Sneak Peek #5 (and other things!)

This is it! This is the last day of previews! Only HOURS are left until the My Favorite Things release of FOUR awesome new sets!

And if THAT wasn't enough to get you over there...
Kim, at MFT, has announced that she is offering 48 hours of FREE SHIPPING to anyone in the US of A, and discounted s/h to everyone else! Click here for more specific details.

I have loved seeing what everyone is doing with these sets. Make sure that you check out all of the other MFT designers websites and galleries! You can find them all here.

As you can see, of the 3 awesome new sets that I currently have (the fourth is on it's way!), this is my favorite. I know I've said this before, but I just love all of the little pieces that come in the sets to make a new scene every time! On this card, I used the fireplace, candle setting, fire, and stockings. I also used the snowflake and sentiment from Winter Blast on the background.

When I saw Jen del Muro's acetate card in the Dirty Dozen one month, I thought is was amazing! I have seen it a couple of times since then, and then the Dare to Get Dirty challenges have prompted me to create one of my own. There is a definite challenge, though, when it comes to taking a descent pic of it! This is the best that I could get, with the rain and ants wanting to crawl all over it and everything!!!

Everything is colored with Copic markers on the main image, except the fireplace, which was stamped and cut out of a Going Grey piece of CS. The acetate (or transparency, found at Walmart, or office supply stores) was stamped with White and Black Stazon. The Sky layer is behind the acetate (or inside the card - the sentiment could be written/stamped here), and the main image is in front. Notice my brads??? I clipped off the prongs, and adhered them with Mini Glue Dots!

Hope you enjoy this one, and all of the other previews! I've had so much fun making them! I'll be taking a break from MFT tomorrow, but I'll be back with a cute little MFT diddy on Thursday!

Make sure you come back tomorrow, because I have a BIG announcement that I've been dying to share for weeks now, and I'll finally be able to do so tomorrow! I'm sure that some of you {those of you wonderful souls that actually read all of my lengthy posts (wink)} thought that I'd forgotten all about it, since I hinted about it, what seems like FOREVER ago, but NO. And I don't think that any of you will be able to guess this time, either, though I wouldn't mind hearing any guesses you may have! Heehee!

Talk to you soon! Have a great evening!
