MFTWSC216 Birthday Donuts

Hi all!  Happy Sunday!  Who is counting down to the Oscars?  I am, but more so to the Red Carpet.  I rarely see any of the nominated films, unless it's an animated feature, but I do enjoy the fashion and watching the show.

Today I have my weekly MFTWSC card and I created it for an order for a birthday card.  A friend's sister has a birthday this week and she's a Lakers fan, so I opted to use purple and yellow as the color combo.

 To achieve this week's sketch, I used my Snow Drift die to cut some Vibrant Violet card stock from Gina K.  I then embossed it with the Cuttlebug Polka Dots folder.  I adhered that to a piece of Cryogen.  My donut was cut from Kraft and I inked up the edges Cognac Palette ink to make it look like it was cooked.  The icing is Lemon Drop from MFT.    The sentiment is from ala mode Birthday Girl.
Inside I stamped "Donut you know you're the best!" in Grape Jelly and then "Hope your day is sprinkled with fun" in Lemon Drop.  I added in a smaller donut to finish it off.

MFTWSC215 Sprinkled with Love

Hi all!  Happy long weekend Monday!  It's another cold day here in NJ and we are supposed to get more snow tonight.  My daughter was wishing for spring last week and I told her that she should expect winter through February, but come March, she can be "done" with winter.   Last year, when March rolled around, I was very much done with winter.  March is my cut off point - regardless of where I'm living - NJ or WI.  Until then, I'll deal with the cold and snow.  I'd be more concerned of warm temperatures!

Today I have my weekly MFTWSC card.  This week's sketch is very clean and simple.  It worked perfectly with the new donut dies from MFT.  I chose a Sweet Blush (PTI) card base and layered both the front and inside with a piece of white card stock.  On the front, I stamped just the sprinkles from the coordinating Donuts & Sprinkles stamp set in Pink Lemonade.  My donut was inspired by one of my daughter's favorites -- strawberry with sprinkles.

You Rock

Hi all!  Happy Sunday!  It's a frigid one here in NJ.  It's a good day for hibernating!  I needed to make a card for my son for Valentine's Day and I was itching to play with my new MFT goodies.  Love how this came out.

This was a very clean card, but lots of POP to it!  I inked up my Equalizer stencil with three different greens - Spearmint, Limeade and Limelight.  I didn't mask off or anything - just allowed the colors to overlap.  The headphones are cut from Black Licorice and Limelight card stocks.  I POPPED them up on dimensionals and stamped You Rock from Keep on Rockin' in Steel Grey directly onto the equalizer bars.   Simple works for 7 year old boys -- he came up with his card this morning, asking his sister if she got the "you rock" part.

MFTWSC214 Paris is Always.....

Hi all!  A very quick drive-by post with my MFTWSC card!

It's a good thing I can type quickly!  My computer just threw a massive fit, couldn't find my picture, blogger locked up - UGH!  So Paris is sounding like a really good idea right now!  I kept this very true to the sketch -- Echo Park Be Mine paper, SU Basic Grey, MFT Grout Gray and Bubblegum Pink, the Eiffel Tower and a quote from Audrey Hepburn.

I've Been Spotted!!!

Happy Saturday!  I meant to post this yesterday, but the day got away from me.  I was very excited to see my Level Up card included in the MFT Card Challenges You've Been Spotted post.  {As in squeal type excitement!}  I made this card for my husband's birthday, which was yesterday, and I couldn't wait to give it to him so I could share that I was in the spotted post! LOL!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a great Saturday!
