countdown to CHRISTMAS...

Farm Fresh Challenge with Sharette

Good morning everyone. 
     I have to start off this morning with a huge TGIF!!! It is weird, but Wednesday we all got up in good moods talking about how awesome it was because it was already Wednesday and the week was just flying by.  Well yesterday when we got up and it was still dark out and it was a pretty cloudy, darkish fall day we all kind of got up and commented that it was only Thursday and "Oh my word would Friday ever get here?" lol...  Isn't it weird how that all works out.  Sorry, just a little share from me to you.  lol
     Well, it is finally FRIDAY and I am soooo HAPPY.  I just have to get through my work day and then I am off for two whole days.  My cousin and his wife are coming to visit this evening and that always makes us HAPPY.  Needless to say I can not wait.  Then I getting up at 6am Saturday morning, sit on my new couch with my warm blanket and blog hop for a little while then I am so going to play with my Greeting Farm Stamps , Copics and some Spellbinders before my mojo takes a walk again.  lol........
Danni's awesome step card...
     So, with it being Friday and all that means it is time once again for a new Farm Fresh Challenge over on the FF Challenge blog.  This week Sharette has picked out a somewhat challenging card for us to make.  She went with a beautiful step card that Danni created. I think you all will agree with me when I say that it is just beautiful.      Now, I have to admit that I was very intimidated at the thought of making a step card as I had tried before and failed.  Of course my mind went to work to think of a way around it (yes, I know we can use a theme of the card or a color) but then I decided that I really wanted to give it a go.  I did and boy oh boy am I happy that after the third try I was able to make my very own,  very first step card.  :O)  Yes, you can say that I am proud of myself on this one.  I used my new Spellbinders die (Heirloom Ornaments) from Flowers to Flourishes  and I love it.  My mind is going a hundred different ways thinking of all the things that I want to do with it.  Then of course I just had to use my newest Creeper Crew Member 'Sunday'.  He is soooo cute and for some reason he reminds me of Ken as in Ken from Barbie and her boyfriend Ken.  lol... I think I must have Barbies on my mind lately. 

    Ok,  moving on... be sure to check out the Farm Fresh Challenge blog this weekend and give it a go with the step cards.  If that isn't your thing then use some part of the card (color, design) and play along with us for your chance to win. 
     I hope you all have a great weekend and I will talk at you later.
Hugs, Lisa G

This is gorgeous Lisa, love the papers and how you've added the hook on the ornament! I think Sunday could be the creeper version of Ken doll! LOL!
Sounds like you have the perfect weekend planned! Enjoy your company tonight and have fun crafting! :)
It's been really chilly here in the mornings too, luckily it does climb up into the 40's fairly quickly!

Hi! Lisa...Harry and his brother Murphy were put in the garage as Harry barked everytime we let something go off and Murphy whined and starting chasing the fireworks...for their saftey and our sanity they were locked were not allowed round the front while we were partying..too big and then they scavenge for food...but we let them out when we finished...and then Harry and I went home.

If you want a laugh, pop over to the Teady Bo towers friday fairytale blog..Harry was featured there again.
