My Favorite Things Stamps For The New Year!

Well, last night was the big release for My Favorite Things. Don't you just LOVE the new sets? And what do you think about the digital paper? Did you try it? I need to play with mine some more and follow Jody's tutorials/challenge. What's YOUR favorite from My Favorite Things? Who all went to the release party? You see, I wouldn't know because every time I tried to get on, my computer (NOT my favorite thing right now) would lose its wireless signal--AAACCCCKKK!! So annoying!
(I'm still having trouble with it, so if you've emailed me, but haven't gotten a response yet, that's why. I'll catch up soon with all that. I promise!) So I was only able to pop in here and there and only sneaked a couple of cards in for you to see before I said, 'the heck with it', and went to bed (and read some more Breaking Dawn---oooh girls!!). So here they are including the ones you might have missed!
Anyway, tomorrow (Friday) I'm going out of town on my annual scrapbooking retreat to Pine Cove in Tyler, Tx. I'll be autoposting at least once, possibly twice before I get back on Sunday. I couldn't miss a Sketch For You To Try (Jen would hurt me)! Off to make that card!
I LOVE the way this Flopsey turned out and the OWLS--I my goodness! Aren't they just the cutest!! They come all in a row to be able to put them on the little sticks or a branch, but I am debating as to whether or not to cut them apart to be able to play with them even more. What do ya'll think?
SUSIE Q-TIP: Instead of coloring an image in, try coloring around the outside of it to highlight it using a fun and unexpected color. This works especially well with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS (see how on my purple/brown owl card).
