be released from the Greeting Farm.
All stamps will be available January 1, 2013.

I love the bright colors of this paper pack.
The sentiment is from Kelly Purkey...I thought it was a
perfect sentiment for this image.

Christmas card challenge week 5

Happy Sunday!!
I can't believe another year is almost over!!
How will you be celebrating?  Do you make resolutions?

This weeks challenge is Use Paint.
You can go here to play along.

Here is my card...
I used two different color paints and a paint brush to paint right
on my kraft paper.  I really like the way this turned out.
This is probably one of the easiest cards I've ever made!

I am hoping to get some crafting in later this afternoon.
I will be back tomorrow with a new post.

Release preview at the Greeting Farm

Hello and welcome to my blog!!
I am so excited to have been asked to be a guest designer
for the January release at the Greeting Farm!!
A secret that has been hard to keep...

These stamps will be available January 1, 2013.
There will be sneak peeks leading up to that day...
If you visit the Greeting Farm blog you will find all
info and even have a chance to win the sets being previewed. 

Today, I am previewing Wild Sprout Gracie...
isn't she sweet!?  I couldn't wait to ink her up.
For this card I paper pieced her hat and pop dotted
the flower (which you can't tell in this picture).
The paper is from MME - indie chic.

For my second card I used MME lime twist.
I wanted a brighter more vibrant card.
I am really loving this image.

I hope you are enjoying today's previews.
Now you can go check out the other girls for more previews...
Leave me a little blog love and some love for...
