Lawn Fawn Day!!!

Hello Fawny Friends!!!

Today is super, duper, uber exciting! So, just in case you're brand new to my blog (and seriously, why has it taken you so long to find me?!) or you're living under a rock...I love Lawn Fawn. Big surprise, eh?

Well, some of the DT girls on the Lawnscaping team were able to help make sample cards for Lawn Fawn to distribute to retailers around the world! Woohoo! I was like, sign me up! Now, we didn't design the cards (talk about pressure!) but I made 125 in one week! Wha??? Yup, that's how much I love me some Lawn Fawn.

Ok, so, Kelly (Mrs. Fawn), was SO kind and generous to the girls that she asked if we'd like to be featured on the Lawn Fawn blog! Um, yes!

So, here you go:

I went to a retreat with a few crafty friends and brought stuff to color! I wanted to really, really get some good color practicing in. I colored the first 2 cards with Copics and water color pencils for this last one. I still need some serious help with shading but hey, maybe bolder coloring is my thing! Yeah, let's go with that :)

I'd like to thank Kelly for being so awesomesauce and having one of my favorite crafty companies ever! True story. One time, I applied for a DT and the coordinator asked (super nicely) if I used other stamps besides Lawn Fawn and Hero Arts!

Have a great day!

kateri said... Best Blogger Tips

You are hilarious! Your cards are beautiful. I actually saw one of them posted on a blog. Like, "Go over to LF and see what they are doing with flowers" kind of comment and there was a picture of one of your cards. It really caught my eye because lately they have been designing with their critters so the flowers caught my attention. Beautiful cards.
