MFTSWC24 – Hello, Sunshine

Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.

MFT PI Hello Sunshine


I'm freakishly excited to be able to share with you my first card as a guest designer for My Favorite Things (MFT) "Just Delightful Clear Stamps." If you've followed my blog for very long (God Love Ya!), you know they're one of my favorite stamping extravagances, especially anything by their illustrators, Claire Keay and Heather Ellis. They just pluck my heart strings with their sweet images, like this one, appropriately called "Hello, Sunshine" – she really is a little ray of sunshine.

Today I get to help unveil the latest MFT Wednesday Stamp Club sketch, MFTWSC24.

It's such a fabulous sketch, that I almost feel guilty about how easy it was to create this card. All I had to do was add Claire Keay's adorable image and a pretty patterned paper pack and presto-chango – a fabulous card (if I do say so myself, which I do).  I flipped the sketch and I love the results.

I added My Mind's Eye Stella Rose paper, taffeta ribbon, linen thread, button, and a Spellbinder die cut. Everything else is MFT magic.
