Farm Fresh Friday - Fluttery Floral Challenge

I worked on a new Farm Fresh Friday Challenge over at The Greeting Farm. This was the Fluttery Floral challenge. The rules were to use flowers and at least 1 butterfly. This is only my second challenge, and I love how this card turned out!

Birthday Greetings

This Monday I start my brand spankin new job, so I will have very limited crafting time. I've been busy during my last 4 days of freedom to craft as much as I can just to get my crafting fix. My sister's birthday is coming up in a week, so making her a birthday card was on my "to do" list since I hate sending late birthday cards when I'm currently ahead of schedule. I just know once I start working again, I'd probably forget or would run out of time. I am the Queen of Procrastination! lol I used the Susie Surprise stamp from The Greeting Farm for her card. I thought it came out really cute, I'm sure she'll love it.

Farm Frsh Friday's - Believe

Wow, I am so excited! I finally participated in my very first Farm Fresh Friday Challenge over at The Greeting Farm's blog. I've always seen and missed the challenges every time they came up. I finally sat down and completed it in time :)

Here's the layout for the challenge:

Finally! Here's our first official picture of the new sold sign. Last month we picked out the lot we wanted in a new and very cute neighborhood in Katy. We then put our deposit down, picked out our upgrades we're adding to the house and picked out our options we can customize in our house that the builder has given us. We just turned in our loan paperwork this week and everything is moving right along. I am so excited and I can't wait till they start to break ground and actually build! We'll be meeting with the contractors in mid -August to discuss the whole build process and to get more details then. :)

The Greeting Farm Fun!

I've recently discovered hidden feelings that I'm lacking creativity. My Etsy Shop has been busy with sales, but it hasn't been fulfilling my creative needs. Crafting has always been my outlet, and with my nomadic lifestyle within the past 5 years, I haven't been able to fully unpack and get back to crafting. I want to explore and expand my creativity, imagination and make new things. I think I have finally solved that problem. I have found a NEW love for stamping. I say it's a NEW love, because as a kid I always had stamps, but lately I've been wanting to take it to a whole other level. I also love to scrapbook, and now I can combine the two. I found the cutest stamps from a company called The Greeting Farm. I've purchased almost their entire inventory, and I am ready to stamp away! ;) I still have lots to learn about techniques, and I have questions on how to do certain things I've seen a some other TGF stampers do, but I am very excited. I've created 2 cards so far. I made one for my Mom and one for my Sister. I dropped them in the mail the other day just to say hello, now that I'm miles away in Texas.

Keep in mind, these are very basic cards. Most of my crafty supplies will remain packed until we move into our new house. I went out and bought some new papers and supplies to help get me started. I used the Panda Friends Set for my Mom's Card, and 2 Different Stamps of Anya from the Miss Anya Collection, and Rain Snow Shine. I colored in the stamps with copic markers and used random papers I bought.

The Anya on the left is supposed to be my sister,and the Anya on the Right with the Sunglasses is me... Cute huh! ;)
