Ansley's Surprise

I am so excited to be back today to show you another gorgeous image from the Wags 'n Whiskers release. These gorgeous stamps will be going on pre-order tomorrow. Don't forget to pop on over to the Wags 'n Whiskers blog to follow as tomorrow we will be having a blog hop. The blog hop will be running from 00:00 EST/05:00 GMT. As well as seeing more gorgeous sneak peaks you will have a chance to win a stamp prize at every stop. Not only that but one lucky person will win the full first release on the Wag 'n Whiskers blog. How fabulous is that!!!

The image used on my card today is Ansley's Surprise drawn by our fabulous artist Crissy Armstrong. Ansley is Lacey's beautiful 7 year old daughter. This is one of my favourite images and I just adore the expression on Ansley's face. Ansley's little doggie Princess is actually a Yorkshire Terrier but I am sure they won't mind me colouring her as an Highland Terrier ;.-)

Wow, I can't believe that in the last few months I have not only started my own Craft store but also my own Stamp Company. I am so excited about the future and so happy that at 34 years old (well only just as it's my birthday Sunday) found something I totally love.

I would just to like to say a huge thank you from the bottom of my heart to my dear friend Lisbet. She is the most beautiful and kindest person and has been such a huge support to me in starting Bunny Zoe's Crafts and also my stamp company.

I would also like to thank my friend Debbie who is always there for me and I am so proud to have her as my friend.

My last thank you goes to my dear friends Tina and Bethany at High Hopes Rubber Stamps... I love these girls and they have been so supportive... it really does means the world to me. Ok... enough of the soppy stuff ;-)

Be sure to check out my earlier post to go hopping around the Diva's and Special Guest Diva's blogs.

See you tomorrow for our blog hop!!!
