Always plant happiness - MFT August Teaser, Day One

It's that time of the month--time for My Favorite Things Teasers! Here's what you need to know:
  • The August Guest Designer contest starts today and will be announced here.
  • Teasers begin today and will continue through Wednesday, August 4th. Be sure to check Kim's blog every day at 11:00am for links to designers previewing each day.
  • The August Hop and Shop will begin at 10:00pm on August 4th, with the hop starting at Kim's Blog.

Today we're previewing How Your Garden Grows (a new Stephanie Fizer set) and Clearly Sentimental about Gardens--last month's Triple Scoop set. I'm giving you a little taste of How Your Garden Grows today. I'm SO happy to have a new set with flowers--I love this set! SO many possibilities!! I decided to go kinda clean and simple with this card to highlight the set images--aren't these little flowers and stems adorable?? And what a sweet little sentiment!! There's so much more to this set--I'm in LUV!


Other MFT products I used on this card are Fossil and Wild Cherry card stock, Summer Button Collection, Jumbo Ric Rak Die-namics die (temporarily out of stock), and Ribbon RE:Creations Grograin Texture Board.



This card is also for the Crazy 4 Challenges challenge today, which is a sketch from Jessie, our hostess for July. See the C4C blog for all the details.

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow with another preview!
