  86. Hi and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
    I am a little sad, I missed the Sale of the Christmas-stamps, now the once I wanted are gone already. But hopefully they will be back in stock befor next christmas ;-).
    Anyway... the new stamps are really cute ones. I love the "Kitty love" the most. Since I just love cats and it´s so sweet, how she is holding the Kitty so nicely tight to her body.

  94. Happy New Year everyone! o<|:P

    What a great way to start the new year - with fabulous new stamps! (Thanks Elisabeth and Summer!!) They are all sweet (as usual!), but I have to say that Beary Big Hugs is my ABSOLUTE favourite. She looks like my sweet little baby niece hugging her favourite stuffed animal with all her might; there's something so innocent and heart-warming about a little one and their teddy bear, isn't there? :)

    Can't wait to get to work with the last collection I bought just before Christmas here - and I LOVE the packaging! It's so easy to organize and keep track of your awesome stamps! I wish all companies took the extra time and effort, doing the extra distance like you do!! Thanks so much - and all the best for 2010!!
