And hop, hop, hop!! Nouveau Girls Release and Hop!

*drum roll* ...
And here we are theeee fabulousss...!,
... Nouveau Girls Release Hop!

Ok, probably this new release will change your life forever (mine is surely changed after seen them), so stay calm, breathe slowly e wonder for one of most beautiful stamps line in history. There has been a lot of excitement building up to this event but not only do we have this new line to share with you, we also have some other fun, new things too!

You come here from the fabolous Lou Mac right (your eyes are always shining for her card right?! oh, gosh, I believe you, is the same for me...)? If yes, you're in the right way, baby!, if not... uhmmm, come back at the beginning and start a commenting hop!
So, talking about hop, I say you that
along the way you'll see some fabulous project by our Odd Girls who have just had so much fun (much, muuuuch fun, believe me!) with this new line and have been bursting at the seams to share! We're bringing you 3... oh yes, 3 NEW CLEAR STAMP DESIGNS that we hope will knock your socks off - come on! how could you resist??!? - thand you'll love for all sorts of projects.

This is my tag using "Grow" set... oh, isn't she gorgeous? I had a lot of fun colouring her dress, this drapes is for a patient soul, I know, but look what a superb effect you have at the end!
Searching for a good layout, when I was on work, I thought about Alphonse Mucha and his incredible paints: his girls usually put on gold backgrounds and something could remember an "aura", inspired me and... this is the result! The flowers create a special crown around her... beautiful princess!

Now, I'm sure all of you know what you need to do during a hop!, but I'll refresh your mind, just for be sure, ok?! Ok! you must jump blog by blog like a cute, soft bunny (the order you can see below) and leave a comment on each one... share some love with these girls, they're amazing and deserve the best words and compliments ever for their work and their care! This hop will run from Oct. 31 to Nov. 1 (today and tomorrow in a word); you have thru Nov 1st (midnight EST) to make sure and comment on every stop to be entered to win all three designs from the release! ... a lucky prize, uhm?!

Guest Designer for The Stamping Bazaar

Yuppieeeeee!! After so long time I missed here, here I am with a big news!
I am Guest Designer for
The Stamping Bazaar... can you believe it? Me?? On The Stamping Bazaar??? Uh uuh uuuuh! I couldn't believe when Susuan and Emma from The Two Pink Ladies, co-ordinators for TSB (I have not words for describe their sweetness and kindness, they're two lovely girls... hope you'll have the possibility sooner or later to talk with these two sweeties, and go to visit their blog for see a lot of fantastic creations) sent me a mail where they asked me to be GDT for a day... can you image my eyes?!? O_O I had not a digital camera in that moment, otherwise here you could see a picture of my face eheheh
Halloween has always been one of my favorite Holidays, even if in Italy it doesn't exist and it's not celebrate (I'm very sad about it), but I'm deeply sure that this magical night has the power to come up the child inside us... and it's simply fantastic!! And then, maybe we must talk about candies that jump up from everywhere?!? Candy apples,
chocolate, candies, pie and muffin.... a pain for teeth, but a pleasure for my mouth!
, several times I declared my shameless love for Marvin, the little bat by The Stamping Bazaar, with my friend
Alberto (he has the merit and the guilt for my love for him!)... and this occasion is perfect for use him!! I chose Marvin with Candy Apple, so perfect for an Halloween card! The theme chosen was "anything goes"... can something be more easy?! So I took my best spooky papers and my favourite Copic colour, and I started... and this is the result! My lovely card on The Stamping Bazaar here!

❝ ❞
Yuppieeeeee!! Dopo così tanto tempo che sono mancata, sono tornata con una grande notizia!
Sono Guest Designer per
The Stamping Bazaar... ci credete? Io?? su The stamping Bazaar??? Uh uuh uuuuh! Non potevo credere ai miei occhi quando Susuan ed Emma da The Two Pink Ladies, coordinatrici per TSB (non ho parole per descrivere la loro dolcezza e gentilezza, sono adorabili... spero che avrete prima o poi la possibilità di parlare ed avere a che fare con loro, e andate assolutamente a visitare il loro blog per vedere un sacco di fantastiche creazioni), mi hanno inviato una mail dove mi chiedevano di essere GDT per un giorno... potete immaginare i miei occhi?!? O_O Non avevo una macchina fotografica in quel momento a portata di mano, altrimenti qui avreste potuto vedere un'immagine della mia faccia ehehehe
Halloween è sempre stata una della mie feste preferite, anche se in Italia non esiste e non viene celebrata (non vi dico la mia tristezza per questa cosa), ma sono profondamente sicura che questa magica notte ha il potere di far tornare "a galla" il bambino che c'è in noi... e questo è semplicemente fantastico!!... E poi vogliamo parlare dell'immensità di dolci che saltano fuori ovunque, mele caramellate, cioccolata, caramelle, tortine e muffin... un dolore per i denti, ma un piacere per la bocca!
Ok, diverse volte ho dichiarato il mio amore spudorato per Marvin, il piccolo pipistrello della TSB al mio amico
Alberto (lui ha il merito e la colpa di avermelo fatto conoscere)... e questa occasione è perfetta per usarlo!! Ho scelto Marvin with Candy Apple, davvero fantastico per una card di Halloween! Il tema scelto era "anything goes"... poteva essere più facile?! Quindi ho preso le mie migliori spaventose carte e i miei colori Copic preferiti, ho iniziato... e questo è il risultato! La mia card su The Stamping Bazaar qui!

He's sooooo cuuute! ... and I'm so hungry looking his candy apple, slurp! I used different decorations: flowers, stars punched, buttons, pearls, a skull... all for create the magic caos there is during Halloween night! ... Enough spooky and sweet for you?
❝ ❞
E' così cariiiiiinooo! ... e io sono così affamata guardando la sua mela caramellata, slurp! Ho usato diverse decorazioni: fiori, stelle punchate, bottoni, perle, un teschio... tutto per ricreare quel magico caos che esiste durante la notte di Halloween! ... E' abbastanza spaventevole e dolce per voi?
