FFF: Mercy's Sketch

Friday, June 11, 2010

Hi everyone! TGIF!

I've gone to bed after midnight every night this week. Between working on cards, watching my favorite shows on Netflix and the NBA Final playoffs...I'm pooped! And I can't really sleep in tomorrow morning with The Man working his hell shift. I have to be up and somewhat coherent for the Little Ray of Sunshine. Maybe Sunday I can catch some zzzz's. :)

Ok, so you know what Friday means by now...yep, another Farm Fresh Friday challenge!

Our talented, and newest Farmer, Mercy Kerin, has created a sketch for everyone and I think it's one you're going to L.O.V.E!

Pretty cool isn't it? I have to admit that for a person like me who loves her layers, this sketch scared me, just a tad! Haha Give me layers and I'm right at home....no layers and I'm like a fish out of water!

But I persevered and created this card using Maggie from the Sweet Messages set by designer Marina Neira. As usual, she was colored up with reinkers and aquapainter brush and I used the large oval nestie to cut her out. Then I matted her on a scalloped oval nestie. I created the card with some patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket's DeLovely Collection and a big Prima flower with a button in the center. See that piece of ric rak ribbon?! It's not actually ribbon! I used my cheap decorative scissors (from Michaels) to make it! Where there's a will, there's a way! :)

I know you'll want to see what the Farmers and Critter Crew have created with this sketch, so here's a list of the blogs:

and the fabulous Critter Crew...

Happy Friday!
Your card today is SO MUCH fun! I absolutely love how you've used those Delovely papers. I keep looking at them thinking they are too bright to use, but using the yellow and then bringing in the hints of all those bright colors is perfect, especially in the way you've colored her dress. Gorgeous job!! MUAH
