Big news!! Tickled Pink Stamps!

Happy Thanksgiving to those in the US! Actually, Thanksgiving is probably over for most of you, but I'm thankful every day :)

I'm a day late in posting this but.....

I have some news.

I'm now designing sentiments and die cuts for 

Kellie contacted me a couple of months ago and the happy marriage between Raindrop Echo Designs and Tickled Pink Stamps began and we're now in our honeymoon phrase.  The lovely and oh-so-talented Pink Ladies (don't you just love their name?!) are starting to show previews of the new sentiment set and matching die cut.

If you haven't already, then you MUST check out their stunning creations at the Tickled Pink Stamps Blog and at the design team members' blogs.  Geez, they are over-the-top, drop-dead gorgeous creations.  You also have a chance to win the sentiment set and die cut!  Trust me, you won't regret visiting.  Kellie also has some candy up for grabs at her own personal blog, so make sure to pop over there, too!

Oh, and have you seen some of the new Lil Lolita and Lil Lads images that were just released for Christmas?  They are amazing images!  You can get the ENTIRE Lil Christmas Collection as a bundle HERE at a special, discounted price.  They come out to be a really reasonable price if you purchase the whole collection.  For my card today, I've used Lil Christmas Lolita Lilith.  Doesn't she make for a great Santa?  I've also used the new Christmas sentiment set (releasing in the next couple of days) on my card.  I paired up her with papers from the BasicGrey Jovial 6x6 Paper Pad and used about half a bottle of Stickles, lol.  The Stickles looks a lot better in real life, but refused to be photographed well.  The edges of the images were sponged with  Inkssentials Ink Blending Tool using the Vintage Photo Distress Ink Pad. 

I used the classic sketch over at the Midnight Madness Challenge Blog and also at Challenge Up Your Life (St. Nick).

Please pop on over to the Tickled Pink Stamps Blog to see the wonderful creations by the design team!
