Lucky me!


My winning streak got a little longer when I found out that I won a not yet released digital stamp from The Greeting Farm. The newest Hope and Grace image is called "Rain, Rain" and she is such a cutie!

Marie sent the image to me this morning and I wanted to color her right away. I've always wanted to make an easel card and followed this great tutorial by Lysa on the In Style Stamps blog. I can see why it's so popular--easel cards are fun and quick to create! Thanks, Lysa--it really was easy peasy!




Rain, Rain will probably be offered to the public sometime soon, but for now I'm thrilled to know that myself and four other people are the first to own her. Thank you, Marie!






Stamps: The Greeting Farm, My Sentiments Exactly
Ink: Versafine, Colorbox
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink
Paper: Sassafras Lass
Other: Copic markers, Nestabilities, Basic Grey pearls, Glossy Accents,
Liquid Pearls, pop dots
