Happy 2011/MFT WSC1

hi & happy new year! hope this post finds you well! we are back from an amazing New Year's weekend in the deep snow. we went to Bryan Head, UT- MAN i am SO glad we don't live in the frosty freezy-freeze cold anymore (we grew up in Maryland)- but it sure was great fun to visit Utah! it was our daughter's first real snow trip- so we went sledding, snowshoeing and tubing at the slopes. we enjoyed tons of hot cocoa and made snow angels & a mini snowman too! the hubs enjoyed some snowboarding & i had a blast in the hip-deep powder playing with my family! here's a couple quick shots i took of where we stayed-the Grand Lodge at Byran Head- it was so pretty! i'll post more pics as i download & edit them!

school started again last week, but of course, my daughter caught a bad cold/cough (such timing i tell ya!) so i kept her home for a couple of days- but even a sickie kiddo couldn't stop me from enjoying some Wednesday Stamp Club fun!

This year, MFT's WSC will have a weekly sketch to help make it easier for everyone to play! i LOVE LOVE the MFT DT sketches- they always rock- so i had to jump in! You can find all the deets and play along in this post on the MFT blog. PLEASE play with us- everyone is so fun & friendly at MFT!! You can find the MFT forum on Splitcoast too- if you're not a Splitcoast member, sign up- the inspo & resources are amazing!

OK- on to the stamping! here's my first card. i stuck to the sketch with this one and made a super fun valentine using MFT's Game Night Spinner Die & Stamp Set Duo & MFT's You Spin Me (additional stamps for teh Game Night set). the sketch helped this one come together so quickly! & the spinner really spins on this one- super cool right?!

here's a look at the inside- simple but finished:

paper: MFT fossil scalloped notecard, MFT pink bubblegum, hot fudge and wild cherry cardstocks, Bo Bunny patterned papers (crazy love collection)

i was so excited about this sketch, i made a second card! i've had this little PI cutie colored & all cut out just sitting on my desk for sometime, so i finally put her on a card! i thought it would be cute to have it rain candy hearts. i will totally be using this fab sketch again & again!
