It's Day 2 of Teasers from My Favorite Things

Well, we are gearing up for another fabulous release coming this Tuesday night from My Favorite Things. It will be a good night for me to stay in and play with ya'll at the release party, as we are looking to have freezing temps, sleet and ice coming in that night here in North Texas (and it's supposed to be 74 degrees today!). No wonder everyone in town is sick including me!

So let's get to it so I can take a cold pill and go lay down! I've used two stamp sets from My Favorite Things here, but the new one ya'll are going to have a fit over is the new Twisted Foursome. It's another one of those hysterical collections of phrases and sentiments that say how you really feel and then tell it like it is. (For some reason, I now have Cyndi Lauper's True Colors song floating in my head.)



The other set I used is one of those cute Flapper Doodle sets called Cheers to a New Year. I used a few Die-namics dies as well--the Rolled Flower and Flower Trio (currently out of stock-sorry!). BUT the NEW one is that fabby, perfect, where-have-you-been-all-my-life scallop border called Simply Scallops. What's another word for perfect, because that's what it is but I already called it that?

I'm admittedly not a huge drinker. Oh yes, I had my day, but these days, I only like an occasional margarita on the rocks, or an icy beer with just the right hamburger. However, over the holidays, a bottle of wine was left at our house, just enough for two glasses--one for me and one for Eric. After the girls went to bed one night recently, we relaxed on the couch with our glasses and it was SO NICE!! So when I saw these sentiments from the Twisted Foursome set, they reminded me of that night (and that I need to buy another bottle of wine)!

Be sure and check out Kim's blog for a link list of all the design team girls who are showing off some new MFT for ya'll HERE!

SUSIE Q-TIP: When placing a longer sentiment stamp on your acrylic block, it's easiest just to lay the stamp ink side down on your work surface (but before you ink it, of course) and then place the block right on top. This keeps the stamp's shape and will keep the sentiment straight. Sometimes when you put a skinny stamp onto the block yourself, it gets wonky and curves as you stick it on there.
