Cherry Blossom Dreams

 Here's a gorgeous stamp from Sweet Pea artist Helena Reis called Cherry Blossom Dreams.  Isn't she stunning? This fun image is available as both a digital image as well as a rubber stamp.  I made this pink monotone theme card using lots of wonderful valentine theme embellishments to go with her.  I am so into making Valentine's cards lately.
 
Here's a great close up of this beautiful stamp. 
Be sure and check out Helena Reis' other stamps that are available at the Sweet Pea store.
 
 
Today, how about telling me which artist at SWEET PEA is your favorite....
I have a bunch of wonderful stamps both digi and rubber to hand out from this wonderful company.  I have been designing for them many years AND I was with this company back when I found out that I would be having brain surgery.  It was quite a shocking revelation at the time.  I really didn't know it was coming.  They were all so wonderful to me!
 
Here's the Sweet Pea site to check out, Tell me which of the artists you like best: CLICK HERE
 
Also, I have put a button in the upper right hand side, it links to the WINNER LIST, you can check this list daily to see who current winners are!!  WOO HOO!

Well, I don't do fairies/fantasy, mermaids,angels,dogs,goth or halloween but I love kids. So my favorite is: Conie Fong. I especially like the mother and baby boy (girl too but I have boys) and the ones of the little kids! Especially the kissing ones! Sooooo cute!

Great Valentine card you did. Love all the embellishments you added to the image. I checked out all the artists and I like Concedtta Kimer's Art Collection, especially the ones with the owls. I don't do fairy or kids images and don't like images with kids big eyes. I would like either the owls, birthday or Halloween images. All great designs from Sweet Pea, but those are my favorites.

Love the card Holly. Choosing a favorite artist from the website took me a couple days, lol. I finally narrowed it down to two favorite artists and I just can't choose between them. I love both of their mermaid images and have made myself a list, Elaine Cox and Joanne Schempp.
