Not long to wait now until the new Hanna Stamps release and tomorrow the fabulous new stamps will be available to purchase after the release party! Click the link for more details!

The images I have used today are from a new set which will be released tomorrow and feature the gorgeous Hanna and her Muscle man. Boy I wish I looked this good in a bikini! There are lots of fabulous accessories in this set which would be great combined with this couple or used individually.

Again I have ripped up some fine sandpaper for my sand effect. The palm tree was cut from the Paper Dolls cartridge on my Cricut Expression. The "COOL" lettering stickers were a gift from my friend Agnes. Thank you sweetie! My images are coloured with copic sketch markers and also Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps for blending. The stripey paper is from the MME Magnolia stack. The sentiment is from Pink Cat Studio.

I received the above award from Vicki yesterday. Thanks so much sweetie!

Be sure to check out the Hannah Stamps team blogs for lots of inspiration!

May Guest Designer: Pam Varnell
May Guest Designer: Nikki Fairbairn! :-)

Have a great Sunday and see you tomorrow with my last sneaky peak.
