MFT Superhero Blog Hop



Hi everyone! Welcome to the next stop on the My Favorite Things blog hop! Did you come here from Frances's blog? If so, you're right on track. If not, and you just happened to stop by, then I highly recommend going back to the beginning, with Kim, aka The MFT Lady. I'll see you back here in a few.

So yesterday, I promised something wild and crazy, and now I'm back to deliver. Is this loud or what? These bright colors and bold patterns are sooooo not my normal style, but I love how this card turned out! I used the new Ben Paper Dolls set, which includes the adorable Ben, plus a bunch of fun costumes for Ben to dress up in. The superhero cape was really callin' my name. See, I have an awesome 8-year-old who's been having some behavior problems for the past couple of weeks, and I want him to know that at the end of the day, no matter what, he's still my hero. I hope he likes it!

Before I send you to your next stop, I want to invite you to join MFT at its New Release Cocktail Party tonight (April 1) from 9-10 pm ET. You can win prizes, see bunches of MFTeasers of the four new sets, plus find out how YOU can become MFT's next Guest Designer! Hope to see you there!

Next stop on the hop is the fabulous and always entertaining Carole! I'm sure she has something amazing cooked up!
