New Greeting Farm cards

I have been playing around with the new release of Greeting Farm stamps this week whilst I can LOL and
came up with this trio of cards. 


 Using Primas 'Rochelle' collection and some bits and pieces from my stash. I made an awareness card in pink for my friend who found out she has breast cancer, so this card was too cheer her up! and I also made cookies too.
 Little sprout Gracie is next and DCWV garden stack was screaming at me to be used so I did a DL card out of centrua pearl card stock and the flower is off a wooden peg LOL, the butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch and I popped a resin rose onto her hat.
This is the set called 'sitting wonderful' too cute and I used the sentiment included on the card above and the sentiment on this is from Hero Arts. A bit of pearl trim and again DCWV sweet stack papers.
I coloured them all using Copics. I had too much fun and this is so good for my stress level right now!
thanks for stopping by!

DON'T YOU HATE IT WHEN YOU HAVE CARDS READY FOR CHALLENGES AND THE PICTURES LOOK OK AND THEN YOUR INTERNET DECIDES TO GET SICK AND IT TAKES 2 BROADBAND EXPERTS {lol} TO FIND THE FAULT AND THEN ANOTHER ONE TO FIX IT! SO I THOUGHT I WOULD BLOG THEM ANYWAY.
