Count your blessings


Meet the "Sweetest Pumpkin in the Patch"....she is a new a la mode girl that is being released on Tuesday at My Favorite Things. I was inspired by the sentiment that is in the set  and pulled out my "By the numbers" die-namic. This is all new Clementine papers from Cosmo Cricket. Can you spot the two NEW dies on the card? There is the Oval tab and the Postage stamp border. I am LOVING the oval die, I have used it in quite a few spots lately.

I colored her up with my copic markers and decided the white background was too stark for a fall card so I went in with my YR00 after I was all done to give the white parts a "peachy" glow.  My pumkin colors were YR20, YR12, YR16, YR18 and BV01.


Here are the details about the upcoming release on October 4 at 10 PM EST:
  • The MFT release is on October 4 at 10 PM EST. You can attend the release party from 8-10 PM EST here in the forum for fun, games, and prizes! All the new sets and dies will be available October 4 at 10 PM EST.
