So I'm into Day Three of my time off and just want to say thanks to everyone for your birthday wishes the last couple of days. I'm organizing a bunch of my favourite products for a little birthday blog candy and am just waiting on a few things to arrive in the post. Keep your eyes peeled on the blog-arooni as I will likely be putting up the post sometime in the next couple of weeks.
Anyways, today I was a bit more keen with getting on the go and was able to get to my craft room by late morning for some crafty-time after getting all my households chores out of the way. I stamped up a bunch of my "new-to-me" Greeting Farm images (I just got them earlier in March and finally got around to trimming them two weeks ago) for the first challenge over at the newly re-launched TGF Farm Fresh Challenge Blog - Miss Anya Hats Off (three of each of the three girls) and Cheeky Shooter (two of her). I managed to get the skin and hair coloured on all of them. I then chose two of them to make a couple of cards using this week's Pixie Cottage Sketch Challenge (#63).
This first card will be given to one of dearly beloved's nieces tomorrow for her birthday - I can't believe she is going to be 7! That's why I added the strip of numbers on the side with the arrow pointing to the 7.
Since Challenge 11 over at Crafter's Companion is to use Aqua and Brown on your card, I'll be submitting the first card to that challenge.
Not sure yet to whom this second card will be gifted. For now it will be in my stash.
I went with a little additional pop of colour on this one by using the pink side of one of the patterned papers above - which are from the "Life is Good" collection from Echo Park Paper Co.
And what do you think of my little embellie? I did a rolled paper flower from the patterned paper for a little something different - mind you it makes for a VERY THICK CARD! Definitely a gift by hand and not by post kind of card since it makes the card more than half an inch thick and the flower would be crushed by the mail sorting machines.
I'll be submitting this second card to the CCEE1113 challenge: no BUTTONS, BUCKLES, BOWS, BRADS.
