It's a Tom Boy Pinkette hop!

Edited to add: It looks like there was a last minute decision to postpone the hop to tomorrow, so you can play along on everyone else's blogs then...

Hello stamping peeps!

Are you ready to get your hop on with Tickled Pink's Lil Tom Boyz Pinkette blog hop? These rough and tumble girlies are sure to delight with each stop along the way. And I promise that you are not going to want to miss a single stop through all of the participating Pink Ladies and Pinkette Teamies because as always we've got some great prizes up for grabs to celebrate this release! :)

Then once you have finished hopping don't forget that all of the new stamps are now available in the Tickled Pink store. And not only can you get them in rubber but Kellie has also made the entire month of June a digi month so you can get them that way for a little instant gratification!

I used Bug Catchin' Coraline for my card today and this is one girlie that brought back some memories from my own childhood. It's not like I ever had a particular love for insects or anything but I can remember summer afternoons spent chasing grasshoppers with my cousins and my teen aged uncle. We would do some pretty awful things to those grasshoppers, like remove their back legs and leave them in the dirt driveway for the birds to swoop down and gobble up, or dig pit prisons that we would lay twigs over top of to trap the grasshoppers in and then flood them with a garden hose... silly stuff like that. It's crazy but those grasshopper afternoons will always stick with me as good times from my younger days. Anywho... I imagine Coraline will be much gentler with whatever creepy crawlers that she manages to net! ;)

Now let me send you on your way as Angela is the next blog that you'll want to be sure and visit today. If you ever get lost just reference back to the complete hop list at the Tickled Pink blog and don't forget to leave a comment there as well telling us which of these new stamps is your fave of the release and why... we would love to know!

AMMMMMMMMY! OMGod, I just had to read Jerry your grasshopper story and now he telling me all his exciting tails of hurting them. All I did with bugs was catch fire flys and watch them glow in glass jars. So onto your nicer side, your card is just so sweet and I love your colors on it. Of course your colors is awesome as always, Oh and btw, Jerry wants to know where you grew up. lol... Have a great day. Hugs, Lisa

Odd that I love these tomboy girls so much since I'm such a girly girl. I like how you have balanced out the "boy" with the flowers.

So Coraline is your alter ego then? I can't imagine she would be pulling the back legs off of grasshoppers - poor things! Heehee.

I love the layout of your card and your colouring is awesome! That butterfly twill is gorgeous too!!

Such a sweet card Amy! No one would ever know you were such a fiend as a child :) Just kidding of course. My "boyfriend" used to pull the legs off Daddy Long Legs all except 2 and then let then hobble around. It still makes me cringe to think about it!
