MFT Blog Hop & Shop

The Store is OPEN! Well, it's always open, but All the new July release My Favorite Things goodies are now up and ready for purchase! Before you go, or maybe after you shop, be sure to hop along to get one more look at all the new products being offered this month. It's time for the DT's Shop & Hop!

Hopefull you just came from Jen's blog, if not, be sure to start back at Kim's blog. You'll want to leave comments along the way-there's a secret blog that's giving away a $15 gift voucher to be used in the MFT store!


I'm just tickled to share my project with you all. I had so much fun making it, but it was even more fun to give it to my BFF's son. His eyes lit up when he saw his custom frame-complete with his name, and number! I painted a wooden frame I got from Micheal's for $1 with chocolate chip craft ink. While that was drying I used my new fave Banner Day die-namics die and Banner Day alphabet to make a custom banner with his name. I then colored up the sweet, little Football Boy from the Pure Innocence line with copics. Here's a close up. Check out the football! I stamped the image on cork, cut it out and sponged on some walnut distress ink and colored in the lines with a white gel pen for some real-life accents.

I completed the wooden frame with the Framed Greetings lable and die-namics die. I decided to add in a few of the sentiments from the PI Football player set and hand cut my flag with the team name and year stamped with the Banner Day Alphabet.


Up next is the oh-so-talented Susie! have fun and thanks for all your kind words this week. It's been a great first release for me.
