So Much MFT to Celebrate!

Happy Thursday! It's the 20th of the month, so it's Celebrate MFT Day! It's also time for another My Favorite Challenge and another Sketch Challenge! That's a lot of MFT to celebrate! :)

Joanne is this week's hostess for the My Favorite Challenge, which is to use a set that hasn't been inked yet. It's hard to believe I have any MFT sets that haven't seen ink, but I did find Window Shopping hiding among the rest of my sets. I'm glad I finally showed it some love, because I had a lot of fun with this card! :)

This image makes me smile. I can see myself, face pressed against the window, longing for those shoes I just can't afford... does anyone else feel my pain? ;) I colored with Copics, and I paper pieced her dress. I DO love this October Afternoon paper -- I can't seem to get enough of it!

I made this Cupcake Flopsey card for this week's MFT Sketch challenge. The paper is from American Crafts. I colored and cut out Flopsey, then I mounted the image on dimensionals. I popped up the cupcake frosting, too. This card is already in the mail to a very special friend whose birthday was yesterday! It's going to be late -- sorry! :)

Now, if this isn't enough MFT fun for you yet, I have a NEW challenge to share with you! Beginning this month, we have a MFT Kit Challenge! There has been a lot of excitement about the kits, so we want to see what everyone can do with them! You can get some great ideas for getting the most out of the MFT Kits in Jody's How'd They Do That? tutorial.

Well, my kids are all back to school today. I have big plans for my three hours of solitude each day -- stamping, laundry, stamping, clean the house, stamping... ;) Actually, I know the time will be filled with all the things that life throws my way, but I am hoping to get a little more ink on my fingers!

Thanks so much for stopping by today -- have a fantastic day!

Awesome, Christina! I need to get that window shopping one inky, too. You've inspired me to do so sooner than later. AND the Crispy Garlic Chicken was wonderful -- the whole family enjoyed it! I've even ordered a used copy of that cookbook from Amazon. See? You enable me in all sorts of ways! Damask you! (but you know I love ya ;) )
