Thank You...Some Exciting News 74

Mona Pendleton | Monday, July 30, 2012 @ 10:01 PM | , , ,

Hi there! I have some really exciting news to share with you today! About a month ago, I received a phone call from both Kim Van der Sanden / Owner of My Favorite Things and Jody Morrow / MFT DT Coordinator inviting me to join the MFT DT!!! I was at a loss for words and thinking back at the conversation, surely I sounded like a babbling idiot!!! Words can not even describe how excited and surprised I was that day and still am!!! If you are not familiar with My Favorite Things you are in for a real crafty treat! MFT products may be purchased in their on-line store ~ click HERE ~ as well as brick & mortar stores, on-line retail stores BOTH in the United States and the United Kingdom as well! My Favorite Things offers a wide variety of fresh, fun and distinctive clear stamps as well as MANY other products such as: over 200 Die-namics dies, color coordinating Buttons, Felt, Cardstock, Ribbon, etc... My Favorite Things has a MONTHLY release that is preceded with 7 days of Teasers full of DT inspiration, a MONTHLY VIP Kit, a WEEKLY sketch challenge, a MONTHLY Guest DT contest, MONTHLY Creative Chat, and SO much more!!!
Today I am sharing a thank you card I made showing my appreciation and gratitude to Kim, Jody and all the MFT DT gals for welcoming me to the MFT DT family with open arms :) I combined the Vintage Typewriter image from the Die-namics Just My Type Die & Stamp Set along with a few other dies to create this card.
I finished off the card with a glitter kissed rose that was made using a die from the Die-namics Mini Royal Roses set which was layered on top of a MFT Natural Button and a pennant die cut that was made using a die from the Die-namics First Place Award Ribbon Die & Stamp Set.
For sketch inspiration, I played along with the current retro sketches sketch challenge:
Thanks so much for visiting my little spot in blogosphere and sharing in my crafty excitement! I hope you visit the MFT Blog for some AMAZING inspiration from the DT and see what some of the DT is Chatting about! ;)
For a little retail therapy, be sure to visit the MFT store! I will be back tomorrow at Midnight Eastern to kick off the August MFT Teaser Time. Hope to see you then!

Be Sweet :)
