Welcome to Day THREE of our May Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

What's springtime like down on the farm?? Lots of FUN according to these kiddos and animals! Here are TWO new sets from artist Cheryl Grant! First is COW'S IT GOING!!!
Secret Krafty Klub members will recognize this set as they received it in their mailbox back in March! And it will be available to everyone on Saturday! It features a large main image, an extra little puppy pal and four fun sentiments!

The second set is JUST CHICKEN IN!!! How sweet are these??? There's a main image featuring Lexi feeding her chicks (with a lending paw from her kitten), and two additional animal images with a mother hen and a gorgeous pony! And there's four coordinating sentiments!


This set is very near and dear to my heart as my grandpa was a dairy farmer and would tell us stories about growing up on the farm and the cows. My mom even has a few good stories that we all love to hear. The cows had such personality and spirit. I can imagine my grandpa lucas as just feeding the cows in the fields! 

You will see both of today's sets in action as you hop around the Krafty blogs! You'll see the list of Krafty design team members and Krafty Guests below and be sure to leave some love at each stop because one lucky commenter is going to WIN a gift voucher to the krafty shop!
