Playing with MFT Sketches

I finally got a chance to play along with this week's MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge yesterday, but didn't get to take the photo until this afternoon...so here you go! My VIP kit arrived yesterday, and I was so excited to get to play with it (of course, I should have been cleaning the house - oh well!) I knew I wanted to make a card for my Julia Bug...just a little something to slip to her sometime to let her know I love her.

I love this new MME 6 by 6 paper pack - such fun bright colors!! It was fun deciding which patterns to use for the outfits...and then matching to my SU! papers. Of course for my piecing I used all I learned from Joanne and pieced in layers, edging everything with dark grey (that way it doesn't look as bad as black would if I mess up a little!) I added a heart (from the hearts a plenty Die-Namic!) and a button with some MS bakers twine, along with a slightly re-oriented sentiment flag from the sketch.

I finished off the inside with another of the fabulous sentiments from this set and some more dienamics. I remember reading this book to Julia when she was little and always getting choked up (especially at the end when the little boy, now grown, comes back to rock his mother!) I hope she likes her card!


  1. Jana, your card is beautiful inside and out. I love that book the sentiment is from. I got all verklempt every time I read this to my kids when they were little.
    Hugs and smiles

  2. Such a sweet and beautiful card! The paper piecing looks amazing. And, I just know Julia will love it!!!

  3. OMG that book KILLS me.... :`(

    LOVE the card!!!! Such fun patterns you picked too!!!


I love reading your comments, thanks for leaving me some love!
