Stella's here!



card by Amy Young

The Greeting Farm came out with the cutest new Sprouts, all designed by Amy. Followers of her blog know that she had preview giveaways of all four Sprouts which included a handmade card and tons of candy to go with it. Well.....I won Stella!! Yessssss! I love them all but Stella was my favorite. I think it's her hairdo and that billowy skirt.
She is a cutie!



The card and goodies arrived yesterday and it's the most amazing card I've ever seen. Her attention to detail, the embellies she uses, not to mention her coloring which is just fabulous! Even my daughter, who was scrutinizing the card up close said, "I like her lips" and it was then that I noticed a bit of sparkle, probably from a Spica pen. Just amazing! Thank you, Amy!


Stamps: Inkadinkado, Hero Arts sentiment
Cardstock and ink: New! Hero Arts Hues in Grass

At the other end of the spectrum is my simple, one layer card. I found some Inkadinkado butterfly stamps and upon close inspection, there are other really cute bugs in the set, too. This weekend will be dedicated to stamping up some boyish cards for the Cards for Kids card drive.

This card took a whole 5 minutes to make from start to finish, including drawing in the little eyeballs! Can you spot the angry looking caterpillar? (He's under the "hello")

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

  15. Hi Donna! I can imagine how thrilled you were when you received Amy's gorgeous card! I also received a Stella Rak today so I was just as thrilled as you were. Your card is really cute, love how you did it! I can't imagine me making a 5 min card. It would take me an hour just to plan how to stamp that bugger lol.
