I'm Feelin' Fruity!! **MFT Hop Around the Block**

Hello and welcome to the July mid-month MFT Hop Around the Block!! If you've just happened onto my blog - then hop back over to Kim's blog and start the hop from there - I'll see ya when you get back!! ;) We've got some of the cutest sets to show you along the way - I'm gonna start by sharing a card made with the UBER-CUTE "Feelin' Fruity" set - OMG - the fruits are just precious and the sentiments are so sweet - you are gonna LOVE this set!! I used the pear image from the set - I stamped one pear onto my MFT Perfect Paper panel - masked it with Eclipse masking tape - then stamped my second pear to create the "perfect pair" - LOL!! I colored them in with Copics (and BTW - if you want to see how to get that cool 2 tone effect on the fruit - check out my new HTDT? Tutorial this week here). The paper is from the MFT 6X6 Spring Collection - the buttons are from the Spring Button collection too and I don't know if you can see - I added a little stem and leaf to each one. The pink ribbon is from the yummy MFT Plaid ribbon pak.
This second card was done with the new Annie LaPoint "Harvest of Hope" set - what a beautiful image, huh?? I can see this one being VERY versatile!! The image was colored in with Copics and the new HTDT? tutorial also shows a great trick on getting shading in those small leaves and flower petals. The paper on this one is from the MFT Spring collection as well and the ribbon from the MFT plaid ribbon pak. I punched my flowers and put a small pink gemstone in the center of each of them as well.

MFT is releasing 3 sets - which will be available starting at midnight - Feelin' Fruity, Spread a Harvest of Hope (Annie LaPoint) and Bubble Bunny. Be sure to get your order in early to qualify for the "First 50" - the special "First 50" Memento Dew Drop collection continues this week with "Bamboo Leaves"!! And in honor of another Copic tutorial - this week's spotlight is on the My Favorite Copic Collection - the perfect way to either start or add-on to your Copic collection!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by - your next stop on the hop is Cindy- and I know she has some BEAUTIFUL eye candy to share with you!!!
