Take a sleigh ride with me

Olo!

Today we are jumping right back into the Tickled Pink previews for September. In case you missed it, we have the gorgeous new Vintage Christmas Lads and Lolitas spreading holiday cheer. As always they are illustrated by Christina Dee and this collection also comes with a Christmas sentiment release designed by the talented Ann.

Lil Ivy has always been one of my fave Lolitas right from the very first release and this Christmas version of Ivy is no exception. Isn't she lovely? I think it looks like she stepped right out of a Dickens novel with her bonnet on just so and the fur muff to keep her hands warm while out sleigh riding with her beau... awwww, so sweet. ;)

And how could I pass up using this great piece of paper from the 25 Days of Christmas kit by Simple Stories... it's perfect! I really like how they have a lot of their paper designs made so that they can be cut down to different 4x6 rectangles. I know that they are done this way with more of an intended use for scrapbooking but I also think it works so well with card making as well. Talk about quick and easy... it gives me both the sentiment and background design all rolled into one!


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 Ivy rubber stamp! And while you are there be sure to check out all of the warm and cozy cards that my fellow Pink Ladies have created too. :)
