The random winner of last week's challenge is......Sally Cicada!!! Congrats girlfriend, and be sure to email me with your mailing information so I can get your rubber out to you!!

This week's challenge is brought to you by Guest Krafty Girl, Melanie!! When she said she wanted us to do an 'aperture card', I said, 'A what?'...hehe. After she explained that she was just using her big words for 'window card', I got it! haha! So we'd like to see some Kraftin' Kimmie images peeking out from some window cards this week!!

The random winner from this week will receive the Bird Fairy image and coordinating sentiment stamp, as featured on Melanie's gorgeous card!! If you play along with us this week, be sure to link us up in the comments of this post, and when you upload to Splitcoast, be sure to use the keywords KKSC15 and KraftinKimmie (all one word) and your design will show up in our Kraftin' Kimmie gallery!!!

On to this week....Guest Krafty Girl, Donna Wardle is this week's hostess extraordinaire!! She decided that her challenge for everyone this week, would be to use NO EMBELLISHMENTS on your designs!
