You all know how much I LOVE my High Hopes rubber stamps right?
Some times when I see new images, I want to play with them first before investing money in them. Especially stamps that require a lot of coloring (since that used to be hard for me to do...notice the term USED to be! LOL). I searched the gallery at Splitcoaststampers and found some people that had made cards with the images. Then I emailed them and asked if they'd be willing to trade images. Chrissy was awesome about it. She emailed me a big envelope full (which then caused me to go to their site and spend $130!)
Chrissy's artwork blew me away! It turned out that she is not only on the Design Team for the company...but she is also one of the Illustrators (who draw the images for the stamps). And...she's amazingly sweet to boot! So we've traded images a couple times now and we've got to know each other a bit. And, until recently she only displayed her artwork on her gallery at Splitcoaststampers. But I'm happy to announce that she has finally started her own BLOG called Chrissy's Art and Heart. She offered some blog candy and I entered...never in a million years did I think I would win. But I DID! I'm so excited to have new High Hopes rubber stamps to play with! But I'm even MORE excited that Chrissy has started a blog so everyone can see her artwork. Make sure you check it out!
