The Sagittarius {A Sweet November Preview!!!}

Oh my goodness!
Have you seen all of the previews going on at Amy's Blog!?!? 

Amy has created a new line of Sweet November Stamps called
Zodiac Girls!!!
A stamp for every Zodiac sign!!! 12!!!
If you haven't seen them yet,
you must stop by her blog and have a looksie! They're gorgeous!
Sweet and very generous Amy has blog candy going on for each of the 12 girls ;)

Today, Amy, Nancy ThomasAlisom Heikkila and I are showing you the last 2 of the Zodiac Girls!
I was very lucky enough to receive my own sign to preview for you today :)

Sagittarius (November 23rd to December 21st), a Fire Sign,
known as the Centaur or the Archer...
they are very optimistic, freedom-loving, good-humored, independent, honest and straightforward (blunt!), intellectual and philosophical... they can also be blindly optimistic, irresponsible (Oi!) and restless (so true!)
Her signature colors are rich Purples, deep blues and pinks and their stone(s) are Turquoise and Amethyst.

Isn't she a true beauty?!?!
I love the size of this stamp!
I had SO much fun coloring! and really being creative!
I also love that I was able to use these flower-sequins
that I've been holding on to for a loooong time :)
and look at all the sparkle!
I'm saving this one for my Mom's b'day ;)

I saved this tag from the bottle that these Prima flowers came in ;)
I just had to use it!
Even though Sagittarius' flowers are Carnations,
Crocus and berried plants, hee hee!

Another awesome Birthday card for someone special ;)
Our family has a TON of birthdays in December! 
I am going to neeeed to make a whole lot more! ha! 

I hope you likey too!

Oh, and click any of the pics to make it bigger!
I finally realized that I have the right Copics to create a soft blush for cheeks!
I am loooving how this 'natural' look looks :) yay!!!

Hi Margie. OMGoodness. I love your coloring. Your cards are just so wonderful to look at. I am like you, when I got the Taurus in the mail I could not believe the size. I love the size of these stamps. They are perfect. I am feeling my wallet loose weight all ready, I am thinking I will need to buy all of these. After all you could use them as portraits right? Anyway, I just wanted you to know that I love how you have colored your stamps and that they are so beautiful. Have a great day. Hugs, Lisa G

Tress said...
