The Greeting Farm Wild Sprouts Reeta


Hi Friends!! Gosh, I'm falling behind on life and it's just Tuesday. Remember that "To Do List" notebook that I created last week? Well, wanna hear something ridiculous? Well, I misplaced it already. I wanted to use it but I can't find it. LMAO!! Where the heck did I put it!! I can't believe I already lost it.

A guest came over on short notice on Friday and I went into ultra-cleaning mode but when I'm in that mode, I don't keep track of where I put things. . .unfortunately, my notebook was one of those things that I didn't keep track of. I looked for it this morning and I don't know where it's at. It's so annoying!!!

Anyway. . .enough complaining. I created this card yesterday. Let me introduce the Greeting Farm "Reeta". She's another image from the Wild Sprouts series. Okay, she's adorable. . love the kitty too!!

The Greeting Farm is also selling a designer paper pack called "Sunny Glen". The papers are so pretty. The dp on this card is one of the papers in the Sunny Glen pack.

I colored Reeta's with Prismacolor pencils. I didn't do a very good job with my coloring. LOL! It wasn't blending very well! Sometimes I do well with Prismacolor pencils but sometimes, I don't. I think it has to do with my patience. I found that using the pencils take longer than Copics so I tend to get impatient with having to blend the colors.



I decided to work on the inside of the card. Nothing major. Did you know that postage stamps have increased in cost? It's now 44 cents so I didn't want my card to be too heavy. It's unbelievable how expensive postage is now.

Anyway. . .I'll probably post another card later today. I have a few cards waiting in the wings.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!!

To do: Find 'to do' list.

You sound like me!! I come across lists that I misplaced weeks ago. And, then I look at it and go, "well that didn't get done, and that didn't get done....."

Don't forget to take a deep breath. Sounds like you are busy!

I LOVE this card!! I think you did an exquisite coloring job. My prismas are sadly neglected, too. But seeing how beautiful your card is has inspired me to get them out!

sweet card! love the coloring... what will TGF come up with next! I can't keep up! I never seen prima pencils...are they easier to color with? maybe I should invest in some of those since I don't seem to be too good with blending with copics =) hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!

Rita said...

I'm luvin' your 3D cards Maria & this image is awesome, so darn cute!!! I hate when I misplace something, I usually stop everything & spend (or waste is more like it) an hour or more looking frantically for the stupid thing then give up on it & my project & wait till the next day & try again, I usually find it the second time around!

How very cute and charming.

Cami said...

This Reeta card just makes me smile! She's a cutie and I think your coloring came out very nice. Sometimes I think it's the paper I use with Prismacolor pencils. They don't blend well on PTI, but they do good on Georgia Pacific (WalMart). It's a very cute card!!! Hugs, Cami
