SUINK's Easter Eggs and a Little Hoppy!

Happy Thursday everyone!!!

Izzy is still sick! Poor, poor baby. She was feeling better though yesterday and we were actually able to play outside for about an hour. Mostly she wandered around the back yard, following Tuxy. She did fill up a pot with pebbles and dump it out a couple of times, so I am really hoping that this is a passing thing and nothing that is going to keep her down. I have to say though that it is nice to have a cuddly little girl. She is just so loving and sweet! I guess I love it because I know that it won't last forever! Hopefully I will be back with more pictures of Izzy tomorrow. It is a little hard to take them when she is attached to your chest! LOL!


Now, I won't keep you in suspense any longer. That would be cruel! It is finally my time to sneak peek the new Storage Units, Ink and More March sets!!!! They are just so adorable. Two sets will be released this month; an Easter set called Some Bunny Loves You and a play set called Let's Play. And I know I might get in trouble for this, so please don't tell, but I just couldn't resist sneak peeking both!!! They are both so cute and so sweet! I just couldn't resist!

So my first card for you today is a card I created using the new Let's Play set that will be released Sunday March 1st. This set contains several adorable little scenes of kids on a playground. Honestly a perfect set for party invitations, note cards for kids or well just about anything to do with spring and summer. So here is a creation I made for my niece who is trying very hard to get green week's as school. I have to say I am really proud of her. She has had 3 weeks in a row!


See, what I mean!!! Too, too cute!!! I love that the little girl drew a hopscotch court with chalk. That was one of my favorite activities when I was a kid! Anywhoo, I started this card by stamping the little girl playing hopscotch from Let's Play by Storage Units, Ink and More on white card stock and colored her in using my copics. I then cut her out and mounted her on yellow, green and red/orange Core'dinations card stock. I decided to create a long card for this so I could show off my square card stock by DCWV. I layered it on green, blue and red/orange Core'dinations card stock and added three green polka dot ribbons. To finish the card off, I popped off my main image at an angle, stamped my sentiment also from Let's Play, cut it out along with a piece of green and blue Core'dinations card stock using my nesties and then placed it on the side of my image. I really think my niece will get a kick out of it and I hope it keeps her encouraged to do well!

So, my second card I am sneaking in. I just couldn't help but make a card with it, the set is just too, too cute!!! As soon as I opened my package this month, I instantly wanted to ink up those adorable little chicks! They are so, so sweet! Anywhoo, here is my sneak peek for the new set Some Bunny Loves You.


Aren't those chicks sweet!! Almost makes me want one of my own! Almost! LOL! I started this card by stamping the girl and chicks from Some Bunny Loves You by SUInk and More on white card stock and colored them in using my copics. For her dress, I stamped my girl image on a piece of Basic Grey DP, cut it out and paper pieced it on top of my girl. I really wanted my card to resemble an Easter egg so I decided to cut out teal and yellow Core'dination card stock ovals using my nesties. For the sentiment, I stamped the sentiment on white card stock, sponged certainly celery around the edges and then mounted it on teal card stock I cut out with my nesties. To complete the card, I decided to thread through a yellow ribbon and make a loop so the recipient could hang it on their Easter tree when they received it!

Now, it is time to check out the rest of the DT's awesome creations! I was so blown away yesterday and today! I can't believe all the talent that is contained in one place!

Well that is it for me today! Jason is going out with the boys tonight since he can't play tennis. That allows Izzy and I to have a girls' night! Fortunately, "Aunt" Tracy is also coming over so it is going to be extra fun! Have a great rest of the day and thanks as always for stopping by! Smiles!

Oh Janna, these are GREAT!!! Your coloring is amazing and I just LOVE the scene you created on the Easter card. I can't wait to see what else you do with the new sets.

Hey Janna! I'm so glad to hear Izzy is feeling better. It's hard when our kids are sick. Makes us feel bad. I'm feeling better but still stuffy headed.

Oh I loved hop-scotch when I was a kid. I could entertain myself by playing hop-scotch even by myself. Your card is so darn cute. Love the fact that you drew the hop scotch. .. you are definitely talented with your drawings!

Your second card with the duckies. . okay, can I say. . .SUPER CUTE! LOL! Love the paper piecing and as always fabulous coloring!!

Hope you have a fabulous day!!
