Got Cookies!

MFT-GotCookies-wm

Hi everyone,

I have another MFTeaser’s to share with you all today in readiness of the MFT Stamps new release, this coming Tuesday 1st March.

Today the MFT Design team are featuring the “Pure Innocence” range, and this month there will be five brand new Pure Innocence sets to be released … you are going to love them!!!!!! The PI’s to be released include: PI Daffodil; PI Warm Fuzzies; PI One Sweet Chick; PI Girl Scout and PI –Boy Scout.

For my card I used the PI Girl Scout stamp set. Seeing I live in Australia, I decided to make my PI  into a Girl Guide which is the equivalent to Girl Scouts. I love that this stamp set will work for Guiding in various different countries.

I used the Die-namics Simply Scallops die along the edge of my thin panel on the left side of my card.

Here is the inside of my card. I stamps the PI girl again in the right hand corner of my card and also stamped one of the sentiments from the set. For those of you who may not know, Juliette Low was the founder of Girl Scouts of USA after working as a Girl Guide Leader in Scotland & London in 1911.
