Friends Forever!

Nok et nydelig digistempel fra Tammy S. Thompson, kunstneren bak 'A day for Daisies'. Jeg har mailet frem og tilbake med henne en stund nå, kjempehyggelig dame! Og om ikke lenge så vil jeg vise frem to stempler hun har designet for meg! Hadde et par barndomsbilder av meg selv, og de har blitt nydelige i digital form :)
♥  ♥ 
Another awesome stamp from A day for Daisies, Dragon Cutie. When I saw this vintage key digi by Prairie Fairie, I just had to have it ~ it looks great under her arm right? I've used a scalpel to the arm and slid the keyparts through, with cushions underneath, so it looks really 3D.
Tammy who's the artist behind ADFD, has created two custom stamps for me, from a couple of childhood photos of myself ~ looking forward to sharing how they turned out on the blog ~ absolutely gorgeous!
