Adventures with Friends release at Colorado Craft Company!


Hello, hello!

The new Adventures with Friends release by Kris Lauren is now available at Colorado Craft Company and we are celebrating with a blog hop. As always, 3C is giving away a new stamp set from each stop on the hop, so the more you comment the more chances you have to win. Entries will be accepted until midnight eastern time on April 30th and winners will be randomly selected and announced on their blog May 2nd. They are also doing a HUGE complete bundle giveaway to ONE lucky winner. To be entered for that all you have to do is use one of the designer's affiliate links when you place an order. Those links can be found on the 3C blog and will be included in one of their emails as well. In the mean time, here's the complete list of hop participants for you to check out: 

Adrienne Kennedy
Nancy Sheads 
Sandy Allnock 

I've made three cards to share during the hop today and this first one is a long slimline that finds the cute squirrel from the Adventure in the Air set soaring through the sky in his single prop airplane. He is towing a special message for the folks watching from the ground below thanks to the Greetings Banner set. The little stars and sprinkles trailing behind the plane add to the fun of this high flying scene.

Next up we have this cute little bear pilot from the Oceans to Fly set, striking a hero pose just before take off. I love his confidence and how he really does look like he is ready for an adventure. I colored him and his plane into a simple scene that shows the long runway stretching off into the distance. It won't be long before this cutie hops into that plane and flies off into the big blue beyond. 

Finally, I've combined stamps from both the Oceans to Fly set and the Adventure in the Air set to capture this cute fly by between the bunny pilot and the foxy flying ace. Stamping them at odd angles and partially off the card front gave me plenty of room for both on this A2 sized card, plus it adds energy and movement to the over-all design. The small sentiment is another one from the Greeting Banner set and I thought it was perfect with these two high flying friends.  :)
Okay, time to send you on your way... thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!
