I “herd” today… January 7, 2008

that I could post some sneak peeks for you all to see of MFT releases.   There are 3 new stamp sets on January 9th for you all to see:  Be Mine (mini set), Punny Farm, and Happy Occassions.  My mouth dropped when I received these sets and I couldn’t stop thinking of ideas for these really cool sets.

Here is a sneak peak from the set Punny Farm:

  MFT punny farm card  Isn’t this so cute?  I love this card.

I found myself wanting to create a lot of things with this cow image.  And with a sentiment that states, “Herd It’s Your Birthday”.  That meant I got to stamp more than one on a card:)   I even restamped the heads, colored, cut out, and attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it a more realistic appearance.  Did I mention I love these cows!!!

Here is an upclose pic.  I was out a Michael’s one night and found these Karen Foster Farm Mini Charms and had to get them to coordinate:
