Final October Sneak Peek

Welcome! - Today we are previewing the last 2 sets for the October release at Annabelle Stamps.  -  As is our custom we are doing a Blog Hop.  This is your chance to win these sets for Free so you won't want to miss out.

The rules are easy.  Hop from the Annabelle Blog through the DT members blog - Leave a comment on each blog.  Head back to the Annabelle blog and answer an easy question.  Winners will be drawn and announced on the 21st on the Annabelle Blog.

First up today we are previewing:  Lil Belle Molly - Isn't she adorable.  I just love this new line of stamps.  If you love coloring or paper piecing these are the stamps for you.
For my card today I also used one of the sets we previewed 2 days ago (Backgrounds by Design-Numbers) along with some DP from WeRMemory Keepers.  I stamped the square background stamp with Crushed Curry ink a couple of time on Whisper White cs and then layered the dp and a punched border of Bermuda Bay cs ad tied on some Old Olive grosgrain ribbon.  Molly was colored with my Prisma Colored Pencils and cut out then mounted with foam dimensional tape.  I added some Olive Sprinkles and the little Get Well Soon sentiment, which is also in the set.  I think this would cheer anyone up as she is just so adorable.  Don't you love those Polka Dot boots/shoes!

The last set we are previewing is one of my favorites, Lil Bee.  Doesn't this just make you smile, I know it does me.
For this card I chose some spring like colors/paper patterns as I wanted this to be a very cheery card.  My bee was colored again with Prisma color Pencils.  The DP is from Basic Grey - Lemonade line.  I embossed the pieced behind the bee image with the Swiss Dot embossing folder.  Again I used Olive Sprinkles (love those things!).
Now if you are following the hop correctly you should have arrived here from
Sue's Blog and from here you will hop on over to Rene's Blog  I'm sure both these ladies and in fact all the DT members will just WOW you with their fantastic cards so get hopping.
