Release Day for the "Peekers" and a Blog Hop!!!

NOTE: If you are here for the Jesus Is THE Reason Blog Hop, please go HERE!


Good Morning and happy weekend eve, my friends!!! It is the OFFICIAL release day for the awesomely sweet "Peekers" Collection by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Stamp Company:O) I am SOOOOOOO excited I could *~*POP*~*!!!! Today, we will be teaming up with the mondo talented ladies of the Quixotic Paperie DT along with a few special guests:) Fun stuff and loads of inspiration ahead!!! You should have arrived here from Suzanne's awesome blog. If you didn't and arrived here first, then you will want to head on over to the top of the hop at Kim's magnificent blog.


Today, I have the pleasure of sharing "New Beginnings Peeker" :) Isn't this image the definition of darling?!? I don't have any daughters, but I remember Jonathon peeking in on Zachary just like this:):) Oh how they grow SO fast!!! I still cannot believe that my baby boy will be graduating in June! It seems like just yesterday I was pushing HIM around in a stroller. Okay...enough of my rambling...I just love this collection of sweeties cuz they seem to have a way of taking me down memory lane:)


I couldn't decide if I wanted to create a card for a baby boy or a baby girl, so I simply created both. And when I say simply...I mean simply. These cards took no time at all to whip up, which is awesome when you are crunched for time. These sweeties were colored with Prismacolor markers and parts of the image were painted with Creative Inspirations Paint (Fairy Dust). I wanted you to get an idea of the shimmer these paints create on your projects, which is why there are two pics of each card...and with Fairy Dust it is sheer...you can see the marker beneath:o) I just love these paints!!! Thank you Susana for introducing them to me!!


OOOH!! Want to hear another thing I love? You can get the ENTIRE set of Peekers for only $29.99...that's about $6 per stamp!!! Can you believe it? You can't beat that for deeply etched, quality red rubber...along with Susana's superb customer service!!! I simply love a great deal when it comes to crafty goodies...makes it easier for goodies to go from my "wish list" to my "got it" list:) Please tell me you can relate.


Thank you so much for joining us in today's Peekalicious Hop!!! I hope you leave the hop happy and inspired:) Your next stop is lovely Anki!!! I know she will have a gorgeous creation to share with you! Have a super Friday and a beautifully blessed weekend!!!

Before I go, I am entering today's cards into the following fabulous challenges:
