Hello, Friend

Good morning!  I'm so grateful you stopped by and I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I have a super fun sketch for you from MFT, which just happens to be the current Guest Designer Challenge.  Here is your chance to win over $200 in MFT product and play along with the MFT team during the month of August.  You should hop on over to the MFT Forum and check out all the details!  You have until August 6th to enter as many cards as you'd like.

Here is the sketch:

I used Pure Innocence Being Cute Is What I Do for my card:

I adore this stamp set - it's actually the very first MFT stamp set I purchased many moons ago and I just can't get over those adorable pig-tails.  I cut out one of the Rounded Banner STAX Die-namics for the image panel and stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black.  She's colored with Copic markers and I paper pieced her clothing with some On the Sunny Side 6x6 papers from My Mind's Eye.  I added the sentiment from PI Freckles on a Mini Tabs Foursome Die-namics die and zigzag stitched it to the panel.  The sketch was perfect for a Fishtail Banner STAX Die-namics, which I added in yellow patterned paper, and then balanced the card with some Banana Split Ribbon and Banana Split Buttons.

I kept the inside of my card fairly simple, only adding some patterned papers and a sentiment, stamped on a Sentiment Strips Die-namics die.

I used these items on my card, which can be found in the MFT Boutique:

stamps: pi being cute is what i do (mft), pi freckles (mft)
paper: wild cherry (mft), kraft (mft), choice buttercream (te), on the sunny side 6x6 (my mind's eye)
