Better Get Better {MFTWSC2}

It's time for this week's MFT Wednesday Stamp Club, MFTWSC2. The weekly sketch is posted each Wednesday at midnight on the MFT Blog and in the MFT Forum on Splitcoast, as well as in the weekly newsletter.

There's a prize each week for one participant, chosen at random. You may use any stamps and supplies that you wish. Each week a keyword is assigned to the sketch, and this week's keyword is MFTWSC2. All you need to do to enter is upload your card to the gallery at Splitcoast and enter the given keyword in the keyword box during the upload process. After the deadline (noon Eastern on Tuesday) we randomly choose a winner from that week's entries and the winner will receive a $15 gift voucher. If the winning card uses MFT stamps, the participant will earn a $5 bonus, for a total of a $20 gift voucher!

For this week's sketch I used Better Get Better to make a card for my mom. She slipped on some ice and broke her wrist last week so this should cheer her up. The bright side of it all is that she broke her left wrist and she's right-handed, and this all happened after the Christmas rush so no home cooking was affected. Aren't I just the most sympathetic daughter ever! LOL!!!

She's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copics. The patterned papers are October Afternoon Thrift Shop. I used my jumbo ric rac die-namic on the darker blue and finished it with three blue rhinestone brads. I kept this card quite flat for mailing because the Christmas card I sent my parents...long before Christmas I might add...just arrived last week. C'mon Canada Post! LOL!!!

Be sure to head over to Kim's Blog to view the entire list of design team participants...there's plenty of inspiration for you!

Thanks for stopping by!
