Farm Fresh Friday with The Greeting Farm...

April Showers Bring May Flowers:

     Hi guys,  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  I really want to thank you all for the nice comments on the Wedding Invitations.  I am still hard at work on them, but I really wanted to play along with The Farm Fresh Friday Challenge over at the Greeting Farm this week.
     So due to the fact that I wanted to play along and I really really wanted to color up my new Hatter Bean I just couldn't help but take a break from the invitations.  I grabbed my Copics and a couple embossed stickers and came up with what I thought was a kind of backwards card but fun all at the same time.  You might see the front of this one and wonder were are my May flowers, but much like Spring  you really just have to wait for those showers to pass to get to all the beautiful flowers.  lol   So as you can see you have to open this card up to get to the goodies.  :O)  Sorry, I just really am happy with how this came together.
     I hope you all have a great start to your week.. I am back to work and then of course back to getting those 110 invitations done.  Mind you I did not consider that a 110  invitations really meant 110 card bases, 220 corner dies and 220 fancy dies, along with 110 envelopes that need the initial stamped on the back.  Then there is 110 RSVP cards and 110 envelopes that I cut out with my Grand Caliber as well as a 110 reception cards.  lol... Not complaining, just really did not realize how many little things go into making those 110 invitations.  It is a labor of love and I am most honored to do them. A bit nervous as I don't want to mess then up,  but very honored indeed.
      I am  thankful that I was feeling lazy about not really working on them and that is when it occurred to me how much work I needed to get done.  Thank goodness I have been off work since Wednesday our Anniversary  through today.  I really have been able to get a lot of things done and that includes a big amount of those cards.  lmbo...
     Take care everyone and I will talk at you later.
Hugs, Lisa G

This is the front of my card.

This is the inside of my card.  Don't know why there is a glip on the top of it as you can see in the close up
of her that it isn't there.

Okay, I think this is one of my fav cards you have made EVAH! That is so brilliant to do the inside like that and you may not have been coloring for a bit but her hair looks fantastic! Hope all is well with the family and the kitties. Wimbly is adjusting well, still very nervous but getting better.

I love the fun twist that you did with this card, your beautifully colored Hatter Bean becomes such a fun surprise when you open it up... clever!
I'm so glad to hear that you got some time off to enjoy your anniversary with Jerry. You've been working so hard this year and you totally deserved a break! :)
