POST 2 for today-scroll down for the MFT blog hop! 

OH BOY! I am so excited when I popped over to the Craft Critique today to see the review of My Timeless Templates© . The article is by Julie Campbell who is an exclusive designer for Cornish Heritage Farms. When I saw that she gave my templates such a wonderful review my heart just leaped! I was so NERVOUS!

This was a huge leap, and I put SO much work and time into them every month, as does Nichole & the amazing PTI Design Team, so to see other people feel creative, and actually find themselves making affordable gift packaging (especially with the economy right now) is the best thing in the world to me. I love getting emails from people who were never even able to make any 3D items and now they are! It truly makes my day 😀

PLEASE READ HERE!

I hope you leave a comment if YOU have tried the templates too! No excuses! We have 2 FREE downloads for you 😀

Thanks for letting me share-and Julie YOU ROCK! Thank you for such a nice review 😀

Some bunny is thinking-Blog Hop

Dec 2, 2008 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards

Stop by the release party to win prizes, see some MFTeasers of the new sets and find out how you can become MFT’s next Guest Designer! Hope to see you there!

So let me share my little goodie for today.

Im a bit sad, as I have the flu-or some sort of nasty bug that has totally put me out of commission. Not to mention major Internet and email problems!! GRR!!! I wasn’t even sure I’d have Internet to post! Its so on & off lately. I hate being cut off from the world.

My planned project for the hop is only partially done 😀 Between kids, family living with me, appointments and holiday stuff I just didn’t get it done :C I hate being disappointed in myself. That does leave it for another day, I guess. On another note, I do feel when we do a Hop that Flopsey is the image of choice! LOL! It just fits 😀

So here we have Snow Bunny Flopsey

I love these colors-Caribbean, berry sorbet, and spring moss, and had to use them in my card. I wanted warm and cool colors. I love the shimmery snowflakes all over, on the various punched circles. Just too fun. I love him holding the coffee cup. Warms me up.

I used markers to color my sentiment with co-ordinating colors. Then pierced a flurry trail.

Just a fun card.

Speaking of fun-I always make so much stuff, then often forget to post most of it, because I made even more stuff! So tonight if you decide to place an order, maybe some of these will spark your interest in some previously released stuff 😀 (I know Im evil!)

How about a Tip-sy Tini?

I made this card using the Merry Christmas?set. Its a really cute set, and I am loving this image!! I just layered some patterned paper by Imaginisce 😀 It seems to be on every holiday card I make this year! LOL!

Next up is a bag of chives!

This was a quick bag I altered with Annie LaPoint Chives ,when this image was released. Its very 3D and layered on a acetate layer that was stamped with a dotted diamond bkgd from CHF. The textured paper is from Core-dinations-in Lilacs I believe.

Pretty sinple way to dress up a plain bag. I love doing that 😀

SO that is all for me-hop on over the the next blog, and enjoy the projects!! You are almost done!

Till tomorrow.

Projects of the month-great gifts under $2

Dec 2, 2008 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards, Home decor/3-D items

I am sorry this is late! Im really sick today, and up unitl an hour ago could barely get off the couch. Still feeling awful- but wanted to point you to 2 of my Projects of the month! Both for Lizzie Anne Designs.

Also be sure to check out their retiring list! Some of my faves :C but they are 40% off, when they go in your cart! WOW! Pretty cool deal.

Prior to posting this I didn’t realize how much I LOVE the Chocolate Covered Pretzel Stixs from Archer Farms! (Target Brand) I love the new Pretty Papers. Then also didn’t realize how much I use my nestabilities for gift packaging! LOL!

Anyway-here are the photos of my projects-maybe it will inspire a nice quick gift for that someone on you list you didn’t want to forget, but couldn’t afford to go all out for. Each project has 4 pretzel stix (people like pre-wrapped stuff) and you can get 2 1/2 projects with one container. So a little under $2 per gift!! Considering the Pretzels are $3.99 (not on SALE!)
