friends warm the coldest of days; MFT November Release Countdown


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.

We just keep rolling with the November Release Countdown! So many great products, all about winter, but somehow they are warm and cozy and just make me smile! Like this cutie from Birdie Brown called, Warmest Wishes.

There is a coordinating set of dies, Die-namics Warmest Wishes. I will never get sick of having dies to cut these images out! My rheumatoid arthritic hands and wrists are very thankful to not have to fussy cut!

After die cutting and then stamping Warmest Wishes in Hybrid Black Licorice ink, I colored her with colored pencils. Pretty bright, but I don't have a girl to dress up, so I live vicariously. :)

For the background I cut layers from a new set of dies called, Die-namics Square Frames. A great set of three dies that also gives you the inside piece. I die cut the Pink Lemonade cardstock with Die-namics Square Frames and kept the inside. I repeated the same steps with Sweet Tooth cardstock. On the inner pink panel, I stamped the snow image from Warmest Wishes with Sweet Tooth Ink.

The outer white frame was adhered to a Razzle Berry cardstock card base. Then, I adhered the inner piece. It made lining things up so much easier that way!

Keeping it short and sweet today. I am presenting at a Christmas kick off celebration for women at our church today. I am excited to be sharing about creating holiday memories and keeping your mommy/grandma/aunt/woman sanity! I will be sharing my workshop on my blog with you all soon. I am looking forward to uplifting and encouraging all the women and you!

And its another weekend of swim meets. The little man has been doing amazing. He hit all personal best times last weekend in all five events and took 4th place for his age group! For a kiddo that has barely been swimming competitively for a year, he is showing that hard work and determination pay off!

Well, head on over to the MFT Blog, you know the drill. All the good stuff is there!

thanks for stopping by!
