There are three chances to enter for each month of Wonderful Wednesdays...... but this is the last one for November!! And as's ANYTHING GOES!!

Your submission must use at least one Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp but can be any theme, any style, any design and it can be a card, a scrapbook page, an altered name it!! It must be a NEW creation (so you can't submit something you made last year...haha!) and you can enter every week for a chance to win and at the end of the month, we'll draw a winner for a Kraftin' Kimmie Prize Pack!!!

**Please note that you are more than welcome to combine this Share to Win challenge with other challenges, BUT not our regular weekly challenges. This must be a new and different creation than anything you create for our Saturday challenges.

I made a little 4x4 note card for my Wonderful Wednesday project featuring one of the adorable penguins from the Just Chillin'! set. This set includes several penguin images along with several coordinating sentiments. They're perfect for cards, tags, scrapbook pages, gift many great possibilities! The paper is some old My Mind's Eye. I added a Maya Road chipboard snowflake that was painted white and then coated with Glamour Dust. The "snow" in the image is Polar White Flower Soft. To finish it off, I added a bit of baker's twine and some dollar store jingle bells.

Welcome back to day THREE of our NOVEMBER Kraftin' Kimmie Peeks!!! Today we are sharing THREE super cute new sets! SO much krafty goodness to show you today! They are called.......LOVE IS IN THE AIR!, LOVE BIRDS! and SEW IN LOVE!

First of all, I need to apologize for posting a sub-standard photo. I was unable to use a proper camera before this post was due to go live, so I had to resort to using my phone...I'll update with a much nicer photo later. The pinks really do match MUCH better in real life and the coloured images are rather washed out. I really need to install an editing program on my phone. :S  My card features stamps from two of the sets we're previewing today. The main image of the bird on the branch is from Love Birds. I also used one of the hearts from the Sew In Love actually has text in the centre of the heart, but I selectively inked only the decorative border and stamped that on the music note design paper. Oh, the papers are all from Bo Bunny Love Letters (the papers included in the November Krafty Kardmaking Kit!). The sweet pair of lovebirds is also from the Sew In Love set. 

All the Krafty Girls listed below have lots of super FUN designs to show you featuring these ADORABLE new sets, so be sure to hop over to each of them!

Additionally, our Krafty Girl design team has taken ONLY what's found in this kit (plus their own white cardstock, ink and colouring medium) and created SIX amazing card samples for you (you'll get to see them all as you hop around the links at the bottom of this post)!!!

As mentioned earlier, six of us Krafty Girls divided one of the November kits up to give you an idea of what all can be made from just one kit! My sample features the gorgeous Rose...if you fancy her, you could choose her as your $8.00 stamp to be included with your kit!  I trimmed by black card base down from 6"x6" to 5"x5" so that I could use those scraps for some die cut embellishments. The decorative black border was cut with Spellbinders Parisian Accents and the flourishes are an MFT Die...I just cut out select curls from the flourish die as my cardstock strip was skinny. The lace surrounding the image is included in the kit. I cut a larger oval out of pink cardstock for matting the image. However, in order for the lace to be more visible, I coloured the pink cardstock with a black easy way to create your own black cardstock where needed. ;)  The little metal charm part of the kit. OH! I've include a SNEAK PEAK of a set we'll be unveiling over the next few days called Sew In Love! See that teal button?? That's actually a stamp from this fabulous new set. I stamped it on patterned paper, added a bit of shading, used a white gel pen on the stitching and then covered the button with Glossy Accents. You're going to LOVE the Sew In Love set when it's revealed during previews this week! I sponged around the image with Antique Linen and Spun Sugar Distress Inks. I also used Black Soot Distress Ink on all paper edges and used my scissor edge to distress the paper.

Here's a picture of the kit in it's entirety: 

Ok, here's the list of all the Krafty Girls sharing projects created with the materials from just one kit:
