Here we are today to preview two new sets this time!  First up is the new set by Beth Silaika, Liam and Liz Lion.  This set is so adorable!  Here is what I have for today with this set:

I made a little shadow box for this set!  This was so fun to put all together, and it will lay flat for easy mailing!  It's got a bit of bulk, but wont cost an arm and leg to mail!  This one is going to my grandsom, Blake.  He loves puns!  Arent those lions just too cute though?  So fun to color too!  Here is a close up of this same thing:


Ok, next up is a brand spanking new set by Lisa Hetrick, Hello Beautiful!  Here is my card to show today for this set:

For this card I used water color metallic inks.  And actually, since I had just gotten these in the mail, i decided to see how they looked and was doing come color blocking...decided to use it for my cards background after I doodled on the rectangles!   Here is a close up too of this to show you the shine:

OOoo sparkly huh?  I love the script of the Hello too!
