MFT Wednesday Stamp Club

It's the first Wednesday of the month, and that always means a sketch challenge for MFT's Wednesday Stamp Club. I've used a darling Pure Innocence stamp today, Presents for You, and paired her with Mitten Weather patterned paper by Cosmo Cricket and a strip of crocheted lace from MFT.

Check out Kim's blog at 11am today for the entire list of MFT gals playing along with today's sketch, and then be sure to come and play along. When you finish your sketch card, upload to SCS using keyword: MFTWSC12012010 for your chance at $15 to spend as you like at the My Favorite Things store.

Happy Wednesday!

Miss You a Latte {SFYTT}

It's hard to believe that this is the last SFYTT for November already...where has the month gone?! It actually feels like January here in western WI with temps in the teens and 20's this week, so I thought I'd warm up with You Suit Me, one of the latest releases from The Cat's Pajamas. I've also used one of the new CutUps dies, Big Scallop, and a sentiment from MFT's Miss You a Latte.

Let's see how the rest of the SFYTT team has interpreted this week's sketch...always a feast for the eyes!

MFT WSC: Celebrate Thanksgiving!

Today's WSC challenge is to create something you're thankful for in honor of Thanksgiving, or simply something Thanksgiving themed, such as cards, party favors or table decorations.

I've made a cute apron card using a la modes, What's Cooking?, and it fits just perfectly over a bottle of wine. Those of us who are not entertaining need the perfect hostess gift Thursday, right?! So, why not whip up one of these, presented with a bottle of your hostess' favorite wine...or, your favorite wine! Let's face it, she'll be slaving away as you're sipping the wine watching her, so why not buy YOUR favorite, huh?!

Be sure to check out Kim's blog at 11am EST for the entire lineup of WSC participants, and then upload your Thanksgiving themed creation at SCS using keyword: MFTWSC11242010 for your chance at $15 MFT smackeroos!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

TCP Tuesday 135 Blog Hop!

We've got a great TCP Tuesday challenge for you today--to use any of the CutUps dies to make your own embellishments. How could I NOT take advantage of the new CutUps snowflake die released today?! I've used the snowflake on my pennant banner as a layer beneath the letters spelling out 'SANTA' using TCP's Babydoll Alphabet along with the newly released set, Define Good. How can you not love a set titled, Define Good, it just makes me giggle!

Here are a few fun details about my Santa Board:
  • The library pockets are embellished with various CutUps border dies, including: Icing, Inside Pinking, Apron, Pinking and Big Pinking.
  • The top of each border is embellished with the new Big Scallop Border CutUps die.
  • The background of each pennant is a photocopied page of a discarded dictionary where the definition for 'good' is found.
  • The frame measures 14x18 with a thin layer of cork behind the glass.
  • The alphabet used on each pocket is TCP's Coolvetica.
  • The patterned paper is Cosmo Cricket Oh Joy!.
Here are a few detail shots...

Now, let's not forget about the blog hop. You may have stopped here via Jen's blog, and if not, you might want to start back there since she's our TCP Tuesday hostess this week. Or, you can hop right along to Leigh's blog for more TCP goodness!

Thanks for stopping,

MFT WSC: The Sound of Music!

Today's Wednesday Stamp Club challenge is to pick out something from the theme of The Sound of Music and go with it. I picked a few of my favorite things from the lyrics below, including Pure Innocence Dog & Boy Snow Adorable.
"Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad"
And on top of all that...I found do-a-deer, and the hills are alive (with the sound of music)! Be sure to check out Kim's blog at 11am EST for the whole list of MFT gals playing along, and finally, use keyword: MFTWSC11172010 when uploading to SCS for your chance at $15 in MFT cash!


TCP Tuesday 135: You Warm My Heart

Today is TCP Tuesday, and Toni is our hostess with a great inspiration piece, so be sure to check it out here. That's not all--it's also day 2 of The Cat's Pajamas Sneaky Peek week, and although I don't have an official sneaky peek for you today, I am using one of the upcoming sets for my card called Like You a Latte. Remember, all new stamp sets and CutUps dies will be available November 23rd (one short week from today!). Check out Alma's blog for all of the sneaky peeks this week!

Just a little reminder about all the great CutUps dies available at TCP, including the Pennant and Inside Pinking dies that I've used on my card today to create my wintry scene. I added bits of "snow" to the Inside Pinking die to hopefully resemble icicles hanging from the banner created with the pennants.

Have a great day!

A Sparkle {SFYTT}

This week’s sketch is sponsored by a fabulous company, SPARKLE CREATIONS! Not only have they sponsored our sketch , but they're giving away two of their adorable stamps to a lucky SFYTT participant: Holiday Emily and Rin with Snowman images. Speaking of Sparkle's cute images, check out Christmas Tree Ruby...

Ruby is colored with Copics and a gold Spica glitter pen for extra "sparkle". I added a computer generated banner strip because it would appear to me that Ruby is humming some holiday tunes as she trims her very traditional Christmas tree. I can't wait to see more Sparkle creations, so let's get on with "the list"!

Speaking of "lists", I have to admit that I haven't even begun Christmas shopping, or even thought about it until I woke up to snow on the ground this morning. Snowy weather always puts me in the mood for a little Fa-la-la-la-la!
