FOUR Days Until the MFT May Release!

Hello!  It's time for the My Favorite Things May Release Countdown and we have a FULL week of fantastic new stamps and Die-namics to show you.   AND we have some fun prizes for you too, so be sure to hop on over to the MFT Blog to see how you can win some MFT goodies this week.

All of these new products will be available for purchase on May 13th @ 10 PM Eastern.

I have a cute sneak peek of the new Fishbowl Die-namics and the sentiment set, You're Fin-tastic.  Super cute!!

How sweet are these little goldfish??  I loved putting this one together.  I started by cutting out the fish in Orange Fizz and Tangy Orange Card Stock and then layered all the pieces together to create the darker fins.  I cut the fish out again in Black Licorice Card Stock so I could fill in the eyes.  I used Sour Apple and Gumdrop Green for the plant life and then stamped the sentiment in Black Licorice Ink along the top of the fishbowl.  For a little accent, I added a trio of Grout Gray Buttons over the background, which I stamped in Grout Gray Ink with the new Grid Background stamp.  Fun!

Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for a complete list of designers playing along in today's countdown AND find out how you can win some MFT goodies!
