cuhrazytoosdaysept2015

 

The idea behind CRAZY TOOSDAY is for us to “give back to you”.. our amazing sistahs… A little gift :) It’s a great opportunity to stock up on gifts for yourself or other sistahs… an “excuse” to shop.. (I mean how can you refuse ?) and , well, just because.

Don’t forget, this special is like Cinderella’s chariot LOL.. at midnight, it disappears.. so get crackin’!

Mwah to da sistahs who love a good deal :)

OHHH almost forgot!  Our Stamp of the month is UPTOWN GIRL SOFIA is a SICKY!  20% off all month long!

Wow.  I’m so impressed with myself.  This was AWESOME.  This is EXHILIRATING!  You don’t know how much this “CONNECTION” we have with feedback etc means to me.. hearing your stories.. your memories…   THAT IS WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT SISTAHS.  Stamping is MAGICAL.. for that little moment in time you feel like a true artist AND YOU ARE ONE!  ALWAYS remember that.  Knowing that people can “associate” and connect with ME and my stamps means the world to me.  That’s what has kept this little business going for the last 10 years.   OMG 10 years.  Cray Cray right?

Mwah to da sistahs who really KNOW how much I love them

Hiya sistahs!  Welcome to DAY 10 of releases.. 2 more sleeps until all this goodness is finally launched!

Well today’s release is OOMF.. LOL (guess what that stands for).. I am sick of repeating myself so I decided to make an acronym.. I’m good that way (One Of My Favorites )

MEET CAROLING CHICKS.. they are singing their lungs out but there just happens to be one at the end who has had ENOUGH lol… is that not the cutest chick EVAH???  I am not really sure where the chick with the antlers found his costume but it goes no?  The middle chick is very serious.. the ones on the left are SO not paying attention.. they had to catch up on gossip.. the ones to the right I think are PRETENDING to sing .. and..well.. the last one..  hmph

The image was coloured of COURSE by our ELAINEABELLA

What a day sistahs… and WHAT A SNEAK PEEK!  OMG.. Ok I think TINY TOWNIE JENNY feels JOYFUL is one of my FAVORITE IMAGES EVAH.  Ok all of them are but I really love JENNY.  Like REALLY love Jenny.  And  guess who makes their appearance again with Jenny?  OUR CHICKLETS!!!  Yep.. today they are helpful, but I think that after this image was “captured” they fell off the stool and dropped their letters LOL.. there must have been a REALLY good STAMPOGRAPHER ( yes I made that up) taking the pictures and keeping everyone so still.  ( and YES I have a wild imagination… yup. I told you my stamps were alive.  TOLD YOU)..

Ok Since this is gonna be a long post.. let’s start!

Sistahs.. what’s a Holiday release without a HILARIOUSLY INSANE image in it’s mix?  It’s like PEANUT BUTTAH without JELLY… it’s LIKE MACARONI without CHEESE!  IT’s like POTATO without POTAHHHTO… ok that’s a bit far fetched but you get where I am going here… I could go on ya know.. but I will spare you lol

So everyone was in love with NACHO last release.. we had to introduce a HOLIDAY nacho.. of course :)  Meet NACHODEER.  I mean he is so insane looking that you can’t resist him.. LOL. I giggle every time I look at those crossed eyes staring at his Rudolph nose.  He’s a goof.  And I LOVE that goof.  I hope he gives you a giggle too.   And the sentiment?  I bet you’re singing it out loud and counting the fa la la’s to make sure I got it right. Do you know how many times I had to go over it?  CANNOT DISCUSS  LOL

Nachodeer was colored of course by our very own Elaineabella :)
