Kraftin Kimmie Stamps Guest!

I hinted on Thursday that there might be another secret or two around here, and today I'm so excited to share that I am the February Krafty Guest at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! I'll be joining the fantastic KKS designers for their Saturday challenges and for their February release coming up mid-month. Thanks for having me, Kimmie!

Kimmie herself is hosting today's challenge, and, being that her birthday was yesterday, her challenge theme for us is BIRTHDAY!



I kind of goofed and used a stamp (Francesca) that's no longer in the current inventory, but she was too perfect for the theme, so out she came! I colored with Copics and added some glitter around the candle flames. The papers and all the cute birthday accents (February calendar, "another year older" tab, "celebrate," and "bestdayever!") are from the Simple Stories Happy Day 6x6 pad.

Head over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps blog for inspiration from the Krafty Girls! And don't miss the birthday sale, this weekend only. More than 100 of Kimmie's favorite stamps are on sale ....  either 41% off or $4.10! I wonder if you can guess which birthday she celebrated yesterday ;)
