This is my first official Farm Fresh Friday card since being a part of the Fall team and talk about a doozer of a challenge! Our fabulous farmer and my friend, Kadie, and her challenge for us is...'all about a boy'! Arrgh! A boy card?! Remind me to thank you later Miss Kadie! LOL
I've had Skater Ian in my collection since he was released (way back when) but I ashamed to say I hadn't inked him up until now! Shocking isn't it? I don't know what took me so long because he was pure FUN to color up! I love this bad boy image!! I also LOVE this layout, but alas, the idea was not mine. I was a little fried this week from all the cards I've been making that I drew a blank on what to do for this challenge, until I remembered this card that my idol, Leigh O'Brien created. I decided the best thing for a fried brain was to case a favorite card of mine to inspire me again. Now, if you want to play along with us on this FFF challenge, head over to TGF blog for all the details and get out all your manly embellishments!! LOL
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I have another post later on this morning, so stay tuned!
