October MFT Hop & Shop!

Hello there! Welcome to my stop on the MFT Release Hop! If you came here by way of Barbara's Blog, you're right on track! If you haven't seen all of the projects so far, you'll want to start at the beginning with Kim's Blog!

My card features the set Clearly Sentimental about Books. It was last month's Triple Scoop set, but now it's available on its own! If you love books like I do, this set is a must-have! :)


I stamped a silhouette image from the set I {Heart} Books behind the sentiment. I just love this sentiment -- it's from one of my favorite authors! :) The paper is from October Afternoon's Report Card line. I used the Die-namics Notebook Edge Die on the top of the image panel.


You can find all of the new MFT products right HERE, right now! Next I'll send you on to see what Frances has created for you -- I'm sure it's something fantastic! Thanks so much for hopping by!

Happy shopping!
Christina

The notebook edge is the perfect die to use with the book sentiments. I have both and plan on doing a similiar card to yours. Casing is the nicest form of flattery!!!
