Sunshine & Giggles!!

I am so excited to finally be able to announce that I am starting my own stamp line!!

I knew I wanted a children's line and I know what I am always looking for but not always finding - Boy Stamps and African-American children. Of course how you interpret them is entirely up to you. I think my illustrator, Lorna Burley, did a fantastic job capturing what I envisioned.

Sunshine and Giggles website will be up and running on June 1st (fingers crossed). Who knew how involved it is building a website. My stamps have already gone to print and I can't wait to get that rubber in my hands! I am showing a little sneak peak of 3 of the stamps in the first line. I have already posted a design team challenge on Split Coast Stamper but I realize it's hard to know if you want to be a member without ever having seen the line. So without further adieu:

Don't you just love this future little hall of famer and my little entrepreneur with his lemonade stand. He is my favorite one of all! And yes, we have not left out the girls.

Well there they are- the 1st 3 of a line of 6 for the initial rollout. Please feel free to let me know what you think. I hope it inspires you to enter the design team challenge!! I can't wait to see everyone's entries. I love to spend time blog-hopping, lol.

Good luck to you all!
