Gabby...A Kraftin' Kimmie Sneak Peek!

Welcome back to Day THREE of the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps MAY previews!!! Wanna know the random commenter who is the lucky winner from yesterday?? Well, ALL the winners of this week will be announced at the LIVE online RELEASE PARTY TOMORROW night!!! Go HERE to get all the details!!!

Today we have THREE of the new stamps from our BEACHY GIRLS collection!!! We'll share the other three tomorrow! These gorgeous images will really get you in the mood for sun and sand!!!  Today, we'll introduce you to GABBY, JACQUIE COUSTEAU and LEILANI!! 


Here's my card featuring Gabby. I absolutely LOVE this stamp! Volleyball is my favourite sport and I play in a league through the school year. I love watching beach volleyball, but I don't play it for a number of reasons.  First of all, I don't fair well in the hot humid weather...it doesn't agree with my asthma. Secondly, one of the downsides of being a redhead with super fair skin is that I pretty much burn instantly. Thirdly, there's the whole beach volleyball uniform...NOBODY needs nor wants to see that much of me. ;P   So ultimately, I pretty much avoid the sun at all costs, lol. It's taken me many years, but I've come to terms with my pastiness. ;)  Anyways, back to Gabby...I like to pretend this is what I look like when I go up for a spike! In actuality, I know I don't even come close to looking this good, but a girl can dream right? I love the action in this image, and I adore her hair!!



Here's a close up:
