The day has finally arrived !

It's The Craft's Meow 
May Release Blog Hop

I hope you stopped by from my friend & new TCM designer

If not, I would love for you to join us from the start at
because someone is going to win the
entire collection of new releases and it could be you !
More on that in a moment !



Today we are revealing our final set
and
the entire collection goes on sale!

Today's set is TCM's
FREE GIFT w/$50 PURCHASE
called
'Chalkboard Birthday'
illustrated by NinaB Designs


What a fun, FUN set !
I thought it would be fun to make a couple cards
using the washi tape I've been 'collecting'  LOL
I have jars full from Freckled Fawn, BasicGrey & Recollections.
I simply layered a variety of patterns
and coordinated with 'splatters' of ink using TCM's
'Typically Teen' set
{ which to this day, remains one of my fave sets }
I simply added a few fun silver pearls for a 'pop'



I thought it would be fun to go with a whole other color palette




Here is today's set . . .

FREE w/$50 purchase
