Forgotten Stamp Friday-Week 16

One often wonders how they can be late for their own challenge, but when you are me....anything is possible!! LOL!! Now seriously, I am NOT late..since there are no time restrictions, but I DID plan on having this posted last night. You know what they say, happens while you are busy making plans.
With that said, WELCOME MY LOVELIES to this week's Forgotten Stamp Friday challenge!! Not familiar with this challenge...well, you should be!! Every week, I challenge myself, and all of you, to make a card using your poor, lonely, dusty, unused, forgotten stamps. I feel guilty with the sheer VOLUME of stamps that I own in comparison to what I ACTUALLY use, so this challenge is one that helps me to ease my guilt a little. There are NO rules, just that you a)PLAY ALONG, b) use a stamp that is either unused or owned and un-inked for 6 months c) come back and add yourself to the linky thingy so I can see what you've done, and d) be sure if you upload to SCS, that you use the keyword FSF16...that way I can find you!! There is no time limit, this is just a jumping off point for you to get into those old stamp sets, and show them some love.

For my card today, I decided to use one of my FAVORITE a la mode sets, Groovy Girl. She was used the first month that she was released, and the poor thing has been sitting on my shelf crying since. Can't we all just get along???;) I stamped her on an X-Press It Blending Card, and then colored her spunky little butt with my Copics. My DP is from the Basic Grey Lime Rickey collection. I paired it with Wild Cherry, Orange Fizz, and Blue Raspberry. I used some Maraschino twine, which I bought from the MFT store. I used some white felt from MFT to make my clouds using the Cloud Die-namics. I also used part of the Sweet Stack Die-namics, and Simply Scalloped Die-namics, as well.

For the inside, I used more of the same, but I decided to use the Say What Die-namics for my sentiment. I also cut out a peace sign, so it could hang over the DP.....that was a lesson in patience right there, let me tell ya.

Before I let you run away, I wanted to give you another head's up on a sale at MFT, which ends, don't walk!!

Spring Cleaning Sale
We've been spring cleaning here at MFT! We found a huge number of products that were limited edition, retired, or are retiring, and we have filled a big box full of our finds.
From Wednesday, March 23 though Friday, March 25, we are having a Spring Cleaning Sale. When you place ANY order that requires shipping, you will receive a freebie with your order. It could be a full spool of ribbon, a patterned paper pack, or any other item out of our Spring Cleaning Sale box. It'll be a surprise... a little extra reason to look forward to receiving your order. You have three days to take advantage of this fun sale, so get your wish list together and go shop HERE in the MFT Boutique.
*The Spring Cleaning Sale freebie is ONLY good for orders that require shipping. If your order is ONLY for digital products, you will NOT receive a freebie. We're sorry, but the shipping department cannot take requests for the freebie.
