Welcome back for another day of sneak peeks!  We are introducing FOUR new sets to you today!  I am featuring two of them, Life Is a Dance and Love Grows Here

Life Is a Dance was designed and illustrated by Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line.  It is a set of 9 and coordinates with Moka Morgana, which you can see by visiting the rest of the Baker's Dozen.  Being a dancer all my life (pretty much until I started a family), I just LOVE this set!  Even still teaching dance and my daughters taking dance make this set a must-have set for me. 

I used the Times & Seasons Collection from Echo Park for my card.  I colored the tutu with Copic markers and sprayed a pearl mist on it for a nice, subtle sparkle.  On the background, I embossed using the Musical Swirls Impression Plate

The second project I have to share with you uses the Love Grows Here set.  Love Grows Here was designed and illustrated by Emily Burger, our newest illustrator, for her Embracing Grace Collection.  This is a DARLING set containing 18 images, 7 of which are adorable tree vignettes. 

One tree is more adorable than the next!  There's a tree for every season too!  For my card, I used the Take Note Die 3, the Picket Fence Border Die, the Medium Scallop Border Die and a label from the Shopping Bag and Labels Die Set.  I colored the tree using Copic markers and then added some Buttercup Liquid Pearls.  The papers are from the Campfire Collection by October Afternoon.  I finished off the card with some Ladybug Doodle Twine

I hope you've enjoyed today's peeks!  Be sure to visit the rest of the Baker's Dozen for more peeks. . .and stop back again tomorrow!
