Perfect Match blog hop!

Hello, hello my friendly neighborhood stampers!

Are you ready to get your hop on with Tickled Pink's Perfect Match blog hop? I thought you might be, LOL! We are kicking off the fun right here on my blog so you are doing great already! And I promise that you are not going to want to miss a single stop through all of the Pink Ladies because not only are their creations going to knock your socks off but there are so many ways to win today that it is a bit crazy! :)

There will be two grand prize winners out of those who complete the entire hop, one will win all six Perfect Match stamps in rubber and the other will win all six of the Perfect Match stamps in digi. But the fun doesn't end there... there are also some Perfect Match couples hiding amongst the blogs today. That means you could win 20s Evie and Luca together... or 60s Willow and Stefan just by leaving comments on all of the stops along the way. I don't know about you but I'm a bit OCD in liking to have 'complete' sets so this is the perfect chance to win a cutie couple in one shot!

Oh, and don't forget that all of the new stamps are now available in the Tickled Pink store. Right now you can only get them in rubber but the next TP digi week is coming up on July 15th for all you die-hard digi lovers out there. :)

Ok, so speaking of digis... I actually used the digi version of Lil Lolita Christina for my card today. I blew her up to 'big head' size and had a blast coloring up that great head of hair of hers! I really do love the funky chic look of this modern cutie... she's just so great for all different types of cards. Her perfect match is Eric (whom I adore too) but I think he may still be caught up playing his video games or something because he was a no-show on my card yet again... sheesh, boys! LOL ;)

Now let me send you on your way as Angela is the next blog that you'll want to be sure and visit today. If you ever get lost just reference back to the complete hop list at the Tickled Pink blog and don't forget to leave a comment there as well telling us which of these new stamps is your fave of the release and why... we would love to know!

Thanks for stopping by :)

A lovely card... I think this is my favorite image, both because I'm a geek and because I've seen it so much on Tickled Pink blog banner that I completely associated it with the brand...

I love this image, I'll just have to be patient and wait for "digi day" (I am a digi kinda girl, lol) I love your colouring (of course) but the very best thing about all your cards is how balanced they are; everything "belongs", such talent there (such envy here!)
