Greeting Farm Fun!

Happy Weekend, All!  I'm just popping in with a card I finished last night for a challenge at Quixotic's challenge.  It was to alter Greeting Farm images on your piece.  I had a blast with this!  I really love my GF's and this made me love them so much more!  I started off with Sheriff Ian and Wild West Anya.  Then I dug out my Dress Me Ian and the shorts and the Dress Me Anya with the summer sundress.  I colored the pieces with Copics and then paper pieced her dress.  I saved the legs and boots on Wild West Anya too. Then I assembled the cuteness!  I knew I needed a country song for this card.  My initial plan I decided was not appropriate given the cute I went with Kenny Chesney's "No shoes, no shirt, no problem!"  I thought it was a perfect match!  I hope you like it!

Quixotic:  Altered Greeting Farm images
ABC: Q is for Quotation (I quoted bits of a song)
Totally Gorjuss: Ribbon
Anyone for Anya: Spring Fever (I'm thinking a good Spring Break card!)
Anya Ink: Bling
Die Cut Dreams: Use at least 2 punches (scalloped edge and corner punches under images, music notes)

Thanks for stopping by!

Something Distressed!

Happy Friday!  It's been a beautiful weather week here in NH!  Tomorrrow looks to be a fabulous day too!  Glad I got my stamping done in advance!  So this week at Stamp Something, the challenge is "Distressed Somethings."  The sponsor this week is Stamp and Create.  I got to play with "Happy Day," by Wags n Whiskers. I colored her with Copics and paper pieced her dress with My Mind's Eye papers.  She is supposed to be holding a pinwheel, but I chose to put a flower there instead :) I distressed EVERYTHING! I went on a distressing spree :)  I love how busy and crazy this card is!  Hope you do too!  Please visit the rest of the DT and see all of the beautiful inspiration!
