Merry Christmas

Welcome to the weekend everybody!

I can't believe we are almost through sneak peeking the Tickled Pink previews for September already! This is the last of our lovely Lolitas but there is still one final lad tomorrow that I think you will go 'nuts' over. The new Vintage Christmas Lads and Lolitas are illustrated by Christina Dee, and this collection also comes with a Christmas sentiment release designed by the talented Ann.

Today we have a Christmas beauty that will take your breath away. Lil Kellita has been transformed into a regal looking 'mistress of the manor' who is making sure that her home's holiday decor is absolutely perfect for the big celebration. I just think that she is soooo elegant in her ruffled gown and her potted poinsettias... sigh. Even though I would be hard pressed to pick a fave from this release she just may be the one (shhhh! Don't tell the others!) LOL

And I'm going to sound like a broken record when I tell you that, yes, once again I've used the 25 Days of Christmas papers by Simple Stories. Though this time I also threw in some Making Memories poinsettias to embellish a bit and see that gorgeous triple pearl stick pin in the ribbon? My good bloggin' buddy Kris makes those and I was lucky enough to get a few more for my stash here recently... thanks Kris! :)

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 Kellita rubber stamp! And while you are there be sure to check out all of the gorgeous cards that my fellow Pink Ladies have created too.
