My Favorite Things Blog Hop!

Well, I hope you are enjoying our little My Favorite Things blog hop! If you are, you apparently hopped on over here from Shannan's blog, Pink Tulle with Feathers and Sequins. If not, you're missing out! Head on over to Kim's blog (The My Favorite Things Blog) to start where the startin's best! AND you never know what you'll find at the end of the hop! My Favorite Things release this month consists of 4 fantastic sets and I've had more fun playing with them! The one I'm featuring here is called Good Knight. I love how this card turned out and I couldn't wait to show it to you! I think I'm definitely past my missing mojo incedent from after Christmas (I can't stop making cards, plus it helps that Valentine's Day is one of the "funnest" holidays to create stuff for!). The two large hearts were cut from my Cricut machine, as I don't have any heart nestabilities (poor pitiful me). The red heart and the cocoa layer are sponged with their corresponding inks and then the cocoa layer also has some scoring from my Scor-Pal, creating a nice border. I stamped the castle and knight, colored and cut them out and popped them up on dimensionals, having the hearts as my focal panel "background". I then used one of several interchangeable sentiments from this super fun set to make the little banner. Anyway, it's a pretty simple card, but somehow it just came together nicely from the image I had for it in my head (I LOVE it when that happens!). It's hard to say goodbye, but I know you must move on down the road, so go see what Toni Armstrong of "Moved to the Mountains" has in store for you--I'm sure you won't be disappointed! I have several other samples to share with you, so ya'll come back now, 'ya hear!?!

My Favorite Things is having a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday, January 7th from 9-10 p.m. Eastern time. This month there are FOUR new sets being released including a Who's that Girl set that is Maid for You!

Head over to the MFT forum on www.splitcoaststampers.com to find out all the details and to find out how YOU can be the next MFT Guest Designer. We hope to see you there on Wednesday night! I'll be popping my head in for a little hello and maybe a share a few more peeks!!

SUSIE Q-TIP: As you make your projects, if you are like me, you'll find that "if you just had that certain embellishment" or a "turquoise button" rather than the one you have to settle for using. Keep a list for when this happens and write those things down. That way, the next time you go shopping for supplies, you are not just buying stuff you may never use--you know what you needed the last time and it may be needed again....but the next time, you'll have it.
