Good Morning!

How are you today? I'm trying to get over a chest cold I've had for two weeks now. I feel like an elephant is sitting on my chest! Yesterday, after being sent to the hot and humid warehouse for work, I discovered that air conditioning is aggravating it. When I'm in the heat, I stop coughing. It's a pity my desk isn't outside in the nice warm sun. :(

Today's card is one I made last week for my sweet friend Mary. I've been dying to color up one of my Wild Sprouts for months and months now!

I've been so busy coloring in the Critters from TGF that I have a pile of uninked stamps a mile high! And that doesn't sit well with my conscience. So I decided to color up Jade from the Roll Call kit! She's such a doll! I thought she'd look great with some of that new paper from Basic Grey, called Olivia. LOVE this collection!!

I colored Jade with my reinkers and aquapainter brush on some Strathmore Bristol Vellum. I've mentioned this before, but just to be clear, it's not really vellum. It just describes the texture of the paper. I buy it from Michaels for about $7 a pad. Each panel was sponged with distress inks and machine stitched with black thread. The PTI Buttons were threaded with black DMC embroidery thread.

Something momentous is coming to The Greeting Farm! Look out for some BIG NEWS tomorrow! ;)
