Designed2Delight New Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the Designed2Delight monthly release blog hop. Faith has created a bunch of wonderful new springy  images!  We are hopping to show all the new images today. If you arrived from the very talented Peggy's blog you are in the right place.  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 Lil Birdie image. This one is so springy and was fun to color! I went with a more muted color palette for this card and used up some hoarded Cosmo Cricket papers. She's colored with copics and has some stickles for sparkle. Sentiment is from PTI.


For the sketch for this one I used the Deconstructed sketch #43 from Deconstructing Jen.




For my second card I used the Drenched image and sentiment that comes with it. I have a bit of a thing for umbrella stamps and images, I just love them. I went back to my usual bright colors here. This MME paper pack was just perfect with the image. She is colored with copics also.




Now for some fun stuff! All new release images will be 20% for 3 days! Don't you love a sale?! 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 Michelle H.'s and she her fabulous creations!

Ooops, forgot to tell you that "Drenched" is my favorite new release. Maybe it's because we've been so short of rain out here this winter. :-D
