Birds and the Bees and happy news


     Hello sweet friends!  Today I have some happy news to share with you.  I have been a fan of the adorable Stacey Yacula images from Purple Onion Designs for quite a while.  They're whimsical and sweet and super fun to design with.
     Recently I was contacted by the owner of POD, Michele, and asked if I would like to do some guest designing with her upcoming stamp release. You betcha I did!!!  Then to sweeten the deal she asked if I would like to join the DT.  YES!!!!! (insert fist pump here)  I'm so excited to be designing with these fantastic stamps.
     So today and Monday the DT is going to be introducing you to the new stamps.  Make sure you pop over to the Purple Onion Designs blog because there are going to be several wonderful giveaways both there and on some of the DT blogs for this new release.  And I mean wonderful!---like the entire release wonderful---YOWZA!  The giveaways will run through 12:00 AM EST Sunday and the winners will be announced shortly afterwards.


     So today I have a couple of cards to share with you using the brand new soon to be available release.  My first card uses the sweet little bees from the "Bee Mine" set.


Copics Used:
bees N3, N5, N7, Y11, Y13, Y35
wings B0000, B00, BV31
hearts R35

     Next I have a card made with "Sunny" the bird and the "Confetti" stamp.


     Such a sweet little tweet.


Copics Used:
confetti BG72, YG17, Y11, YR21, YR24
bird B0000, B000, B93, B95, B97, R20, R22, R27, Y11, YR21, YR24
party hat E95, E97, E08, YG17

     I hope you enjoyed the cards and I hope you'll enjoy coming back to see more of my creations for Purple Onion Designs.
