à la modes - Blue Without You

Today's the preview day for our fabulous friends the a la modes! There are two stamp sets previewing today, but I'm sharing a little sample with à la modes - Blue Without You. I love her sweet little face, and oh my goodness, what I'd give for long legs like that. (Nope. I'm five foot one and long, skinny jeans are NOT my friend.)

This would be a great set to send to someone in the military, or to bring a smile to a military wife who's patiently waiting at home. I'm ALWAYS so in awe of military families, and so, very, very grateful! xoxox

I pulled for some patriotic papers in my collection to go along with this set - you'll find some red white and blue from Basic Grey and this fun yellow from Pink Paislee's Hometown collection that I adore!


I've finally reached the end of my denim scraps... looks like its time to buy the boys new jeans so I can decimate a new pair. Using my Vagabond, Die-namics cut through denim like butter! Love that.

Um, are you proud of me for using colored card-stock? I know reaching for something non-neutral is hard for me... but the red was just what I needed in this instance.

I've been loving having a full week to play around with the newest release from My Favorite Things, I hope you all have been enjoying that too! Remember that we're now leaving the Teaser Time prize commenting open till JUST before our new release party on the 6th.

Be sure to visit the MFT Blog each day for a full list of participating designers. You'll maximize your chances at winning one of fourteen prizes by leaving a comment on each of the previews, each day!
