I See.... an MFT Release Blog Hop and SHOP!!

Happy My Favorite Things Release Day!! This is one of my most FAVORITE days of the month, and I know it is for you, as well!! As always, tonight's hop started at the GORGEOUS and AMAZING, Kim's blog!! If you didn't get started there, head on back!!

For my card tonight, I couldn't resist using this ADORABLE new à la mode I Spy...isn't she a PEACH!! I stamped her on X-Press It Blending card, and then colored her with my Copics. Her dress was paper pieced with some Basic Grey Off Beat paper. I have been going through and organizing a TON since my move, and have SO many unused paper packs it is ridiculous!!! I found this ADORABLE pack in the bunch, and wanted to play with it! I used the Scalloped Ribbon Die-namics to cut out the orange paper strip..that I then pretty much covered up, but hey! The Small Simply Scalloped Die-namics was used, as well. To make her magnifying glass look like glass, I added some Crystal Effects. My flower is the new Rolled Retro Flower Die-namics being released tonight. I really tried to use it with actual paper, but resorted to my felt.....why do these flowers pick on me??lol! My ribbon and twine are both from MFT, and my brads are all from Michael's. I used SU punches for my sentiment. My cardstock colors are Orange Fizz, Sno Cone, and Black Licorice.
My card was also made for Jodi Collin's Dare To Get Dirty challenge.

For the inside, I used more of the same supplies, and another saying from the set...I really do LOVE this paper, and the new a la modes...SO CUTE!!

Well, that is enough jibber jabber out of me!! Next stop on tonight's hop is the SUPER talented, funny, amazing, crazy, wild, awesome, sweet, supportive, and basically just all around ROCKIN Wendy Bond!!!

For my card tonight, I tried to keep it kinda simple....because I TRULY love this set. I love when they put WTG in a circle, it's just awesome!! Anywho, she was stamped on X-Press It blending card, and then both colored with Copics, and paper pieced. I used some October Afternoon Fly A Kite paper, which I paired with More Mustard(SU), Jellybean Green, and Hot Fudge. My ribbon is from the Ribbon Carousel. Tonight is a new Ribbon Carousel Crew challenge, and you will PROBABLY see this card over there, lol. This week's challenge was ANYTHING goes...which made it super easy for me! The Walnut Seam Binding was purchased at the Ribbon Carousel store, and is just YUMMY and gorgeous!!

My card is also for one of today's AWESOME Dare To Get Dirty challenges, being hosted by Iwona(Chupa)....not going to tell you what, when, where or why the challenge is/am/ are, but I will tell you where to look!! Fan club members can only see this forum, so if you aren't one, become one!! SCS is one of the GREATEST stamping sites in the WORLD, and the small fee they charge to be a member is well worth it!

For the inside of my card, I used a little more paper, and another sentiment from the set. It's so pretty, I couldn't NOT use it. Again, keeping it simple....but hey, sometimes less is more.

Well, that is it for me for today! Be sure to head to Kim's for a list of designers participating in today's teasers. Thanks for stopping by!
