FFF: Sew Random!

Friday, July 2, 2010

Good Morning Sweet Peeps!

It's Friday again?! Where on earth did this week go? It only just felt like Monday a couple of days ago! I'm not complaining though - this means that in a few short hours, I'm officially on vacation!! Wooohooooo! I've got a whole 10 days in front of me to do as I please (with the exception of a couple of bbq's, but that's not really an issue)! I think I'll probably keep the Little Ray of Sunshine home with me one day next week and laze around by the pool while eating strawberries...ahhh, now THAT sounds fabulous! :)

Have you seen Eclipse yet? I saw it Wednesday night, but sadly, we got there a half hour before it showed and the only seats we could find were right up front two rows from the giant IMAX screen! I highly suggest you NOT see the movie this way! lol The chins of every actor looked twice as big and the action scenes were very blurry. I'm going to see it again next week, so I'm not too disappointed about it. :)

Well, since it is Friday, that means I have another Farm Fresh Friday challenge to share with you! This one is brought to us by the creative Farmer, Randi Wall! She wants to see a whole lotta sewing on your cards or projects and at least two designer papers! :) I know I can do that with my eyes closed! :D

This is the card I gave to my little girl for her birthday the other day. (By the way, thank you to everyone who left birthday wishes for her on my post the other day! She was so excited to see a picture of herself on my blog and everyone's comments!) She loves her merry-go-rounds, so I knew she'd love this image of Benny and Penny! This is another of the new digi stamps released yesterday and it's probably my most favorite image from the release. I love all the detail!! But man, it takes some serious time to color! It was totally worth it though - I looove how it turned out!

As always, I colored this image with my reinkers and aquapainter brush and as Randi requested, I used a straight stitch on the top and bottom panels and a zigzag stitch on the middle panel. I did something a little different this week with my ribbon. I thread it through the main panel to break up the white spaces just a bit. You can't see it in the picture too well, but I sprayed the main panel with some Glimmer Mist to give it more of a magical feel.
