Hanna Sneak Peeks and Some News...

Happy Friday!! Is everyone ready for another round of Hanna Stamps releases?? I can't believe how fast the months fly by!! I've got a couple of sneaks for you today - this first one is from the new "Stamposaurus" set - and OMG - is it an awesome set! (Think "Night at the Museum" meets "Jurassic Park") I used the pterodactyl (sp?) images in the set to make this adorable little dino-scene for my card - I did do a bit of masking and added the clouds from the Hanna Stamps "Route 66" set (this month's featured Retro Set). The image was colored in with Copics and cut out with circle nesties. The patterned paper is from an old DCWV Fall stack I have in my stash and the green cardstock was embossed with the Cuttlebug "Bubbles" folder - although I think it looks more like the texture of reptile skin. ;) I added a couple pieces of ribbon onto a little bone clip to accent my card.

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!!!
