Chick Challenge #18

Happy Thursday, stampy friends!  We are getting close to the weekend, and for many of our readers, that also means February school vacation!  For some (like me), that means extra time to get crafty.  For others, that means that the kids will be home and you will not be able to squeeze in much crafty time.  Hopefully we will ALL have a chance to play along at some point this week!  We have a fabulous new

(challenge week of February 16th-22nd)

Kim Bell
Ogdensburg, NY

Let's get to know Kim: Hi there!  My name is Kim Bell and I live in Upstate NY on the Canadian border.  I think I began making cards back in 2007 or 2008…..can’t really remember.  I work full time as an Internal Auditor for a credit union and I paper craft at night or on weekends.  It is my therapy.  I discovered Unity right after they opened up shop and I’ve been an {ippity} Chick since the very beginning.  The Unity people are truly amazing and so are the stamps!!  I have a wonderful husband, a son, and a chubby little Pug named Milo.   When not crafting or working, I can be found at a soccer, hockey, or lacrosse game somewhere!

Visit Kim's creative blog for some amazing inspiration:
Don't forget to visit her Etsy shop here:
You could win a fabulous {ippity} prize from Kim, just for playing along:

Kim, your project is amazing. This challenge was a bit tricky for me cuz I let my BFF borrow my Lacy Labels cart. But I did just use my hand cutter to create the fancy edge on my mats. Fun challenge, great sketch. Thanks for the inspiration!
I used Music of My Heart by Ippity!
