and needs a  deal, right!

But before I get into what we have in store for you, I want to share the card I made with all of you. Our current challenge is:

Anything Goes copy

My card uses on of my favorite Hero Arts stamp set and die.  Take a look at my card:

Warm Wishes

I love this snowman!  I think he so cute.  I love how we can decorate him however we want.  I also thought he was appropriate for my post today since everyone shops for Christmas presents today.  This little guy should get you ready for a long lines today.

Take a closer look at the glitter on his hat and scarf:

Warm Wishes close up

Isn’t he just the cutest!!  I combined this set with the sentiment from the Hero Arts Stamp and Cut Let it Snow set.

To create the base of the card:

I cut the white cardstock to 1.5 inches by 5.25.  I cut the raspberry ripple cardstock to 1/2″ and adhered it to the back of the white cardstock.

I stamped my sentiment with Hero Arts Raspberry Jam mid-tone ink.

I adhered the pieces to the card base.  I adhered the snowman with foam tape.  I stamped some mini snow flakes to the card to make it look like it was snowing.

I added some Hero Arts Gems for added embellishments.

My snow man was sponged with Hero Arts Tide Pool mid-tone ink.  I colored his nose with Copic YR04 and YR07.  I added Clear Wink of Stella on the hat and scarf.

I added a couple faux stitched lines for added interest.

So what do you think of my snowman!!  Let me know!!  I would love to hear from you!!

The snowman, snowman die cut, the sentiment and gems can all be found at the a2z Scrapbooking Store. If you would like to purchase any of the supplies I used please head on over to the store and use the coupon code KYMONA15 to get 15% off your purchase.

Hello, I’m Kymona Tracey. Who am I, you ask? I am a women who never slows down and loves it. Yes... I am the energizer bunny's sister! I just keep going and going (which is something that I am working on, if you follow my weekly wishes on my blog). I am a single mother of two wonderful children who are 8 years apart. My 16 year old son is a true self-made jock who plays every sport you can think of ! My 7 year old daughter is a real life princess who loves anything crafty and girly and absolutely hates anything related to sports. Talk about yin and yang! ...but I love it!! Besides running from one activity to another with them, I work full time at a hospital (public health background), facilitate a reading group at work, teach high school students on the weekends and have a huge love of learning new things. I’ve taken classes in photography, web design, knitting, scrapbooking and card-making. I love them all, however, my true passion is card-making. I was introduced to card making back in 2004 and haven’t turned back since. I started out as a hobbyist just making cards for family and friends. People were always ecstatic when they received a card from me. What they did not know was that it made me feel just as special to make a card for them. This passion pushed me into teaching card-making classes at work with a couple of coworkers who wanted to learn how to make projects for their families. In September 2013, I made a big leap and created my blog, Kreative Kymona. Besides being a mom, I think that this has been one of my most rewarding accomplishments. Just being able to share with my world community makes life so rewarding!
