Grads & Dads ~ TCM New Release Preview Day Two

Welcome back!

We are celebrating Day Two of New Release Previews at

It's Graduation Season and Father's Day is just around
the corner and today, we have two
fabulous sets that fit both occasions.

The first was designed by Kaitlyn Ord
called 'Grads & Dads'

I called upon my CAS senses to create this card and I kinda like it.
I stamped the fab graduate's cap in Blueberry ink from A Muse Studio
and made the tassel from Stone baker's twine from The Twinery.

I am happy to enter this in to the Simon Says Stamp CAS Challenge.

Our second stamp set preview today was created by
the talented Michelle Bertuzzi
called 'For My Dad'

Can you tell I am loving this gray and blue color story ? !
I think this is pretty self-explanatory from a design standpoint.

Make sure you pop by
and check out the fabulous-ness
from all of the designers.
TCM is giving away a new release set
each day, so make sure you leave a comment
on the blog for a chance to win!

I am so glad you stopped by today and I hope
you will plan to come by each day this week
so you don't miss a thing!
