Bah, humbug!

Hello, hello... I'm back again with a second post, please scroll down to check out the new SOG challenge that starts today. Thanks!

Welcome back to another day of Tickled Pink previews for the September release. In case you missed it, we have the gorgeous new Vintage Christmas Lads and Lolitas spreading holiday cheer... or maybe not. ;)
As always they are illustrated by Christina Dee and this collection also comes with a Christmas sentiment release designed by the talented Ann.

Talk about Dickensian... Lil Lad Damon has transformed into the perfect Ebenezer Scrooge don'tcha think? I totally think so and he has quickly become my 'go-to' stamp for cheeky "Bah Humbug" type Christmas cards, which are always fun to make. ;)
And yet again, I've used the 25 Days of Christmas kit by Simple Stories... hope you all aren't getting tired of seeing it yet, LOL! Even though all of my cards from this set fall into the same color palette because of this, I still think that each card came out with it's own unique look in the end.

Now 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 Vintage Christmas Ebenezer, oops I mean Damon, rubber stamp! And while you are there be sure to check out all of the amazing cards that my fellow Pink Ladies have created too.

Oh and I've also made my card for this week's challenge over on the Tickled Pink challenge blog which is to USE CHIPBOARD on your card or project. I actually had some pre-printed Christmas themed chipboard buttons by Jenni Bowlin that were not only a quick and easy way to play but they really do make for a great finishing touch to this card.
If you would like a chance at winning your choice of 1 rubber or 2 digi stamps then why not play along this week? 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.

Good luck!
