My Favorite Things

"Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens... " those were Maria's favorite things in the Sound of Music. 
This week at Stampin' for the Weekend the challenge is "My Favorite Things" and I thought it would be fun to write some new crafter friendly lyrics

Dew drops on card stock and glue dots on chip board
Bright patterned papers and embossing folders
Kraft paper panels dressed up with bling
These are a few of my favorite things.

My favorite technique is paper piecing, so for my card I pieced Sophia's dress.  I love die cuts, punches, bling, charms, baker's twine and machine stitching.  What are your favorite things?  I love seeing your work so don't forget to link it up to the challenge.  You can find all the details, the linkey thingey and the rest of the design teams work by clicking on this link.
