Hope and Grace -

I just couldn't stand it I was trying to not purchase any stamps this month - and well.... I just had to have these ;0) Hope and Grace from The Greeting Farm - Are they just precious or what?

Then I couldn't decided which one from the set I wanted to use first - so I made it easy and put both of them on a card! They are colored with my copics, and then for the sky I used my shimmer chalk and doodled the edges.

For the card I used a white card stock, and all of the pattern papers are from Making Memories 8x8 Spring Fling collection pad - love it, especially when I got it on a Target clearance last month for 2.48 - yep less than 2.50 for the whole stack! I inked the edges of the papers with a light green ink, the gel pen stitched the edges of the background leaf paper. For my flowers, this paper was just perfect colors for some felt flowers that were in my stash, I used a button for the center of the larger flower and mini brads for the smaller ones. The sentiment is part of the Hope and Grace set that I stamped on a label that I cut out of one of the solid papers from the collection with my Slice. I used jewelery spacers and mini brads to put it down and hung a heart charm with a small piece of chain.
I just love this set - these two are so cute - It sure is getting hard to have a favorite at The Greeting Farm... there are so many really adorable ones coming out, then all of the ones I already love! Guess that it is a good thing - more to love!
Today is MIL shopping day - a short one I told her to narrow down her list so we wouldn't be gone all day - yea right.... I bet we still are! LOL But I have one stop at Michael's on my list :0) I am still trying to find a couple of the new border punches I have been wanting -
Hope you have a great Thursday!
HUGS and-
