Hip, Hip, Hooray...It's Sweet 'n Sassy Release Day!

Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Release Day!  It's the most exciting day of the month, where we provide you with this month's full reveal and stamps and dies and we have a big 'ol party over on our SCS Forum (starting at 8:00 pm EST) tonight where we'll post a bunch of challenges and prizes will be offered!  And speaking of prizes, one person will win the ENTIRE release!!  Our winner will be announced at the end of our release party so be sure to comment on the DT blogs as you work your way through the hop...you never know, you might win...BIG!

On to the cards!  My first card, shown above, showcases a brand new floral image, Happy Place, and I love it!  This is a wonderful image for coloring and I used my Distress Markers to color this beauty.  My paper is from Authentique and I love the sentiment.  My hubby is definitely my dream come true...but he might not be all in to that big bouquet of flowers! LOL!

Next is another all time fav...a silhouette images.  I think we all know how I feel about silhouette images...I love them as much as floral images!  This sweet image is from the new set, Make a Wish, and it contains one dandelion image and a boatload of sentiments that are perfect for mixing and matching.  For example, I used the "wishing you" image with the "joy" but you can also choose from love, well, or peace.  I paired this image with the Friendship Script, lightly seen in the background, which was colored with Distress Inks.  I also used my brand spanking new chicken wire embossing folder for a little texture.  Ready to check out what the other DT members have come up with?  I know it's going to be beautiful and inspiring!  And don't forget to join the party tonight!!

Kim Schofield - YOU'RE HERE!

Two great cards! Terrific coloring on the Happy Place card. On the second card, you showcased the dandelion so nicely with the embossing and the shading of the pink ink.
