Pure Innocence Teaser Day!

Happy New Year! Something new has been added to my stamping arsenal this year....can you guess what it is? Chirp, chirp....a cricut! I am still getting to know this machine as it is my first ever electronic cutter, so right now I am just going off of what is on the cartridges (this one being called "Cindy Loo"). I haven't made the leap yet to the SCAL program....but I am sure that is coming:)
This little cut out made the perfect backdrop for the "Because You're Special" Pure Innocence girl from My Favorite Things!
Here is a close up of my copic coloring. You also can see the fun jewels that I added to the centers of the flowers in her bouquet.

It is teaser time and you know what that means! It is getting close to the monthly release time at My Favorite Things! Here are a few details you should know about this month's release:
Teasers begin December 31st and will happen every day until and including release day. You can find the list of designers for teasers each day on the MFT Blog.
The release party will be happening on the MFT Forums on January 4th 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 (January 4th) 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.


Enjoy your day!

OH Sherrie,
I am so thrilled for you! I have had my cricut for the last 2 years and just took the copic certification in the summer with you! So I am excited to see what ideas to come up with. I am always so inspired with your creations. Congrats! Would love to see your work in the new Cricut Magazine =)
Cheers

Sherrie, this is so cute! Love the blue and brown and I'm glad you explained the cricut because I thought you found some way to mix and match up the dienamics -- I thought you'd put the tree into the doily and all sorts of things were going through my head!
