Gettin' Sketchy with Stamp Fairy

A great sketch this week at Stamp Fairy, Gerda always does awesome work. I followed this one pretty closely, and I had a bunch of fun colouring and cutting out carrots for the background. Of course the kids wanted to help, so it's a good thing I printed lots! There is some sparkle on the egg, but it doesn't show up very well in the pic. I also left it with no sentiment, I wasn't sure where to stick it, and it's pretty obvious it's an Easter card!
If you haven't already been, head over to the challenge blog and check out what the DT have done with the sketch, wonderful things I'm sure. And if you need some Stamp Fairy images (of course you do, they're so cute!) head on over here.

Some challenges:
Use a digi - Stamp Something
Easter - Fun with Shapes, Paper Cutz
Sewing - If the Shoe Fits
Bling - Frosted Designs (it's there, look close!)
No DP, Stamp a background - Stampin' B's (OK, not sure about this one, I used digi's to make my background, does that count? I originally stamped the background, but it looked to formal for the bunny, so had to change it up)
123 recipe - Paper Variety (1 cute bunny, 2 digi stamps, 3 die cuts)

Hi Emma,
Just wanted to say Goodbye and wish you well and lots of continued success! I will miss you all very much and it was sad for me to have to give up my role!

I have always loved Gerda's images and maybe someday I'll feel much better and be able to join a Design Team again in the future. I do hope the warm SUmmer Sun will help me to feel a whole lot better and I plan to continue to follow your blog.

Your cards and projects are all so sweet and it's been so fun meeting you ALL!!

So cute, I love that you used carrots for the stripes but I cannot imagine how long it must have taked to colour all of the images for this card. Hugs, Carissa

hi Emma...I love that you cut & colored the carrots for your background cs!! So clever & very cute. Your bunny is adorable too! Also, cool placement of your stitching.
