A Christmas Sprout and Sneaky Peeks!



A few months ago, The Greeting Farm held a contest to design a new "Sprout" character. There were a lot of amazing entries and some pretty talented people out there. The winner was Kim Yu and her design was turned into rubber. She named her Sprout "Sassy Suzi" and dressed her in a long fur trimmed coat and gave her a cool hairstyle!

I bought Suzi last week, during TGF's release and made this Christmas card for an older teen. Although it's hard to see, I lined up all the sentiments from a MSE stamp set and stamped them as the background and made my own patterned paper.

Stamps: The Greeting Farm, My Sentiments Exactly
Cardstock: Gina K, Stampin Up
Ink: Memento, Papertrey Ink
Other: Copics, Assorted Nestabilities dies, snowflake buttons,
Sizzix embossing folder, pop dots


And come and join Hero Arts all this week for sneaky peeks and reveals from their 2010 catalog! In the evening they'll reveal that morning's peek and be sure to wear a bib because you'll definitely be drooling! Contests and prizes galore! There's even a blinkie contest going on along with their weekly challenge. Are you excited yet? Then head on over and join the fun and excitement of their new catalog reveal! See you there!

Big hugs and thanks to Vera Rhuhay for kindly helping me put the blinkie on my sidebar. You are a techy genius, Vera!
