Are you ready for some Gina K!!??

Howdy Ya'll and welcome the the first day of the Gina K Designs February release! Its been a little longer than usual, so I KNOW you must be itching for some, I was! And tonight, we have 2 new sets, both by the ooberly talented Melanie Muenchinger!

Up first I have Spring Basket, oh what gorgeousness in this set! Full of wonderful Spring flowers! Here is what I did with it for today:



This just looks so bright and cheerful, perfect for a breath of Spring for someone's birthday this time of year! Or anytime really! Such fun to color too!

Next up is Basket Blessings....This set has so many cute images in it that can be placed into the above basket image...omg...just wait till you see them! I actually chose to not use the basket on mine, but just wanted to point at that they WILL fit into that basket! Here is mine for today:



When I first saw those cute little animals, they just screamed paper piecing to me...and to alot of the other DT too! LOL! Lots of us thought the same thing about them, lol. See? You dont have to be an expert at coloring for sets like these...paper piece them! They turn out adorable IMO!

Ok, ready for more eye candy? I know you gonna love all my fellow DT's gorgeous creations!
