January Blog Hop

Howdy Folks. Well its that time again for the Kraftin Kimmie blog hop and I of course, provide some of the images. Kimmie asked me to work with the Mama duck with the baby buggy, but instead I decided to post the actual picture I took one spring of the mama duck walking to a pond with her babies. I had to stop my truck to take this picture and to keep from hitting her. I think I captured the likeness pretty well in the illustration.

And now, in case you started here first here is the text for the hop:

Today Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps is releasing their new JANUARY images! We’re kicking 2011 off with a bang as we have SIXTEEN new stamps for you!! As you’ve seen over the last few days in our Krafty Peeks, Annie Rodrigue has created some incredibly sweet BERRY GIRLS!! There are six images in the complete set and they are Abigail Apple, Andrea Acorn, Lily Lemon, Olivia Orange, Rebecca Raspberry and Stella Strawberry! Each one comes with a coordinating accessory stamp AND a bonus sentiment stamp!!


We ALL have baby cards to make every year and this month, Steven Leary has brought us the most adorable BABY images!! There are babies, teddy bears, ducks and a pair of little mice you might know! They are Baby Bubble Bath, Special Delivery, Tiny Miles and Maisie, Buggy Full ‘O Ducks and Teddy Bear Trio!! Two of them also come with matching sentiment stamps!!


Also this month we are excited to be sharing the last five stamps from our past artist, Crissy Armstrong! These stamps are just full of cuddly cuteness! Check out these adorable ANIMALS!! They are Buster the Bulldog, the Froggie Family, Cheeky Monkey, Stripes the Zebra and Tickled Pink Piggies! And each one comes with a coordinating sentiment stamp also!!


We are thrilled to have ALL THREE of our amazing artists joining in the hop today!! If you want to start from the beginning, just head over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie Challenge Blog! As you hop from blog to blog, be sure to leave a comment at each and every stop because some lucky stampers will win packages of stamps from the new release!! And when you’re done hoppin’, be sure to head over to the Kraftin’ Kimmie shop, because ALL the new images are NOW available!


Again we’ve got ‘Gimme Kimmie’s Kits’ for those of you who just HAVE to have all the new images! We’ve grouped each line of stamps together and called them the ‘Gimme Kimmies Kits’!!! Instead of clicking on each image that you’d like, you only have to click once to pick up a Gimme Kimmies Kit AND it’s at a discounted price!! What could be better???


Now you need to mosey on over to Angie's site: Luv's 2 colour.
Seeya next time.

So funny - what a lovely photo - wonder where mother duck bought her pram, perhaps she just borrowed it. I hope you didn't frighten them.
