It's Tickled Pink hop time!

Welcome to the weekend!

Tickled Pink Stamps is celebrating our March Lil Lads release with a super fun BLOG HOP! :)
We are kicking everything off right here at my blog today and my card features Sir Rupert Foxalot. This dapper gent is sitting down to a spot of tea, deep in the heart of the 100 Acre Wood. There he enjoys civilized conversation with his fellow tea loving animal friends. I used the digi version of Rupert so that I could blow him up to 'big head' size. Once I did that, the Kraftin Kimmie tea stamps where the perfect accents... can't you just hear Rupert asking, "One lump or two?" in a proper English accent? LOL!

Alrighty, next I'm going to send you on to Ann's blog, she is the designer of the fab Lil Lad sentiment set, and if you ever get lost along the way just check back at the Tickled Pink blog for the complete list of hop participants. There are stamp prizes hidden throughout so don't miss a stop! Everything starts today and ends on Wednesday (Tuesday here in the States) with winners announced on the next day. And don't forget that all of the stamps are now available in the Tickled Pink store!

TTYL! Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill and PTI
paper- October Afternoon (Campfire)
stamps- Tickled Pink (Sir Rupert Foxalot), Kraftin' Kimmie (tea pot, sugar bowl and sentiment)
