I called my momma, she was out for a walk...consoled a cup of coffee but it didn't wanna talk...

Happy Wednesday, blog friends! I hope your week has been great so far. Today is a fun day...it's a My Favorite Things Blog Hop! If you haven't come to me from Paula's blog, then you need to start at the beginning! {Click here} to get to Kim's Blog, which is where the fun begins. Are you ready? Let's go!

I have the most fun card to share with you today...I had a blast making it! I'm not only showing you a new set called Maid for You, but I'm also showing you some of the new digi-papers available from My Favorite Things! Check it out:
How fun is this?! I have been begging Kim for this image after seeing it on Christy's website, and my wish finally came true! Not only that, but they have cooked up the sassiest sentiments to go with it.

To create this card, I stamped the main image in Brilliance Graphite Black on the Summer Striped paper, then again on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White. I colored the image, and then I paper pieced the background to make wallpaper out of the stripes. Liquid Applique was added to the bottom of her skirt for fun. *grin*

The card base is another one of the digi-paper designs in the Summer pack...isn't it the cutest? I wrapped some red grosgrain ribbon around the card base, threaded through a small slit in the main image. Then I added the sentiment at the bottom. Very simple...I wanted the image to be front and center! I hope you like it.

Now it's time to head over to Susan's blog to see more goodies! I know she won't disappoint!

My Favorite Things is having a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday, January 7th from 9-10 p.m. Eastern time. This month there are FOUR new sets being released!

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. We hope to see you there on Wednesday night!
