MFTeaser......Ride 'Em Cowgirl!!!

This is a new mini-set, called 'Ride 'Em, Cowgirl!', which will be released this Wednesday, March 5th. I really like the images and sentiments, and had a lot of fun coloring this image. I used a bit of twine to make her lasso, then trimmed & her arm & popped it up on dimensionals to give the image a bit more depth (though the main image is already popped up on 4 layers--each separated by dimensionals already....I need to buy stock in the company that makes the dimensionals that I use!) The color of her dress appears a bit 'off' in the photo, it really does match the DP much more closely IRL.
Also, as a reminder......

My Favorite Things ( is having a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday, March 5 from 9-11 p.m. Eastern time. Lots of fun is planned including finding out how YOU can be the next MFT Guest Designer. Head over to the MFT forum on to find out all the details and join us there on Wednesday night.

More Cupcakes!!

I finally finished the last two pieces for a cupcake-themed gift set that I've put together. This stamp set is by Hero Arts, and I really like the images--SO much fun to color! I found the wood frame at Michael's (for a dollar) and used Mod Podge to adhere the DP. The journal is a dollar-store find, and the DP is adhered in the same way. I used a bunch of scraps from my stash to add a bunch poof to the journal, plus added a ribbon blossom to the frame. My niece, Emilee, is crazy about purple and pink, so this set is for her. I hope she likes it!Have a wonderful day, everyone, and thanks for looking!
