Go Green with MFT

The kids have been working on Math and Reading, so I got to play. Oh, I love it when that happens ;) I decided to play along with the My Favorite Things (MFT) blog challenge to use recycled items and the color green. What a fun challenge! My recycled items are my cardboard panel and the green raffia ribbon. I grabbed the cardboard from a box in the garage, and the ribbon came from a little bag of candy my mom had gotten for Christmas. I chose to use my Cool Yule set from MFT, and just mask two of the phrases to come up with the 'Think Happy' sentiment. Naturally his scarf is paper pieced. . .which is so fun to do with all MFT sets!
Stamps: Cool Yule (MFT)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: Scallop Fossil (MFT), Neenah Solar White (CDS), Basic Grey Sugar Rush & Origins, cardboard
Accessories: Copics, White Sparkly Fluff, dimensionals, green raffia ribbon

Thanks for stopping by today! I seem to be on a roll with posting. . .hopefully that will last ;D
