Hi all!! One more day before the weekend begins!! Boy is it busy at blog land for me. So many new releases and fun!! Today I have yet another sneak peak of a new release for you from Wags n Whiskers called Joy Ride which will be available on Friday!! I just love this image and had such an awesome time coloring it with my copics. Isn't it just darling?!!!
I used this past Saturday's Sketch and Basic Grey Indian Summer paper. Each panel is dry embossed with a different embossing folder for some added texture. I also paper toled the image.
For more inspiration for this challenge, please check out the sneak peaks of my super talented dt sisters: Christa, Debbie, Jeanette, Jacqui, Karen, Lacey, Michelle, Nikki, Sharon, Tina, Melanie Holtz and Renata van Miltenburg.

Don't forget to hop back on over to the Wags n Whiskers blog tomorrow for our New Release Blog hop!!

Edited this post to include this creation as well. I know how posts lose exposure when you have too many posts on a day so I wanted to add this on instead....
Today is the Divine Diva Inspiration challenge. This week Lori sent us this photo:

I was inspired by all the white, textures and frames and butterflies in this photo!!

When making this card, I also incorporated The ODBD Stamping In Assignment Challenge SNTODBD9! The Assignment is any ODBD stamps! The Challenge is “A little Something Something!” Make a card or project using something “old” something “new,” and something “received!” Other stuff can be used, of course, but tell us about these three! You do not have to use a specific Our Daily Bread Designs set for this challenge but you need to use ODBD stamps. I used new white ribbon from ODBD that I had run out of and had to replenish, an old die cut from SU (Butterfly sizzix die), and the Classic Spellbinders frame I received from a dear friend. The stampsets I used are Ironworks Borders and For the Graduate from Our Daily Bread Designs. I just love this verse. Such a comfort!! It could be used for any occasion. I plan to use it for a wedding card for my nephew and his fiance next week.Recipe:
Stamps: Ironworks Borders and For the Graduate from Our Daily Bread Designs.
Paper: White CS
Accessories: Butterfly Sizzix die, Spellbinders classic frame, MS Butterfly punch, swiss dots folder, gold embossing powder, white stain ribbon, bow easy

Please note this challenge will go live at 9 a.m. EST I posted it a bit early since I have to leave and wanted to make sure it was up and running before I left. Too many issues with blogger lately. If you do create a card or project for the SNTODBD9 challenge, please leave a direct link here. If you upload your creation to SC, please use the keyword SNTODBD9.
