MFT Sneak Peeks #1~

Are y'all ready for this... (insert music from Space Jams here) LOL

It's time my MFT Lovin Peeps!!!  Day 1 of the MFT Sneak Peeks ARE HERE!!!!  WOOT WOOT!!!  I am SUPER Excited to get to play along this month, shoot, who wouldn't be right???  BUT... I'm NOT gonna babble and keep you tied up here... The whole list of designers who are sneaking today is listed over at Kim's blog... so make sure you follow along... TONS of eye candy!

SO, for my first card today I am using... wait for it.... wait for it.... FRED BEAR OUT WEST!!!!!!  **SQUEEL** OMGOSH!  I LOVE this set.  Fred grabbed my heart when he first appeared at the MFT Store and this guy... UGH!!!  He's NO DIFFERENT... but he's got a DEATH HOLD on my heart now!!!!

Is he not THE CUTEST FRED YET?????  OH... be still my Butts covered in Wranglers lovin' heart!!!!!  *grin*  I stamped Fred out and then created a mask with a sticky note, stamped some cactus' (or is it cacti) and then masked them also stamping several cactus'/cacti.  I decided to use Distress inks in Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick and Rusty Hinge.  I did the burned edge technique, which caused DH to come investigate my craft room from the smell LOL!!  I ran a piece of Terra Cotta CS through the TH Wood folder, wrapped a piece of Pine Feathers with some twine stuff that came in a MFT VIP Kit to give it that lasso effect.  Some SU! Vintage brads, on the corners.  I then decided to nail Fred's Wanted poster to the card and used some TH Mini brads in copper.  I added some Green Fun Flock to the cactus'/cacti for some texture and then some glossy pen to the spurs, badge and leather strap around his cowboy hat.  Perfect Pearls in White were added to his 'kerchief.  DONE!  WILD WILD FRED OUT WEST!!!!!


SO, for this next peek, I used the Previous Triple Scoot set, now available for purchase, Clearly Sentimental About - Time!  I thought I'd do up a scrapbook page, in NO WAY can I scrap like Melody but I thought that the sentiment matches the years that have passed with these pictures... DP from my friend Megan, so suede ribbon, the Layered Dienamics and some rolled mini roses with pearls in the center...
Now y'all need to skeedaddle to Kim's blog and see what the rest of the MFT Sneakers have done... I'm right behind ya... I can't wait!!!!! :)
