Gina K Designs new Release: Basket Additions and Strength & Hope!

Hi, everyone!!!  I'm baaaaaaaaack!  ;)  We've been here in Portugal for about three weeks now and we're ever so slowly getting  adjusted to life here.  We're not in our rental house yet but hope to be soon!  I write all about our overseas journey HERE if you are ever curious!  ;)  

Anyway, welcome to this month's Gina K Designs New Release!!!  Yea!  Today I am excited to show you two of the new sets starting with Basket Additions by Melanie Muenchinger.  Melanie has done it again with supplying us more wonderful images that coordinate with her "Spring Basket" and "Holiday Basket" sets!  Here is "Basket Additions":
Don't you just love it?  Of course, I was drawn to those crafty fillers right away!  Here is a card I made using that image and the basket bottom from Spring Basket:
I wanted that craft basket to have some "life" to it so I colored it in fun, bright colors (Copics of course!) and used DCWV's Lemon Flower polka dot paper for my background.  

Next up is one from Theresa Momber called "Stength & Hope".  This is a very neat set because Theresa will be donating all of her profits to Breast Cancer Research for the first month of sales.  Isn't that wonderful?  Here it is:

And here is a CAS card I made using the butterfly image and the "strength and hope" sentiment:
It is hard to see in this photo but there are little pink dots in the background.  You know, sometimes I think that less is really more, huh?

Well, thanks so much for stopping by!  I was working with limited supplies (alll my other supplies will hopefully arrive by the end of November) but I think I managed to pull them off!  :)  

Now head on over to the other DT members blogs for some more great inspiration!



Blessings to you and yours,
Janice :)
