June My Favorite Things HOP!!

Hey everyone and welcome to this month's My Favorite Things Blog Hop and Shop!! Everything is available in the store now...so I'm pretty sure you are reading this AFTER you have shopped, lol!! This month's release was full of GORGEOUS and FUN sets, and some of them most AWESOME Die-namics EVER!! Kim and her crew work so hard to bring you some of the most fresh and fun products, and I am THRILLED to get to work with them and show them off here!! Speaking of Kim, if you didn't start there, better head on back to HER BLOG, it's the beginning!! Don't forget to leave some love in the form of comments along the way...you never know where the Blog Candy is hiding!!!

What better to show off on a hop, than my favorite bunny and yours, FLOPSEY!! This month, Sunbathing Flopsey is chilling out, and soaking up some sun....sounds like a plan to me!! This set sells for $9, and is full of cute and clever little sayings, two of which I am showing today!! I started by stamping Flopsey on an X-Press It blending card, and then I colored him/her with my Copics. I used Fossil cardstock to create my sand, and then layered the whole image with Pink Lemonade, Banana Split, and Orange Fizz cardstock. I used the Sunshine Die-namics to create my sun with some Echo Park Sweet Summertime paper. I used two different ribbons I bought a while back from MFT, and some spiral clips from Creative Express. My sentiment was cut out using part of the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics....expect to see this A LOT!! My DP, most of which I covered up(I hate it when I do that), was cut out using the Ric Rac Die-namics.

For the inside of my card, I used the AWESOME new Rainbow Die-namics. The only thing I DON'T like about this die is the fact that EVERY TIME I see it, I start singing the Kermit the Frog version of the Rainbow Connection...the lovers, the dreamers, and MEEEEEEEE.....sorry. I also used the Flat Bottom Clouds Die-namics, and the other piece of the sun I cut out earlier.

Well, that is it for me for now! Hope you enjoyed what I created, and are having a great time on the hop!! Next stop, JOANNE'S BLOG.....now THAT chick is SUPER talented!! Hugs, and have fun !!

For my card, I used the Enjoy the Ride set. I stamped her on an X-Press It Blending card. I then colored her with Copics, and layered her with Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, and Jellybean Green. I followed this week's Sweet Sunday sketch, as well. My DP is from the October Afternoon Detours pack. I used the new Simply Scallops Large Die-namics, as well as some white MFT ribbon. The twine is from MFT, as well. My sentiment was cut out using the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics.
