FFF: On The First Day of Christmas....

Friday, December 18, 2009

Good Morning!

I'm actually a little sad to bring you today's FFF challenge since it's my second last one before my term is done as part of the Fall Gardener team. I've had just the BEST time these past few months and I wish it wasn't coming to an end. :( The year is almost at an end too, but what better way to ring it in than a HUGE TGF Contest!??


TGF will be posting Twelve Days of Sketches on the TGF BLOG starting with today's Farm Fresh Friday! With the exception of Sundays and Christmas Day, TGF be indulging your stamping addiction with TWELVE awesome sketches designed by DT girls Cindy Haffner, Mercy Kerin, Jessica and Marie! Each day a different sketch will be posted and you can also find a place to upload them in the TGF galleria. Our 12th sketch will be revealed on New Year's Day with a HUGE all-day CELEBRATION...stay tuned for details on that! Our next two FFF's will proceed as normal and a prize will be given out to a random winner. In addition, anyone who completes ALL TWELVE sketches (you will have until Sunday 1/3/10 at 8pm CST to complete them and upload them to the appropriate galleries) will be entered into a drawing to win the ENTIRE TGF JANUARY RELEASE!!! Awesome right?!

You can go to the TGF blog to get all the details and check out the sketch. Here's my attempt at the sketch. I have just had so much fun coloring this stamp by award winning author and illustrator, Elizabeth Dulemba! The watercoloring medium helps add to the whimsy feel of this image, don't you think? I 'tweeked' the sketch just a little by rotating it and moving the detail, or embellishment, to the bottom of the card.

Now it's your turn! Create your card and upload it to the Sketch One gallery. But don't rest on your laurel's because Sketch Two is coming your way tomorrow!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be on the look out for one more post today...I couldn't resist. :)
