A Little Shimmer!

I'm very excited to bring to you the second day of March Previews today at The Greeting Farm.  Did you know that we are introducing a BRAND NEW character line to the Farm...our "BEAN" collection, and let me tell you the cuteness has only just begun!  :)
Let me introduce....

SHIMMER BEAN
  Her tiny little wings and that sweet little baby belly showing just makes her too adorable for words!!  
I created a Post-It Note cover using today's Sweet Stop Sketch 147
and stamped the sentiment on each Post-It Note.  




















For my second card, I colored sweet little Shimmer Bean with Black hair.  The sentiment that you see is part of the actual stamp, however I cut it apart so that I could use it a little differently.  Really simple card... a little black machine stitching (I'm still practicing, LOL) and some gorgeous Pink Sheer Box-Pleated Ribbon from the Ribbon Carousel.


 Do you want to win her?!?!  Sure you do!!  :)

Just leave a comment for me and on Jessica's Blog today 'cause there's a little Shimmer Bean surprise hiding on one of our blogs!  Make sure you go to the TGF Blog and let us know that you did and we'll announce a winner of Shimmer Bean tomorrow!!  
(You have until 11:45 pm CST tonight to comment and win)


Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
