New Release Blog Hop with 2Sketches4U

Hey bloggers, it’s time for our New Release Blog Hop!  If you’ve just joined us, you’ll want to head over to the start, at The Cafe Store so you’re sure to get in on all the crafty goodness we have to offer.  We’re super excited to be sponsoring the 2 sketches 4 u challenge site this week so be sure to head over there and join in for extra chances to win some TCC digi stamps after you hop along with us.  They’re also using some TCC images so you’ll really want to head over there and see what they have for inspiration as well.

Now, if you’ve been hopping with us, you came from Georgia’s site and you’re right on track… only us left!

We’ve been working with Shelby Cobra digital image and I must admit, at first, I wasn’t sure what we’d use this gem for, however, upon starting to craft with her, let me tell you what an asset this image is going to be in your arsenal of digis!!!  We were thinking of all kinds of ideas for her and her uses… a new driver card, birthday, father’s day, travel 'bon voyage’, teen birthday, (any boy occasion actually (and a few girls I know too) and so much more!  Without further ado, here’s our creation (another wonderful colouring job by Kelly too!)…

Shelby Cobra

20100808_7 Using Laura’s fantastic sketch – flipped (please note, we’ve never followed a sketch before, so bare with us, we hope we didn’t flub it too badly)


Well, by now, we hope that you’ve commented on all the DT blogs in order to get a chance at winning the digi they worked with as well as the Grand Prize, which is the entire August New Release Set!!!

Also, we know that August can be a bit tough on those pocket books so we decided to have a sale… we’ve put all of our inventory on at 40% OFF, yes, that’s right, all of it, for a limited time only…

I almost forgot… we also have a freebie for you all, just for joining us!  If you’ve seen this at 50/50, we have been moved to October, so we’re going to do you something different for then and thought we’d share this with everyone… (you can download an unwatermarked image at the store, click the image to get there)


Well, that’s it, we’d love to hear your thoughts on the images we’re offering or anything you’d like to see!

Take care, happy crafting,

Kendra & Kelly
