A very Spesch-al preview

Hey all!
I hope you aren't getting tired of all my posting going on but I've got so many cool things to share right now that I just gotta do it!

So my blog buddy and owner of the fun and fabulous Spesch Designer Stamps, Tracey, invited me to be a guest designer for the month of June and I was delighted to accept the position. When I saw the super cute summer digis that are being released today I was even more excited and couldn't wait to dive right in. :)
Spesch is introducing a new stamp designer, Max, to their range of images and this adorable little summertime dude is one of his designs. As soon as I printed out this cute kiddo visions of a hot beach and cool ocean waves filled my head so I ran with it and created a scene for him to live in on my card. I don't know about you but I'm always thrilled to find cool boy images for my guy cards and this one definitely fits the bill!

There are also three more images being released today that I'll be sharing later in the week but I highly recommend that you head on over to the Spesch blog to see all the fab cards Tracey and her team have created for the previews, I know you're gonna love them! :)

Cute! I like the new style you have used a bit lately, using a solid coloured in background... I like the fact that I dont cut off any hair swirls or arms by accident this way! I love the bright summery colours!

"Cool dude"!! This turned out great. I don't know where you find the time to do all these challenges, DT spots, work, and run your own stamps. You're a machine!
