Tickled Pink Stamps Release Day Blog Hop


YAY - we know you've all been waiting for it so we're glad to say today is release day for the Lil Lads set from Tickled Pink Stamps. As usual the DT are celebrating with a blog hop and there is a prize in it for one lucky hopper - the full set of the release in rubber - and all you need to do is comment on every blog in hop.The winner will be announced on the TPS blog on Thursday, 17th March 2011.

The hop starts at the lovely Amy's blog - but if you're already hopping you should have arrived here from the amazing Angela's blog.

For my card I've used the gorgeous Lil Lad Eric designed by Christina Dee. I love this cool nerd with glasses - maybe it's because I've been wearing glasses since I was a teenager - and I was also a bit of a nerd - not so much the cool part though - LOL.

I found this fabulous b&w stripe tape on sale at Borders - it was sooo much fun to use and adds a fun detail. The sentiment is from Ann Vento's gorgeous Lil Lad's set for TPS - also being released today - this one fit my DP perfectly - it was fun to colour in the circles to match.

Your next stop on the hop is the gorgeous Emma's blog.

If you get lost along the way head over to the TPS blog and you'll find the hop order and all the relevant links there.
