It sounds as though you had some great adventures, including top-drawer shopping! All of the felt I own is from PTI, but I've been curious about the Replenishments line that MFT is now offering. I've ordered the MFT card stock sampler and am looking forward to seeing how it compares to PTI, but I need to start using felt again (instead of just 'collecting' it, lol) before I can justify buying more of it.

Between all of your new crafting goods and your iPad (I love mine), there's no doubt in my mind that you'll be spending plenty of time creating and smiling in the next few weeks – enjoy!

Afraid I'm not one for doing things by halves! As you have probably gathered from all the blog posts over the years. ;)

I didn't manage to sample much of the MFT cardstock, we had some in the classes we did and it seemed similar weight and smoothness to PTI. I am just rather partial to the colour tones PTI does even terracotta tile now that I found it was a perfect "red" for some Studio Calico Christmas paper.... But the Bazzill card shoppe cardstock is just as good and has some fantastic shades... However, PTI soft stone and rustic neutrals... mmm lovely!
The MFT felt is a blend and not 100% wool so it will be easier to cut with other dies, I can't get clean cuts through my PTI felt using Marianne dies, but I have little to complain about there as the PTI felt colours I have are lovely (except the Pine one) but must say was totally surprised with the colour of hibiscus burst, it is almost the same as raspberry fizz felt that I already have and is a shocking pink not what I was expecting... not sure if I got sent the wrong felt or what, but I bought MFT bubbglegum felt as it was the lightest pink they had in the shop. It comes in sheets rather than rolls and you get a few A4-ish sheets to the pack. Lots to play with, just not enough time to do it! :( Including all my new christmas sets from PTI!
