It's an MFT VIP Blog Hop!

Well, it's Berry nice to see ya'll here again, only this time we are hoppin' on the MFT VIP train! Yes, it's already VIP time and we are celebrating with a blog hop to show off the new upcoming Who's That Girl set ya'll are going to need from My Favorite Things. If you just popped in here to see how I was doing, thanks Berry much, but just for grins, sit back, relax and start at the beginning of the hop over on Kim's blog to reap the best harvest of eye candy. What's an MFT VIP you ask? It is a ONE DAY ONLY product (which will be available tonight at 10 PM EST through July 21st at 11:59 PM EST). What's so cool about that? Ya'll have the opportunity to purchase the WTG set TWO WEEKS early so you can start playing with it before its actual release date! BERRY SWEET!

So let's talk about my card, here, ok? I never use blue. I take that back, I love using light blue and I can't seem to put down the aqua blue (I almost swapped it out for the aqua several times in the making of this one. Then I said, "Susan, just put down the aqua."). It's just this regular everyday beautiful blue that I never go for. Why? You tell me. So I forced myself to go for it this time and I really like the quiet touches of true-blue. Do ya'll? Anyway, I colored the non-paper-pieced areas of the WTG stamp, Who's That Harvest Girl? with my Prismacolor Pencils and Odorless Mineral Spirits (I had so much fun with the last one I did!). I added some MFT Ribbon and Buttons from the Summer and Earth Girl Collections that I LOVE! This WTG set is my new favorite. I've decided that this card sort of reminds me of a Better Homes and Gardens summer magazine cover!

Ok, thanks Berry Much for stopping by, but now it's time to head on over to the coloring queen, Sherrie Siemens' blog!! Have fun!

SUSIE Q-TIP: This little stamp set includes different fruits you can stamp "into" the basket. If you don't line them up just right and happen to stamp a little too far down into the basket with the fruit, just paper piece the basket and no one will ever know. Don't ask me how I know this. I don't want to talk about it. I can't anyway, I'm losing my voice. It's Mono. :(
