Gina K August release inspiration blog hop: Day 2

Hi everyone!  Welcome to Day 2 of the Gina K Designs August Release Inspiration Blog hop!  Today we are spotlighting the sets, Heartfelt illustrated by Theresa Momber and Basket Buddies illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger. 

First up is a card using the puppies image from Basket Buddies.  Aren't these puppies cute??  The fun paper is from Echo Park, the Splash 6x6 pad.
 Next I have a card using the smaller flower image from Heartfelt.  I am not good at identifying flowers, but I think it is a Black Eyed Susan?  At least I colored it as such.  I went pretty simple with this one, just some coloring and scoring at the bottom.
 For even more samples of these new sets, you can visit each of the GKD Design Team blogs listed below.  Make sure you leave a comment here and on each of their blogs because Gina is going to draw two randomly chosen winners from all of the blog comments, and each will get a stamp set of their choice valued at up to $24.95!  Gina will announce the winners on her blog tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by!  I will leave you with a couple close up pictures.  Be sure to come back tomorrow as I share my Dare To Get Dirty challenge card with you!
