Are You Ready to Meet Little Frieda?

I think it's high time I introduce Little Frieda to you, don't you? ;)

As I mentioned in my very first post, I've named the little girl in this series of stamps after my mom, Frieda Clark Allen. When I was pregnant with my first child, Mom asked me what I'd name the baby if it was a girl. I said I thought we'd go with Katelyn. She said, "how about Little Frieda?" Well, I had a boy... and then three more... so no Little Friedas... until now!

The first three in this series of stamps will be released on Monday. Two of them are single images with three greetings, which you'll soon see. But today I'm showing you one that's a little different...a scene. Do you remember loving to color when you were a kid? And do you still love to color? Well, then this little stamp is for you! Introducing Little Frieda and Lulu - Mischief!

Little Frieda is being naughty and letting her birdie out of his cage while her cat Lulu sleeps. The actual stamp is taller... showing more curtain...but easily cuts down to size. I went with a square to fit this week's sketch challenge at Sketch Saturday. And I really did have fun coloring this cute scene. I hope you will, too!!!

I'll be back again soon with more previews of Little Frieda! Have a great day!!!
