Sweet Springtime

This is my second post today. Are you here for the Paper Pretties blog hop? Scroll down!


It's the first day for previews for the soon-to-be-released May images over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! I adore this image I'm sharing with you, Spring Friends. Isn't she the sweetest little girl? I paper pieced her dress with some Basic Grey Infuse paper I've had in my stash forever, just waiting for the right image.

Here's a little info straight from the source: Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is thrilled to introduce a new artist to the mix....her name is Cheryl Alger!  You may recognize her name from Sassy Cheryl's where she creates digital art.  Cheryl is creating a brand NEW line of images, specifically for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!  These stamps will ONLY be available at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and ONLY as unmounted rubber stamps!  Now here's a bit about Cheryl:
I grew up outside of Staunton, Virginia, but now live in the Richmond, Virginia. I absolutely LOVE to draw and always carry a small sketchbook with me in case inspiration strikes me while I'm out and about. I have been creating digital art now for about 12 years now and have licensed my work to companies such as Kohl's, Hobby Lobby and Shopko, among others, for over eight years. I started creating digital images about two years ago. It's been a lifelong dream to become a working artist, and besides deadlines, I LOVE everything about what I do!It really helps that I have a very supportive husband and son (they also can be my biggest critics!)I have to admit.  I LOVE my job!
I have to say I think it is so cool that Cheryl only lives like an hour from me - small world, huh? KAll the stamps previewed this week will be available in the store on Sunday. You can head over to the blog to see more each day this week - you can find all the links to the other Krafty Girls and Guests who are sharing some fun samples each day!! AND.....there's a great giveaway involved! Just leave comments on all the blogs today, and one lucky winner will receive the whole set of these great new stamps by Cheryl! The winner will be announced on Thursday on the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps blog (and you can head over there to see which blogs you need to comment on!)
