Hopping Around The Block!

mft-vacation-wm

Happy Wednesday everyone and welcome to my blog. It time to join the MFT Stamps “Sweet Sixteen” for another "Hop Around the Block"

Now if you didn't hop onto my blog from Jessie Rone’s blog then you might want to hop back to Kim's (MFT Lady) blog so that you can start at the beginning of the hop. You don't want to miss anything and there is lots to see!

I have a number of items to share with you today so this will be a fairly long post. All my projects today use the new stamp sets that are to be release by MFT Stamps store after the release party which starts tonight at 8pm EST over on the MFT Member Forum of SCS. BTW there are 4 new sets which will be released tonight.

Ok now onto my projects for today, first up I used the new Catch Some Rays set to create this card. I used the Mojo92 sketch challenge for the layout of my card. I also paper pieced the girls bikini using the same designer paper as that in the back panel.

For my 2nd project today I used the new Purrfect Treats Label set … this is perfect to create gifts for our furry friends but also great to use for people. As you can see in my pic I added chocolates to my jar to give as a gift to a cat lover.

You can see a close up of my lid here.

purrfect-card-wmI also wanted to create a card using this set so grabbed my sizzix movers & shakers die to create my base card. The cat is perfect to go inside the window of this card.

Now it is time to head on over to the amazing Amy's Blog so you can continue on your Hop Around The Block. Enjoy the rest of the hop and thanks for dropping by!

Hi Frances! Your cards are beutifullll! I just love the window you creeated for the kitty, so clever! ps, I was hopping at work today and again, IE would not open your blog...I was asking around and they said it was just a bad connection and voila...no problem at home tonight. Thanks for the inspiration. :)
