Good Morning !! I have a special treat for you today. Susana and the DT, as well, as the DT from Quixotic Paperie have three new releases to present to you. You have 2 chances to win candy - one chance on the store blog and a second chance on the Facebook page here.

"Reflections Set #2" by Carmen Medlin for ScCACD
"The Spring Sampler by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD
"Celebrate" from the vault by Victoria Case for SCACD

You should have arrived here from the very talented Kim's blog.

I have the honor of presenting "Cupcake and Kittens" from Relections Set #2 by Carmen medlin.

I love the images from the set. I have 4 granddaughters and one loves cats but can't have one because her Dad is allergic to them - so guess what - this card is especially for her. Of course, since she is only 6 she loves pink and sparkle.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Paper Sundaes - Valentine
Creative Inspirations - Valentine/Love
Creative Craft Challenges - Hearts and Flowers
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything Goes
Creative Belli - Jewelry (charm)
Crafts and Me - Red
Craft Creations - My Love is Like a Red Red Rose
Pixie Dust Studio - Use Roses
Frosted Designs - Use Pink, Red, and White only
Stampin For the Weekend - Valentine's Day
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturdays - Use Punches

The image is colored with Copics. Her dress and hair bow are accented with Stickles. All little girls at some point in their life have pink glittery shoes so I had to add a little Stickles to them and also just a little in her hair. When you click on the pic and enlarge you can really see it..

The DP is from my stash and this picture is pretty true to color. The hearts on the paper have gold glitter dots on the hearts. In fact, the pictures were really hard to take because of all the glitter and bright paper. The hearts and border are MS punches and then I added a little rose in the center. The prettly little pink bow was made with my Bow Easy. This little tool has made my life so much easier and is still one of my favorite.

I have more pictures today than normal because I was playing around with some new software and wanted to see what you thought of the various shadows, etc. if you have time let me know what you think.

Before you contine on with the hop just a reminder that Susana has alot of new items in the store and will be receiving more almost every day. Don't miss out !!

Byers for European International orders head to Quixotic Paperie who is an excluse SCACD retailer and will have the stamps available.

Now hop on over to the fabulously creative Marti's blog. Hope you have enjoyed the hop so far and having fun looking at all the new creations.
