A Very Special MFT-easer

Today, I am so excited to share a special peek with you. The two cards on this post are created with the soon-to-be released set Cuddle Up Carter by My Favorite Things.

This set has a special place in my heart because the proceeds benefit Euro-Peds, an intensive physical therapy program for children and young adults who have neuromuscular disorders, such as Cerebral Palsy. On of my dearest buddies, Carole Burrage, has a four year old son (Carter) who has mild-moderate CP so she selected Euro-Peds to be the beneficiary for this set. So, when you purchase this adorable set--you not only get some fabulous stamps--you also help this amazing non-profit organization. A percentage of the purchase price of each set will go to Euro-Peds in honor of Carter. It will be available on Wednesday night along with the other newest releases from MFT!

The first card I created is a fun birthday card for a special "little prince":
Materials used: Stamps-Cuddle Up, Carter (My Favorite Things); Memento tuxedo black ink; Vintage Photo Distress Ink (Ranger); sponge; Copic markers; Versamark; clear embossing powder (Stampin' Up!); heat tool; Designer paper-Pen Pals: Grandma's Kitchen (We R Memory Keepers); Jumbo brads (Oriental Trading co.); ribbon (Offray); circle punch/tab punch (Stampin' Up!); Cuttlekids die cut number (Provocraft); Spellbinders circle die; Cuttlebug (Provocraft); stapler; corner rounder punch (Creative Memories).

And, I also wanted to show you this adorable train image from the set because I am lovin' it so much:
Materials used: Stamps-Cuddle Up, Carter ; Dinomite (sentiment)(My Favorite Things); Memento tuxedo black ink; Real red classic stamp pad (Stampin' Up!); Copic markers; buttons (The Paper Studio); white cardstock (Gina K Designs); notebook punch (Stampin' Up!); Designer paper-graph (The Paper Studio); Playtime stripe: Playtime (Three Bugs in a Rug); staples; corner rounder punch (Creative Memories).
Yep--I TOLD you all the new sets are awesome. I cannot stamp fast enough. Tomorrow is release day and the MFT design team blog hop!
Thanks for stopping by!
