Farm Fresh Friday!!

Today is Friday- so that means a new Farm Fresh Friday challenge from The Greeting Farm!!  Today's challenge is FLOWERS!!  I am terrible with flowers, so this was a good challenge for me to step out of my comfort zone and add some flower-y embellishments!

Here's my flowers!

This is Wild Sprout Gracie!!  She is cute as a button!

I used the Die-namics Flower and Leaf Trio from My Favorite Things.  

Now head on over to The Greeting Farm's blog for all of the details, and link up your creation today!!

Valentine Anya

There's a fun post over at The Greeting Farm's blog, about the newest member of the digi family! 

Check it out!!

Feeling a little fairy from Some Odd Girl

In case you haven't peeked yet, SOG has a fun set of fairies for the new clear stamp release this month!!  Today I am bringing you a look at a magical new outfit for our Kaylee's Closet image!!

This set has: a pair of wings, a dress,
 a wand, and the awesome sentiment you see
at the bottom of my card.

Truth be told, I am pretty sure her wings a facing the wrong direction.  I wanted to use this glitter paper, but had to stamp on the backside of the paper and then cut them out. (ooops.)  I also paper pieced her dress and the star on her wand.  (accidentally gave her Angelina lips  too.) 

She never gets old to play with, there are to many fun outfits for her!!

Hop over to the SOG blog to see some more inspiration from my DT!  You can also shop for her outfit here!

Double Take Tuesday!

Ready for a dose of Double Take Tuesday down at The Greeting Farm??  We have a fun sketch for you today made my one of our super talented DT members!

Here's the sketch-

Here's my take-

Used sassy little Friday Night from the Creeper Crew!

This was a piece of Echo Park paper that I have been holding onto forever!!  Love the bottle cap design on it!!  I also used a bottle cap for my embellishment!  She is a lot of fun to color!

Head on over to The Greeting Farm's blog for all of the details, and link up your creation!!

Time for Double Take Tuesday!

It's Tuesday once again, and it's time for a fun new challenge over at The Greeting Farm!  This time we have a triple color challenge- Pink, blue, & white!  I never use white, so this was good for me to step out of my "color box"!

Here's mine-

I used the adorable Sitting Wonderful!

Gave her a few freckles, I have kind of been hooked 
on them since I got brave enough to try them!

The patterned paper I used on this was some old school EP paper from the Little Girl collection.  I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to create the flowers on the white cardstock, and a flower die from MFT.  The "Free Hugs" sentiment is from the Flutter Heart clear set from TGF.

Now it's your turn to head over to the TGF blog to get all of the details and link up your creation!!

Fun New Fairy Digis!!

Today is full of some serious cuteness over at Some Odd Girl!!  Kristy has once again come up with the most gorgeous fairies!!!  Today kicks off a new digi release, look at what's in store for you!!

Meet Pixie!!

I know, right!!??

Can't even begin to tell you how much fun I had coloring her up!  I ended up using my Echo Park Xmas pad that had all of the blues and purples in it.  I wish I could have gotten a better pic, but if you look closely at her wings, you will see some dots.  I used my colorless blender when I was finished coloring to give her wings a bit of texture.  The flowers are a MFT die.

Head on over to the SOG shop, and the SOG blog for some serious fairy inspiration!!
