Hey ya'll!! Welcome to our 2nd day of March Release's Inspiration Hop! So glad you stopped back by and I sure love reading all of your comments! :D We have two sets we are showcasing today for you. Up first is Theresa Momber'snewest set called Wild About You...Ive been having lots of fun with this set!




I decided to show my elephant card I made with this set for today. I went with a bit of a CAS style card, did some embossing on the card base to add dimension to it and then just colored the elephant, cut him out and stuck it on the base! Looks like he is charging off the page, lol! Here is another card that I showed at the release party:



This set just screamed 'Do a Sunset!' to me! LOL! I did this by sponging various inks around a punched out circle. Love how this turned out!

Next is Rupa's newest set called Blooming With Blessings...this is SUCH an adorable set! Here is my card for today:



I chose to use the little duck and the sentiment that fits him perfectly! I colored with copic markers and added some sparkle, which you cant really see, with some copic spica glitter pens. This is a bright and cheery birthday card that will surely make someones day! :D

Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:



Thanks so much for stopping by everyone! See you on Tuesday, same time, same place with more inspiration for you!
