First of all, it's the first day of MFT stamp sneak peeks. You saw the dies yesterday, but today you'll be seeing three new sets as you visit the DT. I'm showing you Thanks a Bunch, which was a previous Triple Scoop set and now will be available on it's own. So, be sure to check out Kim's blog at 11:am EDT 'cause she'll have a list of the DT members that are going to WOW you today!
Second, the uber-talented Michele Boyer and I are hosting the MFT Guest Designer Challenge this month. The theme is Some Like It Hot. All the deets will be up at the MFT Member Company forum at SCS at about 7am this morning, so be sure to check it out. The winner will receive all of the new stamp sets for the July release plus join the MFT Design Team for that month's release! Fun!!
And third, it's Crazy 4 Challenges day! Frances is our host today and she's challenging us to make a tent card. Well, I had never made one of these but they're super easy! And Frances is right--they're fun! She has a link to some directions on the C4C blog so check it out and play along with us!
OK, now for my Some Like It Hot/Crazy 4 Challenges project! I found this adorable tea towel in my travels and it became the inspiration for a cute little gift set. Loved the bright colors--just so cheerful and happy, don't you think? Here's the complete set.
In addition to the sentiment on the card, which is from Thanks a Bunch, I'm using In the Background for the tea kettle...
Coffee? Tea? for the paper pierced mug, and Hot Stuff for the tea bag cover sentiment.
Inside of the tea bag holder.
Other MFT products that I'm using are: Sour Apple card stock and Spring and Summer button collections.
NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of my crazy girls...er, I mean the Crazy 4 Challenges team ;-)
