MFT Blog Hop Time!!

So, it is time for the midmonth blog hop for My Favorite Things and I am having a ton of fun with these new sets!! First things first though, if you are just now joining the hop, you need to head Kim's Blog to get started. If you are back now, you should have come from Jody's blog!!
Before we get to my cards, let's get all the info taken care of!! Be sure to check out the Weekly Challenge Thread, there is still time to get entered to win this week's sketch and favorite challenge. The deadline is tomorrow at 10amEST. But, never fear, if you don't make tomorrow's deadline, two new challenges will be posted on Thursday!! Just be sure to check out the My Favorite Things forum for all the details!!
Also, the new How'd They Do That? tutorial has already been posted, and it is a must see!! If you have been wondering about the Hot Fix applicator and crystals from MFT are used, THIS is the tutorial to see!! The crystal collections will be on sale from Wednesday to next Tuesday for 10% off as well!!
Okay, now onto my cards!! The first card uses our new I Need Coffee Flopsey. I colored him in using my Copics after stamping him on an MFT Perfect Panel with Memento Tuxedo Black. The DP is from the Kraft and Chocolate Chip Patterns packs. They are also the colors of my cardstock. All my ribbons and punches are from SU, and my brads and clips are from Creative Express. For the layout, I used a Mojo Monday sketch.
My next card uses the super cute new Rainy Day Friend set. It was made using Jen's SFYTT from this past Saturday. I used some Delicate Dots DSP, and paired it with Bashful Blue, So Saffron and Certainly Celery cardstock. She and her umbrella were cut out and added on after being paper pieced and colored with Copics(both stamped on an MFT Perfect Panel). I used some SU ribbons, and the clips and brads are from Creative Express. I used a white gel pen to highlight the frogs eyes, and her buttons.
Well, that is it for me now!! Your next stop on the hop is Frances' blog!! Have fun!!

These Boots Were Made For Splashing!!

Hey everyone, hope you are having a FABULOUS day!! I am in a huge hurry since I couldn't get into my blog since last night for some reason, so I am going to make this a super short post and maybe edit it tonight!! Today I have a MFTeaser of the new Rainy Day Friend set from My Favorite Things!! It will be released at 12EST on Wednesday, June 17th along with my new FAVORITE Flopsey!! Tonight at 10pmEST, we will be having our midmonth blog hop, so you won't want to miss out on all that fun either!!

My card today was made using Taylor's Cupcake Sketch from this past weekend. I also think it was her birthday, same day as Jared's in fact, so Happy Birthday Taylor!! I stamped my main image and umbrella on an MFT Perfect Panel and then colored it in with my Copics. The umbrella was cut out seperately, I even paper pieced the top and added some highlights with my Copics. The DP is from the Pink Pirouette DSP and the Bella Rose pack. My buttons are all from SU, and so are my ribbons. I did a ton of piercing, and added my sentiment to the bottom, which deviated from the sketch, but only a little. Well, that post wasn't short, lol!! I better get to work, I am subbing at the Post Office this whole week and am already having Jared withdrawals!! WAHHH!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!! See you back here tonight for the hop!!
