Sweet Friend

This was a difficult post to write because as you may have read on the MFT Blog, this is my last post as a design team member.

I will be ever grateful for the wonderful time I've had on the MFT design team. I've made some wonderful stamping friends who turned out to be even more amazing in real life, and they'll always hold a special place in my heart. Don't worry though…I'm still going to be stamping, and of course I'll be stalking the design team blogs for all the new release stuff each month!!

In honour of MFT I created a sweet card in the MFT colours of pink and black (with a little kraft thrown in just because I can).

I started with a Sweet Tooth card base then added the Kraft along the bottom. I stitched around it and stamped a sentiment from Doodle Garden Sweet Friend using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.

I stamped the girl with versamark ink onto Pink Lemonade and embossed her with white powder. I used a light pink marker to highlight the heart then covered it with glitter. The Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics were perfect for cutting out the pink circle.

I used the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics to cut out the Black Licorice flag then I stamped it with the dots from Large Scale Backgrounds using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink. I have no idea why the white ink appears blue in the picture, but it's really white in real life.

Thanks again My Favorite Things!!!

Here are the supplies I used:

Sweet friend is the perfect card Karen, but I have to say I actually got a little teared up when I read you are stepping down from the MFT design team😢. I know you and your fabulous talent will be sorely missed at MFT but I also know you will keep on stamping and for that I am very grateful. Can't wait to see what life holds in store for you in 2014 and all the wonderful creations you will come up! BIG hugs my friend💗.

Hey there, friend! I'm a few days late, but I wanted to let you know that I will miss seeing your monthly MFT creations! I also know how difficult it is to step away from that team. I'm just thankful that it brought the two of us together! Can't wait to hear about what you have planned for 2014! Hugs!! :)
