MTE April Release

Today is April's release at My Thoughts Exactly!!

Here's a look at the sets being released:

There's a total of 4 sets being released.  The 2 sets pictured above will be available in both big and mini sizes!!

You should have come from Jessica's blog, if not please start at the My Thoughts Exactly Blog, as you don't want to miss out on all the wonderful inspiration!!

I created two cards for today's release; 1 birthday card and 1 graduation card.


First I created a graduation card for my brother-in-law's girlfriend! 

I used the More Mini Thoughts set for this card.

I just love how it turned out:
Yay, me for having her card done already!!  I knew when I got this set it would be perfect!

I added some CI Paint shimmer on Mango to the dots on the numbers to give me a little shimmer!

Next I created a card using the Big Thoughts set!

I love how this little boy card turned out!  Especially since I didn't have much time to create it!  My Father-In-Law asked me to create a 1st Birthday card for a little boy...30 minutes before he needed!  So I quickly put this one together!  And I think it turned out pretty cute!

I just LOVE the sets being releaseed today!  They are so much fun to work with!!

I love your cards, I needed your inspiration when I had to make graduation cards for 4 years! But it appears now I'm safe in the inspiration area for the next couple of years! Great work!

The graduation card is wonderful...and the new stamp set too!

These are fabulous! I love the multiple sentiments you used on the second card, so clever!

Great cards. Incredible job on the 30 minute card. It takes me longer than that just to pick the paper.
Both cards also show how versatile the new stamps sets are. I can see them being added to my mini stamp collection.
