Introducing Pink Your Life

Today is the last day of sneak peeks for this new fantastic line of stamps from Stampendous. All the images are just begging to be colored... why hasn't the president mandated more hours in a day! lol

These designs are created by Nicoletta Zanella for Pink Your Life, a company based in Italy and is the newest distributor of all things Stampendous and Dreamweaver Stencils. If you ask me I think it's a win-win!

These stamps are not quite yet available so you'll want to check back on the Stampendous blog for the release.... I hear from Laura Weed at Stampendous that there will be prizes after they release! Here is the master hop list for today, enjoy!
