A Get Well Sneak Peak for

 The Greeting Farm

Happy Friday Everyone!!!!!!

Well I have some Really good news and a little bad news for you!!!!  Today I am super excited to get to do my first Previews for The Greeting Farm Critter Crew, but because I miss-understood something I do not have the correct Farm Fresh Friday Creation for you today.

However a mis-understanding between me and Jess now becomes Oppertunity for you!!!  One Random Commenter on my Blog today on this post with my TGF Sneak Peaks for the adorable new Get Well Stamp Set being released on April 1st will WIN the stamp set.  So comment away and I will announce my winner tomorrow!!!!  Yea for You!!!!

Today's "Real" Farm Fresh Friday challenge is to use this color challenge below.  My card as you can see does not use that color challenge and I am sorry about that!!!!  However I bet you are happy because now a WHOLE Stamp set is up for grabs!!!!  This image below is part of that adorable Stamp set too!!!!  Now for the Color challenge here it is!!!!

So this week all of my DT sisters on both The Greeting Farm - Farmers DT, and The Critter Crew DT have sneak peaks for you using images that will be released on April 1st, next week.  Check them all out they are so talented and so creative they blow me away every week!!!

Now for my Card this week I guess we will call it a Preview for The New Critter Crew images instead of my FFF card (trying to laugh here :-) )!!!

I did hand sewing on my Creation for this week which you rarely see me do, but I was inspired to do it because my friend Jess sews on her cards all the time with her machine and since I am sewing machine illiterate I did hand sewing orig. I was trying to sew with thick twine, but it was not working so I got out some thread the color of twine and I cut four strands of it and sewed the four strands together to make it look thicker like twine does!!!  Hope you like it!!!!

I used SU! Card Stock in Green Galore and some old SU! DSP for the Orange. I added the hand sewing and the orange dew drops and the Nesties in Large Circles, Large Scallop Circles and Labels 4 for the sentiment.  I also tacked on some SU! satin ribbon I a have in Kiwi Kiss color.

Here is a close up of the Cute Get Well Bunnies colored in these copics:
Brown Bunny on left:
Fur - W00, W01, W03, W05,
Clothes Blanket and such: B91, B93, B95, V000, V04, V12, V17, Y21, Y28, E31, E35, YR02, YR09
Gray Bunny:
Fur - C1, C3, C5, C7
Cothes and such - YG00, YG03, YG09, YR02, YR04, YR09, B02, RV21
One last view of the card for some fun deminsion all images raised with excess foam and rubber from my TGF stamps and glue dots.
Now I have to go get in bed it was a long stressful day and I am tired now.  Tomorrow is my Birthday Yea!!!!  I am hoping since my Mom and her Husband arrived from Colorado to visit for a week today then maybe Marvin and I can go out to dinner all by ourselfs for my Birthday!!!!!  Keep your fingers Crossed!!!!
I hope you play in the real "Color Challenge" Farm Fresh Friday Challenge for this week and maybe if I have time I will try to get another card in the right colors done!!!!  LOL!!!!!
Have a Stampendous Friday Everyone!!!!

Beckie said...

It may not be the right colours but it still a wonderful card. xx

Paula said...

Have a very Happy Birthday - hope you do get out. Actually you did follow the colour combo - the red & yellow = your orange, the blue & yellow = your green...... anyhow the stitiching is superbly effective & I like your layering of the nesties. Would love to win some TGF as I'm itching to enter some challenges but haven't any & my printer's ink isn't watercolouring friendly for digis.
Thanks for an opportunity

~*Joni said...

I LOVE all things orange so this card makes PERFECT sense to me! HAHA! Love the oops Heather - it came out fabulous with your hand stitching and great details as always. Your colors are so happy! And speaking of, HaPpY BiRtHdAy sweetie!!!! Hope you and hubby get some together time, eat plenty of dessert and stay away from spicy. ;) Luv ya!

MarikaGabez said...

Beautiful card. Also I like the stitching on the edge. Sam is all too little use.
I hope to get some rest and you will be ready to celebrate ... and of course fingers crossed I'll holders.

Jami {sgtStamper} said...

Happy Birthday, Heather! I really hope you get your wish and go out to dinner with your husband.
Your card looks great! I am also sewing illiterate and had thought about some hand sewing so I was really interested in how great your turned out ~ Very even and pretty!
Maybe I will try it after all. :)
