Welcome BACK!!! Challenge 60 - Time to Unwind!



Welcome to our very first challenge of the New Year, 2011!! And what an exciting year it's going to be! Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps has lots of fun new things planned for you! We can't wait to share!! And the first thing we're going to share is a HUGE new release of stamps.....next weekend!! Haha!! BUT you don't have to wait that long....we have some little snippets up on the Facebook fan page to tease you! So hop on over there and check them out. THEN our Krafty Peeks will begin on Thursday, January 13th!! Yay!

So let me just say how absolutely thrilled I am to see the fantastic cards created by some of our DUDES! The cards that were submitted for the challenge were AWESOME! And because it was SO heartwarming to see (some people actually posted pictures of their dudes working on their cards) these guys joining in and crafting with us, I'm going to send a stamp to EACH of the four submissions because they are ALL winners in my book!!! So please be sure to email me with your mailing details and I'll get your stamp out to you!

ANOTHER exciting thing I have to share is that we have an awesome new Krafty Girl joining us!!! Angie Baker is a Canadian stamper who is Copic certified and teaches classes at her local scrapbook store and she just as sweet as can be!! We are thrilled to have her join us full time and be sure to stop by her blog and welcome her!!

ALSO we've got some incredible Krafty Guests helping out for the month of January!! I can't wait to show you what they've created for the release next week!!! Eeek! And they've got some designs for this week's challenge too!! Say hi to Suzanne Dean, Jessica Diedrich and Tori Wild!!

Now on to this week's challenge!! Our first hostess of 2011 is the magical Michele!! Her challenge is called Time to Unwind.....and that means NO ribbon, NO twine, NO string, trim or lace...no fibres of any kind! Eeek! That's quite a challenge for some of us, isn't it!? But I think our designers did a fabulous job and we can't wait to see YOUR designs too!!

Please join us for this fun challenge and if you use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp, you'll be in the drawing to win the Krafty Stamper as featured on Michele's awesome card! Be sure to link up your card at the bottom of this post by clicking on the little blue froggie.
