Go Jodi, Go Jodi, GO GO GO Jodi!!

So, my friend Jodi(kharmagirl) is hosting the color challenge over on SCS this week, and she is SO excited( I totally would be too!!)!!! For today's challenge, she has chosen Baja Breeze, Really Rust, and Chocolate Chip. She gave me a heads up for the challenge so that I could post a sample along with hers. I used the soon to be released Falling For You image being released at Paper Pretties on Wednesday October 1st. We will also be having our Stampin In Your Jammies party that night at 7pmCST. There will be chatter, challenges, and lots of fun!!! Also, you have until tomorrow to sign up for the Stamp of the Month Club in order to get Angel Wings Sophia before she is released to the public, be sure to tell them that I sent ya!! And last, but not least, our Cutie Pie contest ends tomorrow at 8pm CST. Be sure to get your creations uploaded to the Paper Pretties gallery under Cutie Pie submissions to be entered to win three Sophia stamps including- Howdy Girlfriend, Falling For You, and the supah cute new Whiskers Sophia. My card today is made with the Falling For You stamp set. I stamped it on watercolor paper with Brilliance Graphite Black. After drying the ink with my heat gun, I used my SU markers as well as a blender pen and reinker to color my image. It was then cut out with my Oval Nesties and layered with the challenge colors. The DP is from Bella Rose(the chocolate) and Fall Flowers by SU. I added some large silver brads, silver clips with SU ribbon, and some wide Chocolate Chip stitched ribbon. I did a lot of piercing on this card it!!
That is it for me now! I will be back later with another teaser for the MFT release, trust me, you don't want to miss it!

So, how excited am I??? This is my FIRST official release as an MFT Sistah, and I couldn't be happier!! So, here is the scoop--My Favorite Things ( is having a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday, October 1 from 9-11 p.m. Eastern time. This month there are SIX new sets being released, plus a new storage system for your MFT stamps that you are gonna love!Head over to the MFT forum on to find out all the details and to find out how YOU can be the next MFT Guest Designer. We hope to see you there on Wednesday night!!
Now, those of you that come her often, or at least recently, know that the Paper Pretties PJ party is also on Wednesday night...YIKES!! So, I will be scurrying about like a chicken with my head cut off trying to keep up with both. Of course, that is AFTER I return home from my hair appointment that silly me scheduled for that evening too...FUN for me(not)!! SO anyway, her is my FIRST peek at what is to come on Wednesday for MFT!! This is a new set designed by the SUPER talented Stephanie Fizer. It is called Peppermint Cats. I used my aqua painter and Baja Breeze re-inker to color the background and my SU markers to color my cats. The cats were stamped twice and cut out so that they would have some dimension. I paper pieced the bottom with some Deja View's paper and also used it on the background. I added a spiral clip with some ribbon from Deja View's that coordinates with the paper. The white panel was run through my Cuttlebug with the Snowflakes folder, but I didn't go all the way down to the bottom, that way the sentiment wouldn't be all lumpy. I added some silver brads and it was done!! The colors besides Baja Breeze on this card are Riding Hood Red and Always Artichoke. That is it for me now, sorry I was MIA this weekend...those girls and a last minute shopping trip with my in-laws sure took a lot out of me!! Have a great day, and if I get a chance, I will show you some more stuff later today!!
