Good Morning! Are you having fun on the Blog Hop? There are so many beautiful creations. This new set THE NATURAL BEAUTY COLLECTION BY CARMEN MEDLIN FOR SCACD is absolutely gorgeous. They are so detailed and have such beautiful faces. I have the honor of presenting Dances with Dragonflies. She has such a happy and calming look. Of course, I love fantasy and can imagine dancing with dragonflies in the forest. Ummm.

Okay, back to reality. You should have arrived here from the very talented Colleen's blog.

I am sorry the pic is not great. It is sooooo hard to get good pics and try to show all the details, At least for me it is. The image is colored with Copics and, again, I went crazy with the Stickles. There is Stickles on the dragonfly on her arm, hair, anklet, and the vines. The dragonfly is cut out and popped up for a little more dimension. The flowers are a mixture of Prima and my stash.

With every Natural Beauty Collection (7 image) set purchased Susana is giving away for FREE only 1 tooled rose's set from Prima (contains 9 roses-approx 1" each). Susana will pick the color. ONLY good for the 1st week of the release offer - ENDS MAY 29th. ONLY AT SCACD.

UK/European International customers can order from Quixotic Paperie .

I hope you enjoyed my card. You can click on the pic for enlargement and if you have any questions you can always email me.

Now to complete the Blog Hop, please visit the super creative Anki's blog.

I am so excited today is my day to show you a beautiful image GATHERING LOVE by Carmen Medlin for SCACD. Doesn't she have a beautiful face? This collection is The NATURAL BEAUTY COLLECTION. If you missed the first 2 days of Sneak Peeks, please scroll down and visit their blogs.

The DP was so perfect for this image. I did put a little Stickles in the center of the flowers. Since the DP was so busy I really couldn't use any embellishments or it took away from the card. I used a MS punch for the corners and added some pretty little pearls. The image is colored with Copics with glaze on the heart stems, as well, as on the vines on her dress. I suppose I got a little carried away again with the Stickles, but the card is so sparkly and pretty. There is also Stickles on the flowers of her dress and the hearts.

Tomorrow will be Sneak Peek #4 so please check back.

Also, there is BLOG CANDY. Please check the store blog, FOLLOW YOUR HEART, for the details.

Please leave a comment. This is one of the requirements for winning the Blog Candy.

You will have 5 chances to win, but you must leave a comment on the designer's blog who is presenting the sneak peek. So if you haven't left a comment on Elaine's (sneak peek #1) and Lori's (sneak Peek #2) blog, please do so. Only one comment per person on each sneak peek post.

Be sure to check out the Blog Hop on Friday, May 20th as there are 2 stamps not being previewed which will just blow you away. I have a feeling this collection is going to go fast.

Good Morning! I hope all of you ladies had a wonderful Mother's Day. Hubby and I went out to eat Sat. night instead of Sunday. So on Mother's Day we just went to church and then I just crafted and relaxed. This image , Sweet Mischief Peeker, from the Elisabeth Bell Peeker Collection for SCACD. It reminds my of one of my granddaughters who did the same thing as this little girl. She got a stool and tried to get the cake, unfortunately, the stool slipped out from under her and down she went along with the cake. Heartbroken, of course, so we took her to the store and bought her another one.

She is colored with Copics. Even though the picture does not reflect it, I applied Stickles on the edge of her shirt, pants, hair ribbon, and socks. The jar and cherries have Diamond Glaze applied on them for a nice shine. The cute DP is Bo Bunny-Ad Lib which Susana has on sale right now. This particular pad has lots of fun paper to create with. The flowers are from my stash.

The paper used on the inside is from the same paper pad. Notice the green lined paper. It is nice so you can write a personal note.

Thank you for coming by and visiting my blog. Please be sure and check the store blog for more creative ideas. Also, don't forget about the new SCACD Friends with Heart Challenge Blog. We would love to have you join us.

One last thing, Susana has lots and lots of new products in stock. Check it out because she also has a great sale going on.

Good Morning !! My post disappeared last night so I am a little late posting today. Blogger has really given me issues lately. Anyway, I wish I was this little fairy sitting in a hot springs spa - .hmmmm. This adorable image is "SPA TIME FAIRY" . From the Vault by Victoria Case for SCACD.

I seem to get a little carried away when I do a fairy, but they are so much fun. She is colored with Copics and accented with Stickles. Susana has the 2011 colors in stock. The beautiful dp is
from the Sweet Fairy Pad. I love the different papers in the paper pad. The ribbon is from my stash and the rhinestones are Kaisercraft. The flower is also from my stash. I made the bow using my Bow Easy (one of my favorite tools).


OK New Basic grey - Sweet Threads (beautiful) and Lauderdale 6 x 6 papers
New Crafty Individual Stamps
New gorjuss

Thank you for visiting me. I look forward to reading comments and checking our your blogs.
