FFF Challenge: It's A Sketch!

Friday, April 2, 2010

Good Morning and a very happy Friday to you all!

Did you pick up some goodies yesterday from TGF?? I bought a few more Wild Sprouts for my collection. Just wish I could find the time to actually ink them up! LOL How much rubber do you have that hasn't seen ink??

I hope some of you will help us and The Greeting Farm pull together enough Get Well cards for all the sick kiddies. I hope to be sending in a few myself. My heart just breaks when kids are involved. Maybe you could use today's Farm Fresh Friday challenge to create a couple of cards for the drive! It's a sketch challenge this week and it was created by super woman herself - Cindy Haffner!!


I have to admit that I was a little frightened of this sketch because of all the details, but somehow, with a little help from some Cosmo Cricket paper, it all came together pretty quickly! That made a nice change from the rest of the week since everything else was so difficult to piece together.

Instead of the circle panel, I used Toby Cub as the main image and a dove-tailed sentiment tag instead of the oval punch. I thought this sentiment from There She Goes matched Toby well. Kind of has a vintage feel to it with those Cosmo Cricket papers, don't you think?

Please check out what the Farmers and Critter Crew have whipped up for inspiration this week:


Thanks so much for stopping by today and all week! I really hope you enjoyed all the cards. I'll be posting my Etsy Friday Finds later this morning. :)
