Summer Fun **Hanna Sneak Peeks - Day 1**

Happy Friday!! And boy - it's a good thing it's Friday - it's been on of THOSE mornings...you know the ones I'm talkin' about...it's raining...you don't want to get out of bed...you finally get in the shower only to find that you've washed your hair twice because you didn't remember you washed it the first time...your first grader is hiding because he'd rather play Pokemon than get on the bus....hee hee...oh well - I did manage to get my DS on the bus and on the bright side - I do have really clean hair this morning - LMBO!!! So anywho - I am a little later getting my first Hanna peeks posted than I wanted - but here they are...the releases this month are AWESOME - definitely gonna make you long for that summer weather though!! This first one I have is another one of those plastic maze cards (like my Tooth Fairy card I posted a couple of days ago) - I decided to try one out with one of the new Rileys - this is "Fins" or "Flipper Riley" (not entirely sure what Kristi has decided to name him) - it doesn't make a difference what you call him - he's flippin' cute!! (Pun intended - hee hee...) I stamped my Riley on a circle cut to fit the inside of my maze - masked him - then used my new air compressor to airbrush the sand and the sky background - I then colored him in with Copics. Once he was colored - I reassembled him back into the maze for my card. The waves were cut using my Cricut (1 in. from the Zooballoo cart) and I stickled the white caps on them. The paper is from an old DCWV Summer Stack and the sentiment is from a Studio G clear $1 stamp set. I've got one more Summer Fun project to share with you today...

This is a summer reading bookmark I made for today's Hanna Stamps challenge over on SCS - you can view the challenge here. It's also a sneak peek at the new "Pool Party" set. Today's challenge is to make something flat that is not a card - today is the start of the BOGO book fair at my DS's school to stock up on summer reading material - so I was inspired to make him a bookmark for his summer books (he REALLY loves to read). I used the bookmark style from one a past TLC challenge on SCS - but cannot find the link for the bookmark to save my life this morning ( have I mentioned it's been one of THOSE mornings?). I know I started with a 3 1/8 in square for it - I punched my bottom border first with my Martha Stewart Zig Zag edge punch - stamped my images on it - masked them - then airbrused the pool water on and colored my iamges in with Copics. I added the sentiment with Doodlebug Rub-on letters and some ribbon for the top.

So when are these gonna be released??? The new sets will be available on Monday night - May 4th - after the release party over on SCS. The Hanna Stamps May release party is from 9-11 PM and it's always a blast!! There are lots of fun challenges, chatting, prizes, etc. in store - so be sure to swing by!! And be sure to pop in my fellow DT blogs for more awesome sneak peeks - as well as our 2 May guest designers - Nikki Fairburn and Pam Varnell! Have a wonderful Friday - thanks so much for stopping by!!
