Hi there,

you still with me?  GREAT!

Today we introduce you to a new illustrator named Kristin Farnsworth

Check out her website.. you will LOVE all of her images!  And stay tuned MORE to come for sure.  As you all know I LOVE children’s illustrations.. if we go to a bookstore, you will most likely find me in the children’s section looking at books.  I get SO inspired and just love the whimsy.  I guess I will always be a child at heart 🙂

Here’s a little bit about Kristin

“I simply like to make art. I’m inspired by both the unpretentiousness of children’s drawings and the sophistication of my favorite professional artists. I’ve taught children’s art classes and studied under a variety of contemporary watercolorists. My work explores the intersection of innocence and color. I’m a Colorado girl, currently living with my amazing husband and our 3 rambunctious children in Alabama. “
Kristin and I decided that her “DANDY LION” collection just had to come to life in stamp form.  I dunno , I really do feel that our stamps “give life” to images.. they are magical!
Without further adoooooo
Let’s begin introducing our brand new DANDY LION  shall we?  The great thing about these Dandylions is that you can be messy.. you can colour out of the lines.. it all works!
Here we go!
First we meet  HELLO DANDY LION


that sentiment though…




Next we have RAINBOW DANDY


Next we have PLANTY DANDY








and finally we have BUBBLE DANDY


Aren’t these ADORABLE?  I think everyone should have a collection of dandies don’t you?
All rubber stamps will be available TOMORROW March 22nd!
Let me know if you Love these as much as I do
