FFF: Going Green Challenge!

Friday, April 23, 2010

Happy Friday everyone!

I hope you all had a great week. Mine was pretty uneventful for the most part. We took a trip over to a local (around here a 30 minute ride is still local) eatery yesterday and even though it was a pretty cold evening, I couldn't resist their ice cream! They have all sorts of flavors, but my favorite is their caramel cashew chip....absolute heaven!! I behaved and ordered a kiddie sized portion, but even then, it's still pretty big! I wonder how many trips there we can fit into this summer?! Hmmmm....

This week's Farm Fresh Friday Challenge is all about GOING GREEN! In honor of Earth Day yesterday, TGF wants you to go green all weekend long! Use the color green, recycled products, grass, LOL...whatever you feel GETS YOUR GREEN on!

I have to admit, this Chipmunk Gathers image by Marina Neira didn't exactly jump out at me screaming to be colored, but now that it is....I think it's adorable!! It actually looks a whole lot better colored then just in the buff! :) I actually did a couple of 'green' things with this card. I recycled some old Basic Grey paper that has been sitting in my stash for a while now and since it had a bunch of green in it, it worked out perfectly! :) Just in case you're wondering, I borrowed Mercy's sketch from this week for the layout.

If you're still a bit stumped for ideas, definitely check out what the Farmers did for this challenge:
Thanks so much for stopping by this morning! A little later on today I have some more Etsy Friday Finds for you to oogle and drool over! ;)

WOW! Your coloring on this is just amazing Sandra. Well on everything really, but you really know how to color these critters and just make them pop! Looks like we were on the same wavelength this week as we used some of the same paper.
