Claudia & Company May Blog Hop!!

Saturday, May 1, 2010

Hello and welcome to the Claudia & Company May release!!

We're soooo excited about this one and I have a sneaky suspicion that you will too! :) (Be warned, this isn't your average blog hop post - it's a LONG one!) If you haven't swung by here from the Claudia & Co. blog, then you might want to head back there to start hopping with us, but if you have, then you're on the right track! :)

This month there are two of those adorable Puddle Jumpers we all love....but in addition to them, there is a little something extra that is going to tempt your a manner of speaking! ;)

Doesn't he just look so dapper in his big boy's tux? I think a tux does every man (in this case, boy) justice. Ok, are you sitting down? Good because that sentiment on my card is one of three that comes with Sammy PuddleJumper! That's right! This month the Puddle Jumpers come with their very own sentiments!! And that cute stuffed bear - Lori was telling us that she used to draw bears like this ever since she was in high school, so you can imagine how near and dear this little guy is to her! I used one of Claudia's 6x6 MME sample packs for the paper (LOVE this stuff!) and the layout is from last week's Cute Card Thursday sketch.

These next two cards showcase the full set Claudia & Company is releasing this month. It's called Tea Party and it's the reason why the Puddle Jumpers are dressed up this month!

Don't you just love these images?? There are 8 images in the set as well as two sentiments and they're a great size for coloring! I used two of the images as well as both sentiments and I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch (MOJO136) for the layout. The paper is October Afternoon's Fly A Kite collection. If I made a few more, I could make a set of them as a gift! Now if I could just find some more time while I'm at it! ;)

I saved my favorite card for last...Introducing Ella Puddle Jumper!!

Is she not beeeeeeeautiful?!? I think she may have borrowed her mummy's pearls for this soiree! hehehe And again, that sentiment, along with two others comes with this cutie, this month. I used last week's Friday Sketchers Challenge #99 and that YUMMY paper is from another 6x6 sample pack from Claudia's store.

Great stamps this month right?? Well, you are going to be really excited to learn that there are two more full sets that Claudia is releasing today that I haven't shown you yet! Yep! It's a sentiment set; one in English and the other in Spanish! So for all our Spanish friends, you can now create greeting cards in your native language!

Phew! That was long! :) Thanks so much for letting me have you for so long and now I'll let you pop on over to Risa's wonderful blog to see some more eye candy!!
