MFT November Previews, Day 1

I can NOT believe it’s almost November.   But that also means it’s time to begin previews of MyFavorite Things‘  November release!  That’s always exciting, right?

Teaser PRIZES begin today so be sure to leave comments as you look around.  (You can find direct links to all participating DT HERE.)  Each day, two prize vouchers are held by two members of our Design Team.  You’ll have all week to comment on each of the posts and all winners will be posted on Kim’s blog on Tuesday, November 1st around 7:30pm.  

Today we’re previewing WTG Gets Cozy with Cocoa.   I also used the CPS Sketch for this week, which is being sponsored by MFT.

This is one of my favorite of the WTG sets.  She’s just so…wintery.  :)

The larger of the two doilies in Dainty Doily Duo Die-namics was the perfect sized frame for WTG, and I used the coordinating Dainty Doily Border (currently out of stock) along the bottom.

I’ve pieced the entire image.  Even the gloves were cut from “patterned” paper in the MME Lost & Found Christmas paper.  I added bits of shading here and there using brown or gray markers.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment and some swirls from Sassy & Sweet.

Here are the details about the upcoming release:

  • You can attend the New Release Party on November 1st from 8-10 PM EST here in the MFT forum where you can enjoy fun, games and PRIZES!
