Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels...Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles..

Good Morning, yall! Before I get to chatting, I want to say thank you to everyone who left a comment or emailed me yesterday...yall are so sweet! Big MWAH's all around! If you haven't seen it yet, don't forget to enter my Bella Blog Candy on THIS POST.

I have a couple of cards to show you today using the new Annie LaPoint images that will be available tonight from My Favorite Things. These are single stamps, and they have to be some of my favorite images!

 I had this layout idea in my head, and I thought it would be good for a simple little card set. I stamped the Rosemary and Chill Out images onto Georgia Pacific White Cardstock in Brilliance Graphite Black ink. After coloring the images with Copic Markers, I cut them out with my oval Nestabilities and cut a scalloped mat out of my Prism Suede Brown Dark cardstock.

 The green and pink background panels measure 3 1/4 x 4 1/4, and I embossed them with the Swiss Dots embossing folder, then distressed the edges and stitched around the edges with my sewing machine. Mount that onto my white card base, and pop the main image up for a little extra dimension and you have a quick and easy card duo with lots of texture.
I hope you like these...I had fun making them! I'm off to work, so don't forget to join us at the New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday, Sept. 3 from 9-11 p.m. Eastern time. This month there are SIX new sets being released, plus one from a new line at MFT: BCDzyns. It's sooooooo cute...you will love it!!!

*The Girl Who Wants It All special for the The September Collection, which is one of each set being released, except for the BCDzyns set, is $58.95.

Head over to the MFT forum to find out all the details and to find out how YOU can be the next MFT Guest Designer. Have a fabulous day, and I'll see you tonight!
