Yay! Its finally here, Gina K previews! Day 1!

Wooohoooo!! I am so excited for the previews to finally be here, seems like it was forEVAH this time, although it wasnt, lol! It was just me being excited about it is all! Ok, here we go!

First up is an awesome mini stamp set called Hope is Faith by Gina! A portion of the purchase of every one of these stamps will go to the Red Cross, more on that below too!

The Hope is Faith mini stamp set retails for $9.95. It was created to raise money for the Red Cross to help with the devastation in Haiti. $2.00 of every purchase of this stamp set will be sent directly to the Red Cross throughout the month of February.

As the first responders to disasters around the world, the Red Cross is there to help with the basic needs of these people who have suffered so much. By purchasing this mini set, you will help to make a difference to people who are desperate by supporting an organization that works tirelessly to feed, clothe, comfort and care for those in need.

Hope is Faith Illustrator: Gina Krupksy

Here is my card:

I wanted my butterfly to be really 'flutterly' (is that a word?? is now, haha!) so I stamped it on vellum and colored it on the backside with copic markers, because I used Stayz-On ink and it will smear with just color on the opposite side of something like vellum or clear cardstock, works great!

And next up is Theresa Momber's newest set called Hang In There , and its true to Theresa's style, very detailed drawing and such fun to color!! Here is what I did for tonight:

I had such fun coloring this little red eyed tree frog! I had to google one though, I dont think I have ever seen one IRL! We only have then ugly ole bull frogs around here, lol.

Ok, now get ready for some more awesome inspiration!!
