Challenge #22 - An Eyelet Here, An Eyelet There...

Hidee ho, good stampers!! Spring is in the air....and stamps are in my hands!! haha! Life is good!

It's time for another fantastic Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge but first, a few notes!
**Kraftin' Kimmie will be out of the office for about a week! She and her fantastically supportive family are going on a little holiday for a little rest and relaxation. So the store remains open, but orders will not be shipped until March 29th. ALL orders placed on or before March 19th, have been shipped out!! So get ready to get inky with your new KKStamps!**

Also, upon my return to stampland, I hope to be releasing the Tea Party stamps and sentiment sets as single images so they can be purchased individually. Also the retailers that carry KKStamps will have the opportunity to carry them as well, so be sure to request them from your favourite stores.

NOW, on to the challenge! The random winner of last week's challenge is...........RYCRAFTY! Check out the fantastic card she made using Alicia and she altered the image a tiny bit, see if you can spot it!

This week's sassy n' stampy hostess is Michele! Remember all those eyelets we HAD to have a year or more ago? All the different colours, all the different sizes? Well, I don't know about you, but mine are just taking up space and collecting dust! SO Michele wants us to pull them out and go nuts with the eyelets! Use one or two....or use a bunch! Just make sure you're decorating with those eyelets on your design!

One more important note! **This challenge will be open until April 2nd! We've been so busy with all the new stamps (I know, poor us!) that we're taking a Saturday off from the challenge, so this one will be open for TWO whole weeks! **

If you join our challenge, be sure to link it up here so we can check them all out! And if you post it to an online gallery like Splitcoast, be sure to use the keywords, KKSC22 and KraftinKimmie. And if you're our random winner, you could win the lovely Lola, as featured on Michele's awesome card!

Now check out the eyelets on these babies!!!!

The ONLY place you can get these stamps is in the Kraftin' Kimmie store and only for a limited time! This is the only way you can get all the stamps, accessories and sentiments as a kit....our retail stores will not be carrying the kit. We may, in the future release some of the images as single stamps, but for right now, it's the whole kit and caboodle!

We ship to anywhere in the world and yes, you can order other items at the same time!!

The value of the kit is $58 but for right now, the kit is 10% off!! So hop on over to the store and be one of the first to start playing with these fantastic new stamps because it's available to order RIGHT NOW!!
