Like a froggy, ferny cabbage, the baby is unnaturally...GREEN!!!

Sorry...I've been listening to the Wicked soundtrack, and now it's stuck in my head. That and the Indiana Jones theme song, but that one doesn't have words.

I have a couple more MFTeasers to show you today...this time with the Congrats All Around set. This is such a fun set, complete with large circle images that fit in the Marvy punches, and little coordinating images for several occasions. My favorite HAS to be this little "burrito" baby.

I recently picked up some more Versamagic Dew Drops in pastel colors because they work sooooo well with my clear stamps. So I decided on a purple and green color scheme. One of my girlfriends is expecting a baby girl in September and these are her favorite colors, so they were totally inspired by her.

I stamped the "flower" in Spring Pansy on white cardstock, and punched out the center with my 1 1/2" circle punch. Then I punched the flower out with my Mega Scalloped Circle, creating kind of a do-nut. Then I punched a Super Jumbo circle of Plum cardstock, and then a 1 1/4" circle of White. The baby was stamped and colored on a scrap, cut out, and popped up in the center. To finish it off, I popped up the donut flower ring on thicker pop dots, so it sticks up a little bit more than the baby. I really like how it turned out!

Next I decided to make a card for Josh's dad, who just got a new puppy. I got out my Die Cuts with a View Pet Stack and went to work!

This one is pretty straightforward. Again, I used the Marvy Mega & Giga Scalloped Circle Punches, along with a 1 1/2" Circle punch for the inside. I thought the sentiment from the Friends Furever set was the perfect touch!! It is stamped in Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.
