Designed2Delight New Release Blog Hop

This is my second post of today, scroll down one to see my Phindy's Friday challenge card.


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 Pat'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 Meg with Daisies image. This one is so springy and was fun to color! I went with a bright color palette for this card and used up some scraps of BG and October Afternoon pattened papers. She's colored with copics and has some stickles for sparkle. 




For the sketch for this one I used the Cardabilities sketch #53. I flipped it on end to accomodate the image I was using.




For my second card I used the Garden Fence image and a sentiment from SU. Love this image, so quaint and summery. Wish I had a green thumb to grow flowers like this! This Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety paper pack was just perfect with the image. It is colored with copics also and again stickled for a bit of sparkle.


I've used Sketch Saturday #203 for the layout of this one.


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 Monday morning.

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

Love both your cards Kathy, you have captured spring so well with both of the images, but my favourite is Meg with Daisies as the flourish, flowers, and butterfly really give s the card that spring feel.
