First day of the Pink Cat Studio Sneak Peeks!!

Good morning to you all!!

As you probably already know, today is the first day of the sneak peeks of the Enchanted Lily stamps by Pink Cat Studio!!!!! I know a lot of you have been waiting for this particular stamp set.

I'm sure you will all love these gorgeous new fairies just as much as I do. Melissa again did an amazing job... she is just so talented (you should see what is coming next month). The new set contains four gorgeous stamps and sentiments to go with them. Today we will all be showing you our cards with this lovely enchanted Lily on the swing. And... here is what I did with this stamp:

This card took me hours to create, there is an incredible amount of handstitching on there (I don't have a machine) but the end result is not as pretty as I had it in my head. I do hope you like it though... one thing is for sure, you've got to love this gorgeous image!

I'm sure my fellow Design Team members (I've added their links on the right) have created incredible creations with this stamp so be sure to check them out, I know I will. And this month we are joined by our first Guest Designer, Suzanne Dean. I have been a big fan of Suzanne's work since I first started searching for inspiration to use my stamps. A link to Suzanne's site has been on my blog since I started it so.. I guess that tells you enough about how gorgeous I think Suzanne's work is. I can't wait to see what gorgeous things Suzanne will do with the new release. So good to have you on the team this month Suzanne!!!

Have a great blog hop everybody! Hope to see you back tomorrow for TWO (yes TWO!!) sneak peeks of the new set! Have a great saturday everybody!!
