February à la modes!

Good Monday morning, everyone! Happy Valentine's Day! :) It's mid-month already (can you believe it?), so that means it's time for new à la modes from My Favorite Things! This sweet line of stamps has captured my heart, and it appears it has captured yours, too! MFT's only line of cling rubber stamps, the à la modes are easy to work with and stamp like a dream!

We'll have à la modes previews today and tomorrow, followed by the VIP Hop Tomorrow (Tuesday) night at 10:00 pm EST. So, are you ready for today's à la modes card? It features à la modes - Wishing You Luck. It's perfect for St. Patrick's Day or anytime you want to wish good luck to a friend.


I had picked up this Reminisce Celtic Knot paper during a shopping trip with Lisa -- I knew it would come in handy! I colored the image with Copics. I used the Die-namics Simply Scallops die to cut the scallops from the Black Licorice card stock. The ribbon is some bias tape I purchased at Jo-Ann's -- I wrinkled it and roughed up the edges, then I topped it with some black hemp twine.


I had some fun layering the inside of the card. Even with the sentiment inside, there's plenty of room to write a personal message.


Click over to Kim's Blog to see the lineup of MFT designers who have à la modes previews for you today. Then be sure to stop back tomorrow to see the other à la modes set!

Thanks for stopping by today -- have a great day!
