MFTeaser: Spring Is In the Air



This coming Wednesday, February 3, My Favorite Things will be bringing its biggest release to date! Of course, you'll see familiar favorites, such as Who's That Girl and Flopsey. We'll have three brand-new Pure Innocence cuties, as well as a new illustrator you're sure to love, and the third installment in the annual twisted series!

Can't wait? Let's get started! Today is the first of five days of MFTeasers, all leading up to the big day. In the spotlight first are a new Flopsey set and Love Birds, previously part of an MFT kit, but now available on its own.

I've used Love Birds to create a fun, Spring card. I'm watching snow fall outside my window as I type this, and believe me, I'm much rather be hearing birds chirp! I stamped on one of MFT's Cream Perfect Paper Panels - love the warm, buttery color - and colored with Copics and Prismacolor pencils. The designer papers are both from October Afternoon (Report Card and Farm Fresh). Here's a look at the finished inside:



Do you know that with each release, MFT has a guest designer contest? This month Frances and Cindy are hosting, and the challenge is to create something Spring-themed. Give it a whirl and you could be our guest next month! You'll find all the details HERE.

Want more peeks? Each day around 11 am EST, today through Wednesday, tune in to the MFT blog, where Kim will be posting a list of all the MFT designers who will be showing teasers. Enjoy!

Thanks for visiting!
