Wednesday challenge and a new preview

This week (month and next month to) are proving to be very busy ones for me. I am excited to show you what I can share. Some of it I can't but I am excited about all that to. Fun things are coming to our future! Smile. Here is the new Chasing Butterflies set that will be released at All That Scraps on Monday. Diem Pascarella is designing some stamps for Christine now. If the name sounds familiar it is because she designs the adorable Beautiful Day Fairies for Paper Makeup Stamps. This set she created is just too cute. I had a blast playing with it and also with my new Spellbinders Eyelets Pendant die. This gorgeous die is available now! If you head on over to the ATS blog you can see more peeks and have a chance to win this cute stamp set.

Here is my challenge for today. I challenged the team to use patriotic colors. I didn't limit which patriotic colors so anyone can play and use what is patriotic to them. The 4th of July will always be my favorite. I love the warm feeling I get when I think of all the servicemen and women who have given their all for my freedom. The pride just swells in my heart. I appreciate all of these people and their families for the sacrifice that they have made and make on a daily basis.

Christine came out with a new digital image last week. There is a short hair version and this one. Her name is Kiki! Isn't she the cutest? I had so much fun coloring her. I think I had a big ole grin on my face the whole time I was creating this card.
