Let's get 'Sentimental' for this week's Farm Fresh Challenge #16
Good Morning all.
I was going to start off by explaining why I have been more or less absent from my own blog and from visiting all of everyone else's blogs this last week or so. I have been sitting here typing away for about a half hour now and decided that really I think you all can figure out that sometimes life just gets in the way. So that is all I'm going to say. No worries we are all well and even the cats have been up to their usual antics, so I have a great set of pictures to share of them this coming week. It's just been the first of the year "oh my word I'm tired of everything" type of thing. lol...
Ok, now that that is out of the way and I am NOT going to delete this one.... Let me get to Sharette's Monday Fun Day challenge over on TGF Farm Fresh Challenge blog. She would like us all to get sentimental... Not the way you might think.. She would like to see a sentiment on our projects/cards or layouts this week. It doesn't matter how big or small, just so that you can see it. Sounds like fun to me. While you are over checking out the details be sure to check out all of the wonderful creations the rest of the ladies have made for this one. I know you will be inspired. They are all just great. As you all know there have been some awesome stamps that The Greeting Farm has showcased the last couple of releases that I am sure you could use. Just have fun and play along. :O)
As I was doing some "retail therapy" on Thursday during my lunch break I ran into the only somewhat of a craft store we have here and ran smack into some of the newest WeR Memory Keepers -Love Stuck papers. Well the very first thing that came to my mind was that this paper would be perfect with my all time favorite Greeting Farm digi stamps (would love to have them in rubber! hint, hint !!) '50's Sweethearts" of course. I just love this set and what can I say they are already holding a heart so I just couldn't go wrong with this.
I printed them out, used a little clear stamp set from inkadinkado that had the saying 'Love you Lots' and fussy stamped them to fit into my heart. I then used one of the hearts from the set, stamped it ,colored it and put some glossy accents all over it to make is shine. I then cut that out and put it over her music notes of her skirt so she looks like her and her sweetie are ready to go out dancing once he gives her that HUGH box of 'fat free, but very delishish' Chocolates. hehee...
As you can see I used quite a bit of the papers from the 6x6 paper pad along with some of the adorable 'Heart Gumdrop brands and the bottle caps.' Just had to have them all. I told you I was doing 'retail therapy' and I have to say that it truly helped as this weekend was the first time in over a week that I felt like making any kind of card.
Well guys, I have pulled your eyes for long enough. I know that most everyone is off tomorrow for the holiday, but I have to work so I am going to grab my Nook and go read for a little while before hitting that snooze alarm in the AM.. lol.. I hope that you all have a great day. I am also hoping to have a new card to share tomorrow as well. So until then, I will talk at you later.
Hugs, Lisa G
