Victorian Steampunk blog hop!

Hello, hello!

Today is the big day... yep, it's release day for the "Lil Victorian Steampunks" from Tickled Pink Stamps and as always we are celebrating with a blog hop! :)

Everything kicks off right here at my blog and you will have two days to play along in the hop for a chance at winning one of two awesome prizes that are up for grabs! One lucky hopper will win the full set of six Victorian Steampunks in rubber as well as the coordinating sentiment set and the other winner will get the full set of six Victorian Steampunk digi stamps! I'd say that is pretty great incentive to join the fun, what'cha think?

I used the ever enigmatic Lilith on my card today and I think that she personifies the Steampunk ideal perfectly. Whose got time to be slowed down by long skirts and cumbersome bustles when there is so much inventing and adventuring to be done? This independent lady looked to me like she stepped right out of the Wild Wild West movie and once I decided to pair her up with this particular sentiment her story totally came to me. I see her as a secret agent working alongside Captain James West and U.S. Marshal Artemus Gordon, chasing down villains far and wide... hence all of the travel inspired stickers that I added to the design. And I bet that Lilith is pretty darn good at her job, LOL! ;)

Alrighty, I won't keep you any longer... your next stop on the hop is to Angela's fabulous blog and if you ever get lost along the way just check back at the Tickled Pink blog for a complete list of participants. Oh and don't forget that the big sale in the TP store starts today as well... just in case you can't wait to get your hands on some fantastic new rubber! Buy 3 rubber stamps and get a 4th FREE... pretty awesome!
