Yep, you heard me right, this is my SECOND night in a row using SU only!! Wahoo...I will say, I am missing my spiral clips a tad...wouldn't one look so cute up in the corner? I think so, but in an effort to keep it all SU, I left it off!! I even went as far as to color my twill tape with my Barely Banana marker to make it match..yep, I rule. It ended up really dark though, don't know why, but I still like it. My image was even colored with SU markers, which do NOT blend like my Copics, but I worked it out. I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the sprinkles on the cupcake and the flame...cute huh!! All images, punches, and embellishments are from SU. I made this card for today's Color Challenge-Barely Banana, Lavender Lace, and Basic Black. They also said we could use gray, but I just put some with my Cool Grey Copic under the image...I know, I cheated a little, but it NEEDED it, LOL!!
Well, that is it for me now!! Thanks for stopping by!!

Hi, and welcome to this month's mid-month My Favorite Things release HOP!! The hop started at Kim's blog, so be sure to go there to get started. If you are here now, you should have come from Jody's fabulous blog. You back? Good!!
This month we have a SUPER cute new Bubble Bath Flopsey for you....isn't it SWEET!! I LOVE that we finally got Flopsey in a bath tub!! For my card, I started by stamping my image on an MFT Perfect Panel twice. I then colored one completely, and just the tub on the other. I then cut out just the tub, and then cut out the whole image using the out of the box technique. The second tub was then popped up on top of the other tub to give it some dimension. It was layered with Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose and Pretty in Pink. I did some piercing, added crystal effects to the tub, and then added some Icicle stickles to the bubbles. The DP is from the Chocolate Kiss collection from MFT. I used SU oval punches to do my sentiment, and the Pretty in Pink layer was run through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder. My brads are from Hobby Lobby and the ribbon is from SU.
Well, that is it for me now!! The next stop on the hop is Frances' blog!! Get to hopping and have fun!!
So, I am back today with another MFT teaser, and yes, I am using my new FAVORITE Annie LaPoint image, again!! I just can't get over how GORGEOUS it is!! Seriously, it is amazing, and SO FUN to color!! I started out by stamping my image on an MFT Perfect Panel,and then I colored it using my Copics. I then cut it out with my Circle Nestabilities and layered it with Bravo Burgundy. I stamped my sentiment directly onto my circle. For the base, I took Bravo Burgundy, So Saffron, and Pink Pirouette and layered them. Next, I put a piece of Gina K. White, and then used 4 square pieces of Parisian Summer DSP. The ribbon is from May Arts, and my brads are some that I bought at Hobby Lobby. I got asked the other day about my piercing and the answer is yes, I do use a template. I use the Mat Pack from Stampin Up as my template, except for circles and ovals. For those, I emboss my shape, since they are always cut out with my Cuttlebug, and then follow the embossed line free hand. Sometimes I am a little off, but I don't mind!!
Don't forget to come back tonight for the mid month HOP around the blogasphere!! Also, since it is MFT's 3yr anniversary, all the Bubble Bin sets are on sale for $3 this week, that is a HUGE savings, so you better get there and quick!! Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!!
