Treat Yourself!! **MFT May Hop Around the Block**

Welcome to a relaxing MFT "Hop Around the Block"!! If you've just happened onto my blog - you may want to go back and start the hop at Kim's blog - I'll be waiting for you when you get back!! ;) Oh la la - wouldn't you LOVE to be hangin' at the day spa with our Who's That Girl?? For this first card - I've used the new "Girls Day In" set along with some of the new GORGEOUS 6X6 Chocolate Kiss paper that is being released as well (I paper pieced the robes with it). I really wanted to showcase the set with this card - there are so many adorable images in this set - each of my panels on the card show one of the images. The pink panels are 2 1/2 in. squares and the MFT Perfect Paper panel squares for my images are 2 1/4 in. squares. For the WTG? images - I had to just stamp part of the full image on my squares and for the other squares - I had to do a bit of masking with the bottles. All images were colored in with Copics - and the white puffy parts on the robe were accented with white Liquid Applique. The sentiment is from the new "Girls Day In" set as well.

And before you go - I've got a card to share with you using the new "Birthday Flopsey" set - he's pretty much just irresistable, isn't he?? LOL!! I stamped my Flopsey on an MFT Perfect Paper panel and let his ear hang off the edge so I didn't cover up too much of my birthday cake background. I colored in Flopsey with Copics. My b-day cake background was just pieced together with various rectangles - I did emboss the "candles" with the Cuttlebug Swirls embossing folder. I used buttons for the candle "flames" (since Kim is releasing some YUMMY Spring and Summer Cup o'Button collections - I thought it would be neat to show some fun uses for buttons ;) ) The striped paper on the bottom of my cake background is from the 6X6 Chocolate Kiss paper line (have I mentioned how GORGEOUS this paper is??) The sentiment is from the new Flopsey set as well.

These 2 new sets - along with "Owls and Bluebelles" and "Snuggle Bunnies" will be released after the MFT Cocktail Party (8-11 PM EST Wednesday night over on SCS). During this release - MFT is also introducing the Chocolate Kiss 6X6 paper, ribbon and crystal adornments - new Spring and Summer Cup O' Buttons and Smooch Paint (I've tried this stuff and it rocks!!). So there is LOTS of new stuff for you to check out!! K - hope you've enjoyed this stop on the hop - it's time to hop on over to Michele's blog - I know she's got some YUMMY eye candy to share with you!!
