Max & Milly....

....are the names for my little girl and boy designs which are soon to be stamps. I was helped with lots os suggestions today from my Do Craft friends which did give me a giggle at times lol. I loved these names as soon as I heard them and I had a couple of other favorites too. I put it to a vote and Max & Milly won hands down!X

Name suggestions.....

The little girl on my doodled cards posted underneath now has a brother and they are going to be made into stamps by Spiral Whisper. I am looking for names for this little duo as I am planning to design more images of the two. The little girl is a quiet girly girl and likes to be pink and pretty where as her brother is a typical little boy and likes to do all the things little boys like doing best . When you see the stamps you will know what I mean lol. Has anybody got any name suggestions?.............
