Welcome to the Hop!!

Hello and welcome again to another My Favorite Things Release Party Blog Hop!! As always, the hop started at our FABULOUS leader's blog, so if you haven't been there, go to Kim's Blog to get started. If you are back, you should have come from the VERY talented, Jody Morrow's blog!!

Before I get to my projects, here are some details you may want to know!! First of all, the first 50 orders at the release tomorrow night will receive a Memento Dew Drop as a free gift. Also, the winner of the One Click Collection challenge will be announced at the release party, and I can't WAIT to see who won!! Be sure to be there for the release party chat so you can see who won along with me!! On Thursday, the new My Favorite Challenge and Sketch Challenge will be posted too, and you KNOW I love a good challenge!! The chat starts at 8pm EST, so be there or be square!

For today, I have two projects to share with you. The first uses the new Amanda Baird set, Puttin' On The Glitz. I started by stamping her on an MFT Perfect Panel. I then colored her in using my Copic markers. The cardstock colors are Regal Rose and Kiwi Kiss. I used some DP from the Walk in The Park DSP pack. The brads and ribbons are all from SU, as well as the circle punches used to make the sentiment panel. The Spiral clips are from Creative Express. I did a ton of piercing on this one as well, I know you aren't shocked.
For my next project I used the new Purrfect Treats. It is another label set that is part of our Perfect Packaging line. The DP I used is from the new Razzleberry Lemonade DSP pack from SU. I used Pumpkin Pie, Taken With Teal, and Rich Razzleberry CS. The ribbons I used are from SU. The kitty was stamped and colored separately and then added on. I filled the jar with little toy mice I found at Walmart for around $2. I don't know if cat's are like how my old dog used to be, but if you give them all the toys, they lose all the toys. I thought this would be a super cute way to store the extras for when you need them!!
Well, that is it for me for now. It is time to continue on your way, so the next stop on the hop is Frances' Blog. I am sure she has something FABULOUS for you!! Thanks for stopping by!! Have fun!!

A VERY Difficult SFYTT!!

When I saw this weekends Sketch For You To Try on Jen's Blog, I was a little skeerrred. Seriously, she comes up with AMAZING sketches, but this one had me stumped. Then I finally got it....and boy do I LOVE this card now!! I decided to use my friend Jessica's(pinkgirl76) new set from The Greeting Farm. I showed a card using it on here yesterday, but since she is my girl and I do LOVE this set, I decided to use it again!! Here is some more info about this set and how you can win it!!
Want to WIN this set? Leave a comment on Jessica's blog telling her what you like best about the set or what the first thing that came to your mind was when you saw it! She'd love to hear from you!

Want another chance to win? Multiple entries will be accepted for this Blog Candy contest! All you have to do is post to your own blog about Jessica's brand new set through The Greeting Farm, come back to Jessica's blog and leave her another comment letting her know you did, and you'll get another entry into the contest!

There will be lots of ways to WIN THIS SET throughout the week, both on Jessica's blog and The Greeting Farm, so good luck and have a whimsical day!

Sounds good right??? I thought so too!! Okay, now for my card!! I started by stamping the butterflies from this set twice. I colored all four with my Copic markers. I then cut out two of them, and the other two I punched out using a 1 1/4in circle punch. I then layered them with Regal Rose for the pink one, Pumpkin Pie for the orange, and Chocolate Chip. To give the butterflies dimension, I took the two I cut out and glued them to the circles, but just in the center so the wings could move. The DP is from the SU Sweet Always pack and my ribbon is from SU. The brads are from Creative Express. I did a bunch of piercing and it was done!! Super cute huh!! Don't you love that cute little butterfly and the GORGEOUS sentiment, I sure do!!
Well, that is it for me now, thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

MFTeaser-Catch Some Rays

Here is a card I made using the new Catch Some Rays set being released by My Favorite Things tomorrow night at 10:00 EST. For my card, I started by stamping my Who's That Girl image on an MFT perfect panel. I then colored it in with my Copics. The drink was stamped and cut out separately. I also added some Crystal Effects to make it shiny. For her bathing suit, I paper pieced it with some of the MFT Summer DP. Speaking of Paper Piecing, that is this week's My Favorite Challenge, which you STILL have time to enter, so be sure to get your entry in by 10AMEST to qualify. Just upload it to the SCS gallery using the keyword MFTMFC5. My red ribbon is from the Summer Ribbon Nest. The white is from SU. As always, the brads and spiral clips are all from Creative Express. They were purchased at Hobby Lobby. I did a ton of piercing on this one as well. The colors of CS I used are Regal Rose, Tempting Turquoise, and Real Red.
Well, that is it for me now!! Be sure to come back tonight for the MFT Blog hop!! Hope to see you then!! And don't forget, you still have time to enter the One Click Collection challenge...the deadline is tonight at 10pm EST!! Good luck!!
