Wild Sprouts Max and Zoe and a winner!

Good Saturday morning fellow stampers!
First things first, let's get to what you've all been waiting for... the candy winner. picked a low one and apparently birthdays are lucky because CraftyJenn is our big winner! Congratulations Jenn! :)
Email me at with your mailing addy and I will get your goodies out to you on Monday.
Secondly, after reading the comments on yesterday's Sprout post I was sad to see some of you getting discouraged about entering your own designs. Please don't be. I can draw. It's just something I've always been able to do. I can't sing, I can't dance and I can't do math problems in my head... we all have our gifts BUT this challenge isn't even about the drawing. It's about sharing your ideas. Even if drawing isn't your gift you may still have the winning design idea so enter the challenge! :)
As for me I'm gonna keep playing with them because this is way too much fun. I was on a role yesterday and got these two on cards and the bonus... both are for challenges! Max is this week's Farm Fresh sketch challenge and Zoe is for the Diedrich Dares. :) I gotta say, I love how Max came out so I think I might as well enter him as one of my three today... hope I don't change my mind later.
Meet Max.
Max is a curly haired cutie who is always up for an adventure whether that is the first day of school or a hike through the woods. He's got his backpack and he's good to go!
Meet Zoe.
Zoe is a total girly-girl and she loves dressing up in her new sundress. This little beauty has style and grace and she is just as sweet as can be.

Hi Amy! I so hope you didn't take what I said yesterday in a bad way - I absolutely meant it as a compliment! And right now I am so jealous of your brain - I am at a total loss for ideas! I keep staring at the template and drawing a blank! Hopefully something will come to me! I LOVE all of your Sprout creations, but I agree with you - Max is REally special! I am loving seeing them!! :-)Traci

Hiya Amy,
I too only ment what I said as a compliment of course I will still be putting in (well I already have) who could resist really like you say it is way too much fun :D
Even if you designs do not get made up do you think we could play with them some how anyway as I want all 4 of 'em and I am so sure you have loads more on the way. Oh and when are we gonna get to buy your fairy drawings you could make a fortune out of me alone!
