Thinking about you

Good morning...good morning!!
Are you off today? Do you have any plans?
Me? Hmm...It was so warm yesterday, that the boys actually started work on the backyard. 
Clearing out an area in the backyard, so that I can grow my vegetable garden. 
So excited, but still a ways to go.

Yesterday, I got some time to be crafty.  And sticking to my new years resolution, pulled out a stamp from the pile and went to work.  I pulled out a few actually, but those will come later!!
I've had this stamp for ages and my little sister is the only one who has used it.  So she has been well neglected and I feel bad.  That feeling didn't last long once I found a couple of challenge she would be perfect for. 

Here is The Greeting Farm: Laundry
Is she just not precious, sitting on that pile of clothes?
I had so much fun coloring her and doing a little bit of paper piecing too.
I flipped the sketch and The inspiration I used from the photo were pillows, blankets and some of the black and white pattern too.

I would like to enter in the following challenges:

  1. Oh Calypso, your card is too cute and love your coloring of that image. I wish it was too hot here so we could be outside. The temp as I write this is currently -9 F with a high today of -4. The joys of Minnesota living.

  2. Oh how cute, love the image and the super coloring of your image... That yellow just pops it right off your card....
    Ooh veggie garden, how fun and it's always enjoyable to eat what you plant....
    I have tons of cherry tomatoes that is growing uncontrollable and they fruit throughout the whole year...
    Enjoy your wonderful day - it's always warm here too!

  3. Oh, this is super cute!! I need to find my stamp of her and use her. I think I've only inked her up one time since I bought her oh, so long ago. Gorgeous colors too, love the black hints of red, and the pop of yellow. The pillows are gorgeous too. Wonderful job!!
    It's a nice 75-80 degree weather here in California, perfect for being outdoors too.
