MFT Teaser Day 4--Mud Buddies

Well, I have to be honest with ya'll. I don't garden. I don't mow the grass, keep a garden, grow stuff, or pull weeds. I think I was scarred for life as a kid. We lived on a big corner lot when I was a teenager. One summer, my dad made me pull all the weeds in the whole yard before I was allowed to do anything with any of my friends that summer (and I wasn't even being punished for anything, that's just what kind of torture he made up especially for me). Being that the yard was so big, by the time I'd finish with one side, the other would be full of weeds again. People would actually drive by our house and literally ask me if I ever stopped pulling weeds. Ever. Needless to say, I went nowhere that summer, except to my little towel to sit on in the front yard for more endless (useless) pulling. Man, I wish they had iPods back then.

Anyway, even though gardening and yardwork aren't my thing, I fell in love with this little cutie the minute I laid my eyes on her! She's a NEW Pure Innocence girl from My Favorite Things called Mud Buddies and I get to give a little sneak peek of her today, but the stamp set will be available for purchase after the Release Party this Wednesday night. I love her RED hair! Another little touch I gave to this stamped image is on the little seed packet. I guess it could be a can of something she's pouring, but I took a Microfine Pen from Prismacolor (so it wouldn't bleed into my Copic coloring) and wrote, "My Seeds" on the front, making it an envelope full of seeds. Yes, this is the way I plant things (if I even bother). Just sprinkle the seeds on top of the ground and give them a little water. If they take, great, if not, some bird just got lucky. Don't dare get those boots dirty, either.

Ok, so I know ya'll are dying to see more teasers! All of the new Pure Innocence stamps are being shown today be several members of the MFT Team. Go see what they've cultivated by checking out all the links on Kim's blog HERE.
