MFT Blog Hop and Shop!!

Hey Everyone, and welcome to this month's My Favorite Things Blog Hop and Shop!!! I know you are just as excited about this month's release as we are, so let's get to it!! Tonight's hop started at Kim's blog...so better head there if that's not where you started!! If you are here now, you should have come from Eva Diva's Blog!! Be sure to leave comments along the way...you never know where the CANDY could be hidden!!!

For tonight, I used the new Hello, Sunshine set, illustrated by Claire Keay. I am in LOVE with this new line, so I jumped at the chance to use her again. She was stamped on an X-Press It Blending card, and then colored with Copics, and paper pieced. I layered her with Black Licorice, and I also used Red Hot and Berrylicious. Fun Colors! My DP is from Basic Grey. I used the new Simply Scallops Medium Die-namics....so fun, along with some old MFT ribbon.

For the inside, I used more of the same supplies, and another sentiment from the set.

Well, that is it for me for now! Thanks for stopping by, and have fun on the hop!! Next stop, Michele Boyer!

Do It Anyway....

Tonight we are on our FINAL night of teaser's at My Favorite Things before our big Blog Hop and Shop tomorrow night at 10pmEST....so FUN!! I for one am DYING over this month's release, and I can tell by your reactions that you all are, too. It just makes it so much....MORE...know what I mean? Anywho, tonight we are showing you two new sets: Clearly Sentimental About Success, and Fiesta Girl(March's VIP set). I don't usually go for the sentiment only cards, but with sentiments like these, how could you not?

For my card, I started by stamping my sentiment with Memento Rich Cocoa on a piece of GP white cardstock. I then cut it out using my Framed Greeting Die-namics. I then layered it on top of some Pink Pirouette and Hot Fudge Cardstock. Do you SEE that GORGEOUS new Doily Die-namic, the High Tea Doily......OMGOSH!! I am in LOVE with it!!

The Doily comes with it's on pop out tool, which you are gonna want...just sayin'.....oiy vey, that's a lot of holes!!! It was cut out of a piece of Bella Rose DP from SU. I then layered it on top of more do the DP, and cardstock. My ribbon was from MFT, and my brads are from Michael's.

On the inside, I used another Die-namic, the Dainty Doily Border. I also used my FAVORITE saying from this set....that pretty much sums up my life. I tend to be afraid of everything, change and I don't get along, and this saying SPEAKS to me.

Well, that is it for me for now!! Here is all the NEED TO KNOW info!!
