Well, hello everyone and Happy Spring to you. Mind you, spring has really not arrived here in S.W. Ontario. We had some more snow a couple of days ago and the temp is still in the minuses.

Today Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps is releasing their new MARCH stamps!
As you’ve seen over the last few days in our Krafty Peeks, Annie Rodrigue has created stamps just for YOU!! Whether you love coffee, love bubble baths, love to bake or love to read….we’ve got a stamp just for you! Our Everyday Girls include Angie, Agnes, Brigitte, Caroline, Diana and Lucy!! Each one comes with a bonus accessory stamp and TWO coordinating sentiment stamps!!
Well, shiver me timbers!!! Steven Leary has created an amazing collection of cute little PIRATES!! These little swashbucklers are perfect for all those kids cards and invitations, plus your Halloween scrapbook pages…..because who doesn’t love to dress up like a pirate? We have Barnacle Brad, Becky Broadsword, Cannonball Cameron, Cap’n Charlie and One Eyed Willie! Stinkin’ CUTE!!
We also have a brand new set of Krafty Quotes for you!! These stamps are larger in size than your average sentiment stamps and are perfect as the focal point of your scrappy cards and as an addition to your scrapbook layouts! This month’s set includes quotes from Mother Teresa, L.M. Montgomery, Bette Midler and Lauren Bacall!
Again we’ve got ‘Gimme Kimmie’s Kits’ for those of you who just HAVE to have all the new images! We’ve grouped each line of stamps together and called them the ‘Gimme Kimmies Kits’!!! Instead of clicking on each image that you’d like, you only have to click once to pick up a Gimme Kimmies Kit AND it’s at a discounted price!! What could be better???
You will get to see most of the new images while you sit back and enjoy our Krafty Hop! You’ll see all the Krafty Girls, as well as some very special Krafty Guests along the way!! If you want to start from the beginning, just head over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie Challenge Blog! As you hop from blog to blog, be sure to leave a comment at each and every stop because some lucky stampers will win packages of stamps from the new release!! And when you’re done hoppin’, be sure to head over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie shop, because ALL the new images are NOW available!
Today I'm using one of the wonderful set of Quotes. Very strangely my card ended up pretty much as I pictured it before I started. That almost never happens!! I chose the quote 'Peace Begins With A Smile', from Mother Teresa. I used my Mega Ovals to stamp the quote onto and the paper I used for the background and for the rest of the card, is K & Company Classic. I love it, it's so soft and antique looking. I framed the oval with some Rose Red cardstock cut out with my Scalloped Mega Ovals. I popped it onto some more of the patterned papers and put some ivory lace across the join between the papers. I added some Prima Hydrangea flowrs with some punched leaves among them.
Now, if you have come here from Elaine's fabulous blog, you are in the right spot. From here you need to go to Jeanne's 'Inky Paws'. Don't forget to leave a comment at each blog as you are hopping, that way you will have more chances to win some of the wonderful new stamps. And be sure to visit Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps when you finish as all the stamps are available.

Well, today I am posting a card for the ABC challenge, which is to use pink on your creations. Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is sponsoring this week's challenge and one lucky stamper will win two Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.
Now, I love pink and brown so I used this yummy sparkly paper, which I've had a long time, but I love it. I hate to think of when it runs out! Anyway, for my card, I used Lavender the quilter. I hadn't used her yet, but I have a very dear friend who has an upcoming birthday and she is a wonderful quilter. Now I just have to remember to mail it when the time is right!! I coloured Lavender with my Copics and used some Close to Cocoa to frame her and some Regal Rose behind that. My patterned papers are matted onto some Regal Rose and the card base is Close to Cocoa. I added some brown stretchy ribbon given to me by my DD and some Prima Flowers and mini roses in the corner of my card. I stamped the Birthday Wishes and punched it out with my Modern Labels Punch, then sponged it with Regal Rose ink. Oh, and I added a little Stardust Stickles to her eyelids.
Well, I hope to be back on Saturday for the next Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge. Hmmm, wonder what it could be?!!
