My Favorite Things Guest Designer Contest

Good Afternoon Everyone, Happy New Year!!!!! WOW 2012 has passed and gone, its amazing how fast time goes anymore :)

This is my very first post for the New Year, and is there a better way than start off the New Year than entering My Favorite Things Guest Designer Contest??? I saw this contest going on at MFT Blog and thought I would give it a shot. I love their products and have always been a HUGE fan and would love a chance to design with their  AMAZING design team!!!

For this challenge we were to use this AWESOME Sketch:

Isn't it great????  I just had a blast working with this layout!!! Hope you enjoy my creation using this fun layout!!!

Isn't she just as adorable as can be????  I just ADORE these images by My Favorite Things :) For my creation I used this darling image Pure Innocence Snow Day.  I was looking in my stash deciding on what image to use for this challenge and decided what is more perfect than this cutie for a January Challenge. I colored her with Copic Markers, added flocking to her boots and hat,then used my pearl pen to shimmer up her snowballs in her hand. Wish my camera captured that better because its such a cute effect.

I really wanted to create a little scene for this cutie so she is standing on a hill and there are snowballs all over the place. I used pom poms as my snowballs and just had to add a bit of glue.

This card couldn't be complete without finishing up the inside. I wanted to leave some space to write my own message. Here is the inside of the card!

I really hope you enjoyed my creation today, I have made a New Years resolution to use more of my favorite stamps like these ADORABLE images by My Favorite Things.

But before I let you go today, I had to just tell you what I saw new on the My Favorite Things website. They NOW have dyed matching buttons to match their card stock and ribbon PERFECTLY!!!! AHHHH I love when everything matches. Check out these AWESOME new buttons HERE!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, Wish me luck everyone, if I don't win this time you will continue to see more posts by me using adorable stamps....

Have a wonderful day everyone, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
