New Release

new release 003
Well the sun eventually came out in Ireland and its been absolutely lovely, unfortunately my youngest son has not been well these past few days so I haven’t been able to take the kids anywhere nice as of yet but we have a surprise party planned for Sunday as its my Mums 60th birthday so fingers crossed the sun will stay with us for a while longer especially as all the family are coming and we won’t all fit in the house lol so I’m planning on using the garden too, oh please let the weather be good. 
I’ve two cards to show you today using some of the new images released today over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps, have to say I love them especially the ‘Hatters’ .  My first card is using an image called  ‘Melba Flora Hatter’  isn’t she sweet, doing the Cha Cha.  I decided to dust the old prisma pencils off for my colouring, I forgot how much I love them and of course this card just needed a feather and hatpin to finish.
new release 007
And this beautiful girl is called ‘Camila’ again I’ve used my prisma pencils and sansador to colour,  the papers are from ‘My minds eye’ and the sentiment is from Lili of the Valley. I’ve also done a bit of experimenting with my Faux stitching , I managed to do criss cross, zig zag and straight, woo hoo lol . Pop over to the challenge blog and check out the fabulous cards the design team have made using the new release,  I will have more to show you tomorrow.
P. S. Don’t forget you have another week to enter the current challenge, the theme is ‘Summer’.

Gorgeous cards Donna! I love the feathers on Melba Flora's card and the stitching on your Camila card is amazing! I didn't realise it was faux until you mentioned it!
