Rosemary down on the farm

Hello again!  This is my second post of the day and there is still one more to come this afternoon!  When it rains it pours on this blog!

I enjoyed colouring up Rosemary so much a few weeks ago for the Little Miss Muffet mid-challenge inspiration that I decided to give her another go.  She has such a lovely happy face!  I don't know why, but when I look at the stamped image of Rosemary, I always picture her in denim overalls, but she could just as easily be wearing pink or orange or green or some other colour overalls... maybe I will go crazy and try pink next time!

Today Shelby and I are sharing some mid week rubber stamp cards over at the Little Miss Muffet Challenge blog.  I'm really loving my new LMM rubber stamps!    Head over to the challenge blog to check out Shelby's gorgeous creation using Eleanor May Hatter!

Oooh and what did you think of the New Releases last week?  Aren't they adorable!  *Sigh* If only there was more play time in my day and less work time!!!  I'm hoping I will get a chance to colour up Raggedy Anne tonight... she's too cute!

Anyway, here's my card for today:















































I kept this one pretty clean and simple because I stumbled across some Pink Paisley punch outs on my desk and wanted to use them.  The papers are from Crate Paper and Echo Park (maybe).  The sun, cloud and little red cottage are punch outs from Pink Paisley.  The sentiment is a sticker from SRM.  The buttons are from Blooming Felt and the ribbon and twine are from The Ribbon Girl.

Here's a close-up of Rosemary:
























And here are the copics I used:


















I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Craft A Scene: Spring Flowers (I stamped flowers onto the green paper and added flower buttons)
Pile it On: Clean and Simple
CMC Copic Challenge: Anything Goes


don't forget you still have time to enter our current challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps!  The challenge theme is May Flowers (or Anything Goes if you use a LMM image).

Very nice scene and coloring on your image. Unfortunately, I don't see any spring flowers in your scene and so it does not qualify. NancyD

Perfect papers and the button in the sun is so cute! Love how this came out and the stitching really does finish it off. :D I'm moving my craft room around this summer and hope that I can get my sewing machine setup in the new space - we'll see! :D
