Have you ever......?

Seen a stamp that you *knew* in an instant you not just wanted it you NEEDED it!  I'm sure most of us have been there probably with every stamp we buy lol!  Well this stamp I saw and I just had to have it!  Teresa hadn't got it in yet but it came in last week and bless her she remembered my yearning (or my pleading and pretty pleases with sugar on the tops!) and popped it in the post for me lol!

This one is by Kraftin' Kimmie and is called, go on I think you can guess!  Yes its Cinderella!  Look at that dress Oooooooh!  I was so excited when I saw this as I just couldnt decide what to colour her in first so I had a rummage through my papers instead and settled on blue!  I know I'm a big kid and its like one of those dress up dollies where you can change her hair and clothes hehe!  I think she would be fantastic for New Years cards too but this one is a wintery any occasion card :)
Its quite appropriate at the moment as my DD (Age 2) has just taken a shine to Cinderella, she also wanted to colour her in so I'll post hers below!

Cinderella is coloured with promarkers, I'm always asked about the blues so this one is my fav combo using cool aqua, sky blue, azure and french navy.  Speaking of promarkers did you know that Letraset have a brand spanky new blog?  No?  LETRASET HAVE A BRAND SPANKY NEW BLOG!  There dont say I didnt tell you lol!  You will find their brand spanky new blog HERE!

Anyway, Cindrella is coloured with promarkers and I've used my fav glue pen and glamour dust to add sparkle to her bodice and shoe.  On the dress I used a clear copic spica pen so its all sparkly.  I've had my copic spica pen 12 months and its always been a bit dodgy so I flicked the end then gave it a mad shake and it then decided to work so there are sparkles on the ceiling and floor now lol! 
Papers are a mix of a Daisy & Dandilion set I got locally and the stars one is a printout from Bearly Mine designs which is a freebie here.  Snowflakes are punched from same card I used as matting which you cant see but it is a deep sparkly blue from papercellar.

Thanks for Looking!
