MFTWSC11172010-A Few of My Favorite Things!


Happy Wednesday Stamp Club honeymuffins!!


I'm back today with a fabulous new challenge from My Favorite Things!  This week's challenge is a FUN ONE!! get ready to let your creativity flow right along to the sound of music!! no - I mean literally, ladies!! this week's challenge is "My Favorite Things", and it is based on the wonderful song from The Sound of Music.  (cue Julie Andrews in the background please!!)  Seriously, I've been yodeling around for the past few days while working on this challenge and trust me, it wasn't pretty!Smiley from

Anyhoo, back to the challenge this week - all you have to do is create a card or project insipred by the lyrics of this lovely song!!  How fun is that?? Besides, keep in mind you can win $15.00 in MFT big bucks to spend on some goodies! Please upload your creation to SCS using keyword MFTWSC11172010 for a chance to win!!

Here is the card I made inspired by this week's challenge:

My card was inspired by this part of the song:

"Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into Springs
These are a few of my favorite things"

For my card layout I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch SSSC93.  I just knew I had to use my Sweet Spring Jolinne stamp, which is just too cute for words, and perfect for the challenge!! Her glittery white dress is "dolled up" using Stardust stickles.  I colored the rest of her using Copic Markers and paired her up with my new Snowflake Die-Namics dies.  I cut out my snowflakes using vellum CS and added a couple of rhinestones to the centers.  I added some satin ribbon and embossed my silver and white panels, and finished it all up by a strip of "diamond" glitter using tape.  Isn't it just wintery?? I just love it!!

I hope you play along with us this week!  If you'd like, you can check out the lyrics I used as reference for the song HERE.  Also, please head on over to Kim's Blog any time after 11:00AM EST to check out the fabu-creations of the rest of the MFT Challenge Team!
