Technique Junkie May Day Release Hop!

 Oh......good gravy.....I'm so excited!!!  It's release day at Technique Junkies!  That means it's HOP time!  If you are just getting here, I sure hope you came straight from my pal, Beth's blog.  If you just stumbled over, WELCOME!!  I'm ever so glad you are here, but be sure to head over to the Technique Junkie Designer Blog for the beginning of the hop.  I don't want you to miss any of the beautiful work created by my team mates!

Didn't Beth outdo herself AGAIN??  That girl just never ceases to amaze me!  The new stamps are pretty amazing too!  Once I got started, I had a hard time stopping.

My first two projects were created using the new Starfish background.  It is just beautiful and delicate...and makes me want to head straight for some place beachy!

I created this background using Starfish and the Background Whimsy technique found on the Bodacious Backgrounds CD.  I cut a window, creating a frame to highlight the What Cancer Can Not Do sentiment. 

Using the same stamp and technique, I created this second card to feature the To The Moon sentiment.  As a mom of many, I've said this or a version close to it about a gazillion times!! 

My last card features the Dragonfly image and an altered sentiment from Old Friends.  I know you must tire of me saying this or that is my favorite.  I surely seem fickle as I am constantly changing my opinion of "favorite."  I can honestly say, however, that I nearly cried when I opened the package containing my Old Friends stamp.  Seriously.
And then, I nearly cried again when I finished this 6 x 6 canvas.  I'm so in love with this image.  And, the sentiment.  After applying paints and gesso, gellatos and more paint, the canvas really started to come together.  My excitement was complete when I finished the right hand corner with a combination of bee's wax, sequins, glass glitter and a few charms.  Then, I decided who I would give it to, and, I cried......just because it is so perfect for my pseudo sister.  I can't wait until she gets it!

BUT.....enough about me!!

All of the May Release images are on SALE 15% off for the next week!!  Add these to your wish list and keep on going!  There is more inspiration to be had!  You are now off to see what the ever talented, Gini Cagle, has to share!

Have fun and don't forget to be awesome!

TTFN, Jane
