FFF: Buttons!

Friday, June 18, 2010

Good Morning Sweet Peeps!

Thank goodness it's Friday! What a week this has been! I had to travel to Connecticut twice this week and Little Miss Sunshine had a dentist appointment that resulted in a huge cavity being filled. I was a little nervous for her but she was a trooper! Oh, and I can't say enough about her dentist - she really knows how to keep the little ones distracted!

Anywho, it is Friday and you know that means I have another Farm Fresh Friday challenge to share with you! It's all about my favorite embellishment (besides ribbon)...BUTTONS! Farmer Kim Nath is challenging us all to create a card or project that uses at least three buttons on it! :)

My brain was pretty fried by the time I made my card so I'm afraid I didn't stretch my creative juices much at all this week. :( I used exactly three buttons and I didn't even use them creatively! Tsk! Tsk!

For this week's card I decided to use Maggie Cleaning digital stamp from The Greeting Farm's Critter Collection. As per usual, I colored up the image with my SU reinkers and aquapainter brush on Strathmore Bristol Vellum. Miss Maggie was colored predominately with SU's Creamy Caramel with just a little bit of Really Rust in the shadows. Her dress was colored in Old Olive and her apron with Antique Linen Distress Ink. As I do with all my Critter images, I added some Glossy Accents to Maggie's eyes (as well as the water in the bucket) to make them shine. The layout is from this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge #73.

Hey Sweets, happy weekend to you! I'm sorry your week was so full...but apparently being fried when creating a card isn't a bad thing because I totally love this! It's so cute and the papers are well matched and placed! Boootiful! I hope you get some rest this weekend!

Oooh, I hope this up coming week goes better than the last one. Your card is stunning... not a bit of evidence of being a bit crispy around the edges. Your watercoloring... goodness it kills me everytime... so perfect. And these colors are amazing together. Hugs!
