Despite being a twenty something, I am just as in love with Disney cartoons now as when I was a kid.
I saw a trailer for their new one, The Princess and the Frog, the other day, and was inspired to ink up the adorable Princess Ava stamp from The Greeting Farm.

Just like the princess in the movie her gown is all sparkles, and I can imagine the Frog being a cheeky chap too!

Materials Used:
Stamp: Princess Ava - The Greeting Farm
Colouring tools: Promarkers
Cardstock and charm from stash

Thanks for stopping by, Katie.

Since this is our first post of 2010 (a little late I know), 'Happy New Year'.

Now that we are past the mad crazy dashing about the last few weeks has brought us, its time for a little rest and relaxation.

I think 'Me Time Anya' from The Greeting Farm sums this up beautifully, after all, what better way to relax than in a nice hot bath with a few scented candles and plenty of luxurious bubbles!

While it may still be cold and snowy outside (we had more snow than I have ever seen here in Manchester), we hope you all are staying cozy and warm and are ready for a stamping fun 2010, starting this week with some sneaky peaks and a chance to win some of our new releases soon to be hitting our shelves!

Here is a little teaser...
