Boy oh boy...

Good morning!

Today I am switching gears and jumping right into previews for the new Tickled Pink Stamps release which is all about the boys this month. Sure, we know Frankie and Luca from past releases but they've got some new buddies joining them that I can't wait for you to meet!

We are kicking things off with Eric and just between you and me, he is my favorite little cutie of the bunch. What can I say, those brainy boys are always tops in my book... age of the geek, baby! ;)
I can just picture Eric playing a classic video game, like Space Invaders, on his laptop in between texting and tweeting with his pals. That is why I paired him up with this fun paper from DCWV and not much else. :)

Of course you'll want to be sure and head on over to the Tickled Pink blog for even more cool Eric inspiration from the rest of the Pink Ladies. While you are there don't forget to leave a comment and get entered in to win your very own Eric stamp! He will also be available for purchase at the Tickled Pink store with the rest of the gang illustrated by the fab Christina Dee next weekend... yeah!

Hi Amy. WOW, between you and Fran I am having a hard time not smiling this morning. I love Lil Lad Eric and I think you are right, he does need to have his Atari out playing Space invaders. I can not believe that they have dp that looks like this. Awesome! I love your card. It reminds me of when I still lived at home and we were not allowed to watch an R rated movie. Of course HBO had just come out and they didn't play anything of the kind until after 9 or 10pm anyway. lol...God I'm getting old because I wish life was that simple. heehee I think Eric makes a great red head by the way. Totally Awesome my friend. lol Hugs, Lisa
