Live your Bliss...Anyway You Can!

A very happy Friday to you all!

Last night we went to a jazz concert put on by the local college students and we had a ball! We've been every year since Syd was 6 months old. This year's theme was the Silver Screen and songs from some big hits. They played 'Over The Rainbow' and the theme song to 'The Pink Panther' - it was such a great night! Anyway...

This card is for today's Farm Fresh Friday challenge over at The Greeting Farm! This week's challenge is to go 'old school' - go back to a time when we didn't have Cuttlebugs and those lovely Nesties (that wasn't all that long ago for me!) or those awesome edge punches. Yes my friends, it's time to create a card using what you had before those sweet inventions - create your card using only your cutting board!! *GASP* Without Nesties?!!? hehe And before you all gong me - I think decorative scissors are allowed since they've been around since before the dawn of time! ;) (That's my theory, and I'm sticking to it!)

I've been trying to find a reason to use this old Basic Grey paper for quite some time now. In fact, I think I picked it up at that New Years Day Scrapbook store sale I went to at the beginning of the year (Remember the one where I stood in line for 4 hours. Yeah, that one.) And I just had to give Sassy Suzie some rocking blue hair! You know, I think these wild sprouts look better with funky colored hair than they do with realistic hair tones, don't you??

Now it's your turn to create a card using only your cutting board! Upload your creation to TGF Gallery by Wednesday December 16th to be in the running to win some stamps from TGF! Check out what the other DT girls have created for this challenge:


Thanks so much for stopping by all this week! We are off to see The Princess and the Frog movie tonight since Syd has been just dying to see it for a few weeks now. Enjoy your weekend!
