CREEPIN' up to Release Time...

Hey everyone!

I am EXTRA excited about my post today because my beautiful 11 year old daughter is showing off a card today on my blog as well ;)  Gotta LOVE summer.  Relaxed schedule...fun classes...stampy time w/ the kidlets...and today Madelynn is QUITE proud of what she has to show you, as I am :)

Today is also Thursday, and time for the DECONSTRUCTED SKETCH with my friend Jen Shults!  Be sure to stop by the rest of the DECONSTRUCTED SKETCH GIRL's blogs...these ladies ROCK week after week! Links on my sidebar :)  Here is DS 8:

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this sketch, and Madelynn did too!   Here is my card, using the new CREEPER PIPER which we are previewing at The Greeting Farm today:

I used the new "Out of Print" 6x6 pad by Basic Grey- adore it!  Such fun, eclectic, and whimsical paper, oh my!  I can already tell that this paper is going to be used LOTS over the next few weeks, it's SO fun and funky- I just adore it!

...and HERE is my girl's creation.  I LOVE how she colored up Piper on Kraft paper, and her interpretation of the sketch.  She is so amazing to watch as this all unfolded:

Isn't it cute?   Well, JUST because my girl is so excited to be featured on TGF's blog today, she is giving away a PIPER to ONE LUCKY COMMENTER here on my blog...so be sure to leave some love and we'll draw the winner to announce on the TGF BLOG during our RELEASE DAY event...which reminds me:

We sure do hope you'll stop by the TGF Blog tomorrow, beginning at 12:01 am CST for our"BLUSHIN' into SUMMERTIME" DT Blog Hop/Release Party.  The ENTIRE JULY RELEASE will be up for grabs (and this is One HUGE release!) as well as some prizes and SUR-prises going on around our Facebook page, etc.... we definitely don't want you to miss a single minute of the FUN that we have in store for you, so we can't wait for you to join us then!  Don't forget to stop by the Farm Fresh Challenge Blog tomorrow for another awesome "Throwback Challenge" too!  As new meets old, there is a TON going on this month on the Farm...thanks for being a part of it and ENJOY the HOT new releases tomorrow...all SIX of them!!!!"

See you back here TOMORROW!

Wow I love the new creeper release. Piper is way cool!! Madelynn did such an amazing job with her colouring and card making. I hope my daughter (she's only 2 so still lots of time) follows in my footsteps too and enjoys colouring and making cards one day.

Oh Jessica. I am soooo excited for this sweetheart. As you can tell the Creeper Crew's are my all time favorite stmaps. They just have so much personality. I love, love this your card and the papers that you have used. I just purchased a 6x6 pack of it for my treat to myself this payday...:O) I also just love how you have colored her hat. Tooo cute!

Ok, you know that the creepers are my FAVE!!! and that I only have Sweet and toxic.... so putting this out there is like dangeling the proverbial carrot in front of the bunny.... one hop (blog hop that is) and I'm soooooo close to it....

Your DD is so stinkin' cute!!!!!! She takes after her momma, with this sketch she's an all star. she's "creepin'" right on into this stampin' world.... I guess you are going to have to start another blog just for her to showcase her tallent. Must be in the jeans of the fam.... can't wait to see more from her... such a fresh new perspective... her coloring is awesome and the kraft paper is just perfect for the New creeper!!! How fun!!!

You must be so stinkin' proud Jess! Congrats!
