When Sweet Meets Sassy... Susana's Custom Art and Card Design New Release Blog Hop!

Happy Friday! It's an extra happy day for me because I have the honor and pleasure of participating in a blog hop today celebrating the latest Victoria Case release at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD)!!! The fun begins on the SCACD blog, where you'll find the links to all the blogs on today's hop just in case there's a break along the way. If you've arrived here from Lori's blog you're on the right track!

My first card (above) features one of the fun new images in the The Retro Crew Collection! This cutie is Hot Stuff. Isn't she wonderful? If you buy the entire set of four images, you get a bonus lava lamp stamp. Cool beans! Retro is hot, and Hot Stuff proves it!

My second card features a gorgeous image from the Bonita Collection. She's called Victoria Bonita, named for the artist Victoria Case. Isn't she beautiful? There are also four images in this collection, and if you buy the set, you get a flourish stamp as a bonus. Once you see all of the images, I know you're gonna want them all! I know I do!

Good news for European buyers... you can buy SCACD stamps directly from Quixotic Paperie, exclusive retailer of SCACD images overseas!

Both of my cards feature patterned paper by Basic Grey, which you can find at SCACD, along with bundled Copic markers that you can select based on sample artwork. Check it out! The embellies on my Hot Stuff card were made by my dear friend Sarah Martina Parker, and those on the Victoria Bonita card are Basic Grey coordinating chipboard pieces.

Next on the hop is the wonderful Kim Costello's blog. But before you go, I have another exciting annoucement... SCACD will be starting a fabulous new challenge blog in April!!! Yep, that's right! You can jump over there now and become a follower so that you'll be right up to date as things develop. I'm over-the-moon thrilled to be on the inaugural design team!!! I still can't believe it! How lucky am I???

Okay, I won't keep you a moment longer... on you go to Kim's. Enjoy the hop!
