Two Sweet Pea Releases!

Today I would like to share two new releases from Sweet Pea Stamps, the first is from the Anna Marine collection and is titled Trick Me Once. The papers are digitals from Crafty Chaos, flowers are Wild Orchid that I painted with ummmm, the name escapes me at the moment but they come in little pots and are real popular...the brads are Queen and Co. She was colored with copics and the sparkle is Sakura glitter pen.
The sketch is this weeks challenge from PriscillaStyles.

This card features an image from Sweet Pea Stamps Joanne Schempp collection titled Luna Fairy. The papers are Bobunny, flowers and branch of bling Wild Orchid, the butterflies are punched. Can't recall who makes the corners. She was colored with copics with a touch of glitter pen.

Also wanted to announce this month's follower contest winners - since I have over a hundred followers I am giving away two stamps! The first goes to Have a Scrap Happy Day, the second to Crazy Creations. Please email me with your mailing info.
