MFT Greatest Hits

Sorry I have been so quiet here for the past week. I have been working on my very last Dirty Dozen Gallery! Those six months went so fast and I have enjoyed every minute of it! It has been such an honor to be a "Dirty Girl"!

If you are like me you have stamp sets in your stash that you really LOVE but that haven't seen any ink lately! Today some the MFT design team is pulling some of those stamps and sharing their projects. If you would like to see all the MFT Greatest Hits go to Kim's blog a 11:00 am to see the list of designers playing today.

So I pulled out my WTG set "Hanging With My Peeps". I like this set because the sentiments make it perfect for so many occasions! She is colored with copics and her jacket and dress are paper pieced. I used Prism Pencils for the grass.

The sketch is Jen's SFYTT and the DP is my new October Afternoon paper. My use of kraft is inspired by Joanne! I love how it looks on her cards. I added machine stitching, a little distress ink to the edges, lace, ribbon, a button, and a sentiment from the set.

Here is the inside of my card. I used a sentiment for the set Who's That Birthday Girl.

Thanks for stopping by!
