MFT Previews, Day 6 – Count Your Blessings

Hi everyone! I’m back today with another April preview from My Favorite Things!  It’s Pure Innocence day!  :)

This month we have Policeman, Policewoman, Dress Up Diva, Scientist, Magician, and a new little character, Mouse in the House.  This set is titled Do Not Disturb This Mouse.

Today I decided to play with the mouse.  Cute.  :)

I cut circles using Circle STAX, then stamped the image onto the floral circle.  I stamped a second time onto X-Press It Blending Card, colored the mouse, then stamped the chair and ottoman again onto patterned paper.  I used a clear glaze pen to dot over the mouse’s nose and the rivets on the ottoman.  All together, it reminds me of Grandma’s living room.  :)

The ZZZZZZ sentiment was stamped onto the smallest cloud from Cloud Trio Die-namics.

As always (or most of the time), I kept the inside very simple.

Here are the details about the upcoming release:
