Happy Thoughts …. Let’s Hop & Shop!


It’s release day over on MFT Stamps, which means it is time to join the MFT Stamps Design Team for another "Blog Hop and Shop!".

The hop started at Kim's (MFT Lady) blog so if you didn’t start from there you may want to head over there now so that you can start at the beginning of the hop. You don't want to miss anything and believe me there is lots to see!

Tonight I'm featuring this month's Triple Scoop set – Happy Thoughts. The triple scoop set is one that you can't buy, you earn it for free with the purchase of 3 full sized sets (1 full size set is equal to two $9 sets). It will be available for purchase next month.

In addition to the Triple Scoop Set, you could also earn the Cherry On Top Reward. It's for the most loyal MFT fans. When you purchase 7 full-sized stamp sets ($15.95 or $17.95 price point), on top of earning the Triple Scoop set of the month, you'll also choose ANY set on the site for FREE.

For my first card I have to share with you all today I have combined the Happy Thoughts set with another of the new released sets ….. Flapper Doodles in the Kitchen. I am sure you will love the Happy Thoughts set, it is such a useful set and can be used for so many different occasions …. here I have used the sentiment Happy Times which I have stamped onto the Rounded Banner Trio Die.



Here is the inside of my card using yet another of the sentiments from the Happy Thoughts set.


For my second card I tried my hand at a CAS card using one of the FTL sketches (FTL109). I always have such a hard time doing clean & simple!

For this card I used the Be Happy sentiment from the set and also used the Flower Trio Die-namic die and the Jumbo Scallop Die-namic die.
