Hanna Stamps is hosting a release party over on the Hanna forum at SCS tomorrow night from 9-11 PM EST - I hope you'll stop by - it's always a blast - fun chatting, prizes, challenges. etc. And thanks for stopping by my blog today!!
So anywho - I do have a card to share with you today - it's for today's Featured Stamper challenge over on SCS - today's challenge features the SCS sketch queen herself - Rox - YAY!! I chose this card to case - I fell in love with it on the spot and knew exactly how I wanted to CASE it. I wanted to keep the insect theme of the card - so I pulled out the ant image and the food images from the new Who's That Girl? "Let's Picnic" set (being released this Wednesday, June 3rd) - I stamped the food images on top of the ants like they were carrying the food off and the sentiment from this new set provides a good warning for all of our summer picnics - LOL!! I kept the overall layout of Rox's card - although I did add an extra black layer to make my main panel a bit wider. I also kept the punched flowers on the card - I just changed the placement of them on my card.
Thanks so much for stopping by - don't forget to pop over and check out the June One Click challenge contest - Joanne and Christina posted it yesterday - pull out some chipboard from your stash and play along to win all of the June releases!!!

One more sneak for you today - this image as well as the sentiment is from the new set called "Five Little Dresses" and let me tell ya - you fashion lovers are going to go bonkers over this set!!! I love this mod girl's little swinging dress - and of course - what mod girl is complete without her white go-go boots??? Hee hee...this card is for today's Hanna Stamps challenge as well - which is a sketch challenge hosted by Frances - you can play along at the challenge here. I love this paper with this image - although I can't for the life of me tell you where it came from - I found it at the bottom of my dp stash - which means it's been there for a looooooooooong time - LOL!! Besides my Copics - the only other accessory I used on this card was the CB "Spots and Dots" folder to emboss the circle on the corner of my card.
And now for some news...this will be my last release with Hanna Stamps :( as I am stepping down from the team at the end of this month. I can't even begin to tell you what a difficult decision it was - Hanna Stamps will always be my first stamping love and I have made so many amazing friends on the team. There is no big drama involved in the decision though - I really just needed to free up some more of my time here at home - especially for my kiddos. I've been with Hanna Stamps for a little over a year now and it's just been an absolutely wonderful experience!! So I would like to take this opportunity to thank the sweet and extremely generous Kristi Ferro, our fearless (and amazing) DT leader Vicki Garrett and all the other wonderful ladies that I've had the honor to work with on the Hanna team - I will miss you all!!!
To end on a happy note - Hanna Stamps will be hosting another fabulous release party on Monday June 1st from 9-11 PM over on the Hanna forum on SCS - there'll be lots of fun challenges, prizes, and chatting as well as the release of the 2 new sets and 2 new Rileys - hope you'll stop by!!!

Dear Mrs. Henderson,
I can’t believe it’s the end of another school year already! I remember how nervous Andrew was about starting first grade – he thought he was going to have (MOUNDS) of homework and was nervous that his new teacher might think he was an (AIRHEAD). When he found out he had you for a teacher – he thought his eyes were playing (TWIX) on him – he was very excited to be getting a fabulous teacher like you!! And it turns out you were a (LIFESAVER) as Andrew has turned into quite the Honor (ROLO) student! I had (STARBURST) in my eyes while reading his progress reports!
So, as our thanks to you, we are going to go to Mr. Land and ask him to give you a big bonus of (100 GRAND) for being such a great teacher! Have an (EXTRA) fun summer and here are a few (HUGS & KISSES) for you to enjoy (NOW AND LATER)!
Andrew and Candice Lighty
So all of the candy that is in bold in the message I put in the card is included in the jar - how fun, huh?? We had such a fun time picking out all the candy we could include in the note! Here's a close-up of the jar - notice how I put a strip of DP inside the jar - it's a 2 inch wide strip of the new Stephanie Fizer School digi papers that are being released with the label sets as well - I just LOVE how everything works together!! The new digi papers are AWESOME!!! The chalk board is from the new school label set - I stamped my chalkboard on black paper and then embossed it with silver EP - my sentiment on the chalkboard was stamped and embossed with white EP. The books and the ruler images are from the set as well - I colored them with Copics and then cut them out and adhered them to the chalkboard label.
This was such a fun gift to put together and very thrift-y gift-y as well!! We went thru a lot of the candy we had at home to find candy that would work in our message - and with a pak of the jars, paper and label sets being released by MFT - think of all the teacher gifts you could put together quickly as we are fast approaching the end of the year!! I hope you've enjoyed this stop on the hop - you're next stop is the very talented Natalie - I know she has something amazing to share with you!! Enjoy!!
Don't forget to vote for your favorite MFT Idol HERE!!!!

So are you all psyched for the Hanna Stamps release tonight?? I hope you'll pop in the Release Party tonight over on the Hanna forum on SCS - the party will be from 9-11 PM EST and Kristi will release the new sets and Riley towards the end of the party. There are some fun challenges planned and Kristi and Vicki always have fun giveaways during the party as well!! I've got another card to share with you using "Fins Riley" - I made him a total beach bum!! I created this little beach scene using images from the previously released Hanna Stamps "Fun in the Sun" set. The entire image was colored in with Copics. The paper is from an old DCWV Summer Stack. I did the sentiment using Doodlebug rub-on letters and accented it with a white star brad. I hope you've enjoyed my sneak peeks of the new Hanna and Riley images coming out and don't forget to stop by the party tonight!! Thanks for stopping by!
