Paging Dr. Hanna - Stat!! **HANNA SNEAK PEEKS**

TGIF!!!! YAY!! It's Friday - and for us - it means the first day of our Spring Break!! My kiddos are still getting over the illness from this week - so it was definitely nice to be able to let them sleep in this morning. We're looking forward to the next week off - we are having a "stay-cation" here at home - so I'll still be around here stamping next week too. So today starts the sneak peeks of the April Hanna Stamps releases and you are gonna LOVE them!! I'm gonna kick off my sneak peeks with a couple of cards I made with the new Hospital set being released this coming Monday. Consider this my tribute to "ER" ;) - how weird is it when a show that's been around for 15 years finally signs off, huh? I have to admit - I haven't watched it for years - but boy - do you remember those first few seasons?? WOW - what an amazing show and our first introduction to George Clooney to boot - hee hee...OK - I've gotten way off track here - onto my cards....the first one I have is a scene card I made with the Hospital set - yes - there is both a Dr. Anthony AND a Nurse Hanna in the set - plus a TON of awesome hospital related images. I started by stamping my Dr. and Nurse first - masked my Dr.'s hand and then stamped the x-ray behind him. I then masked my nurse and stamped the IV thing-y behind her. I drew in the floor and the x-ray board around my images with a Copic mulitiliner pen and a ruler - then colored the entire image with Copics. The pill image is from this set as well - I stamped a border on both sides of my card - then colored and cut a few out - popped them up with foam tape on the border to create some interest. The sentiment is from the Hanna Stamps "Everyday Sentiments" set. And then just to show you how versatile this set can be - I have another fun card with this set...
I made this card for today's Hanna Stamps challenge over on the SCS forums -today's challenge is to make a card that is black and white and red all over!! This was such a fun card to make - everything - included the background was stamped - I stamped images from the Hospital set onto my white background and then colored them in red - I did use a white gel pen to highlight the images to make them pop. I stamped the thermometer from the set - colored it and cut it out. I used my Accent Essentials Cricut cartridge to cut out the spark shape behind it - it was cut at 2 1/2 in. with a shadow. I adhered the spark with foam tape to make it pop a bit more. The sentiment stamped along the bottom strip is from the Our Craft Lounge "Running Sick" set.

Be sure to swing by the other DT members blog for more fabulous peeks and visit our April Guest Designer's blog as well - the talented Michelle!! We will be having a release party over on SCS this coming Monday - April 6th - from 9-11 PM EST - the new sets will be released at the end of the party including 3 full sized Hanna sets and 2 awesome new Rileys!! Hope to see you there!!! Thanks so much for stopping by!
