Hey everyone, and welcome to August's VIP Product Tour!! This month's collection is so ADORABLE!! I am in LOVE with these little cuties!!

Pure Innocence Owl Costume stamp set
Costumed Cuties Sentiments mini (VIP exclusive stamp set - will never be offered for sale or be available again $9 value, FREE)

For my cards tonight, I used both the Pure Innocence Girls being released, Prehistoric Girl, and Owl Costume.

For my first card, I used the SUPER cute Prehistoric Girl. I paired my girl with the MME Gnome Sweet Gnome paper pad. My cardstock colors are Jellybean Green, Wild Cherry, Sno Cone, and Sweet Tooth. I used the Pet Charms Die-namics for my bone, which I think is SO fun with this set! My sentiment was cut out with the First Place Award Die-namics, and I used the Oval Stax Die-namics, and Oval Open Scalloped Doily Die-namics for my image. The embellishments I used are Sno Cone Grosgrain, and Maraschino Twine, along with Michael's brads and a Creative Express spiral clip.

For the inside, I used more of the same supplies.

My second card was made with the Owl Costume. I went with a Halloween theme on this one!! I used the Echo Park Happy Halloween paper pad paired with Black Licorice, Sweet Tooth, Jellybean Green, Grape Jelly, and Orange Fizz cardstock. My image was cut out with the Circle Stax Die-namics, and layered with the Open Scalloped Doily Die-namics. I used the Simply Scalloped Medium Die-namics for my scallops, and the Sentiment Strips Die-namics for my sentiment. My ribbon is Black Licorice Grosgrain, Charcoal Twine, and I used the new MFT button in Orange Fizz, Black Licorice, and Grape Jelly.

For the inside, I used the same supplies.

 Here are the Die-namics I have used: 

Well, that is it for me for now!! Be sure to check out Kim's Blog for a full list of designers participating in today's post!!

Donkey University Blog Hop Challenge

Well, here we are at day one of this month's new release Blog Hop Challenges! We are SUPER excited about this month's sets, and we hope you are, too!! Ready to get started? 

Our favorite new animal at There She Goes is the Donkey, and this month Melyssa has found great new ways for us to dress up our Donkey however we see fit. With his super cute tee shirt, and several sayings, you can send Donkey to the University, or just let everyone know what a STUD he is!! We hope you love this set as much as WE do, because believe me, we are in LOVE!!

Donkey University is a 4x4 set that includes a total of 13 stamps and will sell for $10.00.

For my card today, I used this week's There She Goes challenge for my sketch. I stamped my Donkey on X-press It Blending Card, and then colored him with my Copics. He was then cut out, and popped up on a Sweet Tooth panel, with a Black Licorice layer. My paper is from the Darling Dear pad from MME. I used Michael's brads, and the Simply Scalloped Small Die-namics. The ribbon I have used is Black Twill Ribbon from the Ribbon Carousel.  My cardstock is Wild Cherry and Black Licorice from MFT, and my yellow is Banana Split from Bazzill.
