Sending Sunshine...

Hey!

Happy Saturday! Happy Summer Holidays (for me!) and Happy Release Day at The Craft's Meow!!!

The Craft's Meow


Yup today you can purchase all the sets we've been previewing with the exception of 'Summertime with Fibi and Lilly' which is free with purchases over $50!!!

We're celebrating with our usual blog hop so if you've come from my buddy, Amy T's blog then you're in the right place. If not, then you'll wanna start here as if you leave a comment on each hop, then you could win the entire release!

So on to my hop project. I decided to combine two very summery sets - 'One Scoop or Two?' and 'Summertime with Fibi and Lilly'

Sunshine

I realised after playing around with 'One Scoop or Two?' that the solid cone image could also act as a ray image! So I die cut a circle, used the negative and stamped the rays as well as dusting shimmer chalk inbetween the stamped rays. I then die cut a small circle and used the negative to sponge ink and create the centre of the sun before stamping the sentiment over the top. I love that I've now got even more use out of that set! :)

Well that's it from me, I'm sure you'll be itching to hop along to your next stop which is another fabulous buddy of mine, Iwona Palamountain!

Thanks so much for stopping by here today!

Catch ya later!
