Breakfast at Tiffany's **MFTeaser!!**

I'm back!!!! First of all - I hope you all had a wonderful and blessed Easter!! Sorry for the long absence - boy - I really thought I was gonna get SO much stamping time over Spring Break and I got NADA!! LOL!! We just ended up doing a lot over Spring Break - we had a blast - spent some time at museums, got their dentist appts. in - that sort of thing - oh - and my little man turned 4 on Friday!!!! WOW - how time flies, huh?? So anywho - I'm back and stamping again and I have some REALLY fun MFT stuff to share with you this week - Kim is releasing 2 new sets this coming Wednesday - April 15th - and they are soooooooooo awesome!! The first set I am gonna tease you with today is a new set from the MFT Presents line by a new illustrator Amanda Baird (who happens to be the niece of our very own fearless DT leader Carole) - the set is called "What a Girl Wants" - isn't this image just FABULOUS!!!??? I'm not kidding - I literally squealed when I saw it! I knew this image reminded me of something - but I couldn't quite put my finger on it - and then Kim hit the nail on the head - doesn't she totally remind you of Holly Golightly staring longingly in the window at Tiffany's?? I was obsessed with Audrey Hepburn movies when I was a teenager - my mom had bought me a set of them for Christmas - and I would watch "Breakfast at Tiffany's" over and over again (I was a sucker for "Roman Holiday" too). Anywho - so this is my tribute to one of my all-time fave actresses and movies - I even added a little Tiffany blue and that signature white ribbon to the background. I did embellish the image a bit - I drew in the sidewalk and the bricks with my Copic Multiliner pen and a ruler and added a hint of Stickles to her tiara and some liquid pearls to well - to her pearls - LOL! This set will be released on Wednesday and as always - stop by Kim's blog a midnight for the start of another amazing MFT blog hop for more teasers of these new sets!!

Also - there is a very special MFT Idol competetion going on this week for the MFT Idol JUDGES (i.e. all those who are not the Top 10 contestants - we're giving the Top 6 contestants a much needed week off) - check out this thread for details - you could be in the running to win an MFT VIP package which always includes an unreleased set!!! All you have to do is show off your skills with those MFT stamps! ;) I hope you'll pop on over and play - you have until tomorrow at 10 PM to post your project - so there's still plenty of time to come up with something fabulous!!

That so happens to me too! I think I will get so crafty during time off but I so enjoy doing nothing and catching up on other things that it just never happens.

Glad you're back with this card! It's fabulous!!
