Hello! It's an exciting weekend for Hanna Stamps! They release their new monthly sets on the first Monday of the month. So the weekend leading up is sneak peek time!
Up first on the Three Clovers runway is this little bombshell! LOL! This image is from a set called 5 Little Dresses. It is such a FUN set!! I had actually started another card idea I had in my head...but as I was coloring this chick she reminded me of Marilynn Monroe...so I decided to make a ♫ ♪ ♫ Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend ♫ ♪ ♫ card with extra bling! Can you see the bling on her dress? I should have taken a close up. >:( All around the edges of the card white cardstock is glitter too. I love adding glue to just the edges of my cardstock and dipping it in glitter! Gives glitz all around the image! And this sassy little gal love's glitz! LOL! There are 5 sassy gals with cute little dresses in this set...and 6 sentiments. It is Cute, Cute, Cute...Cute and Cute! LOL!

Once in awhile I try to get ahead of the game. Usually I am making my cards a night or two before they are due. For example, I am usually making my 3 Clovers Thursday Challenge sample the on Wednesday night before the day it's suppose to be up on my blog. It's just the way I am! But about 2 weeks ago I was looking ahead to the upcoming Friday challenges in the Hanna Stamps Forum on SCS and decided I would make the one due for May 29th. Ha Ha Ha, for once I am going to be ahead! What I forgot in my great plan is that May 29th was the first day of sneak peeks and I should use a new June stamp! I used BBQ Riley which was released in the begining of May. So I have 2 cards to share with you today. I think he makes a great Father's Day stamp! This weeks HS challenge is a terrific sketch provided by the talented Frances. You can view the deets and the sketch HERE. Why not join in?!

I used my Basic Grey Offbeat papers...great retro feel about them. Card measures 4.25x 5.5. Copics shown below.





Well, Ms. Maeve is being awfully quiet...which is NOT a good thing...Gotta run!

And don't forget to check out all the blogs of the Hanna Stamps DT for Sneak Peeks all weekend! (DT addresses are located on my sidebar)

Have a Congenial Friday!!
