Summer Luvin'...had me a blast!

Spread the Word!  Spread the Joy!  Spread the Luv!

Say Hello to Summer with Little Darlings Rubber Stamps!!!

Join us in a fun Blog Hop celebrating our brand new

 Candibean "Summer Luvin" 2014 Collection!!!


 There are 7 adorable new CandiBean images, reminiscent of warm summer days and fun in the sun!

This entire collection will warm your heart and inspire you to remember old memories, as well as create new ones, with friends and family.  We are excited and overjoyed to bring this new collection to you.  And we are thrilled to FINALLY let you all in on a little secret that has been so tough to keep under wraps!!!

Wait for it....WAIT FOR IT........


 Your stamps will arrive neatly packed in a hanging clear bag, with a full color image on the front and the foam backed, contour cut, warm grey stamp in the back.

Each stamp has a black and white printed image on the cling foam.  The closeup shows the deep etched warm grey rubber and the cling foam backing.  Each stamp also comes with its own reusable plastic cover for use when storing your stamp.

And guess what else?????......


And, that's not all... now YOU have a chance to win the
 Entire 'Summer Luvin' Collection!


Get ready to play in our PUZZLE FUN BLOG HOP!  

We have planted four puzzle pieces somewhere on our 
design team blogs listed below.  Each of the puzzle pieces
 features a tiny part of four different images
 from the "Summer Luvin" collection.  

  Here is what you need to do:

             1. Visit each of the Design Team blogs (scroll down).

             2.  On only four of the blogs, a puzzle piece will be planted. 
       3. Your job is to identify which four images match each of the four puzzle pieces!

       4. When you can identify all four images by name, leave a comment BELOW listing the four names of the images.  

If you guess match all puzzle pieces correctly
you could be one of our THREE lucky winners
who will be randomly selected from the 
comments below to win...
The Entire CandiBean"Summer Luvin" Collection

First up is Diane Carubia, the illustrator and creator of CandiBean!!!

   My name is Diane Carubia and I am the illustrator behind Candibean. I live on a small peninsula in the UK called The Wirral which is about 12 miles from Liverpool, I am married with two teenage children.
Many moons ago I gained a Diploma in Graphics and photography at college, I always wanted to study children’s illustration but I was told I was not good enough for that. If only I hadn’t taken their advice!! I then went on to study for a degree in Orthoptics, I now have a part time job taking Retinal photographs.
My love of card making came quite later on and after buying a kit for my daughter, I was hooked!! Around that time I could not find stamps that I wanted so I started illustrating images for myself, this has now grown and being part of the Little Darlings Team is all I ever dreamed of. My images in rubber and being shipped around the world, who could ask for more!  I hope you love colouring the images as much as I love seeing your fabulous creations with them!!   Hugs Di xx

And now continue hopping with our Design Team!

All of the images are fabulous except that Barbara does not have her's up yet and I am assuming that is the last puzzle piece as I only found Blackberry Penny, Koala Bear Hugs and Izzy Kite Time. I will try Barbara later. Being from another country may be why her's is not up yet. Great job on the new set Angie.
