Happy Thursday!! So did you just LOVE all the new releases from MFT?? I know I have had a blast with them - I just love that Kim is giving us a couple of really awesome boy sets this month - I definitely think there has been a lack of boyish stuff in the papercrafting industry - so I'm loving this new trend of boy themed products!! I'm almost thru my first stack of the DCWV All About Boys stack - LOL - I'm gonna need to go pick me up another one of those - hee hee...anywho - I wanted to share my card I made with the new MFT Presents "Cuddle Up Carter" set released yesterday. This was a card I did for yesterday's sketch challenge - you can view the sketch here. I was so tempted to flip the sketch to make Carter fit on the image panel a bit better - but I loved that angled panel on the horizontal card I decided to challenge myself to make it work and this is what I came up with. I made a little scene with this new set - I stamped Carter first - masked his blanket and stamped the train from the set behind him - then I stamped his little frog beside him. Once I had my images stamped - I drew in my wood floor with a Copic multiliner pen and a ruler - I actually did a HTDT? tutorial last December on how to do these - you can check it out here if you are interested. I colored in my image with Copics and paper pieced his blanket with paper from the DCWV All About Boys stack. Once I had everything colored - I used my Scor-Pal to score the lines on the wall for the "paneling" - that was a fun little extra I added that really brings this scene to life I think. The sentiment is from the new Cuddle Up Carter set as well. Do you want to know the very best thing about this set though??? Well - for the first 6 months after it's release - $2 from every Cuddle Up Carter set purchased will be donated to a non-profit organization called Europeds (www.europeds.org) - an organization dedicated to helping children with cerebal palsy. The set was made with our very own Carole's super adorable and special DS Carter in mind - he has mild to moderate cerebal palsy and Carole has shared their amazing story with us all and how this organization has helped her precious little Carter. I love knowing the backstories to these sets - it really makes the just extra extra special - so I hope you'll pop on over to the MFT site and pick up you Cuddle Up Carter set - not only do you get an uber-adorable set - but you'll be helping some pretty special kiddos as well!! Thanks so much for stopping by - I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday and if you're looking for a little extra MFT fun this coming week - pop in and check out the new MFT Idol Challenge here!!
