My Favorite Things Stamps...Exciting News...So Excited I could Burst!!!

Hello stamp' friends! Well, today I finally get to share some SUPER exciting news with you all!!! OMGosh...I am SO excited I could burst!!!! I was asked to join the My Favorite Things Stamps Design Team...Whoo hoo, Yippe, Yahooo!!!! I still can't believe it!!!  So, it just so happened that one day I  come home for lunch and the phone rang and I thought it must be a salesperson...one of those guys wanting to know if I need the ducts cleaned...I almost didn't answer it. Well, thank goodness I did and was I ever surprised to hear Kim and Jody, from MFT,  on the phone. I was totally shocked when they asked if I would like to join the MFT family. Well, of course I jumped at the chance!!! I have been a long time MFT fan and I just LOOOVE all things MFT!  I LOVE all the stamps, Die-namics and fabulous products like the gorgeous My Favorite felt and ribbons etc. I can hardly believe there is a cute little MFT tub watermark on my cards now....SO SO exciting!!!

So I made this card especially for today's exciting announcement! I used some of my all time favourite papers BasicGrey Hopskotch 6x6 pad and teamed them up with this super cute Pure Innocence Girl from the set PI Blowing Bubbles.  I coloured the PI Girl with my Copics and paper pieced her top and skirt. I stamped a few of the bubbles around her with the bubble stamp that comes in the set. I inked around the image with Tumbled Glass Distress ink and added Stickles and Vivia Decor Transparent Gloss-Pen to the bubbles. If you visit my blog regularly, then you know I LOVE  lots of flowers on my cards and I have fallen in love with the various MFT flower Die-namics. This way, I can make my own customised flowers that co-ordinate perfectly with my card. On this card I have made my flowers from My Favorite Felt and canvas material with the Botanical Beauty Flower Die-namics and the Die-namics Flower Trio and Leaf set. I have added BG Hopscotch brads to the centres of some of the flowers and a BG Hopscotch epoxy brad to the centre of one flower. The sweet sentiment is from the PI Blowing Bubbles set I stamped it on Kraft cardstock and cut it out with the Chat Bubble Die-namics and used Joanne B's "Die-namics cut and re-cut" technique to make the bubble fit the text size....I love doing this. I also used the Die-namics Woodgrain Fence and to finish it off a little sprinkling of pink gems.

Here is the inside...I stamped the PI girl again in Desert Sand Memento ink and I used the the Die-namics Framed Greetings and Stamp Set. 

I am SO excited to be joining such a wonderful, friendly and talented group of ladies; that is the MFT DT! This is truly a dream come true!! I know I am going to have SO much fun on the MFT DT helping to showcase all the gorgeous MFT stamps and Die-namics!  Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek at my very first MFT DT card!!!

 Have a Stampin' Great Day!!!
Hugs,
