Wahhhooo, It's the Weekly Wow!!!

(There is a card in this post, keep scrolling down)
I swear, I am so lame some time...but seriously, I LOVE THIS STUFF!! I mean seriously, NOTHING makes me happier then being able to tell you about a special, or sale, so that you can get the most bang for your stamping buck!! This week's WOW is(and yes, I stole this from the boss, I am too lazy to write my own, and who can say it better than Kim herself, right!!):

It’s that time again! Something to look forward to after a relaxing weekend, the MFT Weekly WOW! This week, we’ve got something quite special. Monday thru Friday, if you purchase both the Spring and Winter Ribbon Bundles, you’ll receive the coordinating digi papers packs for FREE!
What’s in the Ribbon Bundles? 5 yards each of 5 sumptuous ribbons, for a total of 25 yards!
What if I already have the Spring and Winter digi papers? Then choose two you don’t have! The coupon code will work just the same!
How do I get the digi paper packs? Place the two digi packs into your shopping cart along with the ribbon bundles, and then at checkout, enter the code MFTRIBBONWOW to receive the discount.
What do I do then? Log back into your account after the payment is completed, and you’ll see your paper packs download link!
How do I use digi papers? Jody has done a very thorough
how-to, so you’ll be a pro after going through her tutorial!
The coupon code will only work on purchases of ribbon bundles, the discount is not valid for other purchases.

WAHOO...let me tell you, YOU WON'T be disappointed in the digi papers, and you KNOW how I feel about ribbon!! Anywho, this week, we are releasing TWO new sets over at My Favorite Things. The first set is the Paper Doll Sayings set that goes along with the SUPER CUTE Stephanie Fizer Paper Dolls set. I keep seeing all these ADORABLE cards using the bear costume from that set, so you know I had to go for it!! I stamped the bear and the girl separately, colored just her face(that would peek out of the hole) and the whole bear outfit with my SU markers, and my Copic markers. Someone asked me if these blend well, heck no, they are a HOT mess together, BUT, I only have one set...and not a durn thing to color skin with, so a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!! I cut just her face out(just so you know, I didn't eyeball this, I stamped the bear over the girl so that the face was perfectly centered-I am no where near that good-Stephanie HUSH, hehehe) of one and the entire bear out of the other. Next, I used my Cuttlebug and Oval Nesties to cut out a Gina K. white layer, Real Red, and then Tempting Turquoise...WOW!!! It has been a LONG time since THAT color got used, but my paper made me do it!! The DP, which is GORGEOUS, is part of the Stephanie Fizer Summer Digital Paper Pack(see, use the special up there to get me, you won't regret it)!! For the rest of the card, I used some Real Red striped ribbon from SU, along with their tag punches and large oval punch for my sentiment, some Michael's Bride Confetti flowers, Bold Brights brads, and my Swiss Dots folder. The white layer was embossed with the Swiss dots, by far my FAV of all the folders. For the little turquoise circles under the brads, I used my handheld 1/4circle punch...not ideal, but I keep the "receptacle" empty, punch my circles, then empty it and viola!!
Okay, seriously, I LOVE THIS CARD, LOL!! It is so bright and cheerful..makes me long for summer!! That is it for me now...thanks for stopping by, have a GREAT day!!
