Farm Fresh Friday - TGF

Darn Patriots.... ;)   Guess I'm rooting for the Steelers now!  

On to business!

The challenge for the Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Friday Challenge this week is a color challenge - turquoise, black, and any other color you choose.  I chose Cameo Coral from the SU! color family as my 3rd color and here is what I came up with:

I used Thursday from the Creeper Crew line at the Greeting Farm.  I paper pieced her clothes and hat with designer paper in Cameo Coral & Tempting Turquoise by SU!  Ribbon, brads, and glitter also by SU!

I decided to go through my all of my Stampin' Up! sets and made myself a promise that I'd sell at least 10.  I ended up setting aside 29 sets to sell!  I was proud of myself - it's hard to purge, but the way I look at is that these stamps should be being used and loved.  They are not doing me any good sitting in a closet!  So I posted them on Facebook and within 15 minutes, I had sold 17 of the sets and made over $100!  I was thrilled - since I'm not working right now, that money will help pay some bills this month and maybe I can sneak a little for a couple of the new Sugar Nellies or CC Designs images that I have been wanting... hee hee  Years ago, I would have sworn that I'd forever be dedicated to wood-mounted stamps... flash forward to the past year or two and I'm amazed at my obsession with unmounted rubber.  I have binders and bins full of yummy, beautiful rubber always within my reach, along with several sized acrylic blocks to mount them to.  I cannot imagine life without them.  hee hee

Hope you all have a great day - stay warm!  Peace.
