Love and Laughter

We’re on Day 3 of November previews with My Favorite Things!   Today we’re sharing samples using Clearly Sentimental about Abundance and Clearly Sentimental about Christmas.  Since I’m ready for holiday cheer, snow and decorating, I went with Christmas. 

I’m always a bit afraid when it comes to creating with only sentiments.  I prefer stamped images…that I can color.  But after giving this a bit of thought, I decided to pull out MFT’s Teardrop Tree Die-namics.  Whew.  Saved.  :)

I added stitching around my tree top and decorated with little pearls leftover from a picked-apart flourish.

I kept the inside very simple, using another sentiment from Clearly Sentimental about Christmas and a die-cut strip of Faux Crochet Border.

Here are the details about the upcoming release:
