Super exciting news!!! Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!!

Happy Saturday to you! I'm super excited to be posting today, cause I got a 'lil announcement! I'm joining the Krafty Girls as a Guest Designer over at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps! Yippee woo hoo! I'm so excited and want to thank Kimmie for having me and all the amazingly talented Krafty Girls for their warm welcome! I'm so excited to be working with you gals, considering Kimmie and Andrea were part of the reason I (very quickly) dove back into cardmaking about a year ago after switching to scrapbooking for many years. I took a few of their classes at Scrappin Great Deals to see if I could get back into stamping and card making (which I started off doing)...and well, they litterally had me at 'hello'!

Anyway, I jumped in just in time for the challenge on the Kraftin Kimmie Stamps Blog. Every Saturday they have a brand new challenge for you to play along with! This weeks theme is LOTS OF FLOWERS!

Here's my sample:

Ironically, for my first post, I coloured up Posy for my was the very first Kraftin Kimmie Stamp I purchased at the launch party way back in October. I just fell in love with her and she was the first one in my basket.

I hand made the little flowers for my card. I have been seeing these sweet little paper rosettes everywhere lately and found a great tutorial while I was stalking Paula's's the link for the awesome tutorial from talented blogger Wendy. I had to add some with the theme this week! I added a close up shot so you can see how easy they are to make!

I hope you play along, who doesn't love flowers, especially at this time of year!!! Be sure to swing by the Blog and check out what the amazing Krafty Girls have to show you!

Have a great weekend...I know I will, I'm still doing my happy dance!!!
