Emma says Thank You!

This is my very favorite digi girl, Emma from Fred, She Said! Isn't she lovely?! I always enjoy coloring her dress, but this time I went for the paper piecing with some DP from K&co, what do think?

I had so much fun making this card...summertime is so busy with other things that it was nice to sit and create! Our garden is overflowing nicely with sugar peas, and many beans. I just love pulling an onion or some potatoes out when I'm preparing a meal for my family! Aren't I just sooo Martha Stewart like! lol

Ok, I found a few challenges for this card, so here we go...
Unscripted Sketckes~ sketch.
Simon Says~ paper piecing.
Cute Card Thur~thank you card.
Creative Card Crew~ribbons.
Flutterby Wed.~use a flutter, buttons & ribbon.
Raspberry Ribbons~ribbon and circles (hope my buttons count!)
Color Dare~ pinks, greens & cream.
Papertake Weekly~my favorite things.
Pile It On~3 different embellies (ribbon, flowers, buttons)
Bee Crafty~a digi & things with wings.
How's that for making the best use of my stamping time!

So, those of you that have never used a digi stamp....are you ready to give it a go??? This Emma image is only $2.00! And in the set, you'll receive a READY to PRINT file...print, color, create! How easy is that?! Or print her out on designer paper and try paper piecing!
You should also know that Fred, She Said carries a few different Emmas to choose from along with all their beautiful sheets of digi flowers! And Tracey just posted some new images....I'm so excited!
But wait there's more.....I just love saying that!
There is a new FREEbie up for grabs on Tracey's blog, actually there are quite a few freebies on Tracey's blog! So have a look around!

Well, off I go back to blanching beans and making zucchini bread and cakes and.....lol!
Praying abundant peace, joy and love over you! Be Blessed!

oh Maria, this turned out so pretty! I love the paper! So, do you make the card and then look up challenges to see which one your card fits or do you actually look at all the challenges and fit as many as possible on one card? You just amaze me!
I'm also really impressed that you grow produce! I love getting surplus from friend's gardens!
