He's like thunder, he's like lightening...

Hiya friends!

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 these 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 it is all about the boys and Luca has transformed himself into the mighty God Zeus! Zeus was the king of the gods. The god of sky and weather, law, order, and fate. His usual attributes include a lightning bolt, royal scepter and/or eagle. This guy was was quite the play-ah and definitely had a way with the ladies, LOL! Which makes for some very interesting stories and even more interesting children... including everyone's favorite strong man, Hercules! ;)

As far as our Luca/Zeus goes though, I like him more for the energy and confidence that he seems to exude. How great is he for that motivational or job well done type of card for that special guy in your life?
Which is exactly what I put together here. Guy cards can be kinda hard for me because I struggle with how to embellish them. Luckily I had just gotten this great Fun Day paper pad from my pal Lisa (thanks Lisa!) and this print totally conveyed the look I was going for with Zeus. After that I don't think it needed much else. :)

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