Victoria, My Strawberry Queen

The day is finally here when everyone can take advantage of picking up these adorable Anki's Sweethearts 2 for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD)! I just know you're going to love stamping and coloring these sweeties as much as our Design Team has these last couple of days. And don't forget this great collection of Susanaments! They're just perfect for every occasion and match these stamps so beautifully. They're available now so make sure you stop over at Susana's and pick them up! And Anki, thanks so much for all the fun I've had so far with these babies! I adore them!

I'd love to introduce you to Victoria, my Strawberry Queen! Isn't she just the cutest little thing? I think every little girl at one time or another dreams of being a queen of something. When I saw this sweet face, I just knew how I wanted to do her. I wanted her to stand out on her own and not be too fussy. I remembered this stack I had in my stash called Grandma's Garden (I think. The top came off so I got it at a discount a couple of months ago!), I knew it would be perfect for her. I colored her with distressed inks and added some Smooch and stickles to accent her dress and her staff and her crown. I used a couple of cuttlebug folders to give her some dimension and I had to use some Kaisercraft Pearls. You can't be a princess without jewels and pearls! And I love this Susanament. I think it's a perfect reminder to us all to chase our dreams. If you never go after them, you have no idea what you're missing!

I hope you stop by my fellow Design Team members and see their beautiful creations with these adorable stamps. But first, run over to Susana's store and pick up your set of Anki's Sweethearts 2 Collection! There's so much to chose from and what fun they are! So go pick yours up and show me what you come up with! I love to visit blogs and see how you're inspired. So dazzle me!
