The Greeting Farm – August Blog Hop

It’s the 15th, and that means the new AUGUST Stamps are NOW available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store! The #COUPLEGOALS set features an adorable couple and is perfect for so many different occasions…birthdays, anniversaries, travel, Valentine’s Day and even Christmas. Our next two sets, FEELS 2 and TINY PLANS, capture all sorts of emotions and work well on planner pages, cards and scrapbook pages. And finally, MY KITCHEN features a boy and girl, along with all the elements to create the most amazing kitchen scene.

To celebrate we are having a short BLOG HOP, where one lucky fan will
take home all 4 sets!! Pretty AWESOME! Be sure to leave a comment on
each designer’s blog, and then head back to The Greeting Farm Blog to
let us know you completed the hop.

The Greeting Farm - Couple Goals 2 - Jessie Banks.jpg

I just had to colour these two on the chair up with my copic markers! I love this Couple Goals set, who am I kidding, I love all the sets!

I kept the background super simple with a couple layers of Moonglow from Daniel smith and popped the image up on top to call her done.

You have until AUGUST 18th at 12pm CST/1pm EST to leave your
comments. We will announce the random winner later in the week.

Getting your mojo back!

PP_Blog_InspireMeMonday_Badge_JessieBanks.png

Hey all, you know how sometimes life gets crazy busy, and just have no time and the mojo takes a holiday… Well that is what I have been dealing with, it is not very often I don’t make something for a couple of weeks, but that is what I have been dealing with lately.

One of my favorite things to do is paint up some florals for a card, and being on the Power Poppy team allows me to do that, which is great when I need to force myself back into creating.

So I printed off the Everything’s Rosy digital image and turned on the camera and took an hour or so to myself and just painted it.

By the end I found myself again, it was fun and I loved getting back into the swing of things, sometimes you just need to push yourself to make something.. anything!
