Tag-a-long Day 3 and MFT Teaser!

DAY 3 of Holiday Tag-a-long.....are we having fun yet? Today we are working with one of my favorite things.....FABRIC!
So much chocolate and so little time....oh how true. This darling new image from My Favorite Things is called "Sending a Box of Love" from the Pure Innocence line. It, along with other cuties, are being released December 1st!
Here is a close up so you can see the dimension of the fabric and those sweet little chocolates!
I simply took my #8 tag and a piece of batting and some of my favorite pretty fabric and stacked them together on the tag.
I used my tag as my guide and just stitched around the perimeter to secure the fabric and batting.
This is the backside of what it looks like after stitching.
I take my FABRIC scissors and trim off the excess and then use my crop-a-dile tool and add an eyelet to the top.
I used my "Polkadot Greetings Die" and cut out a piece of X-press it Blending card and stamped my image.
Here are the copic colors I used to color her.
I colored up the pearls I wanted to make "chocolates" with my E29 marker.
Sew on a crocheted trim piece.
I stitched on my colored image too.
I decided to make a ruffled flower for the top of my tag. Quick and easy using the "rolled rose die" to cut my fabric.
Here are a few details you should know about this month's release:
Teasers begin November 27th and will happen every day until and including release day. You can find the list of designers for teasers each day at 11am EST on the MFT Blog.
The release party will be happening on the MFT Forums on December 1st beginning at 8pm EST (that is 5pm for us here in the pacific time zone).
Don't forget to check out our guest designer contest this month. You can find all that info in the forums HERE.
The big "Hop and Shop" day will be release day (December 1st) where you will be able to hop and see all the goodies on the designer's blogs and then do a "shop" the festivities will begin on the MFT blog.

Thanks for stopping by!
