Aged to Perfection **April MFTeaser**

Good morning!! Whew - what a week - and it's only Tuesday!! I ended up with both of my boys home sick yesterday - yikes! We spent the morning at the Dr. and found out that my oldest son Andrew had never gotten over the Strep throat he had last week and that my youngest son Calvin ended up with it too - I guess I'm glad we caught it early in the week - our Spring Break starts on Friday and I would hate for them to be sick on their break and not enjoy it. I do have a teaser for you today of the new MFT "Girls Night Out" set being released tomorrow - this set is just fabulous - not only do you get this gorgeous main image and a ton of great sentiments - but there are wine glasses, a martini glass and a margarita glass in it too - lots of great images for a perfect girls night out!! I chose to use the main image for my card and go with a vintage wine feel to it - I paper pieced their clothes and colored the rest of the image with Copics. I pieced my background together to look like an old-fashioned wine cellar - I started with the dark brown base - then criss crossed 1/2 in. thick tan strips of cardstocks on it - cut the excess off at the edges and then placed brads where they criss-crossed. I finished off the cards with some Primas and a couple of branch pieces cut from the Martha Stewart branch punch. There is lots of exciting stuff happening over on the MFT forum this week...
