High Hopes Hullaballoo!!

I am so excited to share this cutie with you today and would like to introduce one of the new stamps which will be available as part of the new releases this Sunday. Crissy has done an amazing job as always and the new release is bursting with so many fabulous designs!

I chose this little girl to colour first as she reminded me of my Zoe with her plaits. I just love her little heart patch on her dungarees and the little heart button I have added is from Zoe's little jeans when she was about 2 or 3. The fimo heart was sent to me from my friend Stephanie - thank you! The papers are again Imaginisce - Twitterpatted. I'm having real trouble putting these cute papers down!

Several of the Divas will be sharing peeks from the new release on their blogs and galleries each day!! So hop around and see who's got 'em!! The Diva's links are at the bottom right of this post.


Before I go I just want to thank Alex for passing the above award to me. Thanks sweetie!

See you tomorrow with another High Hopes Hullaballoo!!

Hugs,

Lovely card Nikki! So cute :)

Kristine B. said...

Beautiful card!! Love this girl image. Ya know, I'm looking at your two daughters on the sidebar there and I'm sure you get this all the time, but Zoe totally looks like her DAD!! And Danni looks more like you. It's funny cause Half the people that comment about my girls will say that and the other half will say the opposite. Funny how dna works.
