Take a Hike!

Hope you are all enjoying or enjoyed your weekend ... depending on where in the world you live. For me it is already Sunday night so the weekend is just about over ... I know for many of you, you are just getting up to enjoy your Sunday.

MFT is releasing 5 new sets on Wednesday 6th August so today is the start of my MFTeasers I have to share with you. I used two of the new sets " Nature Calls" & " What's Your Sign" to create me card for this week's MFT sketch challenge which you will find over on the MFT member forums of SCS.

I stamped the hiker on my white card and used my circle nestabilities to create all the circle layers. I also added some paper piercing around the outside edge of the white circle.

It may be hard to tell by the photo but I stamped the single sign randomly over my river rock card using river rock SU ink and then stamped three of the sentiments from "What's your Sign" they say " This Way, Over There & Over Here". After stamping and sponging the edges of my card I then used the new Forest Branches Cuttlebug Embossing Folder to give texture to my card ... this was also sponged with river rock ink.

My Favorite Things is having a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday, August 6 from 9-11 p.m. Eastern time. This month there are FIVE new sets being released and some great new ribbon added to the store.

*The Girl Who Wants It All special for the The Aug Collection, which is one of each set being released, is $65.

Head over to the MFT forum on SCS to find out all the details and to find out how YOU can be the next MFT Guest Designer. We hope to see you there on Wednesday night.
