Celebrate MFT Day!!

It is the 20th of the month, so it is Celebrate My Favorite Things Day. We have changed things a little, and here are the details!!

Each month, between five and eight stampers will be invited to the Celebrate MFT Blog Hop – and the participants will be a secret until the day of the party! To see who’s been asked to hop, you’ll have to join us on Monday, July 20th! Joanne will kick off the blog hop that morning, and then you can hop all around to visit our fabulously talented friends!!

Of course, you’re all invited to join us in the Celebration! Simply add your sample to the “Celebrate MFT” gallery on Splitcoast by using the keyword (CelebrateMFT0709). The final stop on the blog hop will lead over to the Celebrate MFT gallery! And don’t forget to play along, because your entry might get you invited to the following month’s hop.
Customers will be selected based on entries to the weekly My Favorite Challenge, MFT Sketch Challenge, as well as the monthly One Click Challenge, Ambassador’s Challenge and Celebrate MFT participants!
Here is a card I put together using the new Feelin Fruity set from MFT, as well as the Stamp A Sweet Impression sketch from this past week. I started by stamping my cherries twice, and coloring them with Copics. I then cut out just the boy cherry and popped him up. They were both covered with Crystal Effects. The colors on my card are Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, and Basic Black. I used some retired Rockabilly DSP as well. My ribbon is from MFT, except the Kiwi which is from SU. I used Spiral Clips and Brads that I got at Joann's. My sentiment was cut out with my ribbon slide dies from Spellbinders.
Well, as you are reading this, I am probably at the dentist or recovering from my surgery. Hopefully all went well!! See you soon! Thanks for stopping by!!

Little Paper Shop-Jena Rain

I was up late(probably nerves) and saw this sketch on my friend Jessica's blog, so I decided I would play long(it is for the Little Paper Shop challenge). It was a fabulous sketch, drawn up by one of my favorite sketch artists, Cindy!! I used the super cute digital stamp, Jena Rain. I printed her out, heat set her, and then colored her with my Copics. She was cut out and embossed using my Cuttlebug and Oval Nesties. The colors are Rose Red, Bashful Blue, and Certainly Celery. The DP is from the retired Cutie Pie DSP. I added spiral clips with SU Grosgrain ribbons on them in all my CS colors. The sentiment was punched out with all SU punches. The sentiment is from the Take Time set.
Well, that is it for me now!! Thanks for stopping by!!
