    What a great release and a stunning showcase selection from the team! I was unable to leave a comment on Marika’s post, as her blog mistook me for a bot! Loved your card – which features my favourite image from the release: Frappe delight! Might be a challenge to colour that beautiful hair, but it would be such fun to try, Jo x

    I´ve also always been a big fan of Christas work, and I really can´t pick one for any of the others, as they´re all just gorgeous, and your work here is amazing too Zoe. I love how you´ve used these beauties here.

    WOW, how you layer all your elements is just so perfect. You know exactly how to create depth, texture and the perfect backdrop for your images..Oh how i must learn..haha These are stunning, i love all the images but i think Sonia, and the Giraffe is the best…well i like the wine and coffee one too..ha ha.OK OK, the unicorn as well..REALLY did you expect anyone to pick just one of Krista’s images…humph..haha
    Have a fabulous day!! Loved the hop, great inspiration!

    WAUW thanks soooo much for an awesome hop here. I´m totally blown away with the talent these ladies have shown here. They´ve all made such amazing work with these totally amazing images, that Krista has drawn here, and I simply can´t pick one favorite for another,. They´re all so beautiful and sweet for different things and occasions, and I can see all of them used for sooo many things. Such a delight to have Krista drawing again and that we´re able to get them through you too, that has to be a match made in heaven, I´m sure. Can´t wait to see more like this in the future too.
