A Wags 'n Whiskers Sneak Peek!!

Don't you just love release time?! Well, this Friday May 7th marks the May release for Wags 'n Whiskers Stamps! The design team has been busy creating some spectacular sneak peeks for you and they start today! As a guest design team member for May and June, I was allowed to play along with the girls. These images are so much fun to colour, and just perfect for the fast approaching warm weather. We'll have previews today and tomorrow to give you a taste of the new release which will be available for purchase on Friday!! We are also having a fun BLOG HOP Friday to celebrate, so make sure to stay tuned for more details on that!

My sneak peek today features "Summer Fun Ansley" by artist Cris De Lara. How cute is this little gal?? Remember how much fun it was to pass the day away building sandcastles? I have to admit, I'm really not much of a beach person now...I just burn way too easily, thanks to my red hair. But I do remember loving the feeling of the warm sand between my toes and searching for sea shells.

I stamped "Summer Fun Ansley" on Neenah cardstock and coloured her with Copic markers.

Make sure to visit all the DT members to see what amazing projects they have made for the previews today! (Links to all their blogs are on the Wags 'n Whiskers blog.) Oh, and make sure to check out THIS post for details on how to win yourself the ENTIRE new release!!

Have a blessed Wednesday!

Melanie, this is just gorgeous!! I love your wonderful coloring of this image! That sandcastle looks so real!! Makes me want to go to the beach!! I'm not much of a beach person now myself...too much sand to get all over the place...but living in Florida with kids, it's something I have to deal with!! However, when I was a teenager, I spent the whole weekend, every weekend at the beach!! Thank you so much for being our guest!!
