The BOYS are back in town!! **MFT BLOG HOP**

Oh yeah - this month at MFT - the BOYS are back in town!! LOL!! If you've just happened upon my blog and want to start at the beginning of this month's MFT Hop Around the Block - then hop back over to Kim's blog and start from there - I'll see you when you get back!! ;) What an exciting month of releases!! Most of you know that I have 2 little boys - so I just LOVE seeing all these new boys sets and papers and everything coming out - I was SUPER excited when I pulled out the new "Ben Paper Dolls" set by Stephanie Fizer for the MFT Presents line - what a FUN FUN FUN set and a perfect companion for the previously released Isabelle Paper Dolls set. For this first card - I dressed Ben in his Super Hero costume (I stamped the outfit first - then masked it and stamped Ben on the outfit). I also did some masking to put the city scene from the previously released MFT "Going Places" set behind him. The little super dog is from the Ben Paper Dolls set too - isn't he adorable!? I colored my scene with Copics. The "pow" are die cut letters - I dusted off my very favorite Sizzlits "Big Top" alphabet for the letters. The sentiment is from the MFT Sassy Sayings set and the paper is from the DCWV All About Boys stack. I've got one more card I made with Ben for you before you go hopping along your way...
For this card - I dressed Ben up in his spaceman oufit - I masked him - stamped the alien twice behind him (this image is also included in the new set) and I drew the planet underneath them. The entire image was colored in with Copics and I did the stars with a white gel pen. The paper on this one is also from the DCWV All About Boys stack and the sentiment from the MFT Sassy Sayings set. The stars are die cuts and the brads are from JoAnn's. Thanks so much for stopping by - and don't forget...
