Design My Sprout

A very happy Thursday's greeting to you all. Ok so is everyone ready to design their sprout?!!! I know you are. =) Before we continue to the deets and yadayada, just a quickie announcement. Be sure to tune in tomorrow for a nice surprise. Many of you have asked for this and tomorrow I am proud to show you something new on the farm.

Yesterday's ASADG winner is:
Stephanie
http://luvscraps.blogspot.com/

Email me with your stamp choice and address to claim your prize!


Ok and now to a super fun challenge of making your own sprout! This fun challenge came to mind when I was thinking of how to get our TGF friends (that's all of you!) more involved at the farm. As you know your feedback and suggestions are super important to me and I always tell people that I let my splendid customers set the trends in our company. So I would be honor to have all of you who are willing to participate in designing and deciding our next sprout! Enough blabber from me, let's roll onto the good stuff!

*********************************
Design My Sprout




Rules: The Wild Sprouts Collection is growing like weeds here on the farm and we'd like you to add the next newcomer! Rules are simple. Using the above template, design your sprout! Rmember it is only a template to help guide you, the rest is up to your creativity! You can trace over it. You design the face, hair, clothing, posture, accessories, the list goes on. There's really no limit to it. Add a pet with it if you like. =) Maybe he/she is dancing! Maybe they're jumping, maybe it's a princess sprout, maybe he's rollerblading, it is up to you! You can even create your sprout on a card to show us your idea. Remember to NAME your sprout in the title of your image.

You can have up to 3 entries. Please post your entry in the Galleria>Contest/Challenges>Design My Sprout. Remember your entries must be in this folder.

Deadline: Thursday Sept. 24th

Judging: 3 sprouts will be chosen and one will be voted on to become rubber by you! We will set up a poll when the challenge ends.

Prize: The winner will get their sprout plus a free month's shipping. AND I will also throw in 3 free stamp singles of their choice. Spiffy eh? haha.

So what are you waiting for? Get that template and start designing!
*********************************


Have fun and I look forward to seeing all the fabulous ideas and creations!

Today's question is: Luncheon with the Twilight cast or Luncheon with the Harry Potter cast?

HAHAHA! Potter for me! I hope we can lunch in costume! ha!

Oh man I am ALL over this challenge... the problem will be narrowing it down to three! :)

I have to say I'd choose the Potter cast out of those two but in all honesty I'd rather it be the cast of Lord of the Rings... :)

Charlie said...

Oh Twilight for me all the way!

Tasha said...

Im so psyched about this challenge. I so cant draw but im going to give it a go. Im not a fan of either but much prefer Harry Potter (my two year old loves it but calls it Harry Cotter). Im like Amy and wound LOVE to lunch with the LOTR crew. Love tasha x

Kim Y. said...

Cool! Will try to see if I can come up with anything!
Hmmm...not sure which cast. I am not a fan of either one of them!

Monkichi said...

Harry Potter cast, hands down!

How exciting to design a new Sprout!

BishopsMommie said...

definitely the twilight cast for me, and I want to sit beside Edward and Jacob...yummmmmmmmmm..actually I wouldn't even need food..lol

Dragonlady said...

No contest here, Harry Potter cast please.

Ali x

Amy's Stocking Stuffers said...

Oh, definitely the Harry Potter cast! But it would have to include them all: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, Neville, Draco, Luna, Snape, Sirius, Professor Trelawny, Professor McGonagall.... When you think about it, the Harry Potter movies to date have included a huge percentage of the finest actors in England!

CreaRenata said...

What a great challenge. Have to think how my sprout is gonna look like.

Renata

Amy :) said...

good luck to everyone who participates.

as for the question it depends...
if you're talking about MOVIE cast, i'd choose Harry Potter. if you're just talking about lunch with the actual characters, i think i'd choose Twilight.

nbells said...

I'm a Twilight fan!!! So definitely lunch with the twilight cast!!!

Kris said...

Congrats to the winner! Can't wait to see what everyone creates... so very exciting! i would love to have lunch with the cast of Twilight.... Good Luck everyone!

Ruthie said...

Hmmmm - guess it would be Potter but not too keen on either tbh.

Gonna have a go at the sprout - didnt think I would but now I have seen the template - will give one to my son to do too - he is 9!

Patricia said...

I would love to design a new sprout, but having trouble find the template... Is it really showing, cause I can't see it...

Answer to the question:
I'm not for milliar with the twilight so I choose Harry Potter!!

Hug,
Patricia

glowinshadow23 said...

So excited to start designing my wild sprout!!

Happy Earth Girl said...

So excited about designing a wild sprout!!!

I'd love to have lunch with Edward, Jacob, Alice, Carlisle, Esme, etc.... but I'd feel like a pig since I'd be the only one eating....

Nunt said...

Template, what template...? Then I squinted :D Maybe you'd like to make the outline a bit darker? I seriously didn't see the image there :D Or maybe I need new glasses...

Harry Potter cast, and actually I can give you back all other actors except Alan Rickman... He I'll keep in an airtight bottle for the rest of my days!

Mariska said...

Oh how I wish I could design. I'll give it a go but I'm pretty sure it will never make it to the gallery :). Can't wait what you have to show tomorrow and as for the question... TWILLIGHT PRETTY PLEASE :).

Your question is a no-brainer: definitely the Twilight cast!!

~*Joni said...

Oooh fun!!! What a sweet template, i do believe that you'll be bombarded in your gallery. :D

Twilight all the way. But I totally couldn't eat sitting across any of them, especially Taylor.

L.Nielsen (Lynda) said...

GREAT Challenge Marie, I just LOVE how you involve us all. This is going to be so much fun.

Okay if I had to choose - I would have to say I would have lunch with the Harry Potter crew! As long as I don't end up eating toad soup or something like that. LOL

Hugs,
Lynda =)

Cheryl said...

Awesome contest challenge !! I cant draw but am gonna have a go at it :)

Molly Joly said...

Love the contest - how exciting!

I'd have to say Harry Potter.

AShu93 said...

I'm not a big fan, but Harry Potter, since I know nothing about Twilight.

Rachel said...

Pick between those two??? HARD! I would have to go with HP but only b/c there are just so many characters and I've loved them for so long.

I can't draw but hopefully with some creative tracing I can come up with something!

Heidi said...

WEll 4 months ago I would have said Harry Potter but after whipping through those Twilight books in 10days I am going with Twilight. And don't even try to put me anywhere but between Edwin and Carlisle!

Buttons Ribbons and Pearls said...

Fab Challenge! It would definitely be lunch with Harry and gang.

Stephanie said...

Good luck to everyone for the WS design!

Twilight for me all the way!!!

iveegirl76 said...

I'd have to go with Potter!!!

Tammy said...

This is a great contest! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.

It would be the Harry Potter gang for me. I'd be to one edge to have the Twilight gang watch me eat.

Amy said...

How fun is this going to be!!!! I can't wait to give it a go! and for the record, I'll take Twilight please (you get a little bit of both here since Rob played Cedric Digory in Harry Potter)...gotta love his brooding look! so come hither LOL!!!!

Donna said...

I love the Harry Potter movies and I love the Twilight books, but I don't think I would want to have lunch with a bunch of young teenagers.

Ashley said...

Twilight! I'm a Twihard!

WickedPixie said...

Oh, My!! I am so afraid I will have a brain crash and get no ideas, but this is So exciting!!!

Definitely Harry Potter! I want to be a student at Hogwarts SO much! And my daughter thinks it's so funny that her mom has a crush on the Twins (book version and movie version!) :-)Traci

Nicole B said...

hands down - TWILIGHT!!!

Stampingcaz said...

Ohh twilight for me

Tanya Rudd said...

I would have to say neither, the cast of Twilight really dissapointed me, my imagination was better than the movies.

I can not seem to see the template, but when I do I will surely try to create some sprouts.

Jen said...

I'm with you! Potter for me!

Lindsay said...

lol I am sooo with you! I love twilight but I think I still love Harry Potter more plus you kinda watched them grow up through the movies he hee

and yay!!! I can't wait to design some sprouts!

Darlene said...

Harry Potter cast.

ScrapinShana said...

For me, the choice is easy...Twilight cast! =)

Shaela said...

Harry Potter hands down. The Twilight cast disgust me.

Stephanie said...

I'm definitely a 'Lunch With Twilight" type! Yay for vampires!

Jacilynn said...

No question HP cast. I'm a fan of twilight, but thought the movie was painful to watch. The acting was NOT good. So Harry Potter for me. I love Ron.
x

Renie said...

Since I have never seen or read either, I will go with Twilight because the characters are my age and hot!!!

I can't wait to give my artisit hand a try.

Gabby said...

OH MAN I'M EXICTED!!! Let me print this baby out and break out my "drawing skillz" which are horrible...but I'll try! LOL!

I would SO much rather sit with the Potter cast! I'm a Potter Head even though I do love Twilight...but I wouldn't like getting bitten while having my lunch! *rolls eyes* LOL! I would also love to be in costume...lol.

Thanks Marie! :D

Michelle (mla1111) said...

Crafty Num Nums said...

Mine would have to be Harry Potter, but then if you ask my daughter it is difintely Twilight. But Harry Potter ALL the way for me, that would be awesome.

rpc25 said...

good luck to all of you who are going to design

handstampedbylacey said...

Good luck to everyone who is trying the challenge!!
Let's see...I think the cast of Twilight is HOT! But vampires freak me out a little too much!! Not that witches are much better...but since I read all of the Harry Potter books... I would have to go with Harry!
~Lacey

Gina Wrona said...

Harry Potter since I've never heard of Twilight.

Thanks!

Martha said...

uhhh I would say Twilight!

Maylee said...

Totally with the the Twilight cast!

itsabrt said...

Harry Potter! Beth aka BR-T

Crafty Jenn said...

This is a very intriging challenge! See if I can un-earth my drawing skills, they're a little dusty.

I would totally have lunch with the HP cast!! That is usually what I have playing in the background while I stamp. That, or some old skool music. ;)

MommaJess said...

First off I can't get the template to print to where it shows up. I see other people are having this problem too.

As for which cast, I would have to say Twilight. Although I would love to be able to sit and chat with Alan Rickman (Prof. Snape) from Harry Potter.

Kim Etherington said...

Twilight cast for me! Great challenge idea!!

Sue D said...

I'm not a fan of either one--I would rather have a luncheon on the farm with TGF "cast"

Kate T said...

oh wow what a challenge....I'll get me thinking cap on !

Sinihilkka said...

Oh, I wish I had time to design a sprout. I take Harry Potter cast of course ^^

Whoopsie Daisy! said...

I've waiting for today!! Yippeee! Can't wait to start working on the sketch. :)

Luncheon with the Twilight cast please! A seat next to Rob would be perfect! ;)

xx Jane

Erin said...

I better get my thinking cap out for this challenge. Lunch with Harry!

kim-paperbabe said...

Wow what an exciting challenge will certainly give it a go!

MMMmmmm lunch!

oh, would probably be with the Harry Potter cast but I would definitly join in the lord of the rings cast anyday even wash day tee hee!
HuGs Kim :)

Deconstructing Jen said...

So cool! I can't wait to see the designs. And OME what a hard question. I at first wanted to say the HP cast because they intrigue me more but the thought of walking away from a chance to meet Rob is too much so... Twilight cast it is.

Kristyn said...

What a fun challenge! I'll have to brush off my drawing skills ;-)

As for which group would I want to lunch with...I would have to say HP solely b/c they were my obsession first. But if the LOTR cast was available I would drop them in a heartbeat ;-) LOL

Daisychain said...

Definately Harry Potter cast, but only if Alan Rickman (Prof. Snape) was there as I'm a HUGE fan of his.

KanataNewf said...

definitely the harry potter cast....

Jenn Borjeson said...

Oh this is too cute. I cannot wait to see what everyone comes up with!!!

I think I'd choose lunch with the Harry Potter peeps!

Lisa Foster said...

Twilight Luncheon for me..er well...can it just be Edward and me? :)
Exciting challenge...I've got my thinking cap on!

Jennifer said...

Oh wow, I am going to have so much fun!

Oh definitely twilight, harry potter no way.

Michelle said...

Definitely Harry Potter cast!

Jenny said...

Luncheon with the Twilight cast sound good. I'm not a fan but Edward is so cute. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with on the new design for the sprout.

Caroljenks said...

Ooooh I love the naked Sprout - can't wait to get playing :)

Harry Potter for me everytime! Although I would have to pinch some Floo Powder off him as I always find myself wishing for it at the airport when we're coming back from holiday!!!

Carol x

Louise Forsyth said...

Ohh so gonna try to design a sprout!!!
Hard choice on the cast.... ummm probably Harry Potter, but only if Syrius could come back from the dead to be there.

Jessica said...

twilight for sure, never got into harry potter.

the wild sprout contest sounds super fun, I want to try and participate!

Sherri said...

Can I just say "bite me". :o)

Allison said...

Wow Fun! This is going to be so fun to see what everyone come up with for their little Sprouts! As far as lunch goes, I have never seen either so that would make for a very emarassing lunch... sitting down with these big name people but not knowing the slightest... Could I send my sister out with the Twilight cast?

Ida P. Krause said...

Wow what a novel and fun idea on Designing the new Sprout.

Well for me I'd have to say Twilight because I'm more into Vampires then Wizards.

Peggy said...

What a fun challenge! Cant wait to see the submissions.
I am an avid Harry Potter fan!

This N That said...

How FUN! I can't wait to get started...but....I can't see the template! AHHH! Any help?

Lisa M. (aka. Lisabee) said...

Hmmm....I will have to say that I'd prefer lunch with the Twilight group--I need me some Emmett! LOL!

Lauretta See ( LadyPou) said...

twilight ohhhh yes thats it for me :)

i will try to do something with the sprout ;) cant wait to see what the orthers will do... and what they will look like :))

Lilacanglia said...

O wow,
It would have to be Harry Potter,
I have tried to draw sprout,

Drawing is just not my thing,
Hugs
