Well it's finally here! This month's VIP from My Favorite Things is being released tonight at 10 PM and we are having a blog hop to celebrate the moment. The hop started over on KIM'S BLOG. If that's where you began, then ya'll are officially hopping. If not, I'm certainly glad you're here, but you'll be missing out if you don't start at the beginning.

This month's Who's That Girl set is called Winter in the City. When I saw her coat, I knew I wanted to use this fun Houndstooth digi paper that I downloaded from the MFT website HERE to paper piece it. The rest is colored with a combination of Copics and Prismacolor Pencils. I LOVE doing that! I mostly used the Copics on the small areas other than the paper pieced ones. The Prisma pencils make filling in large spaces so easy. Next, the pink and black color scheme just fell into place (naturally--we're talking MFT here, people!).

I couldn't have a Winter in the City card without a few snowflakes! I've been on the hunt for the perfect snowflake die for a really long time and now I'm IN LOVE! The new Let it Snowflake Die-namics die fits the bill precisely! And the best part--it is included in the VIP kit.

Here's the scoop as to what all is included in this month's WTG VIP Kit (all for just $39.85):
Winter in the City WTG
Let it Snowflake Die-namics die
Pleated Ribbon 4 yards of luxurious, satin pleated ribbon. (2 yards white, 2 yards silver)
Noel sentiments mini set FREE - $9 value (this will be an EXCLUSIVE set to the VIP. It will not be offered again!)

And don't forget about the new à la modes releasing at the same time:
Candy Cane Kisses
Miss You a Latte

Next on the hop is Sherrie. I'm sure she has something fabulous to share! See ya'll back here soon!

SUSIE Q-TIP: Sometimes you need extra time for making your cards and projects but you find yourself with lots of (idle) time (like an hour and 45 minutes) at your daughter's soccer practice. It IS possible to make most of your card in the car while you dote on your little athlete. In Lilesland, the M.C.U. is always ready to roll. I AM the Mobile Craft Unit. Let's ride.
