TCM May Release Blog Hop

Welcome!

It is release day! All the new May stamp sets are available for purchase online through The Craft's Meow store and the new Typically Teen stamp set is May’s Gift with a $50 purchase!

Today we are celebrating the together by doing a large group blog hop and if you leave a comment on each designer’s blog as you hop along, you will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win this month's entire release!
If you're following along the hop, you should have arrived here from Ivana’s Blog. If you are just stopping by, please go to The Craft's Meow store blog to start at the beginning so you can enjoy all of today's fabulous projects!

I have two projects to share with you today.  My first one uses Grads & Dads and For My Dad stamp sets.
I used the tie from Grads & Dads with the father sentiment from For My Dad to create this card which ended up looking similar to mans outfit...not sure if any man would wear those wild pattern pants though J
The buttons are from a big jar that were my Grandma’s.
My next card uses Flower Garden, Typically Teen and Butterfly Kisses.
I stamped the flowers with various colors of SU ink and accented the centers with pearls and rock candy stickles. The sHappy Birthday sentiment is from Typically Teen and the butterfly is from Butterfly Kisses.
The pattern papers are My Minds Eye - Miss Caroline Dolled Up. I tried to follow the sketch for the May sketch challenge. You can still see the basic sketch even though I varied away from it a bit J

All of the designer's participating in the hop can be found on The Craft's Meow store blog in case you get lost along the way.  
Be sure to leave comments as you hop along so you can be entered to win all 6 new stamp sets release today! You have until Wednesday, May 23rd, 9:00pm PDT to leave a comment on each designer’s blog.

Before I send you on your way I want to thank you for all of your comments and support these past few days. I have had so much fun sharing TCM previews with you and have been very inspired by all of the TCM designer’s projects. I hope you have been too!

The next stop on today's hop is Iwona’s blog.
