MFT Color Challenge #50

I just loved this month's MFT release! I got several of the sets :) I couldn't resist this adorable monster set! So when I got my package I pulled this one out right away. That cute font of "hello" is a Silhouette font called Jaws & Claws which was the perfect one to go along with these little monsters. Although I didn't have the exact colors for the challenge, I used the closest ones I had. Here are the colors for this month's challenge:


And here's the card I created:

12 Kits of Occasion July 2016

What a fun Christmas in July kit we had this month from Marybeth! There were fun gold papers and nice patterns, there were cute images and wonderful die cut words. I'm so happy to now have 4 Christmas cards made! Not sure what was going on with the coloring in my photos, I promise the cards looks better in person ;) Don't forget to go check out the blogs of my fellow 12 kittens, too!

12 Kits of Occasions June 2016

A birthday to Die(cut) for....how cute is the name of this month's kit?! Joyce is too creative, and I just loved everything she sent...and I am always in need of a birthday card stash, so I now have 4 more to add, thanks, Joyce! I didn't have any of the supplies that she sent along, so it was fun to work with some new goodies :)

There was a little boo-boo on this card, but nothing a wood veneer star couldn't cover up! The star wasn't included in the kit but everything else you see was :)

MFT Sketch Challenge #284

Unfortunately I missed another week for last week's sketch challenge, but I'm back today for this week's! I used the Fall Florals that I had been wanting ever since Laurie W. used it with the glad press n' seal, but it was always sold out! Luckily I got to pick it up while I was at the store on our trip to FL. And I used the press n' seal technique! I also used PTI's Clearly Creative Cardstock to emboss the sentiment so that I would be able to have part of it over the flowers. I think it turned out pretty for my first time playing with this flower set, but I know I could use some practice!

Oh so cute :) I also loved all the fun colors this month, thanks for the awesome kit, Sharron!

MFT Sketch Challenge #282

I have definitely missed out on a few weeks of sketch challenges! Time to get back into the saddle after vacation. Especially after coming home with new goodies that I bought from the MFT store (you heard that right, there is a MFT store in my former hometown of Eustis, FL!) during vacation and also a package with the last release goodies I bought! I have many new stamps to play with :) Here is one of the new sets I got at the store to go along with this week's sketch:

12 Kits of Occasions April 2016

A coffee themed kit? Thanks, Tracey! I love coffee, and the colors you chose were so rich! I also loved all the different sayings and images to choose from, especially those doughnuts and that adorable bear!! I'm embarrassed that I was only able to make 3 this month, but I've been working on some invitations to a baby shower (just finished and mailed out today!). I'll share those soon. I still have a good bit of supplies left from the kit, so I can case!
