à la modes, Preview #2

**Until blog issues are resolved, please press Ctl-F5 to “hard” refresh if you’d like to make sure you are seeing my latest post.  Thanks!**

Hi everyone!  The My Favorite Things team is back today to share samples of the second new à la modes set, Something’s Fishy.  EEK! I love it!   The two new à la modes will be available tonight at 10 p.m. EST along with the new WTG VIP.

That’s Just Crappie

Is she cute or what??  The set comes with the sentiment I’ve used here plus “Feeling a little green around the gills?” and “Something’s Fishy…”    I just had to go with the crappie one.  :)

I colored with markers and added some ground with pencils.

Along the bottom, I used a brand new Die-namics border die, Simply Scallops, which will be available tonight as part of the WTG VIP package and then not again until the release on February 1st.

For the inside sentiment, I used the “So” from “Something’s Fishy…” and then restamped the “Crappie.”

I’ll be back at 10 p.m. EST tonight for the WTG VIP hop and release!  I hope to see you then!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
