MFT Blog Hop: We'll Change the Way you Gift

First, thank you for all the wonderful notes and messages. I am doing great...had an infection in my jaw but it is being treated with antibiotics and the pain is GONE. Hooray!!! I had a great trip with my sisters and am happy to be back home with my kiddos and hubby.

Welcome to the My Favorite Things Blog hop! Two wonderful new label sets are being released as well as these fabulous jars to help make gift giving....SIMPLE! To help kick off the release, the MFT design team has created some fun projects with the jars. If you would like to start at the beginning, just backtrack to Kim's blog and follow the links to see all the fabulous creations the team has to share.

For my jar...I wanted to create a different type of gift. Although I didn't use one of the new label sets (I DID use it in the dirty dozen gallery this month), I did use another MFT set, Congrats All Around, to help create this easy project.

I turned my jar into a piggy bank...a fun way of giving the gift of money for a baby shower, a new baby or a graduate!

Mine is created for a baby....a fun way to help "save" for the future.

Here is a picture of the card and the bank together:


Approximate cost of this gift: Priceless! Ok..fine. $4 (plus the money you put in the bank!)

IN addition to the two new label stamp sets, the following new products will be added to My Favorite Things on Wednesday night (May 20th) at midnight:
*Stephanie Fizer Papers - School Collection digi paper pack
*Jars sized to fit label stamp sets (will be sold in packs of four)
*Eclipse Masking Sheet packs
*Adornments Shimmer brads (8-10 each pink, 8-10 cream, and 16-20 white)

To continue hopping along, visit my talented friend Cindy's blog!

Thanks for stopping by!
