MFTeasers! Spring is in the air, Love Birds! ;O)

MFTeaser LOVE BIRDS mel stampz

This card is my first ever MFTeaser card. It's a set that used to be available only as a kit, but soon you can get just the set... It's called Love Birds. :o)

February is going to be the biggest bestest release MFT has ever had. There'll be all kinds of inspiration on Kim's Blog every day at 11:00 AM EST (with direct links to all MFTeasers & a new featured stamp set each day!)

The monthly Guest Designer Challenge gives you the chance to receive next month's UNRELEASED sets (DT sample sets—no packaging or labels, valued at $50-$80) AND be invited to participate in our monthly blog hop, as well as partake in next month’s MFTeasers
