Farm Fresh Friday...and a Birthday Blog Hop!

Friday, July 23, 2010

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MISS JESSICA!! I hope you have a F.A.B.ulous day and your family shower you with love and lots of pressies!

It's the Queen of Coordination's birthday today and we're combining today's Farm Fresh Friday post with a big, birthday blog hop bash to celebrate Jess's GRAND day!

If you've stopped here from the oh so talented Mercy Kerin's blog, then you're on the right track. But if you haven't and would like to hang out with us along this special and impromptu hop, then head back to the Club Anya blog and start your ride there!

Today's Farm Fresh Friday challenge is all about USING YOUR FLOSS! So get out your embroidery thread or scrapbooking floss and apply it to your card!

My usual M.O. is using floss when threading buttons, but today I decided to 'think outside the box' and stitched with it on my card instead! I colored up Maggie Bunny with my reinkers and aquapainter brush and created a simple layout to let Maggie shine.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESS!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Your next stop along this hop is the fabulous Sparkle Smith's blog!



Supplies
Stamps: The Greeting Farm 'Maggie Bunny', sentiment from PTI 'Mixed Messages'
Inks: StazOn 'Jet Black', Creamy Caramel, Morning Marigold, Pumpkin Pie, Sahara Sand, Regal Rose, Ruby Red, Old Olive, Cool Caribbean, Going Gray
Papers: Strathmore Bristol Vellum, Bazzil Basics, PP - My Minds Eye
Access: Ribbon, DMC Thread, Martha Stewart Edge Punch, Machine Stitching, Needle, Dimensionals
