And we are delighted to welcome a new sponsor to Papertake and this week it is the lovely Kimmie from

Here's a little bit about Kimmie and her gorgeous stamps -

"Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is a brand new Canadian stamp company which just opened in October! They feature images from artists Crissy Armstrong, Annie Rodrigue and Jean Grant and are both whimsical and quirky! You can find these deeply etched, unmounted rubber stamps online at their website or at many fine retailers all over the world!"

As always, please feel free to flip, rotate, re-size and generally do your own thing with the sketch and as long as we can still see the basic layout, then that will be fab xxx

This week, as well as our Guest Designer Lorraine, we are also joined by Kimmie, Tara and Andrea from Kraftin Kimmie.

And we have a bit of an annoucement girlies cos from next week, Lorraine has agreed to join us full time - well we couldn't let her go could we cos her work is just gorge - and we are so pleased to have her on board.

We are also going to be choosing our future guest designers every month from our challenge entrants, as it seems only fair that the girls who participate in our challenges should have a chance to join us.

So if you fancy having a go, just put GD after your name on Mr Linky and we will choose our next GDT from this weeks entries.
