Easel cards are hard to take a good picture.  Just wanted to
show a different angle.  :O)

This is from the Pretty Hat Anya set and I love that you can use
nothing but The Greeting Farm stamps to make a complete card with . 

Good morning everyone.  I am sorry,  but I just have to start off with a little Glee review this morning. 
I don't know about you guys,  but there wasn't a dry eye in the house.  We were so in tears when it came to Sue's Sister.  They really did a great job with that.   Then we head over to the one thing that I just can not deal with.....Yes, I know it is a show but OMG!  Please get rid of Jessie St James.  I just can't stand him nor can I deal with him going to New York with the Ok, I got that off my chest so let's get right to it. 
Today is Wednesday and that means a new challenge over on TGF Farm Fresh Challenge Blog!!!
As you can see the challenge this week is to make something with nothing  but black and white.  Well,  do my Wedding pictures count?  lol....Kidding, my favorite colors are black and white and in 1993 that is what our wedding colors were.   Coloring,  hmmmm a whole different story.  As you can see however I did give it a go.  It was really fun to make this one up and use some papers that I HAD to have but had not used in over six months.  As you can see I need to practice with the shading on my little girl, but I think for a first time it turned out ok.  I do have to mention that I used the last of this awesome flower trim that my friend Amy gave to me.  Love how the black and silver and white all went together.  I used the warms and next time I think I will try the cools in the Copics. 
So,  if you haven't tried this and your a little intimidated give it a go anyway.  You just might surprise yourself and really get addicted. 
Well, that's it for me today.  Hope you have a sunny and great day.  Talk at you all tomorrow.  Be sure to head over to the TGF Farm Fresh Challenge Blog and see all the wonderfulness going on . 
Hugs, Lisa G
