Hoo Hoo!! I've Got a Secret!!

*** Please scroll down just a smidge for my There She Goes post, thanks!!***

A few month's ago, my dear sweet friend, Jessica Diedrich, asked if I would like to be a guest designer for The Greeting Farm....and of course I said HECK YES!!! I LOVE TGF, and don't get to play with their stamps NEARLY enough, so I JUMPED at the change to play along!! If you are new to my blog, WELCOME!! I am SO HAPPY to see you here!! Well, let's get too it....there is some CUTENESS to be seen!!!

"It has been a while now since The Greeting Farm released an animal set, and we are adding to our super cute collection of forest friends today with "HOO LOVES YOU?!" We think owls have been a real 'hoot' lately around blog land and well, you are going to LOVE Marie's fun and creative take on these cute creatures!

"Hoo Loves YOU?" features three adorable owls in different whimsical patterns and is one of several new releases at TGF this coming month! If you're a newsletter subscriber, you've already seen the amazing previews and we are thrilled to finally be showing you just how very CRAFTY you can get with them!

Our MAY release will go live at 12:01 am CST May 1st in the TGF store and you'll definitely want to come visit us for our DT Blog hop *AND* the reveal of our 2nd annual "Cards for a Cause" drive. There will be lots of fun and PRIZES and you can join us in a heart-warming cause as well. See you THERE!

For my card tonight, I stamped my SUPAH CUTE owl on a X-Press It Blending Card, and then colored him with my FUN!! I layered his with Regal Rose, and Close To Cocoa, and paired that with some YUMMY MME Stella and Rose Hazel paper. My sketch is a Sweet Stop Sketch. I used the MFT Rounded Banner Die-namic, MFT ribbon, a creative Express spiral clip, and some Michael's brads.

Well, that is it for me, for now, be sure to stop by the TGF BLOG and see how YOU can win a "HOO loves you" set! See you back here tomorrow for another he fun resumes tomorrow as we have ANOTHER fun preview to show you and some of our Challenge DT girls will be joining us for this one! Thanks for stopping by!"

Blossom By Blossom Blog Hop Challenge

Hey everyone, and welcome to tonight's Blog Hop Challenge from There She Goes. Tonight is our third, and final night of peeks....and they just keep getting better!!! Tonight's hop started at the There She Goes blog, so you should have come here by way of Jessica's FABULOUS blog...if not, head on over there now!!

Are you ready for another Torico-illustrated character set? I hope so, because we are in love with her latest release that showcases sweet little ladies enjoying the pleasures of spring along with some of their favorite spring creatures and blooms.

Blossom By Blossom is a 4X8 stamp set that includes a total of 22 stamps and will sell for $18.

For my card tonight, I started with this SUPER CUTE image from the Blossom By Blossom set. I stamped her on a X-Press It Blending card, and then colored her with my Copics. I paper pieced her top, as well. My sketch is this week's CPS sketch. I used MFT ribbon, Michael's brads, and a spiral clip from Creative Express. My card stock is Spearmint, and Orange Fizz from MFT. The paper I used is from the MME Stella and Rose Mabel pack.
