MFT Monday

Hey Everyone!! I am back with my card for the My Favorite Things sketch challenge hosted in the members forum on SCS. The sketch challenge is hosted by Cindy Haffner, and is always amazing!! Speaking of MFT, have you seen the sneak peeks for this weeks release?? They are amazing, and I can't wait for the party!! You can find all the info about it here, including info about all their new things they are doing this month. All I can say is that I picked the wrong month to win the Guest Designer contest, but don't think I won't be playing this time!! My card was made using the mini set How Sweet It Is, and I just love this one. Most of the teasers I have seen, have had some sort of sweet in them, so when I went to do this sketch, I automatically thought of this set. The DP on this is some Cosmo Cricket Honey Pie paper, and I just LOVE IT!! The brads are from the stylized silver hardware from SU. I colored my main image in with my markers. It was stamped on some watercolor paper that I picked up at Walmart. I just happened to be in that section and thought I would try to find something that isn't so yellow. It isn't as good a quality as SU's, but definitely a better color. The flower is from Petaloo and the ribbon is from SU. Thanks for looking and have a great day!! I will be back tomorrow with something Prettie for you!!

The Whole Enchilada

When I looked at today's Technique Lover's Challenge, I wasn't going to do it. The challenge was to make a set of 3x3 cards and a box for them to go in, or The Whole Enchilada. Now, I am not much on making boxes and sets of cards, and honestly, I have no idea why but my pal Jodi(kharmagirl) convinced me that I needed to give it a try, so I decided I would. I originally bought this set after seeing some of her fabulous creations, so I decided that I would use it to make my set. The box was made first using one of the patterns linked to the challenge. I decided that I wanted my box covered with DP, so I cut a piece the same size as my card stock and glued it on. I made the band using another piece of the Summer Picnic DP and then wrapped my ribbon around it. I stamped all my fruit in Real Red once and then in Wild Wasabi, and cut out the different pieces. I then covered my fruit with crystal effects to make it shiny. I tried to do a different layout and ribbon on each one, but I put silver brads on all of them, because you know I love my brads!! That is all for me for now. I am off to try to do the My Favorite Things sketch for today!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
