MTME Blog Hop & CTD108!!!

Happy Wednesday everyone!!! I have lots to tell you today :) ...so grab your hot or cold drinks and lets get started!!! Make sure to read it all the way....you don't want to miss all the details!!!

The fabulous ladies over at the Color Throwdown have invited me to be their Guest Designer for the month of September!!! Thank you ladies for inviting me :) I'm so thrilled to be hanging out with you for awhile!!! Please stop by the CTD blog for all the info and the sample cards!!!



I combined my MTME project with today's CTD108. Here is my take on it and make sure to read all the way to the end :) .......!!!




Before I tell you about my project...I would like to tell you all about today's MTME September Release!!! Lauren decided to celebrate this event with a BLOG HOP including some hidden treasures!!!

Each design team member is featuring a different themed house/Shoppe! You won't want to miss anyone!!!
Be sure to leave a comment on each design team member's blog today, because TWO of the design team members are going to be picked to have someone from their blog comments WIN a $50 Gift Certificate to My Time Made Easy ™ LLC !!! NO ONE knows which two designers are hiding the treasure, so don't forget to stop by each design team members blog and leave a little love there. Include your email address-so you can be contacted if YOU are one of the lucky winners!!! Winners will be announced on Lauren's blog on September 3rd!!!

Before you start hopping....here is some info about my house ~ I used the Mega Shop Around template. The chimney and stairs are from the Shop Around Accessories template. The stamps I used are from the Home Improvement and On Display 1 Sets. The door, windows, flowers, chimney and stairs were inked in Memento Rich Cocoa. The windows and flowers were colored with Copic Markers ~ Y21, R17, R27 and Colorless Blender. The roof was created with some MTME Digi Construction Materials Paper and I finished it off with some Satin Brown Ribbon. I also added two little brown fences on each side of the house. I used my cricut and the digi version of the Home Improvement and made the fence just a touch bigger.

Lauren requested that we make a matching card with the house. Here it is mine......





I basically used the same idea from the front of my house and created a *Sweet Treat & Coffee* invite!!! I used the Homemade Card and Envelope cut file and the Sign it Stamp Set.

Hope you like this idea???

Thank you for stopping by today!!!  Now it's time to hop around for all the fun projects the MTME Team has created ~ LaurenKatie, Kristin, LesaPamStephanieTracey, Dawn, Tammy and Lisa !!!

See you again on Friday with another sweet MTME card!!! Hugs ~S~
