Oak Pond Sponsors Forever Friends!

Happy New Years Eve!  Oak Pond Creations is sponsoring Forever Friends and today starts a new Challenge.  The winner of this challenge will receive three images from the Oak Pond shop on Etsy.  The wonderful designers at Forever friends have kindly asked me to join in as a guest designer and I happen to have the perfect occasion for a new card.   I'm using one of my new images "King of Courage"  and I designed this card for my dad who turns 75 in a few days.   Stop over at Forever Friends, check out the challenge rules (this week it's Anything Goes) and join in the fun!  I look forward to seeing your designs and projects.  Hugs, Happy Crafting and Happy New Year!
Digital Image:  Oak Pond Creation's "King of Courage"
Papers:  DCWV designer paper and I printed my image on the smooth side of Southworth Linen 65lb card stock.
When coloring with Prismas, it gives a canvas look to your finished image without pushing your pencils over a bumpy texture.
Tools/Embellishments:  Hemp Twine, Prisma pencils, Martha Stewart Punch

Again, thank you to the amazing Forever Friends Challenge Design team.  You are one talented group of individuals.  Thank you for the Design invite this month and I will wear my badge with pride.
Hugs to you <3-Kim

Show and Tell with Linda

Good day crafty friends.  The Hecker family at Oak Pond prays for comfort and peace for the victims and families of the senseless tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut yesterday. 
I wanted to share a lovely card featuring Oak Pond Creation's digital stamp
This card was created by Linda of Turtle in the Sand.  Linda did an amazing job on her creation.  Please visit her blog and leave her some lovely comments on an amazing card.  Hugs and Happy Crafting! <3-Kim

Earn a free digi from Oak Pond!

Hello my crafty friends.  I'd like to offer you a chance to earn a free digital stamp from my Etsy shop.  In October during breast cancer awareness month I sketched a digital stamp called battle gear.  All 2012 profits from this stamp are going to Link Up for Pink's Relay for Life page.  In an attempt to raise money for this charity, from now until December 31, I will send you a free stamp if you complete three steps:
2. Become a follower on the Oak Pond Creations facebook page
3. e-mail me at, let me know you've completed the three steps and give me your choice of one digital stamp you'd like to have from my Etsy Shop and I will e-mail your new digi!
Thank you so much, hugs and Happy Crafting! <3-Kim

New Digi and a New Shop Section!

Happy December!  I hope this month finds you Joyous and Merry.  I wanted to introduce my new image and tell you about a new section in my Etsy store.  I've added a Discount Digi section so be sure to check it out.  I also wanted to let you know that I've added more security to my blog.  Recently, I have had to monitor and delete spam comments and links at an alarming rate so I have added some security features that may require you to use word verification.  I'm sorry to my loyal commenters :(  Please keep the comments coming.  They inspire me so much.  I hope you enjoy my new digi!  I don't know about you but I can ALWAYS use a little brave.
Hugs and Happy Crafting<3-Kim
