Thanks {SSSC232}

Hi there everyone! It's time for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch and boy does Karen have a good one for us this week! I hope you get the chance to play along.

My card today features many of my favorite things from My Favorite Things. I used four background stamps: Wood Plank, Writing Tablet, Gingham, and Linen, along with the beautiful Gerbera Daisy, Leaf-Filled Flourish, and Tag Talk Die-namics. The colors are Sweet Tooth, Grapesicle, and Steel Blue, a color combo I will DEFINITELY use again!

Here is my card:

And the finished inside:

MFT August Release Rewind - You've Got Mail

Hi everyone! It's Release Rewind time for the My Favorite Things August Release! I love the Release Rewind because it gives me the chance to work with a set that I might not have had a chance to use during the release. If you haven't seen the new release products yet you can find them in the MFT Boutique. Make sure you head on over to the MFT Blog for a link to each participating designer.

I didn't get a chance to use You've Got Mail during the release so that's what I've used on both of my cards today. I've paired this new set with the You've Got Mail Die-namics (this month's Free with $60) on the first card and then used just the stamp set on the second card. The colors I used on both cards are Pink Lemonade, Kraft, Chocolate Brown, and Primitive White.

Here's my first card. Isn't the envelope SO CUTE? I made it look like it was stuffed with hearts. I just love the sentiment. The background was stamped with the new Writing Tablet Background and the hearts were stamped with the Romantic Script Background.

I started my second card with this week's Deconstructed Sketch #164.  The pink "plaid" background and pattern on the Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose was made with the new Writing Tablet Background. I stamped it on the diagonal, rotated and stamped one more time on the diagonal. LOVE LOVE LOVE how it looks. The checkerboard on the Kraft circle was made in the same fashion with the Diagonal Stripes Background.
