MFT Release Countdown: Thanks


Welcome to this month's Release Countdown with My Favorite Things! You will find complete details each day on the MFT Blog, including how you can win prizes and full reveals of featured products.

Happy Mother's Day!!!

Today I am featuring lots of pretty new products. So often I have a plan or some cool technique I want to share, but today, I just played with pretty things that make me smile.

I started by stamping my Primitive White cardstock with Pinstripe Background using Spearmint ink. Mint makes me smile. Then I die cut vellum, more smiling, with Die-namics Gerbera Daisy, which is being released this month! I created the daisy flower center with gold foil paper. Smile. And because I cannot put down the gold, I added a leaf from Die-namics Layered Leaves and sequins from Die-namics Sequins. Its a mile-wide smile at this point.


The frames were created with Die-namics Rectangle Frames and Steel Grey cardstock. I stamped them with Wood Plank Background. Yes, wood grain anything makes me smile. And finally, the sentiment is from Sea Life. Awesome font. Perfect card size. Big smile.

Head on over to the MFT Blog to see what everyone has been up to. All the flowers being used today should bring a lot of happiness to your Mother's Day!

thanks for stopping by!

P.S. Super proud bragging mom alert! The little man rocked his meet yesterday! He swam his personal bests in the Free, Fly, and Back. Not to mention, he swam a fantastic 100 IM, for his very first time! Its wonderful to have him see how his hard work pays off! And that he can compete at this new level of swimming! I can't believe that he has only been swimming since October...what a kid!
