FFF: Cindy's Sketch

Friday, June 25, 2010

Good Morning a VERY happy Friday to you!

I feel like a broken record but seriously - what a week it's been! I had two more trips down to Connecticut this week for work and stamped my heart out until after midnight every night getting cards made for all the blog hops this week - I'm absolutely exhausted! But it doesn't stop there because tomorrow is my little ray of sunshine's birthday party! She turns 5 next week! (I have 1000's of photos to prove it but I still don't know where the time went?!) I've got favors to prepare and salads to make, a castle cake and balloons to pick up! It's a good thing I have vacation coming up or else I would be in some serious trouble!

This week's Farm Fresh Friday challenge from The Greeting Farm is a great sketch brought to us by Farmer Cindy Haffner!

It's great isn't it?? Perfect for any of The Greeting Farm characters and Marina Neira images.

Forgive me, but I didn't experiement too much with this sketch this week. With my demanding work schedule, I was a little fried when I made my card for this challenge. Next week I promise to push myself a little more. ;)

I decided to use the Candy Cane Snack digital stamp and make an early Christmas card. I probably should start winding up and make a few more now that we're almost into the second half of the year! I just love these two! Especially on a Christmas card! Sometimes a non traditional Christmas card is so refreshing, don't you think?? (Expecially when we're still in the middle of summer here!)

As usual, I colored up this digital stamp with reinkers and an aquapainter on Georgia Pacific cardstock and used some of those colorful Christmas papers from Cosmo Cricket's Jolly By Golly Collection. I kept the papers pretty monochromatic since the main image had so many colors in it. I have a very bad habit of leaving the addition of a sentiment on my cards until the last moment and, in this case, leaving no room for it! Doh! So I'll probably just put one on the inside instead. :)
