Easter Blessings...

Hey there!

Once again I'm running behind this morning so this will be another quick post. It's been ages since I've colored up one of the lovely digital images from A Day For Daisies so I figured my current Easter card kick was the perfect excuse to print out this darling Chick in Pants and get her on a card. There is just something about this chirpy little chick in her frilly bloomers that tickles me and makes me smile. I made sure to color in the blades of grass nice and tall behind her to try and help sell her small size. I don't know about you but I think she looks ready for this Sunday's festivities. ;)

Later gators!

You make me smile from ear to ear...

Hello, hello!

I have to admit that I just realized Easter Sunday is this weekend and I have barely made any cards for it. It's certainly not for a lack of cute stamps just waiting to get on cards, for some reason I was thinking there was another week to go. So now I have to make some tough choices on who will make it on a card this year and who will have to wait. The super cute SY Easter Bunnies from MFT caught my eye, especially when I grabbed the SY Background Builder to help me quickly put together a pastoral spring scene. There is just something special about these sweet Stacey Yacula critters, I always want to hug and squeeze on them, LOL! 

Alrighty, well I will be back tomorrow with another Easter card... see ya then!

Hello Spring...

Good morning! 

My schedule at work and home has been quite busy lately but I made some time to color up another one of the darling Dreamerland kids from the February release for my card today. This one is called A Walk in the Field and I think she is just as cute as can be. The original image has her surrounded by a handful of these flowers that reminded me a lot of Grape Hyacinths but because I really wanted her to be immersed in the field of flowers I ended up drawing in a few more. I stuck with a very pretty, pastel color palette for this spring themed card and grabbed a large sentiment from Hello Bluebird to tie everything together.  

Well, sorry to post and run but there isn't much help for it. Have a good one!
Supply list:
cardstock- Papertrey Ink and Catherine Pooler

It happens...

It’s the 15th, and the APRIL RELEASE is now available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store. Our first set is called FEELS 3 and it piggy backs onto our previous Feels sets, featuring more adorable little girls full of all sorts of different emotions. Our next set, HAPPY TRAVELS has us all dreaming of a tropical vacation get-away with beautiful, sandy beaches and fancy drinks. Our last set called TINY PLANS SM is full of the cutest little girls ready to capture different aspects of life through social media!  

To celebrate our release, we are having a short BLOG HOP!! You have until APRIL 18th at 12pm CST/1pm EST to leave your comments on each Designer's Blog and The Greeting Farm Blog. The winner will receive all 3 stamp sets!

TGF Design Team:

This is a short hop, and definitely worth playing along! Of course, if you can't wait for the hop to be over, you can purchase these stamps HERE.

For my card today I am revisiting the Feels 3 set because when I was pairing up and stamping out all these little characters, these two in particular captured my imagination and tickled my funny bone. The looks on their faces brought to mind the misfortune of getting splattered by bird poo and once I saw that there was no un-seeing it so I just had to translate that vision into a funny card. Don't ask me why they are still hanging out under those birds but it looks like another accident is about to happen. ;)

Alright, I won't keep you any longer. Enjoy the hop and have a wonderful week!

The best thing about memories...


So very quickly, I'm wrapping up my new Stamping Bella release cards with this one featuring the Tiny Townies Ring Around The Rosie which is also available at 7 Kids as well. These three sweet friends are so much fun to color, I had a great time creating different prints and patterns on all of their clothes.

What were we thinking...

Howdy folks!
Did you see that 7 Kids just got in some of the new Stamping Bella release? All three of the fun Tiny Townie stamps are in the store now and for my card today I'm featuring the Tiny Townies Playing Hopscotch. The grade school I attended had permanent hopscotch games painted onto the asphalt outside and I can remember spending entire recesses playing it with my friends. So of course I was inspired to color a school off in the distance when I was working on this scene. They definitely look like they are having a carefree afternoon with nothing on their to-do list but get back to class when the bell rings. That's where the sentiment that is included with them really comes into play and is way more relatable than I would like to admit, LOL! ;)

cardstock- Bazzill and Copic X-Press It

Smiles across the miles...

Hey there!

We've made it to the third and final day of April previews at The Greeting Farm and we are wrapping things up with the Tiny Plans SM set. Just like the first two Tiny Plans sets, this one includes 12 brand new cuties and these ones are perfect for planning out all your social media tasks and scheduling. Not into the whole planner thing? No worries, I'm strictly a card maker myself and there is plenty of fun to be had with these tiny girlies, especially when you pair them up with each other or other stamp sets. For my card today I paired three of these social media mavens together to create a scene celebrating all of the wonderful online friendships that we form in this awesome hobby of ours.  :)

Ok, time to head on over to the TGF blog for even more Tiny Plans SM fun from myself and my fellow Farmers. And don't forget that the entire release will be available for purchase on Monday the 15th, as well as a chance to win all three of the April stamp sets by participating in the blog hop!
