…Farm Fresh Birthday Blog Hop

Today is a very special day…not only is it time for another Farm Fresh Friday Challenge, but it is also JESSICA DIEDRICH’S BIRTHDAY!  We wanted to all do something for her to wish her a very happy birthday, so we are having a Birthday Blog Hop!  If you’ve come here from Mary’s Blog, then you’re in the right place.  If not, then you can start at The Greeting Farm Blog and go form there!  I already had my card created for this week’s challenge, but I wanted to do something special for Jess…so I created an “Alice In Wonderland”-inspired birthday banner (I hope she likes it)!  Happy Birthday, my sweet friend…I hope every wish comes true for you this year!  You certainly deserve it!  Your next stop on the hop will be Sandra’s Blog!

Now onto today’s Farm Fresh Friday Challenge:

This week we have a...Don’t Forget to “Floss” Challenge by Kadie.  We were to create a card that incorporates floss somewhere on our creation.  I decided to use Marina Neira’s “Robbie Seal” digital image, then colored him with Copic Sketch Markers.  I paired the colored focal panel with some patterned papers from BasicGrey’s Eva paper pads.  I used one of the Curved Rectangle Nesties Die to cut him out, then stamped the sentiment from the “OA-Happy Day” stamp set.  After adding some Piercing, Ribbon, a Button with floss, and loads of Dimensionals the card was complete.  So whatcha think?  :)

Now let's see what the other Farmers and Critter Crew have up their sleeves for today's challenge:
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 to play along with us!  I'll see you back here on Sunday with another Mercy’s Magnificent Musings. Until then...
