MFT Creative Olympics Event 1- Stamping Slalom: Kitties Hard at Work Card

Hello and welcome! Since the Olympics are in progress, My Favorite Things is hosting the Creative Olympics.

Medals and prizes will be awarded later this week. I’m probably one of the last entries as it took me a while to finish up…. let’s just say my plane arrived late. lol! But even with jet lag (aka migraine head), I managed to get in on the action. yay!

Event 1 is the Stamping Slalom at the Olympic Stadium (MFT blog)…. a test of creativity in combining images from three different stamp sets. I came up with this humorous card:

I just think it’s too funny that the lazy cat is watching TV (probably the Kitty Olympics) where her buddy is hard at work playing with a ball of yarn! lol! Now all I need is a great punch line for the inside. Got any ideas?

MFT Camp Create – Fantastic Foiling – Thanks for Backing Me Up Card

Hello, patient peeps!

About as soon as my computer was up and running, I was down with a two week migraine followed by a stomach virus, so it’s been a while since you’ve heard from me. I’ve been slowly putting together some cards from the second session of My Favorite Things Camp Create.


I haven’t felt up to posting them, so now you’re going to get a batch of posts today as I try to catch up. Thanks for your patience!

The first project was Fantastic Foiling. I’m looking forward to experimenting with foiling in the near future, but wasn’t well enough to drag out my supplies, so I used an already foiled and embossed card and some shiny cardstock for this fun card for a dear friend:


I hand drew and cut a mug and a pencil cup and then doodled on them, made the pencils out of toothpicks and cut down a few Post-It notes to make a mini Post-It pad for the desk. I sure wish MY desk was that clean! lol!


Here’s the badge earned for this creative challenge:
