A Gardener??! Me!?

I can't begin to tell you how unbelievably excited I am at this news!! :D

I've been a Greeting Farm fan since shortly after Marie started the company and when it used to be called Pink Poison! I saw an awesome pirate card on Jenn Muraoka's blog and had to find out who made the stamp. Needless to say, I've been hooked ever since. :) I'm really looking forward to being a part of a wonderful company and creating some fun things over the next few months! Thank you Jess and Marie for this awesome opportunity. :)

In honor of this HUGE news, I made this sweet and simple card!

No crazy layers this time around. And look Ma: no sewing (with thread anyway)! LOL This week's Weekend Sketch challenge #95 was an awesome one! I loved all the elements in it and thought it would work perfectly with the cute owl from the Forest Friends set. I used some paper from DCWV's Green Stack Collection. It works so well with this little guy!

I'm currently in a card swap on SCS with Kadie and Mary - both are currently on TGF's DT and I *think* I may have to case this card for that swap! LOL Hope that's ok Kadie! (Psst! If you'd like to join the swap, there's still time!) :)

Thanks for stopping by today!
