I have two posts for you today so please scroll down and take a look at both!
FARM FRESH FRIDAY!
There is a new sketch challenge in town at THE GREETING FARM and here it is pardner.
And here is my interpretation. Now, I have a difficult time following sketches, I think I have a severe authority figure "issue" even though I am a strict rule follower. My brain is always at odds with itself, it can be very confusing at times but it is great for seeing both sides of an argument.
Anyway, when I saw Lucky from the HELLO GO ROUND set, Clint Eastwood saying "Ask yourself, do I feel lucky?" popped into my cranium. And sitting right on top of my stack of unused rubber was WILD WEST ANYA.
On the inside, a lottery ticket was tucked inside the little pocket. Even though my kids are too young to officially get lottery tickets, they love getting the scratch off kind. They often get lucky even if it just for a free ticket or a couple dollars.
Also, don't forget to check out CLUB ANYA for the awesome new sporty digi stamps. If you have kids in sports you will not want to miss them they are adorable, but aren't they always!

SCRAPPY FROGS CHALLENGE
The SCRAPPY FROGS challenge this time is to use paper piecing on your project. As you can see from several of my past posts I often use paper piecing, I think it is a great way to dress up a project.
I initially had the idea to do a folding forest card and had Anya and her forest friends colored and waiting patiently to be used. However, in my blogging forays I saw THIS card by Shawne, an uber talented artist. It was what I had envisioned only better! She has some amazingly beautiful cards, please check out her BLOG. I used a boatload of pop dots to make a three layered card. This is a bubble wrap or hand delivered one to be sure, for someone very special. It is hanging on my wall right now because I love looking at it.
I think the SCRAPPY FROGS CHALLENGE BLOG is a best kept secret because they give away such great prizes. The winner is chosen at random and there haven't been a huge number of participants so you have a super good chance of winning.
Get in on the fun before the secret gets out! You can always combine challenges too!
STAMPS - The Greeting Farm, Navaho Anya, Forest Friends, Fly Away
