More Greeting Farm love

Here's a card I made for the Farm Fresh sketch challenge at the Greeting Farm. You could have knocked me over with a feather when it was actually chosen as that weeks winning entry!
I was so excited and honored to get that recognition... and the free stamp set I won sure wasn't bad either... ;)
I used a lot of different scrap paper, cut out with my Coluzzle (SO bummed to hear that Provo Craft isn't making these anymore, they were always my #1 recommendation when someone needed a small circle cutter.)to make the rainbow.
Using up scraps is actually one of the goals I have set for myself this summer. I want to try and make as many cards as I can using only paper from my scrap bags and using as many different stamps as I can too. I have way too many that haven't been inked yet and that just makes a stamp sad. Sad stamps you say? Yes, sad little neglected stamps... did you ever see the episode of Friends with Phoebe and the Christmas trees that weren't purchased from the lot Joey was working at and she was all concerned about them 'fulfilling their Christmas destiny'? I feel the same way about my stamps, they need to fulfill their inky destiny and shine on a card or two. :)
So far I'm not doing too bad with this goal, though I still have a long ways to go.
