Thank YOU!!

What a fantastic weekend! I know it's almost the weekend again, but I'm only now getting a chance to post pictures!!

Sunday was the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps release party at Scrappin' Great Deals and it was so much fun!! A bunch of the Krafty Girls were there, Crissy Armstrong was there, there were make and takes and snacks and refreshments....and of course, the new stamps were there!!!



There were SO many stampin' ladies there, coming to help us celebrate and to get their inky fingers on new rubber.....my kinda gals!! heehee! We had a beautiful display of sample cards made by the design team, along with printed copies of cards that the Krafty Girls who live far away had sent me, so we ooohed and aaahed over them all afternoon! Everything was beautiful!!

Lots of people did the make and takes....in fact, there were none left after all was said and done! They must have had fun playing with all the new images! Thank you SO much to Andrea for preparing all the supplies and stampin' up all the images....you did a great job, girl!


Crissy, Moi and Andrea

Crissy did a couple of colouring demonstrations....one with Copics and one watercolouring with Tombows. Everyone was crowded around her table the whole time. Thank you SO much Crissy for sharing your time and talent with everyone. You make it all look so easy! I am SO grateful to be working with of the most fantastic illustrators, helping to make my visions turn into rubber stamps!! Crissy and Annie, you are both oozing with talent and it's such a joy to work with both of you! I count myself very blessed!!


Tracey, Nicky, Brenda, Mom and Me

It was fabulous to spend the afternoon with so many wonderful ladies that came out to celebrate with us!! There were some old friends, some bloggin' friends that I finally got to meet in person, and some brand new friends!! My pals Nicky, Brenda and Tracey came from far and wide just to see little ol' me.....well, and maybe my new rubber goodies too!

And thank you to the local (and not so local) Krafty Girls that travelled to come and hang with us at the party!! Tara, Vicki, Diana and Andrea....you all mean the world to me!! We have got to get together more often for some serious stampin' time!!


Andrea, Tara, Mom (Diana), Vicki, Me, Sheila and Crissy!!

Thanks so much to my entire design team of Krafty Girls.....Andrea, Diana, Elaine, Jeanne, Niki, Tara, Vicki....I cannot put into words how much I appreciate the generosity of your time, your talent and your spirits! It's been such a joy to share this with you. I want to especially 'shout out' to my girl Jeanne, who is my right AND left hand gal! I could not have figured out half of this stuff on my own. I love ya, girl!

Thank you to my family....Al and Emileigh are my 'employees' and will cut or package whenever I put scissors in their hands and they are so into the whole stamp company thing! They are having as much fun with it as I am, I think! Mom and Dad, you are so supportive and I appreciate that more than words can say.



But the biggest thanks has to go to Sheila for offering to throw me this awesome launch party to help kick off my new company!! It truly was an amazing afternoon of fun, laughter, new friends, old friends and lots of inky goodness!! I absolutely adore you Sheila and can't thank you enough for being such a loyal and supportive friend in helping me start Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!!

*sniff, sniff* Okay...enough sappiness....I gotta hit the hay!
