MFT February Teaser, Day Five


It's time for the last teaser before the February release! Are you getting excited about tonight? I am--can't wait for the release party and then the hop and YOU get to shop!! Today we're showing you WTG My How You've Grown and Clearly Sentimental About Parenting. I'm going to show you Clearly Sentimental About Parenting, but first, you need to know:
  • The February Guest Designer Contest has ended and the winner will be announced at the release party.
  • Teasers end today. Head on over to Kim's blog to see what the rest of the team has come up with for today's teasers. Every day there will be a prize hidden on two of the Creative Team's blog posts. Leaving a comment on every designer's blog post will give you the best chance of winning every day :) Check the MFT blog daily for the winners.
  • The February Hop and Shop will begin at 10:00pm TONIGHT, with the hop also starting at Kim's Blog.
And here's my card. I went a little scrappy with this one--the kite made me do it ;-) I love this paper from October Afternoon's Fly a Kite collection. Reminds me of yesteryear.


I used the Perfect Bracket Edge Die-namics die and the new Fly a Kite Die-namics die for the front of this card and stamped the sentiment on the bracket layer. Other MFT products I used are Whip Cream and Black Licorice card stock.


And I used the bracket on the inside, as well as another sentiment from the set. Some twill and some buttons give it a retro kind of feel I think. 



Thanks so much for stopping by! See you tonight at the Release Party and the Hop and Shop!
