A little birdie told me...

Hello, hello!

Here we are at day five of our Tickled Pink previews of the NEW Lil Little Collection illustrated by Christina Dee... which also comes with a digi sentiment release designed by the funny and talented Cheri. The Lolitas and Lads are on the scene once again but this time we are traveling back in time to their younger days and getting a glimpse at what these characters were like as li'l tots. There are six new Lil Little's to look forward to and then they will all be available from the Tickled Pink store on Tuesday, July 12th (US time).

Today we have a very prim and proper miss Willow gracing us with her presence. She is quite the little lady as she practices a perfectly princess like curtsy. Willow is always soooo pretty so I wanted to make a pretty card for her to live in. I dug deep into my stash for the very first release from The Girls' Paperie and it was perfect. In fact, 99% of this card is made using the diecuts from the Paper Girl line. Seriously, that scallop border is the only paper I cut into for this card! Sadly, I recently read where The Girls' Paperie is no more... gosh I loved their papers and whimsical vintage look. :(
But on the bright side, I also saw where the gal behind TGP has started a new company called Authentique Paper and from the sneak peeks it looks like there will be 6x6 paper pads this time... my one and only disappointment of TGP was no small papers for us card makers. So I can't wait to get my hands on those, woot woot! :)

Anywho, I got a bit sidetracked there, LOL! Back to the previews... 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 Lil Little Willow rubber stamp! And while you are there be sure to check out all of the gorgeous Willow cards that my fellow Pink Ladies have created as well!
