New Release Showcase - April 2020


It is time again for our New Release Showcase!  Glad you can visit us today.  I have been finding it difficult to focus lately with all that going on.  I am grateful to have art and gardening to help me feel grounded.  I am sure that anyone who colors and do things with their hands understand what I'm saying.

In my area, the weather has warmed up to the point grass and weed seeds are starting to germinate.  I am also seeing a lot of "volunteer" sunflowers popping up all over.  So, this month's releases are inspired heavily by nature.  I have three lush floral images plus the latest addition to the more illustrative style of zodiac images today.

First, check out the elegant bridal floral titled Peony Bridal Bouquet and the different takes on this image by our talented designers!  And don't let the title limit your imagination into thinking that this is only for wedding cards.  I already had "Peony Bouquet" digi, so I had to give it a slightly different title, and sometimes, you don't want to go with '2'.

Next up, we expand on the peony floral theme with Peony Corner.  As you will see in our designers' work, this is a versatile image for just about any occasion.  Luxurious petals make this such a fun and satisfying image to color.

Next, we have another sweet floral image, Spring Posey.  It's a small bouquet of dainty flowers like violets, pansies, and lily-of-the-valley tied with a ribbon.  Another versatile image great for just about any and all occasions you'd want to make a card for from birthday to sympathy cards.  Check out the inspirations created by our designers.

For the final image, I have a new image in the illustrative zodiac series today, Taurus.  Taurus is the second sign in the zodiac, but this image is the third release in the series, following Gemini and Aries.  I've made this image available in two versions - the original version and the no-horns version.  You get both files in a single listing at either of my shops.  Let's check out the inspirations our designers came up with for you.

And here's something that I was struck with an inspiration, then later again to finish so I could bring her to you today.  Since most of us find ourselves staying home for uncertain length of time under the circumstances, I was inspired to bring an angel for you to color.  I'm calling this image "A Healing Prayer", and this lovely angel is your Gift-with-Purchase this weekend with any purchase.  This promo is not automated like the digi downloads, so please remember to allow up to 24 hours for me to send you an email with an attachment.

Coloring helps us stay grounded and focused.  And as we know that fear can be detrimental to our health when we need it the most, I would like as many of you to have the chance to bring this angel home to color - to distract from worry, to relax a little both mentally and physically, and to meditate upon the image with your vision of the world at peace that you'd like to experience.  Stay well and stay safe.



Check out the lovely samples created by the AW designers using this gift image!

New Release Showcase - March 2020



Welcome to our New Release Showcase!  We have a lot to share with you today.  But first, let me introduce you to our newest designer to the AW Showcase Blog DT family, Susan Sudbury!  Many of you know her from our FB Group Challenge DT for her amazing inspiration projects as Susan's work always packs a punch both in terms of creativity and attention to detail.


"Hi, I'm Susan, and I live with my pup, Java, in Saskatchewan, Canada.  I have 2 grown kids that encouraged (forced) me to start blogging after I'd been cardmaking a few years.  This was about 6 years ago, and I haven't looked back since.  I've always loved crafting, and buying craft supplies, and have dabbled, or dove into, pretty much everything.  I'm happiest when I'm creating :)  I'm thrilled to be on the Aurora Wings Showcase team, as Mitzi's images have been my favorites since I've started this little journey on here :) "

Welcome aboard, Susan!  Let's get the showcase started with the Peony Sprite!  She is petals all over.  As peony flowers are so large and loaded with petals, each bloom looks like a bouquet in and by itself.  Hope you find her fun to color.  Now check out the fabulous inspirations created by our talented designers.
