Fill Your Pumpkin To the Top



Can you believe it's already time to start thinking about Halloween projects? Today I have an early peek at a new set by My Favorite Things: Trick or Treat with Who's That Girl. I had a lot of fun working with this one. The coloring is all done with Prismacolor pencils. I popped up WTG's arm and candy bowl, as well as Flopsey (twice) for some extra dimension. Why is Flopsey green? It's Halloween! He can be any color you want!! I stamped one of the sentiments around the perimeter of the image to create a frame look.

Trick or Treat with Who's That Girl, some brand-new spooky ribbon, and an assortment of spooky crystals are all part of the August VIP Bundle, which is available in limited quantities TODAY ONLY. On the last Wednesday of each month, the VIP Bundle gives MFT fans a chance to order one of the next month's stamp sets, plus other new products a whole week early. Orders ship quickly, so chances are good that you'll have your things before the official release. If you want to, you're invited to post teasers along with the MFT design team during the release party. For more info on this month's contents and perks, go here HERE.

In other MFT news, the Bubble Bin has been updated for the week. Lots of good deals there, as always. And if you've ever wanted to know more about Smooch paints, pucker up and head on over to MFT's How'd They Do That forum, where Jessie will tell you all about them!

The blog and Facebook updates from CHA are beginning to pop up everywhere, while I sit at home wishing I were there. Anyone else?? Let's have a virtual Left-Behind Happy Hour.

Have a drink (or two) at 3:00
I''ll think of you, and you think of me!
