MFT Blog Hop - BLOG CANDY!!!!

Welcome to the very end of the My Favorite Things "Blog Hop"!! So what did you think? Weren't the creations just amazing?? If you've just happened upon my blog and want to go back and view all the MFT Design Team's posts in the blog hop - hop on over to Kim's blog and you can start over from there. Kim is releasing some awesome sets this month and I was VERY honored to be chosen as this month's "My Favorite Stamper" and to be able to work with the FABULOUS new "Who's That E-girl?" set early!! I have a couple of creations for you using the set - but first let's get to that SUPER SWEET BLOG CANDY!!!!! The blog candy I have up for grabs is the new "Who's that E-girl?" set!!! WOO HOO!! Pretty awesome, huh?? Just leave a comment here on my blog and I will randomly choose a winner from the comments - the winner will be announced at the MFT Release Party tonight (Wednesday) over on SCS at 9:15 PM EST - so you have until then to leave a comment and be entered into the drawing for the new E-Girl set.

I have a couple of samples to share with you today using the new E-Girl set - this is such a fun set - not only is the image just TOO cute - but the sentiments that come with the set are AWESOME - just think of all the "Blogoversary" cards you can send!! The card at the top of this post was made using the new set - I colored my entire image in with Copics and drew the flooring in myself. Notice the pink laptop on her lap - that's a little tribute to my pink Dell laptop that my hubby bought me for my birthday - hee hee...I get teased about my pink laptop all the time - but I LOVE it!! I wanted the background of my card to look like a computer keyboard - so I pieced one together using a long strip for a space bar and then some 1 in X 1 in squares for the keys. I round the corners with a corner rounder and then used Doodlebug rub-ons for the letters on the keys as well.

This next project I have using the new E-Girl set is a little 4 in. X 4 in. password journal I made using my Bind It All. If you are anything like me - keeping a password journal is a must - I was one of those people who used the same password for everything and in this new day and age of "phishing" scams - we need to better protect our online info!! So I thought this image would make a fun little password journal - I cut the middle of the image out using my circle nesties and then colored it in with my Copics. I used apple paper from the DCWV Grade School Stack so this journal would be PERFECT for a MAC user - LOL!! The word "Cyber" is from one of the sentiments from the set and the other letters are die cuts.

Thanks so much for stopping by and BIG thanks to Kim, Jody and the entire MFT crew for a fun release week - I SO enjoyed being a part of it - you guys are AWESOME - thanks again!!! And don't forget to leave a comment if you want to be entered into the drawing for the blog candy - see you at the release party!!
