Now on to this month's challenge which is kindly sponsored by Oak Pond Creations

I've been an artist since the day I was born I just never knew it. I have always loved arts and crafts. It's relaxing, therapeutic and just plain fun. As a child I used to color and craft a lot. As an adult I let real life completely take over and forgot about this past time. As a papercrafter, I wanted to make my greeting cards special by drawing my own characters and illustrations for them. I'm happy to share them with you :) Happy Crafting! <3 -Kim
