Ahoy there!

Well, I'm back with yet another fabulous new stamp from Tickled Pink's surprise release! We have 6 NEW images to help celebrate the one year anniversary of the Lolita and Lad stamps and each one has been created by Kellie and Christina to be a 'perfect match' to an older Lolita or Lad image. There are 6 days of previews total and then a release blog hop on the 31st of May (30th for us in the States) when you will be able to get your very own perfect matches from the Tickled Pink store!

Today Lylah is back as a swashbuckling pirate lass. She pairs up with her friend Pirate Frankie from the Lil All Sorts release. But this Mistress of the Seven Seas can certainly hold her own without the help of any scurvy sea dog, don'tcha think?!
I did my best to find some suitable pirate like papers to set the scene for Lylah and once I had that done it only took a second to realize that she wouldn't want anything but gemstones to embellish the card... seriously, what would a pirate be without her treasure? ;)

As always it wouldn't be a Tickled Pink Stamps preview without a prize, so head on over to the Tickled Pink blog and leave a comment on today's post for a chance at winning your very own Pirate Lylah rubber stamp! While you are there be sure to check out all of the fab Pirate Lylah cards that my fellow Pink Ladies have created!

And if that wasn't enough excitement for one day, there is also a brand new challenge now up over on the Tickled Pink challenge blog and we want to see you use at least 3 patterned papers on your card or project. I loves me some pretty papers so this is one I could do with my eyes closed, LOL! All I had to do was raid my scrap stash and go to town... easy peasy! So if you would like a chance at winning this week's prize then why not play along?
Don't forget that your card must feature a Tickled Pink stamp in order to qualify for the prize... these include: Lil Lolitas and Lads, Pinkettes, Pink Pets and Cherries. All of which can be found in the Tickled Pink store.

Have fun and good luck! :) Supply list:

This is beyond cool Amy!! It's totally awesome! Gr8 colors and those papers and embellishments are perfect for the backdrop. Penelope Cruz doesn't have anything on Pirate Lylah. I'm sure there would be a mutiny on her ship. :) Gr8 job Amy! :)
