Enchanted Lily is here!!!!

Happy Monday everyone!!!

Well, we made it back from Kansas City in one piece and had a great time doing it! We had a nice little lunch with Jason's parents and his brother's family before we left. The best part was we got to eat some left over birthday cake and then made the four hour trip home in sunny but cool weather. Since we got home a little late, we decided to go out to dinner and then made a pit stop at Target to pick up a birthday gift. It was a nice ending to a family themed weekend.

Today is going to be another busy day for us. I am watching Melaina again in the morning and then her mother Dawn, the girls and I are all going out for lunch. I am still waiting to see if Lucy and her mom will be able to make it but I really hope they can. It is just so fun seeing all the girls together playing and laughing. I also think it helps them with socializing since they don't get to spend a lot of time with other children.

Enough jabbering! I know what all of you are here for!!! The Pink Cat release of the new Enchanted Lily set!!! I can't believe the day is already here! This month has just flown by! Well here it is, a picture of the four amazing images and the sentiments that accompany them.

Aren't they absolute perfection! My nieces saw them when I was teaching my sister how to color and just couldn't get enough of them. They kept asking me to stamp them up more and more! It was so sweet! So in honor of this release I created one more card using the last stamp included in the set, the Leaping Lily stamp. She was actually the adorable image that sparked the whole Enchanted Lily set!

For this card, I really wanted to create a feel of Lily flying through the air so I created a window card! I just love how she has her wings spread behind her and her hair flowing in the wind! I started this card by stamping Leaping Lily from the new Enchanted Lily set by Pink Cat Studio on white card stock and colored her in using my copics and glitter pen. I then cut her out and set her to the side. To create my window card, I cut two pieces of brown card stock, one a half inch longer than the other and scored the top most piece a quarter of an inch in from both sides and then a half inch in from both sides so that it would pop up from the back. I then cut out a hole in the middle using my nesties, mounted a piece of acetate behind it, placed some Basic Grey DP on top of my back panel and glued them all together. Next I placed a piece of pink card stock and a piece of Cloud 9 DP on top, both of which I cut out circles using my nesties. Finally, I placed prima flowers in the two corners and used brown brads and dimensionals to attached them. I stamped my sentiment on white card stock, mounted it on pink and attached it to the bottom with some more flowers. To finish the card, I simply placed my leaping Lily in the middle to make her look like she is floating in the trees! A perfect little thank you card!

Now it is time once again to check out my fellow DT member's amazing creations!! I have been blown away so far by what they have created! They are one talented group of women!
