Sneak Peeks!

Hi everyone and happy Friday! Thank you for the birthday wishes yesterday. I had a wonderful birthday and received so many wonderful gifts and cards!

I have TWO cards to share with you today and they both have sneak peeks of images being released this weekend at Squigglefly. The first one combines the cute little Boogie Board girl from Jackie Mathews along with a flip flops image that is part of a set of ELEVEN images from Bonita Jones called Surf Watch that will be released this weekend.

I colored the images with Copic marker and chalked the sky and sand. The sketch is from Saturday's sketch challenge on Papercraft Planet. I printed the flip flops out in a border and then cut a scalloped edge around them to create the whole border.

The next card was so much fun to do. It uses a darling cow from artist Jackie Mathews that will be part of this weekend's release. The image is called Hello There and I love the incredulous look on the cow's face!

I colored the cow with Copic markers and chalked a little yellow around her. The words are computer generated. I know you wanna know what the inside says

LOL! I don't know about you, but I have Deja Moo all the time! Now, aren't you itching for these images to hit the store? Keep checking the design team's blogs for more sneak peeks!

Now I'm going to share something really special with you, and it's a sneak peek of sorts. This is the birthday card my sister Lynne Stansbery made for me. She did save the image before she colored it, so while it isn't part of this week's release it will be in the store soon!

Isn't it just the cutest thing? I love it!

I hope you have a terrific Friday, and thanks for looking!

Well old age hasn't slowed you down any...teehee...just couldn't resist! I just love it when my friends keep getting older and older! :)

These are ADORABLE! The scallops really bring attention to that fabulous border! The Boogie Board Girl is precious too...can't wait to see the rest of the set!
The look on that cow is priceless...oh the sentiments you could add to that one! I love what you did here. Very clever, GF! Glad to know your mind isn't going just yet!

Doesn't it make you feel special when Lynne draws an original just for you? This is the sweetest one I've ever seen! What a talented and creative gal she is...she's your YOUNGER sister, right??? Ok...I'll stop!

Stay cool!

Oh my goodness these are wonderful. I love the Deja Moo too funny.
I have a question was the border scalloped edge a punch or hand cut? If you hand cut that you did a fantastic job. I wish I cold cut that good.
Thanks for sharing all your wonderful cards.
