A Creeper Birthday

Tonight is our final night of peeks for The Greeting Farm, and I am having SO MUCH FUN with this month's sets!! I know I don't get to play with their stuff much, but it makes me SO HAPPY when I do!! I mean, seriously, SHE'S SO CUTE!!!!

Half of the designers are showing off the new WS Elena set, tonight, and the other half....including me, are showing off the new Creeper Abbey.....I LOVE HER!! Creepers have GOT to be my favorite of all the TGF stamps, so I was BOUNCING off the walls when I opened her!!

I started my card by stamping my Abbey on a X-Press It blending card, and then I colored her with my Copics. She was then layered with Blue Raspberry, Lemon Drop(both MFT), and Rose Red(SU). My paper is from the LilyBee Designs Happily Lost pack. My ribbons are both from MFT, my brads are from Michael's, and my spiral clip is from Creative Express.

"Don't forget to join us starting at 12:01 am CST TOMORROW on the TGF BLOG and on all the DT members' Blogs for our MAY RELEASE and DT blog hop!

For my card tonight, I combined my teaser post with this week's Crazy 4 Challenges Challenge. The challenge was to use three different papers, two flowers, and one button. I, of course, used other embellishments, but she didn't say we couldn't, LOL!! I stamped my girl on a piece of X-Press it Blending card, and then colored her with Copics, and paper pieced her. She is layered with Grape Jelly and Sour Apple. My paper is from the LilyBee Designs Picket Fence pack. I used some Honeydew Twine, MFT ribbon from the white collection, and an old MFT button. My flowers...well, I'm not very "user friendly" when it comes to the rolled flower dies. I put a brad in the center of them, but you can't really tell...they are supposed to be daisies...they look like white felt....somethings. The beauty of this is, I LOVE them, so I'm not mad at me...hehe!

Well, that is it for me for now!! Thanks for stopping by, and remember to head on over to Kim's blog for a full list of designer participating today!!
