My Favorite Things Hop and SHOP!!!

Hey everyone and welcome to this month's My Favorite Things Blog Hop and Shop....we are SUPER excited this month at MFT, and hope you are, too!! SOOOOO many yummy new sets, and don't even get me STARTED on the new Die-namics....um, YUMMY!!!

As always, tonight's hop started at Kim's Blog....if you are here now, you should have come from Barbara's FABULOUS Blog...she is SO TALENTED!!!!

Tonight I have a card to share with you using last month's Triple Scoop set -Clearly Sentimental About Success. The Triple Scoop is an awesome promotion that runs every month. All you need to do to qualify is to buy three full sized sets (or six smaller sets) and then add the Triple Scoop set to your cart - Voila! Free! This month's Triple Scoop set is Clearly Sentimental about Friendship...and you need it, you want it, you gotta have it...so best to just do the right thing and BUY BUY BUY!!! ;)

For my card tonight, I started by stamping my sentiment, one of my FAVORITES...who am I kidding, I love them all....on a piece of GP white card stock. To make it super thick, I cut out two extra layers using my Textile Rectangle Die-namics, so it would be more sturdy. :) I used some YUMMY paper from the Lilybee Designs- Picket Fence pad. I paired it with Cranberry Crisp(yes, I still have a TON), and Snow Cone. I then used the Stacking Stars Die-namics to cut out several different stars to add to my card both inside and out. My brads are from Michael's, and my ribbon is also from MFT.

For the inside, I used more of the same supplies, and some more of my stars. For my sentiment, I cut it apart, and stamped it as a layered sentiment, rather than all on the same line. I'm a rebel...;)

Well, that is it for me for now!! The next stop on the hop is the FABULOUS Arlene's Blog....she is SURE to have something breathtaking and AMAZING. Have fun, and don't forget somewhere, somebody has some blog candy so you better leave a comment!!!

I stamped my girl on a piece of X-Press it Blending card, and then colored her with Copics, and paper pieced her. She was then cut out, and layered with Grape Jelly and Sour Apple. My paper is from the LilyBee Designs Picket Fence pack. I used the Upsy Daisy Die-namics for my flowers, and the long oval from the Sweet Stack Die-namics for my sentiment. For my scallops, I used the Small Scalloped Die-namics. My ribbon is from MFT, and my brads are from Michael's.

Well, that is it for me for now!! Thanks for stopping by, and remember to head on over to Kim's blog for a full list of designer participating today!!
