Good Morning and welcome to today's Claudia and Company February Release Blog Hop!!



If you've stopped here from Tracy's awesome blog, then you're doing great! But if you haven't and would like to hop along with us today, then head on over to the Claudia & Company blog to start your journey there! So lets get started shal we?!

Introducing...Puddle Jumper Charlotte!!

Ain't she sweet?! I am in love with her hair!! Having been cursed...I mean blessed, with curly hair, I have always been envious of anyone with straight hair. I always look like I stuck my finger in a socket! :) Anyway...

Puddle Jumper Charlotte is one of the digital stamps being released today and she's just a peach to color up! As with all of the Puddle Jumper sets, Charlotte comes with a little something extra...the potted flowers! I used my reinkers and aqupainter brush together with pretty paper from The Girls Paperie and this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #102 for the layout.

Next up...


Easter Basket by John Grutta!!

Just in time for Easter, Claudia and Company's newest illustrator, John Grutta has come up with an great image for us! This is Easter Basket is a digital stamp. Those chickies are too cute! I kept the layout basic since it's a pretty busy image. Papers from Basic Grey's old Lemonade collection and some polka dot ribbon was all this card needed. The nice thing about digital stamps is that you can make the image fit the nestie rather than trying to get the nestie to fit the image! Love that!

Introducing.....Puddle Jumper Ezra!!


You can't have a new girl Puddle Jumper to play with and not have a new boy image too! And Ezra is his name! :) Another image perfect for Easter, illustrator Lori Boyd has worked her magic again and created another cuuutie patootie!

I borrowed this week's Card Patterns sketch # 100 for the layout and the paper is from a 6x6 sample pack of My Minds Eye Quite Contrary Jack & Jill Collection.

Well, I hope this was enough eye candy for you today! Thanks so much for stopping by!



Your next stop is....my dear friend, KADIE!!

Trust me Sandra.. if you had the straight hair, you'd want curly! :) These are so totally fabulous... I say this all the time, but I just ooh and ahh over your watercoloring.. absolutely gorgeous!!

LORi said...

I agree with Tori...if you had straight...!!! What is worse you ask? My hair...it's not straight enough to be left straight and it's not curly enough to be curly!! Ughhh, I have to blow it dry with a round brush or it is part curly, part straight and part frizz!! LOL!
You cards are as I expected...FABULOUS!! You never cease to amaze me!! Thanks for everything Sandra!! You are more than a talented artist...you are a super duper person too!! ♥-LORi
