Love you...


Can you believe it is June 1st already? That means today is all about a brand new Farm Fresh Challenge at The Greeting Farm! As you know, a new challenge is issued at the beginning of every month over on the TGF blog and this time around it is...  'All About The Boys'. With Father's Day being celebrated in a couple weeks this theme is the perfect fit. But you don't have to be limited to Father's Day, you can ink up or print out any of the handsome Ian stamps from the TGF store and create any kind of masculine project that your heart desires! Playing along just might win you a $50 gift certificate!

For my card I printed out the cute RN Ian digi and stamped a heart, from the I Love Mom set, onto his clip board. By adding that little touch I knew it would tie in perfectly to this old eye chart sentiment stamp that I've had for ages. Now it looks like Ian is giving a very special exam to his sweetheart. ;) 

Alrighty friends, have fun with this one. I can't wait to see what you create!

What's up...

Hey there!

I'm still working my way through all of the cards I made for the Mini release... can you tell I'm a BIG fan of these little cuties? Today I'm back to the Mega Mini Amazing set and this time I've paired Anya up with the hot air balloon from the retired Fly Away set. Then I just added both to a card base I made using the blue skies cover plates from PTI to really set the scene. I think Anya must be waiting for her turn to take a ride up into the clouds. :)

Have a good one everybody!

An amazing day...

Good morning!

Since Friday's card featured the cute kitty from the Mini Remix Happy set I figured it was only fitting to share this card using the funny little puppy and mini Anya. I went super CAS with the over all design because I liked the subtle hint of the town scene behind this happy pair. I think they are enjoying the long weekend with a nice walk and maybe even a stop at an outdoor cafe for brunch. :)

Later gators!

Smile in a cup...


Today I've got one last card using the Mini Remix Brewtiful set and I borrowed the kitty from the Mini Remix Happy set so that Anya wouldn't be lonely. Because this little lady is getting her caffeine fix out of a regular mug rather than a to-go cup I figured she needed a comfortable setting to relax in. So I grabbed the Vogue Abode set from Paper Smooches and stamped up a mid-century modern living room for Anya to call home. It looks like she is just about to grab one of those books off the shelf and settle in for a comfy cozy morning. :)

Alrighty friends, have a safe yet fun filled Memorial Day weekend!

You are pawesome...

Good morning!

The deadline for the 'anything odd' Facebook challenge really snuck up on me but I was able to whip together a CAS card for it just in the nick of time. I've had the Tia and Fluffy digi printed out for a while and I figured this was the perfect time to get them colored and on a card. I returned to my tried and true background put together using different scraps of pattern paper which also sped up the card making process. I love the interaction between these two sweet characters 'cause it reminds me of afternoons sitting outside with my own kitties coming and saying hello.  :)

Ok then, time for me to get ready for the day. Have a good one!

Sunshine and rainbows...

Hi there friends! 

I decided to revisit the Magical Friends set for my card today. With the recent release of the three little supplement sets of magical unicorns and pegasus the one lonely pony in the Magical Friends set was seeming kinda left out. So I decided to make a tiny alteration and draw in her very own unicorn horn, which was super easy! Now she's not feeling left out from all the magical fun her friends have been having. As I colored her and made my card background using the new Sunshine and Rainbows goodies from Papertrey Ink, I was having flashbacks to my 80's childhood and all of the Lisa Frank folders and Trapper Keepers that got me through grade school. There's nothing like some bright rainbow colors to make you smile.  :)

Have a good one! 
Supply list:
cardstock- Papertrey Ink and Copic X-Press It
watercolor paper
stamps- The Greeting Farm (Magical Friends set), Papertrey Ink (sentiment)
ink- Memento tuxedo black, Tim Holtz Distress picked raspberry, carved pumpkin, mustard seed, twisted citron, mermaid lagoon, squeezed lemonade

Sugar and Spice...


So I couldn't resist inking up another adorable mini from the Mini Remix Brewtiful set for my card today. I had this piece of paper from the Doodlebug Under the Sea collection with the sugar and spice sentiment already on it so I let that inspire the entire card. Looking at this little Anya I figured that a Cinnamon Dulce frappuccino would be her drink of choice so that easily hits both the sugar, spice and everything nice. As happy as she looks you know that caffeine has started to do its job, LOL! ;)

Later gators!
