Aim high...


It's time for another brand new rubber stamp preview from Tickled Pink! We are super excited to be kicking off the year with some fresh, new images that are different and fun! This time the Lolitas and Lads have traveled back in time to the era of the Greek Gods and Goddesses and t
hese images designed by Christina Dee are absolutely amazing. I promise that you are going to love all six of the previews leading up to the release on January 20th (Jan. 19th for those of us in the States).

Today we are back to the boys and Lestat has become the radiant God Apollo!
Apollo was the god of light, order, arts and muses, reason, and prophecy. He was the son of Zeus and Leto and the twin brother of Artemis. As I mentioned the other day, he is the yin to Artemis' yang and where she represents the moon, Apollo and his chariot drive the sun across the sky each day. Pretty cool, no? ;)

Take a look at that pose... doesn't he just exude a 'shoot for the stars' kind of attitude that is perfect for motivational cards?!
And with some slightly different coloring and the right papers he can also work great for a very cool looking Cupid on a Valentine. Once again the Fun Day paper pad from my pal Lisa (thanks Lisa!) saved the day and pulled this card together for me. :)

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