Tracey is going to give away all the stamps to one lucky hopper...and two stamps to another! How awesome!!

It's so exciting... Spesch stamps have a new designer on board by the name of Suzui. With her gorgeous little chibi’s you can’t go wrong. And who can forget Sylvia – with a gorgeous stamp design based on Tracey’s daughter Ashley.

I have cards to share with ALL the images today... so maybe my post is a long one.. haha .. but I love all the images so had to use them all...

First up... is the gorgeous Ashley (designed by the lovely and talented Sylvia)
... this is the card I made for Tracey's birthday last month ... I only used part of the image .. cropping it with a nestie...

and now for these SWEET chibi images by Suzui...

and the last card is the one I have made for the latest Lollipop Ladies challenge which is inspired by Rainbow Paddlepops :D I think this gorgeous Chibi - Lidia is my favourite chibi :D

Make it Crafty images

This morning I have a couple of cards that I made.. just for fun! I have used images that I purchased from Zoe at Make it Crafty... Tell you what those digis sure are beautiful to colour in!!! :D Ok so first up we have....

Mermaid Cordelia

I've paired her with paper from my stash AND a sentiment from The Greeting Farm :D I have used LOTS and LOTS of markers on her... and I'm sorry that I have not recorded them... but her til has nearly all the BVs along with a couple of Vs and her hair has BG0s and BG70s :D

and for the second card I've made I used...

- I have layered her on top of the goregous rainbow background :D this was such a fun little scene to colour in. I followed Zoe's tips on colouring the rainbow and as much as I hated to take the colour past the line on the rainbow I think it has worked quite well! LOL!

thanks for stopping by!
