Hoppin' Down the MFT Blog Hop Trail!

If you're just jumpin' into the blog hop on my site then you're gonna wanna take a trip back to the beginning by visiting Kim's Blog first for so you don't miss any of the absolutely fantastic creations made by the My Favorite Things design teams!


I have 2 words to describe these little owls.... TOTAL CUTENESS!! I love them! For the first card I used Basic Grey 6x6 paper from "Offbeat" to the background as well as paper piecing the little owls. I added button brads to the card (these are sooooo cool) and a mixed up ribbon embellishment to top it off.


For the second card I cut the shape with Nestabilities. I cut the top layer of the card, then the bottom layer, scored the top at 1/2" and glued it to the bottom. All the layer on the card were cut with different sizes of the same die. The striped paper is from the new Imaginisce Twitterpated line... it's really cute & springy! I added flowers from Petaloo and the new glittery twill tape ribbon from My Favorite Things

The third project may look familiar.... it's almost the same project I featured in my last post EXCEPT I used the new owl set and a different paper from the Basic Grey Bittersweet line. I paper pieced the owls with the paper scraps.


Now I'll send you on to Natalie's Blog... I'm sure she has something pretty amazing to show you! Have fun on the blog hop and don't miss out on the giveaway at the end!! Oh yeah.... don't miss out on the release party tonight either.... it's sure to be lots of fun PLUS we'll have another Guest Designer challenge! It's a great way to win all the new releases for February!
