Blog hop - Victoria Case for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design and Sketch Saturday

Woo Hoo! The day has finally arrived and I'm so excited to present "Belle", one of the nine stunningly adorable stamps from Victoria Case for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD), exclusively at Susana's store! We're having such fun doing a great blog hop so if you haven't come to my blog from Anki's then you've missed out on some fabulous creations! Our blog hop starts with our ever fearless and total designing rock star, Suzanne, and then progresses on from there. So if you've missed a step, believe me, you'll want to go back and start over! The end result is an opportunity to see this adorably cute collection! The winner of the Follow Your Heart blog candy will also be announced on the store blog at that time. So on with the cuteness!

My Belle is from the first series entitled "The Hearts and Hugs Collection" so yes, my dear friends, there will be more cuteness on the way! She's precious and don't you just love the Susanament that just matches her perfectly? The Susanaments area collection of 10 sentiments that fit so many different occasions so yes, you'll be seeing more wording on my cards in the future!

I followed Sketch Saturday's sketch for thise beauty. I love their sketches! She's colored with copics and I used some Siren and Moonlight Smooch on her leotard, some stickles on her tutu and some Glossy Accent on her shoes. The paper is from K&Company Wild Raspberry collection and I love the gold textured paper from The Paper Company. Don't you just love that gorgeous Petaloo Mulberry Wild Rose on top? Belle so reminds me of my Nichole and her recitals. Hopefully I'll have lots of recitals coming up from Allie and Emma!

So to finish up your hopping, head on over to Suzanne Dean's blog and see her gorgeous sweetie. It's going to be a real treat! Thanks for joining us and go snatch up these sweet little darlings - but after the hopping! Make sure to stop by Victoria's blog and congratulate her on her wonderful talents and gifts to us! You can also find her Design Team members blogs for their take on her new stamps! Go spread the love!
