  9. The "dare to dream" sculpture is my favorite. I love that books are the launching pad for this sweet little girl's flight into the future. And, since I do not have a Facebook account, I will say that I also "dare to dream" that I might still have a chance to win all of your awesome stamp images :) Thanks for the chance!

  19. wow there are so many favorites - but i really love that chick with the bunny ears and Easter basket you posted a few months ago - the chick has such a wonderful expression - so joyful? adorable! just makes me happy looking at it (a close runner up would be the one that says Happy Spring with the two bunnies and the fabulous background with butterflies - you posted not long ago - i just love the way that background kind of sparkles for me) So looking forward to Monday to see all the stamps in your new collection.

    ReplyDelete
  22. OMG, Stacey, that's an amazing giveaway! I think I've bought out POD for most of your other stamps. Love them all! Okay, so asking me to choose a favorite illustration is like asking a mother to choose her favorite child, but...I love Freckles so much that I'm going to have to go with your piece, "Stuck on You." "Love Grows" is a close second.

    ReplyDelete
  23. What an awesome giveaway! How could I resist to play along, I LOVE your stamps and illustrations. It's so difficult to pick a favorite because I basically like all of your work. But if I have to I'd pick the snowmen, they're just too cute.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I shared your post on Facebook -- which is easy to do because I love your work!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I was taken with the paper clay pumpkin sculpture (Etsy shop)--so much personality!, although I love the little birds (Sunny, Silver). Your animal images are cute but not saccharine and I find them all tremendously appealing.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hi Stacey,
    Your sweet sculpture of Nestling No. 9 captured my heart, but I love all of your work. Your critters and creatures just speak volumes. Thank you for sharing.

  55. They're all so gorgeous. Your designs always amaze me and I have bought so many of them. But a few more might be needed from this gorgeous collection! I think my favourite (sooo hard to choose) but it is probably the Penguin, Merry, sitting on his presents. I have a huge soft spot for penguins, and he's just adorable with his little candy cane. Can't wait for Monday! Yay, so excited there's a new release. Thank you so much for creating these and sharing your creative talent in stamp form. Hugs. Annette. :0)

    ReplyDelete
  66. Hi Stacey, I just looked at your illustrations and I really love 'Sweet Gathering' as those three cute birds with their hats and scarves and the sweet look on their faces really appeals to me. I love the detail you get into everything and the texture of the fur and feathers. Your new images are beautiful too and I particularly love the bees with the pretty heart shaped wings and the snowman with his cute carrot nose, but they are all lovely. x

    ReplyDelete
  67. I LOVE the Jolly Snowman, he's so ADORABLE! But, I also like the bunny. They're all so sweet! You are simply amazing! I wish I could color/draw, even a fraction, as well as you do. Thanks SO much for the new stamp set!

  70. Dear Stacey, your new collection is simply stunning! I've found your illustrations about a year ago and ever since fell for your little critters completely! This new collection is a continuation of pure brilliancy and I really mean it; I haven't seen such touching stamps anywhere before! My absolute favourite is that penguin sitting on the parcel - I think he is just the cutest! I am sure your new release will bring tons of happiness to many crafters & card receivers equally :-)! Yours, Steph
    P.S: I've just posted 2 new projects on my blog using one of your previous stamps, I just love them so much! Have a look over at my blog if you're interested:

  71. Thanks so much for your sweet new collection, those sentiments of yours just suit me down to the ground, simple sweet and succinct! There are many occasions where they will be a great addition to my cards.
    I love the little trio of birds in "Sweet Gathering"...I have 3 young grandsons and this reminds me of them and I would love it for my daughter in law.
    The most poignant heart tug came however when I looked through your sculpture photographs and saw Jack and Peeps...my dad used to make me newspaper hats when I was tiny, a million years ago and I had almost forgotten about it, now I have that sweet memory back, so thanks, I may not have looked through that tab if it weren't for your competion.

  72. Your new collections is amazing! Love all the images, I think Bubbly Bear is my favorite, but I change my mind every time I take another look! Thanks for sharing your amazing talent with us!
