MFT March VIP and a la modes Hop and Shop!

It's one of my favorite times of the month again - MFT VIP time! I {heart} WTG and have we got an awesome one for you this month! OK, every month, but this one is REALLY awesome :) If you got here from Sherrie's blog you're right on track. If you just happened upon my blog, my suggestion is to head on over to Kim's blog 'cause that's where it all starts. Trust me, you don't want to miss a single thing along the way :)

Tonight at 10 PM EST, the MFT VIP package will be released. It is a LIMITED QUANTITY product, that gives customers the opportunity to purchase the WTG set TWO WEEKS early.This month it's Who's That Musical Girl? and here's what you get in the VIP package:

The MFT VIP Package includes:
Who's that Musical Girl? stamp set

Musical Notes Die-namics die

An assortment of White and/or Black Pearl Flourish and Cream/Rhinestone Stick Pins
Idea-Ology Trimming ribbon

And, of course, the two recently previewed à la modes are fully released tonight at 10pm EST.
And now, my card. I gotta say I {heart} this card, too. See, I have this gorgeous piano sitting in my living room that I got for Christmas when I was in the first grade. I took piano lessons and my dear mother wanted me to learn how to play so badly. Alas, though, I had no talent for it so she let me quit after 6 years ;-) So, WTG playing the piano is for my mother :)

I stamped the image on a Perfect Paper Panel (have I mentioned how much I love these? I LOVE them!!!) and what I didn't paper piece I colored with Copic markers. I went vintage with it since my piano would be considered vintage now, LOL!! The music paper is from MFT's digi paper pack Take Note and I used the Faux Crochet Border Die-namics die for a border on top of the lace. Some hand-dyed and crinkled seam binding, a button, and some twine finish it off. My base card is MFT's Fossil card stock and the sentiment is from the Musical Girl Mini Stamp set that is ONLY available in the VIP Package--it will never be offered for sale after tomorrow night at 11:59pm. So get it while the gettin's good!

Here's the inside of my card. These musical notes are from Who's That Musical Girl and the sentiment is also from the Musical Girl Mini set.

And here are the copics I used.

Sooooo, thanks SO much for dropping by! Now you need to head on over to the amazing Melody's blog and see what she has for you. I'm pretty sure you'll be glad you did. Just sayin' ;-)
