Let's Grab Drinks

Oh hooray! I can't really believe it, but it is already time for the next round of previews for the upcoming release from My Favorite Things.  Today we're jumping in with a new and really FUN Who's That Girl titled Let's Grab Drinks.  

I used this wood panel paper for the background, this reminds me of the wood paneled walls from a recent pub visit with my college pals.  And, in honor of my friend Kim, today's WTG is featuring an Apple-tini her very favorite. Oops, I guess it's been "five o'clock" a lot lately?

This image is easy as pie to paper piece, I am using one of the new My Mind's Eye 6x6 sized pads, which are just a fabulous scale for card making.  My layout is a slightly modified version of Karen G's recent Sweet Sunday Sketch.   


You will love the huge variety of sentiments included in this stamp set.
Check it out....



I love using large flag shapes like this in my card making, but I can never seem to cut these perfectly no matter how I measure it out.  I'm really, really excited to be able to add wide banners to my projects with ease now thanks to this fun new Die-namics.  Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics is a six piece stacking Die-namics. Whether I need skinny banner elements, or wide banners like the one above, I've now got exactly what I need for perfectly cut ends. YEAH! 




Be sure to check the MFT Blog for a full list of designers with samples for you today!
Mark your calendars because teasers will continue until the new release on 
Tuesday, April 6th at 10pm EST.....

To me, the grey wood paneling represents an old, weathered fence. This card makes me think of cocktail parties held outdoors, and barbecues in the summertime... and I can hardly wait. ;)
