Peace & love

Good morning!
I hope those celebrating had a truly wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday! :)
I'm enjoying one more day off today but you won't catch me braving the Black Friday shopping crowds... no sir-ee. I tend to get a bit claustrophobic in big crowd situations so no deal is worth that stress for me. Luckily there are plenty of Cyber Monday deals to be had! ;)

So today I've got a card that is playing double duty as a Tickled Pink preview and the last Lil Lolita Boutique challenge. I've had this 'big head' Kellita semi-colored ever since I made my straight hair Copic tutorial a few months back (it took me three tries before I got the video right). Anywho, I thought that she would pair nicely with these brand new Christmas Sentiments stamps that will be available in rubber only at the Tickled Pink store very soon. They are designed by the talented Ann Vento. Not only are there new stamps but Kellie is also bringing you a first to Tickled Pink Stamps, our very own DIE! How exciting is that! This die will go around the frame stamp you'll see in some of the other Pink Ladies previews. And if you would like a chance at winning this fabulous sentiment set and the die just be sure to leave a comment over on the Tickled Pink blog and then don't miss the blog hop tomorrow as well!
Now I also used the sketch from the very last Lil Lolita Boutique challenge that is running this week. If you've been playing along with us don't be sad... we've got big plans to bring you a brand new challenge, one that will include all of the ever expanding range of images available from Tickled Pink Stamps. :)
Until then, why not pull out a Lolita and join us in this final LLB challenge... the prize this week is your choice of five rubber stamps from the Tickled Pink Store!
Toodles!

Hi Amy. This is super sweet. I love her hair and the way you have colored her. The papers are awesome as well. I am heading out to work again, so even if I had the big bucks, lol I wouldn't be out and about with all the crowds either. I did get a ton of emails for online stores that boy oh boy it's a good thing I don't have any extra cash or the kids and Jerry would be getting crafing items for Christmas. lmbo....Have a wonderful day off. Hugs, Lisa

You breathe life into these lovely images!!
So, are the new stamps available in rubber only, or at the Tickled Pink store only? I keep reading it each way and can't decide which it is supposed to be! :-)Traci
