There's a smile on my face, and a brand new light in my eyes...

How about an MFTeaser this fine Monday afternoon? See...I told you this week was full of them! *wink*

I don't have much to yap about, other than this card was easy and fun to make, and the song I'm listening to right now is awesome. The lyrics are below because I just couldn't resist sharing them. If you haven't heard of Ginny Owens, she's amazing. She writes most of her music, plays the piano, and is blind. Her stuff is awesome.



This card uses images from the new set called Can Ya Dig It, which will be available from My Favorite Things on Wednesday night. We'd love you to join us for the Cocktail Party on Wednesday, April 2 from 9-11 p.m. Eastern time. These always prove to be entertaining at the least...but come prepared to have a blast! We will also tell you how YOU can be the next MFT Guest Designer! You can find all the info HERE.

Stamps: Can Ya Dig It
Paper: Memory Box pre-folded card and cardstock, Watercolor Paper
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Old Olive
Accessories: Cropadile, Offray Ribbon, Pop Dots, Waterbrush & reinkers, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack


Call Me Beautiful by Ginny Owens

I've been waiting
For a hero who's brave and strong-
Someone to love me,
Someone to tell me I belong,
So I pretend I'm satisfied,
And I stand watching on the sidelines,
Till You pull me into the light
And say, "It's Your turn now,
Welcome to your life!"

And You call me beautiful,
And say You've loved me all along,
And You've always held the keys to unlock my soul
Oh You call me beautiful

There's a smile on my face,
And a brand new light in my eyes,
It's a new day,
And I've never felt so alive-
I feel as if I could conquer anything,
Oh thats what Your love has done for me,
And now all I want to be,
Is everything You want me to be-

And You call me beautiful,
And say You've loved me all along,
And You've always held the keys
To unlock my soul, But I didn't know-
Now I can finally start to live,
Take those chances I have missed,
Things will be much different,
Now that I know
You call me beautiful

The story is better than I could dream after all,
Now this is reality
To know You and to hear You call me beautiful
Call me beautiful-
Now I can finally start to live,
Take those chances I have missed,
Things will be much different,
Now that I know-
Now that I know
You call me beautiful
