Pitter Patter

It's day four of Sneak Peaks of the My Favorite Things December release.  We're so close to the release (Wednesday, December 1 at 10 PM) you must be dying in anticipation.  But I am just a little sad because there will only be one more day and then I go back to be just a regular MFT junkie.  Being on the design team is just so much fun.  It's like being Cinderella at the ball.  If you want to find out what it's like you could win a spot on the team by entering the "Stitch It Up" challenge (details here).  You have till 10 PM EST to enter.
My heart skipped a beat when I saw this stamp.  I am still drooling over it.  I LOVE IT!!!  I know I've been saying I love every stamp I've used in the Sneak Peeks and the fact is that I do love them all.  But I love this one best, just don't tell the others, it would break their little hearts. 
I'm gonna tell you why I love her best.  it's because she reminds me of my daughter Liddy.  Liddy is 16 but she still wears those hats with ear flaps (and we live in sunny Florida).  She travels to beat of a different drummer and I bet little miss heartfelt is marching to her own beat too.  "Heartfelt" is one whacky little girl (and I mean that in the most affectionate way possible).  She lives "outside the box" and doesn't care if you like what she's wearing.  She's probably got a bathing suit on under that coat.  Because she's nontraditional she's not going to make a pink heart for Valentine's Day.  Her favorite color is purple and she's making her hearts that color.   She's out there defying gravity.  So isn't the Basic Grey "Sugar Rush" the perfect paper for this card, I love that the hearts are shades of orange, green and purple.   All the colored papers with the exception of the card base are from that pack.  The image was stamped on the Blending Card by X-press It paper and colored with copics.  Did you spot the new die-namics "Dainty Dots".  It's so versatile.  I punched it out and then put it on 3 thin panels behind my image.  That was quick and easy and looks like a million bucks.  You could dress the dots up by putting some bling in the centers, or you could weave a ribbon or baker's twine through them.  I used MFT hot fix crystals on the nesties so I left the dots naked.  What you may not be able to see is that the dot panels are raised up on dimensionals, the nesties are also raised up and lastly Heartfelt is cut out and popped up on dimensionals. 
There are two other stamps being showcased today.  If it's after 11 AM you can pop over to Kim's blog for links to all the DT's blogs.  You should leave some love because there will be prizes for two people who leave comments. 
So here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things "Heartfelt"
ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
paper - MFT Blending Card by X-press It for image; Basic Grey Sugar Rush everything else
miscellaneous - copics, nestibilities, MFT hot fix crystals, MFT die-namics dainty dots; Stampin' Up corner punch

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you'll come back again.  Oh, by the way, did you think I was kidding about my daughter and the hat?  Here she us in one of her Elmer Fudd hats.  And no it wasn't taken last winter, it was taken last month!  She is one whacky kid.
