MFT March Blog Hop
Here we are on the first Wednesday of the month already! That means it's time for an MFT blog hop!!! Yaaay, I love these things! If you haven't come here from Jessie's blog, backtrack to the very beginning, which is at Kim's blog. Hop on down the line and I'll see you back here in a few.
Tonight at 9pm, My Favorite Things will be hosting a New Release Cocktail Party in the MFT Member Company Forum on Splitcoast. Please join us! You'll see loads of fun MFTeasers of the FIVE new sets and have a chance to win prizes. Plus you find out how you could become MFT's next guest designer. Hope you can make it!
This darling little girl in her pajamas is from a set called Night, Night Ellie. There's lots for me to love about this adorable set. First, the idea for this set came from Jen del Muro and it's named after her adorable daughter, Ellie. Second, it's a charity set, so for the next six months, $2 from each set sold will benefit St. Jude's Children's Hospital. Third, I have a 5-year-old daughter who looks just like this! (Well, sort of ...) She loves having sleepovers, so I thought this set would make a perfect slumber party invitation. It's hard to see, but the celery background is stamped with white stars, and the Cameo Coral strip is stamped repeatedly with "sweet dreams." Her pajamas are paper-pieced and shaded with Prismacolors, and the rest is colored with Copic markers. I hand-wrote the "you're invited" sentiment. I haven't done a "no dp" card in a while - this was fun! [Please pardon my sagging flower "ribbon" ... I've fixed 'er up now, but a new pic will have to wait until daylight. Why didn't I see that before? Grrrr...]
Next is a teaser of Hooga Booga, a collection of the most adorable little characters! Take a look at just one of them:
Her outstretched arms looked just perfect for holding a string of hearts. All I did was stamp and trim the hearts, adhere them with foam dots, and then hand-draw the black string. I gave her some sleeves and shoes, too! Again, I paper-pieced the outfit and colored everything else with either Copic markers or a blender pen and SU re-inkers.
Hope you're enjoying the blog hop. Next stop is Carole!
