The winner will be announced the next day on the store blog. 

I made two cards to share with you today.


I used this darling lil' girl from Under the Tree. She is colored with copics - R20, R22, R24, R27, R46/G43, G46/Y00, Y11, Y15/YR20, YR23, YR24/E000, E00, E35, E37/W00, W0, W1, W2, W3, W4/N3, N5, N7.
I added glitter glaze to her hair band, bows and shoes. I used a clear glitter pen and a niji water brush to water color some sparkle on her dress. 
The base of the card is a french doily folded in half. The image is cut out using SB ovals and is matted on SB labels 1 and Decorative Labels 1. 


The sentiment is from Christmas Blessings
I finished off the card with ribbon, paper rose and flourishes.


For this card I used the holly branches from Christmas Lantern and cut out the poinsettia from the lantern image. Both were colored with copics - R20, R30, R32, R35, R46/G29, G43, G46. 
I added glitter glaze to the center of the poinsettia.


The sentiment is also from Christmas Lantern. I added pearls to the corners of the banner and pearls flourishes by the poinsettia. 

Which new set is your favorite? I know I can not pick a favorite, I love all 5 of them! 

Now I am going to send you on your way to the very talented, Stacey Schafer!  

Don't forget to leave a comment on each blog as you hop along for a better chance to win the entire October release!

Happy Hopping and enjoy your day!!

Great job coloring the little girl. I like all of the layers and how the dies frame her. The tag for the sentiment is a wonderful idea. I also like the design of your 2nd card. Clever use of the stamps for your image and sentiment. I love how the pearls look with the stamped Poinsettia. Beautiful job!
