Day 1 of CDS April Sneak Peeks!

Hello All!
It is that time again...Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peeks!
I have 2 samples for you today.
The first is the new "Doodlebug" stamp set designed by the rockin' Kim Teasdale.

The second is from the AWESOME "Heartfelt Sentiments" set designed by the wonderfully sweet Laurie Wilson. This set comes with lots of pretty sentiments and some tiny images that are perfect for tags and quick cards. To see the whole set, go HERE.
This set is GREAT for CAS (Clean And Simple) cards such as mine. This card only took about 5 minutes.
Another element that makes for a pretty card is the AWESOME "The Paper Temptress" papers I used. They are: Vista Mica Metallic, Spring Larch Glimmer, Pink Lemonade Pop Tones, Heavenly White

You will want to check out all of the super talented DT's sneaks for this month. For a complete list of who is showing what stamps today, go visit Lori's blog.

Please check back tomorrow when I can share cards made with MY latest illustration. Wooohooo!
Please pop a quick comment so I will know you took the time to drop by!
Hugs your way!
True :D
