Still looking for some winners...

Good morning stampin' peeps!

Before I get to my card for the day, I'm still waiting for a few of the Sweet November Zodiac candy winners to contact me with their mailing info... there are:
Aries- Helene
Gemini - Bobbi
and Sagittarius - Zarah

If I don't hear from these three ladies by Wednesday the 16th then I will draw new winners and announce them here on Thursday. As always, winners can contact me at pete_danger@hotmail.com and I hope to hear from you all soon! :)

Okey dokey... when I saw the Farm Fresh Friday color combo challenge over at TGF this week, I knew I had to play along. And not just because their challenges are always fun to join in on but also because I knew I had just made a card with this same color combo and it would be the perfect way to use up my scraps from that, LOL! Yes, they are more of the MME Stella and Rose but the aqua, yellow and spring green are exactly what I needed so why fight it? ;)
When I started thinking about the color combo my mind went to sunny spring days spent getting the garden all in order. So I thought about which TGF image would work best in that scene and I finally settled on Cheeky Howdy. She definitely looks like a girl who isn't afraid to get a bit of dirt under her fingernails, LOL! Because I didn't want to add any red to the design I decided to wipe away the cherries in her hair with a baby wipe, and while I was at it I also wiped away her winking eye and used my light box to trace one of Cheeky Shooter's open eyes onto her face. Finally I stamped up some garden pots and tools from an older Oriental Trading clear acrylic Garden Gnome stamp set to complete the scene I was going for. Doesn't she look like she's saying 'Oops!' after knocking over the flower pot? :)

Well, that's it from me. Thanks for stopping by and I'll see ya back here tomorrow!
