Olive You



Hi all and thanks for stopping by today.  It's day 1 of MFT Teaser Time!  Brace yourself for 7 full days of teasers to get you primed and ready for the release on April 3.  There are so many cute things coming your way!

We are starting things off with the matriarch of MFT, Who's that Girl.  This month's set is Let's Grab Drinks



Is there a nurse in the room?  Someone needs to check my temperature!  I colored with Prismacolor pencils.  LOL  I feel so... retro.  LOL  I tried to get fancy and add some shading and color graduation, incorporating brown on the skin and grey on her dress to add to the deepness of the shading.  I was just winging it so who knows if it is "correct" or not.  The great thing about Prismacolor pencils is they are very forgiving.  


I "salted" the rim of the glass with some pearlescent Stickles I had in my stash.  I wanted chunky, but not glittery, and didn't want to deal with anything loose that I would be wearing for the next 3 days.  You know it happens.  LOL



I stamped this cute sentiment on the Wine Glass Charm Die-namics from the new Let's Toast Die-namics and tied a sweet bow using Honeydew twine.



Good thing MFT has the Monarch style border in three sizes!  This one called for the Mini Monarch Border.  :) 



Salted, on the rocks please.  



I finished off the inside with matching papers and the XOXO stamp.  





Here are the details about the upcoming release on April 3rd at 10 PM EST:
