Cheers to my OMG BIG NEWS!!!!!


That's pretty much what has been running through my head for the past 5 weeks or so since Kim van der Sanden and Jody Morrow called me and invited me to join the

Yup!  I finally made it!  It's no secret that I have been trying to weasel my way on to this team for quite some time.   I have ALWAYS been a big fan of MFT, but when I took a trip to FL to meet up with a bunch of crafty friends last March and went to the visit the MFT Boutique, the obsession began.  I just fell in love with it all and knew I wanted to be a part of this.   I have been working my tail off to show MFT that I have what it takes to be an MFT designer.   All my hard work has finally paid off!   Jody said she admired my tenacity.  I can't think of a better compliment that that!

To celebrate, I am giving away the new Doodle Garden stamp set that will be released on January 7th to one of my blog followers!   Just leave a comment on this post to qualify!  I will announce the winner on Sunday, January 5th!

If you follow my blog, you know that I have been doing some guest designing this month for MFT and today is my last post as a guest because tomorrow I am FULL-TIME Designer for MFT and I will be participating in the 1st of  7 days of release sneak peeks!

 While I can't show you the entire card here on my blog, I CAN give you a sneak of a little celebratory  something I made with the new Die-namics Layered Champagne Glass and Stitched Circle STAX!

I am about to kick off 2014 by starting a new job as the Dementia Program Director at a local nursing home AND I will be a full-time designer for MFT!   This is going to be a GREAT year!   

Wishing you a very happy and healthy New Year!

Now head on over t the MFT Blog to see the entire card 
and to see WHO ELSE has been added to the MFT Design Team!

DS131 - A Gift for You

It's a circular sketch this week on the Deconstructed Sketch challenge.  Does that scare you?  It scares me.  
BUT, I must say.....I found a way to make it work! I made a handy dandy little gift tag that has since been attached to a present and slid under the the Christmas tree so it's all good!  

I started with the PTI Tag Sale #4 and die cut the ornament tag.  I used the MFT circle STAX to die cut gumdrop green and red hot circles.  I cut them in half and added a strip of hot fudge CS across the middle.

I used he MFT Woodgrain background stamp, the Textile Backgrounds stamp set, and the More Washi Patterns stamp set to create the patterned papers.    The sentiment is from the MFT Essential Sentiments stamp set.  I used the MFT Die-namics fishtail flag STAX to create te banner and added a red pearl.   

Here is the sketch:
