Release day for Lily at the Beach, last sneak peek and wedding anniversary!!

Hello everybody!!

This is the day most of you will have been waiting for... you can now get a set of Lily's at the Beach to play with yourselves. For me this is a special day because we are celebrating our fifth year wedding anniversary today! My husband still hasn't told me where we are going this weekend. I know we are going to bring the children to my parents in law tomorrow afternoon and that he is going to activate my navigationsystem in my car and I'm going to drive us to wherever we are going... but he refuses to tell me where that is!! Whatever it is... I totally appreciate the thought and his time and energy for arranging it. I'll let you know where we went on Tuesday. My post for sketch Saturday will go live on Saturday morning though :).

But you don't want to know all this... you want to finally see the new set! And here it is!! Don't you love it? As you can probably see there is one stamp we haven't sneak peeked before. We've kept that last stamp for today. Here is my card with the last little cutie:
Again the shells and the ribbon, the sea and the sand :). Papers today are an old line by Chatterbox. I think the paisley paper is so pretty that I never wanted to touch it but I thought it was perfect for this Lily set so I finally cut of a piece (I know, I'm stupid). Here is a close up of Lily:

The glass of her snorkel glass has been touched up with Paper Glaze but I don't think the picture shows. The flowers and all the other papers are also from stash. As you can now see, the sentiment is in the set.
Well that's it for me for this release. I hope you have liked my sneak peeks, I've putten a lot of work in my cards and I hope it shows :). I want to thank everybody for leaving me such lovely comments up until now, they made me feel like a million bucks :).
Please don't forget to check out the blogs of my Design Team buddies and our Guest Designer for this release Tori Wild. Tori thank you for joining us this release. I have absolutely LOVED your cards up until now and I'm sure I'll love the card you're going to show us today too. Great work sweetie!!
I'm signing of here :). I'm going to finish up my post for this weeks Sketch Saturday and after that I guess I'll speak to you on Tuesday! Have a great day and weekend everybody!!
