Far out!

TGIF fellow stampers!

Before I get to today's preview I just wanted to take a minute and apologize for not getting around and commenting as much this past week. Blogger has been giving me fits off and on where it keeps telling me I need to sign in again and again when I try to comment. Hopefully this new kink will get worked out by the Blogger people soon... oy!

Well here we are at day four of Tickled Pink's surprise release! We have 6 NEW images to help celebrate the 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. How cool is that?! :)
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 Stefan has donned a groovy headband, bell bottom jeans and some love beads and I think he makes for one very far out 60's hippie dude! Stefan's perfect match is Hippie Willow from the Lil Fashionette release. Now my card may not feature Willow, but that's just because Stefan is gassing up his VW bus before picking her up for their cross country trip. This pair of flower children have big plans of traveling all the way to Haight-Ashbury in San Francisco... hopefully that van can get them there, LOL! ;)

As always it wouldn't be a Tickled Pink Stamps preview without Kellie offering up a great prize now would it? If you want a chance to win this new guy, all you have to do is leave a comment on today's Tickled Pink post... it's as easy as that! And don't miss the rest of the Hippie Stefan fun while you are there!

This is cool, baby. My Hubby's name is Stefan, and he looked a lot like this when I met him (except his was even longer!!) Oh well, it WAS a long time ago :-) Thanks for sharing, Dee

How cool is this, great scene Amy! When commenting, try this: when you sign in again, UNCHECK the "stay signed in" block and it'll work. I stumbled on this just by trying and it worked. Seems to work for the other people I told too so hope it works for you. Have a great weekend!

Hi Amy, this is absolutely adorable! I love his van and the old and I am sure much CHEAPER to buy gas pump. Great scene! I really am digging Stafan and the gang. lol... Now as for blogger all the GGgggrrr happening this week. Well, both Chrissy and I seemed to have discovered that when it asks you to sign in with your email and your password un-highlight the leave me signed in and it should work. Mind you if you get out of blog world after you will have to sign in again, but at least it lets you commment. I tell you I was ready to throw a fit I was so upset the other day. Hugs, Lisa
