It's Day #5 of Sneaky Peek Week. And that means that there are only 2 peeks after today before all the sets and dies that we've shown this week are released on January 10. Are you eggited, yet?
I'm eggcited because of this set, aptly named by Carole Burrage, "Bunny Side Up." This set is perfect for me, because I love to color, but unfortunately don't have as much time to color as I would like.
Take this card by Susan Liles. There are some nice areas to color, but really the main focus is on the bunny. You can color him as much as you like or as little. Susan colors him a pretty brown, but he'd look just as cute white with brown shadows. And the Lacy Floral Doily? It's the perfect backdrop.
Want to do a special technique on the bunny? He's big enough to do it on. Check out this card by Carole Burrage. See what I mean?
While you are at it, take a gander at CutUps Die number 4 in our January Collection. We call it "Eggs in a Basket." It's an embossed basket that comes with an egg die that you can use to fill the basket with as many eggs as you'd like. Or whatever you'd like. Carole has the eggs nestled in our Grass CutUps.
And see that pretty wide border behind the bunny? Place 2 scalloped borders from our "Queen of Heart" CutUps back to back. Then cover the seam with a pretty ribbon. Too Cute.
This card by Lori Tecler shows that this set is not for just Easter. The set comes with a variety of sayings for a variety of occasions. Even that bad hair day.
Want to see more? Then check out Jen, Nancy, and Swanky Stamper, Lisa Henke and see how they used "Bunny Side Up."
And while you are at Jen's blog, take a gander at her new SFYTT. It's the sketch that all the gals are using in this peek and The Cat's Pajamas is the sponsor for this month.

Location: In my stamp room getting ink on my fingers!
This and Feeling Cupidy are a very close 2cd to the new Sprinkle set (she'll always be #1 in my heart). Those long floppy ears with her popping out of the most beautifully decorared Easter egg certainly makes this set a must have!
It's Day #6 of Sneaky Peek Week. Only ONE more peek after this one and this stamp set and all the other stamp sets and dies you've been looking at this week will be available. On Tuesday, January 10, that is.
After I introduced the penguin and his little friend, the fish, in our last collection, I knew I had to bring them back for a little more love. This time we get to meet his lady friend. I wonder who will be happier with their Valentine.
If I had to choose a Valentine, I think I'd pass on the fish. I think I'd choose this pretty Valentine by Julie Masse. With its happy colors and bits of sparkly bling to dress up the Heart Rosette, and the ribbon held by the Anywhere Ribbon Slide on that panel made with the Queen of Hearts CutUps, who wouldn't. It's pretty stinkin' cute.
Or maybe I'd chose this this cute little lolly by Nancy Thomas. After all, just like all of our stamps and dies, it's made in the U.S. Sweet!
Or how about this darling card by Amy Rohl? How awesome is it that she used the egg from the NEW Eggs in a Basket CutUps and the hearts from the Heart Rosette? I think I'M in love.

It's Day #7 of Sneaky Peek Week. And that means that tomorrow, January 10 all the stamps and dies you've been seeing in the last week will be available on our website. Have you seen anything you liked? Well, you might just want to add this one to your list.
This set was designed by our very own Leigh O'Brien. And, when she came to me with the idea, my heart started to beat a little faster. Her idea was to have a Bingo card that you could customize for every special day in the month. Birthdays, Anniversaries and Holidays, you name it. My job was to make it happen, and to make it easy.
So, this set comes with a Bingo card with an empty "FREE" space in the center and at the top. The card's numbers are some most common "dates." Your special date not on the card? The set comes with the rest of the days of the month (and a couple extra). Just stamp the number you want in the blank center spot.
The set also comes with little graphics that you can use to highlight the date. And, it comes with words that you can stamp at the top to personalize your Bingo card even more.
Like this card by Carole Burrage. She's got the card gussied up for...you guessed it, Valentine's Day. Love how she decorated the card with our NEW Queen of Hearts Border and our Heart Trio CutUps.
Here's a pretty Valentine by Nancy Thomas. She uses the NEW Heart Rosette, "Gimme Some Sugar" and a couple of old favorites, "Love Letters" and the Stamp Trio CutUps. She dresses up the Bingo card with the word at the top and a little heart in the center. Wouldn't you love to get this Valentine?
And even I couldn't resist the lure of the "Build-A-Bingo" set. I've used "Feelin' Cupidy", the Lacy Floral Doily, and the Queen of Hearts CutUps, along with a bit of yummy Peppermint Divine Twine. Can you tell I love this release?
What I love about the Build-A-Bingo set is that you can make it as personal as you want, or as simple as you want. If you don't want to personalize the Bingo card at all, you can just stamp it and fill in the center spot with the "FREE" stamp. But, if you do, there are so many ways to do it. We've packed a lot into this 4" x 6" set.

And before I go, I'd like to give a big giant kitty SMACK to Lisa Henke for playing along with us this week. Her cards were so awesome and it was an honor to see how she used our stamps. Thank you Lisa!
