A very Spesch-al princess

Mornin' folks!
I hope the sun is shining on you wherever you may be. :)

So have you seen the new Spesch digi stamps yet? My stampin' friend, Tracey, has started her own etsy shop and there is some really CUTE stuff there... I highly recommend you check it out! I got this beautiful White Queen image there and I just love her, she was so much fun to color! I think of her more as a princess than a queen and I gave her brown hair so she would look like my favorite princess... Princess Amy from one of my all time fave books from my childhood, "The Ordinary Princess". Have you read it? I simply adore it and still have my original copy that I'll likely keep my entire life, I love it so. :)
Anywho... like I said, this princess really spoke to me and even though she's not rubber (maybe someday though... fingers crossed!) I had to have her. And Spesch is just getting started so I'm anxious to see what the future holds!

Well, as much as I would love to stay and chat with y'all work beckons so I must skeedadle... TTFN!

Hi Amy, this is adorable. I checked out her store and I just had to have the mad hatter. I usually don't consider Alice in wonderland on way or the other, but it was just too cute to resist! Your colors a great as always! Love how you colored her. I didn't read the supply list, but did you use liquid pearls? Love it. I am home sick this morning, so I am not posting today. :( Have a great day. Lisa
