MFT Previews, Day 1 – Wishing You a Purrfect Birthday

Welcome to Day 1 of My Favorite Things‘ May release previews!  Seriously? It’s almost May?  I just can’t believe it.   Regardless…away we go!  :)

Teaser PRIZES begin today so be sure to leave comments as you look.  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, May 1st around 7:30pm.

Today we’re previewing Who’s That Girl Plays Golf and Claire Keay’s You A-Mews Me.

As you can see, I’ve used You A-Mews Me.  Love the little kitty suit.  :)

I colored my tiger kitty with Copic markers, adding in the stripes by feathering in toward the center from the outside edges of the suit.

Along the left side I placed a die-cut strip of our new Squiggle Border and used MFT’s Pet Charms Die-namics to create a little cat-themed charm.

On the inside, I stamped my sentiment, a silhouette and used the little fish bones from the charm on the front.  (Waste not, want not!)

Here are the details about the upcoming release:

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