My First Card with MFT's!!!



I wasn't gonna do it....I kept seeing cute cards with the stamps from My Favorite Things....I tried not to cave...I really did.....to no avail!!! I CAVED BIG TIME! I ONLY bought two sets....see the control I have? I bought this new fall set and decided since so many people were starting their Christmas cards that I could certainly start some fall cards! I colored the image in with my Prisma's and Gamsol. I chalked the "dirt" and inked the edges. The DP is from EK Success. The polk-a-dot tape is from Heidi Swapp. Did you notice the buttons? The thread color was originally white...I colored it brown with my Copics! I also added some polka-a-dots!




Just an FYI...for those of you that have a Hobby Lobby anywhere...they are carrying the Copic Markers. They have them 25% off this week. I will go tomorrow and check their prices! Simone....you might have to check...maybe it will only cost ya half a kidney...LOL!!

FYI-My Hobby Lobby sells Copic Markers for $5.89. So, it is wise to get them when they are on sale, or with a 40% off coupon.

Another fabulous creation! I don't know what I'd do with copics if I had them yet. That probably a good thing.

That's a fabulous card. So warm color theme. And those buttons are cutest! (No Hobby Lobby around here, or Copics either - haven't ever even seen one.)

This is so cute!! And I've been trying to resist the urge for copic markers, but wow if they are at Hobby Lobby, and if they will take 40% off coupons for them... well this puts it in a whole different perspective! :-)

This looks awsome! I love this set and sadly I caved and got it along with a couple others and it hasn't yet arrived! You did such an wonderful job with this one, the coloring is great, and the color choice perfect for a fall card.

Oh you enabler...good thing Hobby Lobby is far from me, I have only been to it one time! LOL
I think I may have found a source for some of the markers though...*wink*

Your card is really awesome, Michele!

great card! I went to HL at lunch (Austin) and they are $5.89 each! I didn't do the math...but you may want to check out www.dickblick.com and www.carpediemstore.com (they actually have 40% off until Aug 3) not less than MTF, though! that's the best value anywhere as long as you can spend the $

Corie said...

BEAUTIFUL. But now you are going to make me cave too.

Julia Stainton said...

Love this card! I keep trying to not buy the MFT stamps and now I see this and my willpower just dwindled a little more.
