Friends Brighten Your Day!!!


Good morning stampers!! It's another day in paradise..........well, not really! It's snowin' again here in sunny Southwestern Ontario. But today I don't mind so much, because I only work the evening shift at the library!! Whippee!! So I have big plans for today! I need to get the last 5 of my Christmas card orders done, make a couple more samples for the 'big show' tonight and tidy this craft room....it's atrocious!!! So I don't mind lookin' out the window at the white stuff falling down, as long as I'm inside, all toasty warm with my coffee and my fuzzy socks!!

Here is another sneaky peek at one of the new My Favorite Things stamp sets that will be released tonight at the Cocktail Release Party over on SCS! As much as I love Baby It's Cold Outside, I think THIS one is MY favourite!! I mean, who doesn't love umbrellas and wellies (that means wellington boots, for you non-British folk)?? The set comes with some adorable sentiments like, I'll be your umbrella, Rain or Shine, Feeling Under the Weather? and Friends Brighten Your Day. It also has a polka dotted umbrella, a cloud and some raindrops.

For this card, I pulled out my Cutie Pie designer papers by Stampin' Up. Boy, it's a good thing I ordered some more during the Paper Party Promotion, because I LOVE this colour combo and the designs!! The card base is a regular sized So Saffron card with some Rose Red matting the two types of dp on the front. I stamped the adorable image on some Fabriano watercolour paper in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink and coloured it in using my SU markers. I paper pieced her raincoat with another of the Cutie Pie dps and covered the puddle of rain in Crystal Effects, although you can't really tell in the picture, but it really looks like water in real life....I swear!! Then I stamped the raindrops in Bashful Blue all around the girl and her weiner dog!! I matted it in BB and Certainly Celery and then added some Prima Sprites, a Rose Red button and some linen thread!!

Well, I'm off to get busy and I hope to see you all tonight! I'll be rushing home from work and joining all the fun in the My Favorite Things forum! The party begins at 9pm EST!! There will be some awesome projects revealed (mine included....I'm so excited!), some giveaways, a coupon code, a cool challenge and YOU, yes YOU could become a Guest Designer for MFT!! Woohoo!!! See you there!!!

Love, love this card! It is so... cute! And it goes great with the SU PP! The paperpieced raincoat is awesome! I loved Baby, It's Cold Outside, but living in Alabama I tend not to purchase "snow" related stamps. This one is perfect! Can't wait for the MFT release tonight. Hope my family will let me "play!"
