Shannon's Sentiments Challenge and preview

It's time again for another Shannon's Sentiment release!!! It's a big reveal this month so we're previewing the sets over 3 days. Today we're featuring "Spring Time" and "Garden Time".

Today's preview is also being combing with our weekly challenge. Your hostess this week, Kapree, has challenged us to use 3 brads or eyelets on our cards.

The full sets with a blog hop will be starting at 6am EST on Feb. 15th at the Shannon's Sentiments blog. We will also be hosting a chat at our SNR group at 8pm EST on the 15th as well.

There are unique giveaways this month that I promise you won't want to miss out on.
Supplies: label, Sunflower and musical circle by Daisy D's; Red cardstock and background canvas and stem stamps by Stampin' Up, Yellow cardstock by Provo craft; Brads unknown; Green Rick rack by Fancy Pants; Brown ribbon by The Paper Studio; punch by Creative Memories; ink by Memento ink & Ranger, Liquid pearls and perfect pearls mixed together (the pots) by Ranger.
More inspiration from our design team to get your creative juices flowing for this challenge.

PS. I had done my card with the Valentine set not knowing we were to use the new release set. Ooops-a-daisy! Here is my other card with the three brads on it that I thought I would share with you.

The little black hearts are brads by Doodlebug Designs and the brad in the middle was made with my I Top by Imaginisce. The paper I used in this card is from all different places: polka dots by Bo Bunny, stripes by Scenic Route and I Top paper by The Paper Studio. Otherwise cardstock and red ink by Stampin' Up; white cardstock and card base by The Paper Co and Stickles and pink ink by Ranger.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend.
