November Blog Hop and Shop

Welcome to MFT's November Release Blog Hop and Shop!! If you came here from Frances's Blog you are in the right place. If you want to start at the beginning of the hop go on over to Kim's Blog.

I'm am using Jolinne - Winter Recital for my project tonight. A couple of daughters were involved in dance for many years. The Holiday Season was filled with Winter Recitals or productions of the Nutcracker. Now I have moved on to going to recitals for my nieces. so my project includes a card and a small brag book that she could put photos in later.

I colored with Copics, sponged the background and paper pieced her dress. At the bottom of her tutu I added pop up dots to give some dimension and glitter. Sewing, rhinestones, ribbon, and the new Die-manic Faux Crochet Die finish it off.



On the inside I stamped another sentiment and image from the set.

I purchased this brag book at Michael's for a couple of dollars. I covered it to coordinate with my card, and added another sentiment from the set.

Hope you have enjoyed this release as much as I have!! Now it is time to hop on over to sweet and talented Lisa's Blog to see what she has to share.

You can find all the new products right HERE!

THANKS!

Melody
