The lovely New Designs from Sweet Pea Stamps

Hello everyone, If you haven't already popped over to sweet Pea stamps to see the new releases this is the new Plate #30, these designs are so pretty & theres one with Easter Rabbits in there too. And then theres the Gum Drop Gang new release with her easter eggs in her basket she looks sooooo cute doesn't she & theres bunnies too. I think both of these are going to be a big hit with everyone don't you!
The new releases will be available for Pre-order from the 31st JANUARY.
Sweet Pea Stamps are raising their prices in the next couple of days, I don't like to say it but I will have to do the same I'm afraid as it will be costing me more to purchase them. The price increase will be from the 31st JANUARY for the new Pre-order stamps & from the 1st FEBUARY for all other Sweet Pea stamps.
BUT don't worry I will keep the cost as low as possible & they still will be very good value for money!!!!! You will also get your 10% off the NEW RELEASES if you have registered for the newsletter for a set period.
Trish has made a really sweet card from the Purple Woods Stamp why don't you visit Trish Blog & leave her a comment, she would love to hear what you think of it.
I will show you some more sample cards tomorrow so watch this space.
