OMG, TTYL, LOL and all that text talk!! **MFT MID-MONTH HOP AROUND THE BLOCK**

Hello and welcome to the mid-April installment of the MFT Hop Around the Block!! If you haven't hopped over here from Jody's blog - then start back over on Kim's blog and hop from there - I'll "c u" when you get back!! LOL!! MFT is releasing 2 FABULOUS new sets today - I teased you with the new MFT Presents "What a Girl Wants" (by new illustrator Amanda Baird) on Monday and today I've got a card using the second set being released today - a new BC Dzyns set called "Text Ya Later" and how appropriate, huh?? I think I am the last person on Earth to finally learn to text from my phone (I sent my first text a few weeks ago - hee hee...) - my teenage niece finally got me into it and now she texts me all the time - LOL!! The main image on my card is the new BC Dzyns girl - I stamped her on the WONDERFUL recently released MFT Perfect Paper panels (Copics blend AMAZING on this stuff!!!!) and colored her in with Copics (and if you are interested - today's HTDT? tutorial in on coloring skin tones with Copics - you can view my new tutorial here). I pieced the big cell phone together - started with a red rectangle cardstock base - then added a gray panel for the "screen' and some small rectangles for the buttons on the phone - I used Doodlebug mini-rub ons for the numbers on the phone. The sentiment on the phone as well as the one on the corner of the card are both from this new set - I'm telling ya - it's PERFECT for those teenagers in your life!!! The patterned paper is from the DCWV Grade School stack.

If you haven't voted yet for your favorite (or favorites) in the MFT Idol Judges contest this week - be sure you do that today as well - you can view all their AMAZING projects and vote here. Also - there is the What's Up Wednesday challenge to play in as well over on the MFT forum at SCS - SO much MFT fun going on today!!

So are you ready to hop along??? Your next stop on the hop is the AMAZINGLY talented Jessie - I know she has some supah sweet eye candy to share with you!!! Thanks for stopping by!!
