Want a peek at some more of the new stamps that are being unveiled this week? Do you want to win some new stamps? Today, for the last day, IO team members will be showcasing some IO's brand new designs and you could WIN a $25 gift certificate to spend on some of these new stamps! To be eligible to win all you need to do is leave a comment on every team member's sneak peek post and the IO blog each day this week! Just that simple! Click HERE for the full link list and to get started!

Moving on to my creation!



I think this new image from Leigh Hannan called Cabana is just too fun. I acutally love this sentiment with it. Don't you just love the thought of having a cabana... all to yourself? Well, just as the sentiment says .. Life is not always a day at the beach! :-) I stamped the image and then colored with Copic Markers (YG01, YG03, B21, B23, B26, V06, E08, E97, E21, E25 and B0000) Cut it out, mat it up on a decorative paper oval, stamp the sentiment and create a "flag" and you're almost done! The rest is just matting it up, adding some paper  piercing and some buttons! I think this would be a fun girlfriend card to send to someone who just needs a little pick me up. Kinda snarky! :-)

You can see all of the new images by clicking HERE. If you want a chance to win some, however, don't forget to start at the IO blog, hop and comment on all the DT members posting each day this week! You can comment until 8 tonight! :-)

Awww, what a great image and sentiment. The curtains look like they're blowing in the breeze. I love how you colored it, the paper piercing, and the two buttons, not to mention the background. Thanks for sharing.

Nope, life is not a day at the beach, especially in my world. Sitting here OOHing and AAHing over your card when I should be adjusting the s-n-o-w. This is so fun and I LOVE that sentiment. The best words are the ones you can relate to first hand. Your cabana looks awfully inviting. Thanks for sharing and Happy Weekend!

So Cute Julie.
As much as I love winter, we are supposed to get a big snow storm tomorrow, I could use a day at the beach. :)

Have a wonderful day.
