Arg! It's the MFT Blog Hop, Mateys!

Hello! Welcome to the My Favorite Things blog hop. If you didn't start at the beginning, you might want to head over to Kim's blog so you don't miss a thing. You just might find some buried treasure at the end of your travels!

I created this card using the Ben Paper Dolls set:
I so adore this set (as I have said before!)....I am having so much fun making boy cards. (And my son, Ben, is loving helping me!)

I stamped Ben and colored him and then stamped his pirate outfit and colored that and placed it on top of the boy. I used the adorable bird stamp from the set to perch on top of the treasure boat (a Quic Kutz die).

I stitched the little path with some embroidery floss and added a die cut X to mark the treasure.

The sentiment is from Going Places (MFT).

Materials used: Stamps-Ben Paper Dolls, Going Places (My Favorite Things), Weathered (SU!); ink-memento tuxedo black, olive, choc chip (Stampin' Up!), Vintage Photo distress ink (Ranger); cardstock-red, caramel, blue, chocolate chip (SU!), white - Pure luxury (Gina k Designs); Copic markers; hemp (SU!); treasure boat (Quic Kutz); Cuttlebug tag die; Cuttlebug (Provocraft); corner rounder punch (Creative Memories); Cropadile.

**If you want to see some more treasures, head on over to the amazing Susan's blog where she is sure to delight you with her mad skillz!**

And don't forget: My Favorite Things release party is tonight (Wednesday, April 1st) from 9-10 PM EASTERN. This month there are 4 new sets being released! Head over to the MFT forum HERE to find out all the details and to find out how YOU can be the next MFT Guest Designer. We hope to see you there on Wednesday night.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

I am sorry, that has interfered... At me a similar situation. I invite to discussion. [url=http://cgi3.ebay.fr/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewUserPage&userid=acheter_levitra_ici_1euro&acheter-levitra]achat levitra[/url] I think, that you are mistaken. Let's discuss it.
