I’m Busy Now …..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 am featuring the latest sentiments in the Twisted line … Twisted Foursome, for those of you who like a sentiment which is a little tongue in cheek you are going to like the latest addition to this range.

I love this “I’m Busy Now. Can I ignore you later” sentiment I used on the front of my card. When I think of it, this is probably what happens when I get involved in creating a card … you forget all about what is around you LOL! MFT-FlopseySlidingPopUp2-wm

I love construction style cards, so I decided to create a Sliding Pop-Up Card which was one of the recent tutorials over on SCS. I also used the new Flopsey set, this one is called Smooth Sailing …. isn’t he just adorable!!!!!!

My card also uses three MFT Die-namic dies including two brand new dies being released today. These dies are Die-namics Flat Bottom Cloud; Die-namics Catch The Wave and Die-namics Sunshine die.

If you look closely at my card you can see I used the “catch the waves die at the bottom of my card under the sentiment which you only see when you open the card as well as in front of Flopsey’s sailing boat. The sentiment on the flap that opens out is also from the Twisted Foursome set. In case you can’t read it on my photo of my card above it reads “So much to do, so few people to do it for me”. I definitely would love to get someone else to do all the boring stuff, like housework so I can do all the fun stuff like stamping. Or in Flopsey’s case sailing!


Here is another photo of my card so you can see some of the details a little better.

One more photo, this time a side on one so you can see how this card works. I really loved making this card, so much so I have made a few more that you will see on my blog soon.

Well that is about it from me for today, now it is time to hop on over to the blog of the marvellously talented Barbara Anders and see what awesome creation she has to share with you today.
