It's all about Crafty Sprouts and The Greeting Farm

Hi All. Welcome to the Crafty Sprouts Blog Hop. Today is a special double whammy day because it is release day for the 3 awesome sets Erika has created for you as well as it being Challenge day. This weeks challenge is a sketch challenge (Sketch found Here) and it is sponsored by the awesome Greeting Farm.

You should be hopping over from ZENI

I was in charge of featuring the Halloween Set "Totally Witching" which by the way, I totally love that title because replace the W with a B and you get something else. Lol!! But since I find all of Erika's stamp sets awesome I couldn't stop there. So I created one project per set.

First up is, "Have a Cool Yule" featuring "Mistletoe Kiss" from The Greeting Farm. Aren't these skunks adorable?!!??!!!

Project 2 is for the "Let's Go Blog Hopping" Set featuring Timmy Candy Corn from The Greeting Farm. He is just the sweetest little mouse. When I saw this I knew he would be perfect for this sentiment. He's already enjoying the candy :) And this is another example of how you can manipulate your images to be something else instead of the intended. He is a Halloween image (I think, lol) but he worked perfectly for this card. **This card is my DT Sketch card. I flipped the sketch. Remember that you can flip, rotate, etc the sketch as long as we get to see some of the elements.

And finally, my project for the "Totally Witching" set. This is a Squash Book that features many Greeting Farm cuties as well as several sentiments from the stamp set and some sentiments from "Monster Kisses", a set from Crafty Sprouts first release. This mini book is intended for you to add pictures, journaling and whatever else you may want to carry around with you. These books make great little minis that you can whip up for grandma, auntie,etc.

This is front of the Squash Book (size 4.5 square)
I used the Deconstructing Sketch 19 for the lo.

I created a collage for you as to not bombard you with pictures. The top left picture is an image of the book completely open. The bottom square is an image of a pocket that I added. Inside the pocket are 2 tags for pictures or journaling. You may also add tickets or other bits of paper in the pocket. Also the "Beware Monsters Inside" and "BOO" sentiments come from the Monster Kisses set.

My favorite costume is one that I want to get for my son. Last year Pottery Barn had a milk carton costume and my son is allergic to dairy so I thought that if I could get it for him it would be so cute on him. There is nothing scarier than what you are allergic to.

Hope you get your project up soon. I will come back to check it out.
