LDRS Summer Luvin with my Bestfriend

Welcome all to the LDRS New CandiBean Summer Luvin Collection Hop!!!! 
I'm glad you could join us and if you popped in to see what I've been up to well let's just say I've been coloring A LOT LOL! Few things behind the scene and so forth.

Anywhoo I'm so excited to share my creation and be part of this hop with my awesome DT sistas.
 If you are coming from my lovely and talented friend Ann Marie's blog you are right on track. Also guess what we have a special guest none other than Diane Carubia the Illustrator of these adorable images. Please make sure to stop by her blog and leave some love :)

Ok let me walk you through my project and what I've done.
Firstly this frame was put together using these two cuties simply two besties enjoying summer flowers.
Their names are Jessies Summer Garden and Peekaboo.
Both colored with my Tim Distress Ink pads and Tim's markers too.

Listening to Lana Del Rey (she's my obsession lately) coloring these two has been so therapeutic and I finished it so fast I wanted to color more. 

Now you see that sentiment well ya just got a sneak peek on a sentiment collection part of  an upcoming release. Oh is it so cute!

sneak peek #2 on a different sentiment :) I wanted to hang a little on this small  of flowers. It seems big but it's really a tiny brown pot carrying some Begonias.

and did you hear for all those stampers out there. Our chants and frustrations have been heard! 

DO YOU SEE WHAT LDRS is doing OMG! I love it.
 Look look look.... 
I LOVE the idea of the stamped image that makes it so much easier to see for those that prefer to visual it in black and white or those who store their stamps in binders. Isn't it awesome!

So did I forget to mention the contest going on with the hop.

So, yes, I love the new stamps released and am delighted to have an opportunity to win them! Hugs, Gail
