A few Altered Sprouts!

Hi Everyone! Did you see the announcement last week on The Greeting Farm blog about the new Create Your Own Sprout contest? Now, you would think this would be right up my alley as I am always altering Anya's and Ian's but since the announcement I have drawn a total blank!! I would sit with my little traced Sprout just staring at the paper! Well, yesterday, I finally got a couple of things to make their way out of my brain! I am not sure that I will enter these (I think we are limited to 3 entries). I think my Rocker Girl "Liv" (short for Olivia, but she prefers Liv!) may be a little too surly and Marie made a limited edition Elf Anya last year (that was right before I discovered TGF so I missed out on her and I have always wanted her, so that's why I made an elf!!) so I may not enter my Elf "Meri"either! Hopefully some other things come to me!! BTW, if you haven't seen the Sprout creations on Amy's blog you are missing out!

these are too cool! I love the surly look on Liv's face, and I love how you made Meri. she reminds me of Elf Anya, but she's definitely a sprout! Can't wait to see what else you come up with when inspiration hits!

Tammy said...

These are fantastic Traci! I've been waiting all weekend to see what you came up with. You have not disappointed. These have my vote for sure.
Great Job!

I love Liv, you should totally enter her. I love the little attitude. I wanted to do the Fond Farewell challenge and case one of your cards, but I see that I have run out of time. Thank you so much for all the inspiration over the last 6 months. You have improved my hair coloring ability by 100%.

Amy said...

OMGosh! I want Meri sooo bad... I missed out on elf Anya too so you have to submit this design!
One of my good friends in high school was named Liv and she had short hair too, so I would totally get her as well!
Are there going to be more tomorrow? ;)

Lisa
