There She Goes! Confidential and Garden of Life Hop



It's another FUN month of New Release Sneak Peeks at There She Goes!  I'm excited to show you some great new sets this week!  And TWO sets today!

This is a fun and snazzy set that embraces the office worker in your life...that woman who holds it all together - or the one who can't wait for Friday to come! :)


I've colored up this *busy* girl with Copic Markers in some nice deep reds and gave her some classy black and grey tech all around her.  I think I'll be giving this to our Office Administrator as a little tongue in cheek thank you for all she does for the staff at Church keeping everything together.  I've been assigned with making the cards for all our Admin Staff for Administrator Appreciation Day - so this will be for our *Chief Admin*  :)  She's a great lady!  And I know she'll get a kick out of it.  


I've added some fun metallic brads as accent on the Spellbinder Grommet Tags and used some paper that's actually a bridal theme - Making Memories I Do.  

Now for set number two! 



This set is a beautiful breath of spring, and is illustrated by Chris Dark... I LOVE sunflowers....so I had to use them...


I've put together a few of the small sunflower images, coloring them up with Copics to like like it's just spring - not fall when their centers get really brown...I've colored the centers with pointillism, and sponged up the edges with warm Daffodil ink.  


I've also used the Blossom Two Spellbinders die to frame the image, and then the smallest of the dies to create a little sunflower as accent in a few layers adding a green gem in the center, just like the colored sunflowers.    The sentiment is just a portion of the larger sentiment that I could fit and sneak under the ribbon  - this part reads *beauty of it all*.   Inside I'll stamp the whole sentiment.

Lovely cards Christine - your coloring job on the first card is fabulous and I LOVE your use of bold bright yellow in the second, I think not enough people use yellow and it is nice to see it getting some love because it is such a bright happy color.
