Farm Fresh Friday

Friday, October 2, 2009

TGIF!! Woohooo!

Did you all enjoy TGF blog hop yesterday!?! I loved all the creativity I saw! Feeling inspired to make some more 3D things...I had fun with that painters bucket!

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!

First of all I could do without all that BR**N on the card but other than that (excuse me gotta put on my Brown Free Glasses) O.K. that is much better now!!!

I love the scene you created Sandra you are truly an amazingly talented designer and I told Jess this week on the phone that your work always blows me away and we both adore your coloring!!

I love this card!!! ( I have only used Skater Ian once back when I made a card with him on a ramp and I really need to use him more!!!

About once a week all my nieghborhood kids and my kids ask me to stamp them up TGF images so that they can color them and yesterday Skater Ian was a favorite pick for me to stamp up!!!
