...Farm Fresh Sketch By Cindy


It's Farm Fresh Friday time at The Greeting Farm Blog, and this week we have a...Sketch Challenge By Cindy!  I decided to print out this handsome "Handy Ian Digital Image" from The Greeting Farm onto some PTI White Cardstock, and paired him up with some manly patterned papers from the Industrial Park Collection by Scrap Within Reach.  He was colored with Copic Sketch Markers, then the sentiment from "My Guy Ian" was stamped in Navy Ink onto a scrap piece of Mustard Cardstock.  I punched out the sentiment with the Word Window Punch, then added a Button and Linen Thread to the panel with a Mini Glue Dot.  After adding some Paper Piercing, Stitching, and tons of Dimensionals the card was complete.

Now let's see what the other Farmers and Critter Crew have up their sleeves for today's challenge:
I also made another scrapbook layout the other day using the new "In The Spotlight" Scrapbook Kit from TGF that I'd like to share with you all.  I just love the versatility of this kit.  I don't scrapbook much, but when I do, I like knowing that I have alot of elements that will work together or by them selves.  I decided to keep it pretty simple as far as the colors went, so I only used Kraft and Riding Hood Red...the red matches my son's sunburn!  LOL!  This is our little fur-baby girl, Izzy.  We arrived home one night from the grocery store, and were startled when this little fluff of a baby came out of our bushes that surround our front porch.  She was so dehydrated that she couldn't even meow, and she looked like she was only about 4 weeks old.  We brought her in to take care of her, and she has been with us ever since.  She loves to snuggle up with Christian...and I think he's pretty fond of it, too. :)
That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to head over to the TGF Blog for the official challenge rules and play along with us!  I'll see you back here tomorrow for another C4C Challenge. Until then...
