Hoot Hoot Hurray it's a Blog Hop!

Hoot! Hoot Hurray! Welcome to my blog are you ready for some blog hopping fun! If you have just stopped by my blog by chance you may want to go visit Kim's MFT blog so that you can start at the beginning of the blog hop.

My card today uses the new Stephanie Fizer "Owl for All Seasons" which will be released by MFT Stamps this Wednesday 7th January. Aren't these owls just the cutest!!!!!!! I could hardly wait for my set to arrive in my mail box when I found out about this set.

You have a few different options on what the owls can perch on in this set. I selected this fancy branch and also stamped in the small outline leaves. Again you have options on what you use to decorate your branches.

I created the corners of my card using the tag corner punch which I had to have due to my friend Tosh .... thanks Tosh for helping me spend money hehe! It's ok I help her spend her's sometimes too hehe!

The designer paper I used here actually has owls on it but they are hiding by the image (I did that on purpose). I changed the color of the paper too by sponging river rock SU Ink all over it.

Well it is time to leave my blog and continue on your blog hopping journey by hopping over to Holly's Blog. I hope you enjoy your blog hopping experience and thanks for stopping by.

My Favorite Things is having a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday, January 7th from 9-10 p.m. Eastern time. This month there are FOUR new sets being released including a Who's that Girl set that is Maid for You!

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.
