Winter in August?

* be sure to read all the way to the end of this post *

What better way to cool off on a hot August day than ice and snow! Today is the day Our Craft Lounge releases their 31 new sets to retail locations. Yup... I said 31! 31 sets of TOTAL cuteness!

So... to cool you off on this hot August day, let me introduce you to Tweet Winter Wishes.

My first card shows the adorable little birdies in this set. Oh how I wish you could see the glitter and sparkle on the snow!

This next card has glitter, sparkle and some of that awesome Sparkly Fluff on Mr. Snowman's scarf, hat, mittens and earmuffs. I love Sparkly Fluff!

Both images were colored with Copic markers and accented with Spica pens.

You can find a list of retailers that carry the Our Craft Lounge lines HERE . Eclectic Paperie is carrying the FULL line! (I love eP!)

So... why did I tell you to read to the end of the post? Because we're giving away a Tweet Winter Wishes set to one lucky person! Just leave a comment telling me which is your favorite new OCL set (and you sure can say ALL of them! lol) The winner will be chosen at 8:00pm on Sunday (8/9). Be sure and leave your name and email so I can contact you. If a winner is chosen without contact info, I will have to draw a new name.

Want a chance to win more new sets? Hop on over to The Lounge and check out the list of fabulously creative girls who are each showcasing a new set... and giving that set away! wooHOO! I love giving stuff away! :o)
Happy Hopping! (and I hope you are nice and cooled off *wink*)
