Challenge 138 and a Big WELCOME!!

Welcome to this week's Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge!  But before we get to that....we've got some very special people to introduce you to......some NEW KRAFTY GIRLS!!!!  We are thrilled to have these FOUR AMAZING krafters join the team....I'm sure you will agree that they are FANTASTIC!!!  

Here's a little bit about them:

Hi everyone! My name is Alyce and I am so excited to be joining Kraftin' Kimmie as a design team member!I am so honored to be creating with such a talented team as the krafty girls :)

 I have a real passion for crafting and am always spending my spare time making something. For my day job I am a full time interior designer, but I have found that crafting is a great avenue to explore my creativity. My background in design has always had me experimenting with different techniques and concepts, and one thing led to another and I found copic markers and card making – my two loves!

My partner and I have no children, though we do have a little fluffball that gets all of our love and attention – and gets spoilt rotten! hehe 
I live in Australia, and my work can be seen at kitandclowder.blogspot.com. Feel free to stop by and leave a little love!

Hi, my name is Jessie Rone, and I am THRILLED to be here!! When Kimmie asked me to be a guest designer for June of 2012, and then again for July, I never IMAGINED it would develop into me being a FULL TIME Krafty Girl!!! It has been a dream of mine to be on the Krafty Girls ever since I laid my eyes on the first stamp released by Kimmie, and now my time has finally come! I have been stamping since 2002, and have been very active in the stamping community serving on several design teams, and working for several challenge blogs. I feel truly blessed to be here, and for the friends I have made through this fabulous hobby! I live in Evansville, Indiana with my boyfriend of 3 years, and work for Office Depot. Stamping is my passion, so I keep pretty busy with it! I look forward to getting to know my new teammates, and getting to meet all of the Kraftin' Kimmie fans!! 

My name is Kim O'Connell and I am Clinical Social Worker by day and a mad crafter by night.......and early mornings.  I am professional chauffeur to my soccer playing 10 yo daughter and baseball playing 8 yo son and the wife of a husband who wonders how I turned into a "crafty nerd."  I started stamping in 2009 when I took my kids into Michael's  to buy some things to make home made Easter cards.  That $1 stamp set in the clearance bin has multiplied like bunnies and my crafty supplies have taken over the house.  I would describes my style as clean but not so simple and I LOVE to color with my copics!  I am crazy excited to be joining this ridiculously talented group of woman and I am looking forward to coloring up all of these fun images as part of the Kraftin' Kimmie design team!!  

My name is Sheri and I live in Orange County, CA where I am married and have a beautiful daughter who always makes her mom so proud. My baby girl and her wonderful husband have blessed us with the most AMAZING grandchildren...ever! We have a long-haired dachshund named Bayleigh and 1 very fluffy cat named Sarah Leigh. I am just over the moon about being a Kraftin' Kimmie Girl!
