Toyland... toyland...

Hey there, hi there, ho there!

Well here we are, we've made it to the final day of sneak peeks for the Tickled Pink previews for September. 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 one more dandy gent joining the festivities... Lestat has arrived just in time and he has even brought a great gift as well. Or was that nutcracker a gift that he received while touring Santa's workshop? I hear that you really can't beat the quality of an elf made nutcracker, they're unbreakable! Obviously I relied pretty heavily on the 25 Days of Christmas papers by Simple Stories to create my little story for Lestat today. But I just couldn't resist that fun Santa 'ad' considering... ;)

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

Hope you enjoyed the week of previews! :)

Hi Amy,
Love Lestat!! This is a terrific gentleman's card. If he was a spokes model for Santa I would definitely purchase a ton of the nutcrackers! hahaha. The papers are fantastic and I love how you did the sentiment. ;)
