New Year's News!

Happy New Year's day to you! Hope you all had some good and safe fun last night...we certainly did with some great friends and yummy food too!
Lots of fun stuff to share with you today....First off is my news....can you guess from the card? I'll give you a's MFT! Does my little watermark give it away? If that isn't hint enough you need to hop on over to Kim's Blog for the full deets! I am tickled pink!!!!
Here is a close look at the fun detail of this card....I loved Taylor's sketch with the circle so I "went with it"!
I used a few different transparency overlays.
The "it happened like this" is from the little yellow bicycle...I thought it was the perfect lead into my book themed card. The second transparency and journal card is by Basic Grey...I received it in a goodie pack somewhere and hadn't used it yet.

I love it when I fall into books...and this fun image was perfect! Here are all the deets on this card:
I {heart} books (Stephanie Fizer) by My Favorite Things
Tuxedo Black Memento, Jet Black Stazon (Tsukineko)
Journal Spots and Transparency (Basic Grey)
Transparency (My Little Yellow Bicycle)
Black, White (Prism)
Copic Markers
Opaque White Paint (Copic)

Brads (Basic Grey)
Crocheted Flowers (Made by Me)
Corner Chomper, Border Punch (EK Success)

Here is the sketch so you can play along in TAYLOR'S challenge.
Don't forget to see what the rest of the sketch crew came up with:
Jami Sibley: More is More
Monika Davis: M.A.D. Stamper
Lynn Mercurio: Stamperosity
Melissa Sauls: In Stamping Mode
Rachel Sztonyk: Gingerbread Gallery
Alice Lihsuan-Wertz: Alice's Little Wonderland
Lisa Hjulberg: The Craft's Meow

Thanks for letting me share my fun news with you today! Check back here tomorrow as we start the teasers for MFT's new release! I have a fun card to show you!
