Two New Hanna Sets!!!

Hanna's got a hot new motorcycle! 'Route 66' is a new set that will be released this Friday (Feb. 22).
I went over the entire image with a clear gel pen and Spica pens to give Hanna's outfit and motorcycle some shine and sparkle. (I'd love to have a motorcycle with this much 'bling', but I'd probably seriously harm myself if I had something like that!) While making this card, I kept thinking of black leather jackets with silver studs, so I added a bunch of silver brads to give it a similar look. I also realized that this card doesn't have any ribbon on it---a first for me in a VERY long time!! It still feels like it needs something, but I think I'll leave things the way they are---I'm afraid I'll have to start lining up those brads all over again if I tear it apart.

This is a new set called 'Spring Time', which is being released this Friday (Feb. 22). Adorable images in the set---just begging for me to put Hanna, in her sweet little Easter dress, in the middle of an Easter-egg hunt. I paper-pieced Hanna's dress, then cut out the fence, bunny, grass, and all the tiny eggs. I added Stickles to the eggs, and the bow in Hanna's hair, for a bit of sparkle. The soft, pastel colors in this American Crafts DP make me think of all the little girls in their frilly dresses on Easter Sunday. I have two boys, so I've never had the chance to buy all those frilly, beautiful things for a little girl. (That's why I love shopping for gifts for my nieces so much, I guess!)
