Let the February *new* stamp peeks begin!

Hello Sweeties friends and welcome to Day #1 of the *new* stamp peeks for the month of February!  I am tickled to share these new stamps with you all ... I just know you are going to love them as much as I do!  This month's theme is very near and dear to my heart -- tea and tea parties!  I adore hosting and attending tea parties with my girlfriends ... they are so much fun!  Who doesn't enjoy sitting and sipping tea with the girls while snacking on tea cookies and finger sandwiches??  They always remind me of days gone by when times were simpler and less hectic ... we need more of those days in our lives for sure!

So, without further ado, let's get the peeking started!  {Visit each designer's blog for additional photos of each project).
