Designed2Delight New Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the Designed2Delight monthly release blog hop. Faith has created a bunch of wonderful new springy and Eastery images!  We are hopping to show all the new images today. If you arrived from Michelle's blog you are in the right place. Didn't she outdo herself this month with lots of gorgeous creations?! If you just happened upon my blog you will want to start at the Designed2Delight blog, so you don't miss anything. You can find all the new releases in the store right here.


For my first card I went with the Lazy Easter Bunny image. He's so cute! I've colored him with copics, and added some stickles. Papers are from PTI, SU and some patterns from my scrap bin. My sketch comes from Pal's Paper Arts (PPA129).




For my second card I used the Easter Egg Tulips image (think this is my favorite image from the release!). I love tulips and these are just stunning, really fun to color.  I've colored with copics, uses SU and PTI cardstock and some October Afternoon patterned papers. I've used Tracy's fabulous sketch from Sketchy Thursday#160 at Eat Sleep Stamp.



Now for some fun stuff! All new release images will be 20% for 3 days--sale ending at 7 AM Thursday, Feb. 23. Faith will be giving (2) $5 Gift Vouchers away. Contest will end on Wednesday night at 11:59 pm EST. All you need to do to be eligible for the prize is leave a comment on the D2D blog hop post here. And Faith has generously allowed us to give away an image to, so leave a comment with your fave new release image and you will have a random chance to win it. I'll announce the winner Wednesday morning.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Now hop on over to Pat's blog and she her fabulous creations!
