FTTC13 Swing by..., TSG Sneak Peek day two

Hey everyone!!! I have lots to show you today!!! In this post I have the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday and the *There She Goes* Sneak Peeks #2!!!

I'm starting off with the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge. Today Cindy Haffner has prepared an awesome Sketch for us!!! For all the Samples and on how to play along please visit the Flourishes Blog!!!

For this card I used the beautiful Stamp Set by Flourishes - Swing Set.

I inked the image in Memento Black and water colored it with - Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze. I added some small Pearls to frame the circle!!! At the end I added some Candle Light Shimmerz to the dress.

The Kiwi Kiss squares are embossed with the Cuttlebug folder - Fancy Corners. The sentiment was also inked in Black and punched out with the Small and Large SU Oval Punch and the new Scalloped Oval Punch. At last I adhered the sentiment ovals to the Striped Kiwi Kiss Ribbon.

If you plan on playing along with us on the Sketch please use the keyword *FTTC13* when you download the card onto SCS!!!

***************************************************

The following cards are for the There She Goes Sneak Peek!!! Today we are featuring an Alphabet Set called A to Z and 1-2-3. I made two different Samples, because I was in the groove...LOL!!!

My middle daughter Rebecca's birthday is coming up the end of May and I figured I'd go ahead and work on some Invitations.

For these cards I used the DP from the Petals & Paisley Collection.

I personalized each card with the girls name that is invited. Jessica will be carrying a new acrylic block which I used to add the letters - make sure to check the store for it!!!

The little flower gems are from Michael's. I think it's a cute little girly girl touch :) To finish the card off I added the Pretty in Pink 5/8" Ribbon.

Hope you like them???

*****************************************************

With the second Set I went a bit more formal. I thought I'd make myself some monogrammed cards to have handy if I need to mail a card off really quick.

I used my favorite Color Combo one these :) - Black, Red and White. The DP is from Moxxie.

The circle was inked in Basic Black and the *S* was inked in Real Red.

Next I punched the image out with the 1" Circle Punch. The following Real Red and White CS were punched out with the 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Circle Punch. I raised all of them onto the Scalloped Circle Punch (all Punches are from Stampin Up).

To finish it off I added a Black Satin Ribbon (Walmart).

Do you want a chance to win this Set??? All you have to do is stop by all the Trendsetter's Blog and comment on their A to Z and 1-2-3 cards and then go back to Jessica's blog to enter your name to Mr. Linky.

Since I'm the end of the blog hop line, please make sure you haven't missed any of the Trendsetter's post - Jessica, Angela, Becky, Christi, Faith, Holly, Jen, Jessie, Joanne, Jodi, Julie and Makiko.

Hope you stop by again tomorrow for another awesome sneak peek??? ~TFL~
