Hi everyone!  Welcome to the very last day of February teasers with My Favorite Things!   Tonight at 10 p.m. EST all the fab/fun sets and Die-namics will be available for purchase!  Before the release, we hope you’ll join us in the MFT Member Forum for some fun chatter, more samples,prizes and the announcement of our next Guest Designer!

Today is the last day of Teaser prizes so be sure to leave comments as you look around. Two winners will be randomly selected from today’s posts, one each from two participating blogs.  Each winner will receive one of the new featured stamp sets!  Winners will be announced during the Release Party tonight as well as notified via email.   

Today we’re previewing My How You’ve Grown (WTG) and Clearly Sentimental about Parenting.

Always Watching You

My card uses Clearly Sentimental about Parenting.  The layout (and style) was inspired by one of Melissa Phillips’ masterpieces.  (Her work is so elegant, so beautiful.)   I decided to (attempt) a vintage/elegant style… with a somewhat scary quote.

Yes, you are always being watched.  Isn’t that comforting?  lol.   And not only are our children always watching us, but they’re always watching everyone else as well.  We have had battles about licking dinner plates, burping, leaving clothes all over the floor (no matter the room), the use of certain words and phrases…  (I’m not mentioning names to protect the guilty. The guilty visit my blog.  lol.)  We could all add to that list and never stop.  Parenting is a tough job (but so worth it).

The flowers I used here came from Michaels.  There were six in a pack (four in this print, two in another), all the same size.  I wanted a smaller flower on each side of the bigger one so I cut one of the flowers in half then rounded  down the shape to resemble a smaller blossom.  The cut side is tucked under the larger flower so noone will ever know.  (Well, now everyone knows because I just told the world-lol).  I also replaced the center pearls with buttons.

The flourish was split to make room for the flowers, and all paper edges were sponged with distress ink.

As I mentioned earlier, the release is tonight at 10 p.m. EST, as is our Release Hop and Shop.  Before the release and hop from 8-10 p.m. EST is the Release Party in the MFT Member Forum at SCS.  We hope you’ll stop by!

Thanks so much for visiting!  I’ll see you tonight!
