With such a huge release at My Favorite Things each month a few things are certain.
#1 - no matter how early I start, I'll never get a chance to use all of the items in the release, no matter how much I love them.
#2 - I will make a complete, and total mess of my desk.
So, with that being said, I watched a little DVR'd television and sat down to clean my desk. I won't lie, it was hideous. I think you might have seen the gazillion cards I made for the New Product Tour?
After I cleaned all the way down to the desktop, put away all my Die-namics and emptied the trash. I cleaned up a million dimensional backings off the floor. Sorted out my patterned paper. And then looked at the collection of stamps that I wanted to use from this release, but never got around to.
So, of course, that meant that I had to make just *one* more card. Rather than direct linking throughout the post, I've got all the visual links at the bottom of the post today...
This is Blessed Mouse "It's Your Birthday" I paired with some new October Afternoon patterned paper, and this scrap of grid paper - which I think might be an old scrap of Cosmo Cricket. I hoard ledger, grid and text patterned paper like you wouldn't believe. They're great basics that will mix with just about anything.
I added a Layered Rose Die-namics and the Royal Leaves both cut from MFT Felt. I finished it off with a small button. I diced up the Sentiment Strips to stagger the sentiment.
