If you came here from Bev's blog you have already seen some beautiful work. Otherwise start at the QKD blog to start at the beginning. I used Victoria again as we are getting closer to Halloween and she is a Halloween vixen to me all the way! The first card I made with her went over really well! I had so many of my friends who wanted me to make them a card with Victoria the Vixen so I have to make up so more with this lovely lass. Doesn't she inspire you to make some amazing Halloween cards for your friends, she does to me lol!

Picture the Stevie wonder song playing in the background here ...'isn't she lovely....' okay I don't remember the rest of the song but you know what I mean lol!!!! I wanted to share the 2 cards I will be teaching this coming Sunday at SGD at our monthly copic class featuring Greeting farm stamps. I HAD to use her- I mean her cuteness is too much!!!! The stamp is actually called Snuggle. too much! Do you want to see the other card...okay...it's oozing with vampire loveliness....the Greeting Farm has an Edward stamp!!! I don't know if you can see it in this pic (maybe click on it to make it larger) but his skin sparkles like another Edward I know.....sigh....sorry I have advance screening tickets to see New Moon and I am getting to be on Edward alert!!!!! If you have time this coming Sunday contact SGD and come and join Kimmie and I at our class. If you can't come but would like a card kit we sell the class kit for $12 with a limit of 4 kits made up. I would love to see you there so hopefully you can make it, we always have so much fun!!!!
Okay, now I have a huge favour to ask. I am in the process of starting to shift my blog here on typepad to blogger (it's free) to help reduce costs this year. Can you do me a favour and if you are one of my followers here, or if you would like to follow me can you go to my other blog and follow it instead? If you could leave me a comment when you have moved over it will help me know when its safe to turn this one off. My new blog can be found here and it's called mystampingheaven.blogspot.com, Easy peasy lol. thank you so much my wonderful readers, I appreciate you so much and hope you have a fab day!! Cheers, Andrea

I am so happy to share that we have almost enough kit club members for our monthly kits that truly there are only a handfull left for the store to sell online or in person. The perks for joining the monthly kit club are that you get 15% off the price and you get to pre-pick which stamp you want in your kit before they are out for sale. Oh and it gets mailed to you before it goes live for the rest of the world. Contact SGD if you want in on the coolest club in town....I am thinking we should get kit club blinkies for club members- does anyone know how to make blinkies????
Well, I am off to take more stuff into SGD for their Garage sale today....I picked up some sweet deals from Julia's box- loved the Kim Hughes line of stamps from CHF...I am over the moon with my garage sale finds! They are open till 4pm today if you want to check it out...
It`s time for our first challenge and it`s one we can all use- make a birthday card! I used Francesca for 2 reasons- she holding birthday cupcakes and also because I haven`t used her and showed her on my blog yet and she ROCKS!! I can`t get over that funky hat, love it! I didn`t intend to cut her out but I tried to do the funky antique backgrounds everyone is using and it bombed- seriously bombed. TIP** don`t try new techniques on your freshly coloured finished image- try it on scrappaper first. Yep from my mistakes to hopefully saving your card lol.
To play along with this challenge you need to create a birthday themed project...a card, a project, a scrapbook page...with the birthday theme! And we realize that not a lot of people have their Kraftin' Kimmie stampsyet, so feel free to use whatever stamps you do have! Maybe you will be our winner this week!
Be sure to link us up in this post, so we can all check out your designs! If you post them to an online gallery, like Splitcoast, please use the keywords, KKSC1 for this week!
The random winner will receive.....their choice of one of the new Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!! Cool eh! Click here to go to the challenge blog and see what the DT has made, drool worthy let me tell you!
OH and feel free to grab our Challenge Blog blinkie on the challenge blog sidebar. Just copy and paste the code into a new html gadget on your blog!! And you can blink like us too!! hehe!

Kimmie has the BEST stamping friends and their work is incredible! Be sure to click on their links below my chatter to see the whole blog hop today. My card today is featuring Daisy- who is fashioned after Kimmie's own puppy Daisy who is a hoot- crazy but still a hoot lol!
Before we get to that, I have to share what Sunday was like. SGD held a release party for Kimmie and it was HUGE! At one point we had about 70 people in the store. I had made up 300 make and takes and we were out of them well before closing time. So many amazing people came to support Kimmie it was overwhelming at times. I had a few EMO moments I kept to myself as I watched my friend's dream come true- it couldn't have happened to a nicer girl. I got to see Tara, Diana (Kimmie's sweetheart of a mommy) and Vicki from the DT along with Crissy one of her artists (whose talent is mind blowing) and so many other cool friends. I have to give a big wave to my new friend Vicki (hey girl- hope the drive home was okay) who also brought the awesome Jacquie to hang out. Tara is an absolute sweetie- love that girl and she brought Nicky and Dana. Oh my gosh...there is so many more people I could go on to name - let's just say it was amazing and the energy in the room was incredible! I felt like I was hanging out with famous actors! Those of you who blog hop daily like me know exactly what I am talking about!
Kimmie's online store is open for business starting today (Monday, October 5th) ....also the stamps are deeply etched unmounted rubber We have two different lines, Crissy’s Cuties by Crissy Armstrong and Moonlight Whispers by Annie Rodrigue. The styles are completely different which means there is something for everyone!
I will have some pics later this week later this week to share from the party but for now.....let's get onto the hop details ladies! First- there is a prize to be won!

I totally had to do something fun with Charlotte- she is sooooo Twisty Cute to use Michele Boyer's term for these amazing girlies! I made this frame in the colours of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps to help put on our table for our launch....speaking of which I have to run as I am off to SGD for Kimmie's launch party. If you are in the London area come and join me today at 1pm. Lots of free makentakes and treats. Okay, I am off but if you have a few minutes to spare I highly recommend visiting the other Krafty girl blogs.......just to fill your days with more twisty loveliness!
Okay......he's cute eh! When Kim described a mouse roasting a marshmallow I was thinking okayyyyyy.......interesting.... Then she showed us this image from my friend Crissy and I was like 'of course it works perfectly lol'. Crissy is such a talented artist, she blows me away with her cute whimsical images. You may recognize Crissy from her work at High Hopes stamps previously and now Kim and Crissy have joined together to make these fabulous images! Crissy's passion for her creations and her family and life truly show in her incredible images. You can meet her Sunday at Scrappingreatdeals at Kim's stamp launch party along with many of the Krafty Girl's on the design team. Sunday at SGD at 1pm- be there if you can!
Kim's store- Kraftin' Kimmie's stamps-is open for business starting Monday, October 5th. The stamps are deeply etched unmounted rubber and you will love how the images turn out. All the sentiments I have been using are from Kimmie’s Everyday Sentiment set and it comes with over 30 cute and fun everyday phrases and the set was created by Jeanne Streiff!! I haven't met her yet but I already love her!
Okay, back to getting the make and takes ready for Sunday. That's right you will have a chance to play with the images before they go on sale to the rest of the world!
Here are the links to the other Krafty Girls to hop along and see their sneak peeks for day 2!
