Celebrating MFT Day!!

First of all, I wanted to pass along this note from MFT's fearless, and extremely AWESOME leader, Kim.
"As many of you know, Cammie introduced her Whimsical Autumn set through Gina K. Designs earlier this month, and is donating all her proceeds to an Alzheimer’s charity in memory of the Grandmother she lost to this disease a few months back. My Father suffered from Dementia, of which Alzheimer’s is a form, during the last few years of his life. It was truly painful to watch him morph into someone so completely different and unreachable. I really have empathy for those whose loved ones are afflicted, it is so overwhelming.Cammie is having a HUGE blog candy extravaganza in honor of National Alzheimer’s Day on Sept 21st. Be sure to check it out!I thought I’d like to help raise some funds as well in support of the cause, so what I’ve decided to do is two-fold: 1) Starting tomorrow, I am offering a 10% discount on ALL stamps on the site. Use the coupon code Cammie at checkout to receive 10% off all the stamps in your shopping cart. (It won’t discount your other merchandise, just stamps.) The coupon code will run from Wednesday, Sept 17th to Sunday, Sept 21st. 2) I will donate 10% of ALL proceeds (including money spent on other items on the site) to the National Alzheimer’s Association. FYI - The discount applies only to retail orders…"
With that out of the way, Today is the 20th of the month, so that makes it "Celebrating My Favorite Things Day". Why you ask, well, since the release is the first Wednesday of the month, by the 20th all your new stamps should be in your hot little hands and ready to get inky!! I used this weeks MFT sketch challenge for my card. I love these little bath tub images from MFT, they are just too cute!! This one is one of my favorites called Be Calm....don't we all need a little "calm" in our lives?? I think so!! I colored my image with my SU markers and the shower head and pipe with a silver glitter pen. I then layered it with Pale Plum. The larger layer is Perfect Plum and was cut out using my square nestabilities. It was then run through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss dots folder. The DP is from the SU retired paper pack Enchante. I did all my normal "embellishing" and it was done!! I have a ton of stamping to do, and I actually have some ideas to work with, wish me luck!!
