Let's Do Lunch

Make sure that you don't miss THIS POST for your chance to win your own MFT stamp set, and more!!! Remember, you can enter without having to submit a card - that only increases your chances of winning - it's not mandatory! How much do you LOVE this set already?!? Not because of my card, but for the images alone! This, admittedly, is not my best watercoloring job, but I was in a hurry one night this week when my hubby was bugging (in his most lovingly way, of course!) me to leave for the Y. I didn't want to scrap the whole thing, though, so I covered up (I mean made some key design decisions) a couple of boo boos by creating jewelry for the ladies! The one in the plum has a silver chain belt, and the one in the pomegranate has a silver bracelet. (She had a necklace, too, but that was covered up by the awning!) I was trying to use a skin tone Prismacolor Marker for the speed of it, and it bled the Stazon in spots. Oh, well, you can't really tell now.

Anywho, this is Day 3 of My Favorite Things previews, and this set is called Meet Me at the Cafe. I LOOOVVVEE this set! Like I said yesterday, it's probably one of my faves. Here's the scoop... The set includes the awning and main image, of course, as well as EIGHT sentiments in this fabo font, the corner image and retro wine container you see on my card, a poodle, "cafe" sign, and 4 other items that can be placed on the table - cake, present, tall wine bottle, and slice of cake (with separate candle to add on if you wish!).

Now, about the card, I used my Silver Stardust pen to highlight around the plum layer, because I thought it need some extra punch. Also, I got this CC from the new IN Color chart (that I only recently discovered - I'm so out of the SU! loop, it's sad!), and it's definitely NOT one that I would have chosen on my own, but I thought that it looked kind of "Frenchie". What do you think? It's Olive, Pomegranate, Pale Plum, and Bravo Burgundy. Oh, and I used some River Rock for the background.

Speaking of SU!, I just placed my "must-place-an-order-to-remain-a-demo" order last night, and I must say that I'm really excited to get my package! I got a couple of punches, more paper, and some sets, too. Love getting "happy mail"! Which reminds me, I just got my very own Clip-it-Up, and I LOOOOVVVVEEE it, too!!! I'll take some pix later of it. I feel like a retail store - it's awesome! Definitely a must-have for all of your MFT sets you're going to get! ;)

Well, I think that about wraps this one up. Make sure that you check out the links to all of the other MFT Design Team (<-- here) members' blogs and galleries. And remember that you can get ALL of these sets (5 of them) on Oct. 1st for $65!!! I'll be back soon with more things for you to check out! Also, there are some SUPER exciting things coming down the pike, so you won't want to miss a day!!! TRUST ME! Sorry again for the super long post! {On second thought, no I'm not! You're free to skip what you want!!! (wink)} xox,
