Welcome back friends & Happy Thursday! I have to tell you all a BIG secret...shhhh....now promise not to tell okay? I have taken my hubby's toolbox and I am building an ARK!!! LMBO-- No lie, we here in VA need an ark to survive this summer I do believe. We've had over 6 inches of rain in a matter of days & more storms & rain on its way. I have NEVER seen soooo much rain & flooding in my entire life--hideous people, just hideous I tell ya...hmpfffff!! I'm gonna float away in my ark to somewhere sunny 300 days a year--so if you happen to live there you will see me floating by real soon, 'kay!!! LOL! Floating on.....both projects today use the SCS Sketch so it's Double Time!!
**If you haven't entered my 200,000 BLOG HITS BLOG CANDY, you have until tomorrow nite at midnite (EST) to do so right HERE!**

Congratulations & thanks everyone for entering & leaving me so many sweet comments--makes me so very happy!! The Magnolia-licious DT will have another blog hop coming in July for you too!
So today I have another fun sneak peek of the NEW Anki's Sweethearts for SCACD that will be available to buy at Susana's store tomorrow!! You can enter to win a whole set & a signed print over on the store blog "Follow Your Heart"--but the deadline is 11 pm(EST) tonight to enter, so hurry on over there!!
Today I've used "Soccer Isac" for my card and the SCS sketch #232--love this sketch which is why I used it twice (giggle). I colored him up with Copics to match this fun dp from DCWV's "Grade School Stack" and added some diamond glaze to his soccer ball for shine. The back panel was embossed w/ my Cuttlebug folder, I added some fun glitterdots and the sentiment is from Gina K's "Kindred Greetings for Kids". Susana has also come out with a set of Susanaments (sentiments) for Anki's new stamps that match up well too, and those will be available tomorrow also. Don't forget to hop around the DT blogs today to see some more sneakie peekies (list on sidebar) and stop by the store blog to enter for the yummy blog candy!
Second card today uses the same sketch but this time I used a new stamp from the "Graduation Collection" available at Magnolia-licious. Isn't this "Graduation Tilda" so cute in her cap & gown--they have "Graduation Edwin" too which I'll be making a card with next week to give to my son for his 5th grade graduation! I embossed my shimmery silver cs from PTI--such a fun look! The dp is from DCWV "Alphabet Stack"--I love the shimmer in the letters and so much fun to use for a graduation card! After coloring Tilda with Copics I added some Pixie Dust Shimmerz to her cap & gown--gotta have some bling on graduation day ya know. I also added some blue to her gown & in the cardstock so it wasn't all b&w--break up the colors a bit. That is a metal plaque that say's "Congrats" that I put on cs & added stars to the side--fun!
Hope you liked both of my projects today & don't forget to stop back by tomorrow for the Anki's Sweetheart release & another sneakie peekie of the new Whiff of Joy stamps "Women's Delight"!
