Monday Card Critique

Hi Everyone! Welcome to another Monday on the Farm! Today I have some more digi previews for you by a couple of our upcoming gardeners! Remember these delightful digis by Marina Neira are available Oct 1st, which is in a few days! Look at these darlings!!!


By Lynda Nielson










By Lisa Futch

Can you hardly wait til Thursday? I can't! In the meantime, I will be setting up the poll for our 'Design My Sprout' contenders for Wednesday. It was super hard to narrow it down so there may be a more than 3 to vote amongst. heehee. There were a couple of wintery ones that I really liked but we weren't going to be able to produce those in time for the holidays but I may revisit those. Also several really good concepts that are already in progress for either an upcoming Anya or sprout so those were not selected either. But everyone did a wonderful job and this is the most fun contest in my opinion up to date. =) I hope you all had fun!!! And thank you sooo much for participating! Have a great Monday and I'll see you back here tomorrow for Top Crop Tuesday.


Friday's ASADG winner is:

Wow I wasn't all too thrilled with the teenager digi's but those little critters are so cute, and they will be on my Christmas list that is for sure.

Today card... I just want to say that I really love the layout of the card, the coloring is perfect but I think different Designer Paper would change the whole card.

Love Kim's card - I would never have put those colours together but they work so well.
